So I thought I had all my ducks in a row to update my SNAP-PAC-R1 firmware to R10.4d without losing my calibrated points. I backed up my control strategy, then used OptoTagPreserve to upload my tags. I updated the firmware using Manager and then I’ll admit, at first I forgot to re-load my strategy. So I ran the restore function of OptoTagPreserve and it obviously failed because of the missing tags. I loaded my control strategy by selecting debug in Control (I didn’t run it). Then I went back to the command line and attempted again to restore my tags. It progressed normally until it just seemingly hung at “Restoring tags…might take some time!”. I’ve got maybe 100 tags, which seeing what this equipment is designed for, has to be a small quantity. It also took a relatively short time to create the file during the upload process. I waited ~7 hours before killing it with ctrl+c. I reloaded the firmware and control strategy and it’s now sitting at the same thing in the command line.
Any advise would be appreciated. I haven’t updated the software to 10.4003 yet, I was going to do that afterwards. I have another controller to update but don’t want to touch it until this is sorted - there are a lot more tag values I don’t want to lose on that one.
