    Layout of the FMC tutorial

    Hello Nico,

    Just a quick post here. I have managed to generate the correct "Key Codes" for all of my CDU buttons through the USBKeys Card, and have sucessfully managed to transfer them into the 767FMCKeys.txt file, with the exception of the LSKs.

    When you say LSK1 (in the notepad file), are you referring to the top LSK or the bottom LSK?

    Furthermore, I'm experiencing huge problems when it comes to Step 8. Many things go wrong, such as I'm not sure how to overwrite the current SIOC.ini - I tried to do this, by deleting all that was within the SIOC.ini file and replacing it with the code given in the tutorial... But when I started SIOC up it said "File Not Found!", and acts strangely. Also, when LekseeconX is started it says "Configuration File not found", so I just reverted back to the old SIOC.ini

    Finally, the tutorial says "replace 1004 with device number" - What does this means exactly? I tried replacing it with the number "53" (that's what SIOC says is the device number), but no luck.

    Thanks,

    Jack

    The LSK1 is the top LSK, see the Level-D Operations Manual & Guide, page 99.

    With 'overwriting a file' - in programmers language- one means to say that a (possibly existing) file with the same name may be overwriten (replaced). If there is no such a file, then there is no problem at all, just create the first version of sioc.ini.

    However, it is weird that you do not have a sioc.ini file in your SIOC folder. Every fresh installation comes with such a file ...

    Hi Nico,

    I think I edited post when you made yours. I have found the file now, just having problems "overwriting" it.

    Thanks,

    Jack

    Then just delete the old sioc.ini and create a new one, with content as specified in the tutorial.

    What to do with 1004 is well described in steps 8, 9 and 10 of the tutorial ...

    Hi Nico,

    I am exactly aware of what to do in reagrds to replacing 1004, but it doesn't work.

    I replace it with 53 (the device number in the main SIOC window) but it isn't accepted.

    Furthermore, the SIOC.ini file is a config file. In notepad, I can only create .txt files, not .ini files.

    No, no, no, no.....
    A sioc.ini file is also a txt file, but with extension .ini
    Just Save As ... and fill in comple file name: sioc.ini
    (or alternatively (but not necessary), save as sioc.txt and then rename to sioc.ini)

    Just some theory:
    A text file is a file with ASCII characters. To be cretaed by editor programs such as Notepad. The extension of the file does not have to be .txt, but may be everything you like, such as .ini or .log or .bak or ...

    Re: Layout of the FMC tutorial

    Okay, I seem to have overwritten the file correctly.

    Strangely, when I start SIOC, it comes up with "File not found", but then starts SIOC and all looks okay...

    However, LekseeconX comes up with the error "Configuration File Not found".

    So yes, there seems to be a problem with the new SIOC.ini file.

    Re: Layout of the FMC tutorial

    In your sioc.ini I see this line:
    USBKeys=0,2048
    So you have replaced 1004 by 2048? That cannot be true, I thought you replaced it by 53....

    log file:
    Are you sure that FMC767Keys.ssi is in your SIOC folder, it does not look like that... (did you execute step 7 of the tutorial?)

    Also check the SIOC main window to see it has read the FMC767Keys.ssi file, which I doubt because of the File not Found message you were talking about..
