eCockpit - unable to start simulation

  • arnaud - 2023-08-25

    Hi there!

    I'm using eCockpit WAGO software to develop HMI's for multiple projects. As I recently starting this, my knowledge on the software is somewhat limited (so maybe my question is a simple one). For most of my projects I can simulate the application and start it to test the code and HMI. However for two projects, I can initiate the "simulation activation" but I cannot start it. Nothing happens when I press start and the visualization shows "The online visualization is waiting for connection. please start the application".
    - I don't see any errors in the messages
    - Initially the project are made by a colleague, which moved on.

    I guess I'm forgetting something, like missing a setting. I appreciate any help I can get.

    If you need more information to help me out, let me know.

    You need to start the application, see the "start" option at the top left (next to close simulation).

    This is a known bug in e!Cockpit. See Release notes of V 1.11:

    1 e!Cockpit Release Version 1.11 (2022-07)
    ATTENTION: If a library that uses asynchronous tasks (e.g. WagoAppConfigTool, WagoAppCloud or
    function modules such as Dali-Master) is dragged into the project, the simulation cannot be started.
    It is already sufficient to add the library to the project (an FB does not even have to be instantiated).

    I guess you are using one of these libraries/modules in your project. We e.G. often use PWM modules, these are also affected.
