Latest JEOL Driver Version
« on: March 27, 2014, 12:07:35 PM »
The latest JEOL driver version 1.6.2 fixes a rare but nasty "same command executed" error (1004) that can occur on 8230 and 8530 instruments.

Please contact Probe Software for an updated JEOL driver.

All,
If you buy a new computer for your lab (e.g., Win 7 64 bit), you will need to move the existing JEOL driver from the old computer to the new computer. Otherwise you will get the following error when you try to connect to the instrument:

File not found: amb_jeol8x00.dll

Here are some tips:

1. To begin with you will need to contact us for a new registration code once you see the following dialog on starting Probe for EPMA:



You should click the Copy button and paste the serial number into an email and send it to us. We will respond as soon as we can with a registration code. Just copy and paste the supplied registration code into the registration field and click the Register button.

2. The old driver will normally be in the Windows\System32 folder. Simply copy the amb_jeol8x00.dll file from the old computer to the new computer and place it in the following folder depending on the OS:

All 32 bit Windows OS systems: C:\Windows\System32
All 64 bit Windows OS systems: C:\Windows\SysWOW64

That is all!

Thank you so much, John. I've successfully replaced the Windows XP computer with a Windows 7 computer.

The latest JEOL driver DLL is 2.02, just minor internal changes:

What's New
==========
Version 2.0.2 - 25-Mar-2015
---------------------------
  - Cleanup of bug in new initialization code.


Version 2.0.1 - 6-Mar-2015
--------------------------
  - Cleanup of some of the initialization code.


Version 2.0.0 - 28-Jun-2014
---------------------------
  - Changes to the log generation to be more Windows 7 (and later) compatible. Log
    files are now created in the users Documents location instead of the folder that
    holds the executable (this folder may not be writeable). Log file name will be
    generated from the app name as - <appname>_J8X00.log
  - Improvements to the build system

Contact Probe Software to receive this new DLL.

What's New
==========
Version 2.0.3 - 25-Aug-2015
---------------------------
  - Added support for Probe for EPMA's new common app data folder for
    initialization parameters.
