Here’s a tester for you. I need to upload a program from a Panelview plus screen. I don’t know the IP address and I don’t know the name of the downloaded program on the panelview.May 26, 2019 at 10:15 am #4168PLCGuruKeymaster
Hi Trevor, I would recommend connecting a USB or campact flash to the back, then launch into ME station. From here you should be able to just transfer everything from the terminal to your removable storage.

Couple of ways to attack this one. First is get the IP. Plug into a router where its passing ip traffic, Just run a capture and filter for ARP… then pull the eth cable off the OIT. It’ll take about 15 seconds for the ARPs to give up the address.
secondly you could just make a batch file and call it autostart.bat put in on a USB. Has to be in the Root Dir. When you stick it in the OIT the win CE will start running the batch. You COULD actually have the script transfer the .apa folder to the USB device, but i can’t ever remember the directory structure of that rediculous win CE crap so I usually just have it throw a sysmon, or crash sys32.dll and it kicks open the windows desktop.
there is also a keyboard combo you can use on startup of the PVP that will force load windows desktop. I’m pretty sure there is a KB article about that if you need me to I’ll print it to PDF and post. Assuming you have a usb keyboard in your toolkit. You have one right?

Depending on the panel view you can power it down. Resart it and press and hold a white square wch pops onon corner it will take you to the panel vieww settings where u are able to view ip address and the running runtime and even other runtime stored in the panel view.May 26, 2019 at 11:42 pm #4171Sean TerrellModeratorKarma: 187Rank: Jedi
Good call, it’s been a while since Ive noticed the white squares… but i have used those lifesavers a couple times. Unfortunately, im pretty sure the security risks, of accessing winCE, along with the awesome security of.. well… winCE, had IT departments losing their minds.May 27, 2019 at 7:26 am #4172fleeter1ParticipantKarma: 102Rank: Jedi
Thanks for the responses. Fred and I talked about this last week and I just wanted to get other feedback. Rebooting and looking for the “settings” button is a good suggestion from Mackenzie, if it is a newer terminal. The USB option sounds interesting. Will have to give that a try
