I decided to take your suggestion #3 and start with a clean machine. I have a second computer from which I removed all smarthome related software using Add/Remove. I also deleted all instances of SDM3.exe. I am also using a different PLC (2814U) on this computer. I installed houselink and then the utility. At this point houselinc and the utility show up in Add/Remove, but there is no Device Manager listed. The SDM3.exe is located in C:Program FilesSmartLabsHouseLinc Desktop. This is the default location installed by houselinc.
Here are the SDM Logs:
RUNNING JUST THE UTILITY:
SDM:DM=active,1.01.138.308,4/8/2007 1:20:56 PM,responded,00.D5.70,2.12,xdevices=True
THIS TIME RUNNING FIRST HOUSELINC:
SDM:DM=active,1.01.138.308,4/8/2007 1:23:19 PM,responded,00.D5.70,2.12,xdevices=True
THEN RUNNING THE UTILITY ONLY ADDS THE FOLLOWING LINE:
But at this point the utility runs fine. On my main machine the Device Manager shows up in Add/Remove, it does not show up now. Do I also have to install the SDM308 separately for it to show up in Add/Remove, and if so what location. The default is C:Program FilesCommon FilesSmarthomeDevice Manager, which is different from what Houselinc did above.
So far, I only have only installed houselinc and the utility on this computer with the above results. Any other suggestions ?
