    Datalux touchscreen problems...

    (moving this to the right section)

    Anyone have any ideas? I have a LMV10RB but I'm having some problems with the touchscreen. Actually the touch does not work at all (though the rest of the monitor works great.) I think I have all the proper drivers, but I've tried it on two seperate machines and neither even detects the touchscreen is plugged into the serial port. Scans on all bauds/channels, but does not find anything.

    The programs I'm using to get this working are Touchware by Microstouch and the microcal utility, all provided by the folks at Datalux.

    I bought the screen used so I don't know the history on it. It appears to have been made in 4/98. SN 83-188271-

    Any thoughts?

    Same Problem!

    Its too bad no one has responded because I am having the exact same problem. Im also uing the touchware software and it scans all the com ports and does not detect the touch screen at all, which i have hooked up to my serial port. I dont know what to do, have you since found a solution to the problem????? OR can anyone else help with this problem??

    I purchased my Datalux LMV10R from jpainter... he seems to know his stuff about them. When I first received mine, I had a little trouble getting it all set up... my problem turned out to be the baud rate setting in the touchware settings... I don't recall what it needs to be set to, but if you haven't played with that, try adjusting and testing with different settings. I want to say it was set at 9600 but could be wrong.

    TTYL!

    I'll have to look again, but as I recall the software automatically searched all the possible baud rates-- and still found nothing...

    Coincindentally i also have purchased from jpainter, although i didnt buy my datalux screen from him, only a custom made power adpater which hooks up to the Power supply unit in my computer rather then the one that plugs into a wall socket (pretty cool!). Anyways i have his email so i guess i will try asking him.

    I would try changing the baud rate, but you can not adjust that setting until the touch screen controller is found on one of the com ports. Since it cannot be found, (it just keeps asking me if i want to choose another com port, but none of them find it) I cannot adjust the baud rate.

    My screen did not come with a cd so i just downloaded the touchware drivers from the link on datalux's site. I think i have the right drivers and they are probably not the problem but; i am not exactly sure if they are the right ones for my screen because datalux's site doesnt have the greatest driver support.
