File description cannot be processed
« on: September 25, 2015, 04:22:17 PM »
It looks like I'm going to climb this ladder one support message after the other...
Now that I can access my USB drive (Johannes, I indeed needed to be in the administrator user group), the pendant will not allow me to copy my .src file to the kuka program folder.
The error message is "File description cannot be processed".

Is there a " kuka for dummies book somewhere " ?

Cheers,

I can send you some PDFs that are helpful, but file-handling isn't really a common topic as most manuals seem to assume that the user is mostly teaching the robot, rather than using external files.
Where did you try to copy it? We usually put our files into the [Robot Icon]/R1/Program folder

Try to copy the file to D: and see if that changes anything. Remember that you're using technology that is old in IT-terms, so the issue may be as low-level as that your particular USB stick just doesn't work with your robot.. If you're using a new USB stick, chances are good that its capacity is higher than the robot's HDD ;)

Best,
Johannes

Hi Johannes,
The content of the Usb is displayed properly, and the file is tiny.
I just use "Edit+copy" and then move to the robot icon, in "programs" where I have a few test .src's that i made using the teaching method.
There, I just use "Edit+paste" and istead of pasting, I get this message.

Could it be something with the header ?
Or perhaps the .src file that is written by your program is not compatible "as is" with KRC2 ?

Frustrating times...
I have only one afternoon per week to get things moving, and I keep bumping into these kinds of silly problems...

Hello,

If the code has problems, the robot will tell you where the error is (at line X).
I think that I wrote that before, but open the *.src file in a text editor and see if there is any content.
Attached to this post is a random *.src file - I wouldn't recommend to run it, but see if you can copy it to the robot and select it via the control panel.

Best,
Johannes

And did you try copying a file to D: as I suggested before?

For anyone with a similar problem:
I tried the file on a KRC4 and got the error message "Inadmissible module name" which is more helpful than on KRC2.
Turns out there was an empty space in the filename and projectname (with probably the latter causing the issues).
We just pushed out a new KUKA|prc member release, the version after that (in 1-3 weeks) will check for empty spaces (and not just for numbers at the beginning of a project name, which also wouldn't work).

Best,
Johannes
