How do I get my InteractX project off of my old unit and onto my new IPX Powerstation?

How do I get my InteractX project off of my old unit and onto my new IPX Powestation?

 

What you will need to get started:

HPX

IPX

USB Stick

Keyboard and Mouse

Ability to get to the HPX desktop and access the Deployment Server

 

To get the application currently on the HPX powerstation, do the following:

1.       Insert the USB stick into the HPX

2.       Power up the unit and exit the project to get to the Windows desktop. 

3.       In the system tray down by the clock, there is a black circle with a gray boarder.  This is the “Deployment Server.”  Right click on the deployment server and select Upload Applications to Disk.

4.       In the Disk Connections Properties box, browse to a location on your USB Stick.

5.       Click Finish.

6.       The deployment server will then begin to bundle the files.  The deployment server icon by the clock will begin to blink green while bundling is in process.

7.       The file on the USB stick will have a .odi extension.

8.       Safely remove the USB stick from the HPX and place it in the new IPX.

Now that you have a copy of the runtime files on your USB stick, you can now download to your new IPX.

Keep in mind that the IPX currently has InteractX version 3.6 installed.  Since it is recommended that your InteractX runtime versions match, you will need to back rev your IPX to the appropriate version.   You can do this by uninstalling InteractX version 3.6 and installing the appropriate InteractX version you are running. 

For install CDs, please visit our website www.parkermotion.com for information.

Once you have the correct version installed on your IPX:

1.       Right click on the deployment server and select Download From Disk.

2.       On the Disk Connections Properties window, browse to the .odi file on your USB stick.

3.       Click Finish.

4.       The deployment server will then begin to unbundle the files.  When prompted to delete the selected file, click “No.”

5.       Once complete, InteractX will ask if you would like to launch InteractX runtime.  Select yes if you would like your application to run.
