PLIN-view bugs

Post by itsi95 » Fri 10. Jul 2020, 06:26

I'm using the PCAN-USB Pro FD. I've tried to use it on the Ubuntu OS but had to move back to Windows, because of better software and no LIN drivers.
On Windows 10 I've used PCAN-view for a few months without any problem, but now I have to use the PLIN-view and I've found two things.
1) Every time I switch on my PC, I can see the CAN LEDS are flashing while LIN LEDS are off. After long research I've found I can run Peak-Drivers 4.2.0 from the Windows Apps and Functions Settings tab and click Repair. Then finally I see both LEDS flashing. It is all because of a Device Manager not running, which is running only for PCAN... I attach proper screenshots. It's annoying to have to do it every time...
2) If I use PLIN in slave mode and try to add a new frame as Publisher, but I do not change the checksum type to Enhanced/Classic a message occures that the checksum couldn't be used. It's ok. Than I choose e.g. Enhanced checksum and a error window occurs. I can click continue and use the PLIN-view correctly, but the error box is annoying too.
