Perseus Issues with Bobsmeter
« on: November 12, 2014, 0237 UTC »
Does anyone out there own a Perseus and use the BobSmeter? I used to get it to work but for some reason, it will not talk to it anymore.  I use VSPE for com port emulation.  Any help would be much appreciated.

Are you starting VSPE first before you start the Perseus?  If yes, then does it say "VCom On" in the lower right corner of the Perseus display?

Thanks for the reply. OK... I started VSPE and set it to Com port 10 and turned on my Perseus and VCom is on.  However, when I open up the BobSmeter, it will not work and a window shows up and says " Perseus is off, Please start it.  Do you know what needs to be configured at this point to get it to work.  VSPE is set to COM 10 and so is the BobSmeter.  Is this correct or should it be configured another way?

I got it to work.  I had to turn the "Check Perseus" function off so everything looks like it is working now.  A lot of trial and error...instructions are not that detailed.
