On 16 bit registers you can specify bits like 40001.0

If you are reading 32 bit address such as L40001, this doesn't work on a bit level, but since L40001 is really just 40001 and 40002, you can get to all the bits by referring to the individual 16 bit parts:

L40001.0 = 40001.0
L40001.16 = 40002.0

I tried to follow the video and download VB but all I can find is cloud **** and not an installable version of VB. Is there a current link to the VB download page?

Thanks

For commercial use, scroll down this page until it says "still want visual studio express?"
https://www.visualstudio.com/vs/visual-studio-express/

For certain use cases, you are allowed to use the community edition. Check the permitted usage scenarios and check with your legal department if they apply to you.
The download for this is available on the same page as above, "download community 2017"
Or you can download it here.
https://www.visualstudio.com/vs/community/

In the future I suspect VB.net will be native in visual studio code, which will be the replacement free development tool for the retiring Visual studio express. I am no oracle though.

When installing VS 2017, be sure to select the Desktop application option as explained here:

I posted a GenericTCPClient component for AdvancedHMI. It can be downloaded from here:

My experience is that if you mention the bugs, they typically get fixed. Reporting bugs makes for a better product for everyone.

I'm not sure what version you were using bug they very well may have already been addressed.

I've done 4 projects with AHMI, not one issue after deployment. As mentioned, if you found bugs you should have mentioned them. They would have been dealt with quickly. Since we most likely used the same base project, I'm going to say the issues you had were probably self induced. Unlike other platforms, there isn't a lot of protection from users who do silly things. It's up to the developer to police themselves. You are the developer.
