BrainWare Tech Notes

DDE communication from 64-bit Matlab to BrainWare fails

TN0956

Product: BrainWare
Version: All
Date Added: 2015-07-31

Issue

64-bit Matlab does not support DDE functionality. See http://www.mathworks.com/products/matlab/preparing-for-64-bit-windows.html.

Workaround

If using the DDE functionality in BrainWare, use a 32-bit version of Matlab.

PA5 not responding in BrainWare

TN0857

Product: BrainWare
Version: 9.07
Date Added: 2009-06-02

Issue

The BrainWare PA5 dlls are not compatible with TDT ActiveX Controls v68.

Solution

Upgrade to the latest version of TDT drivers, ActiveX and BrainWare.

'Action canceled' or 'The page cannot be displayed' errors displayed when opening a help file downloaded from TDT Website

TN0188

Product: BrainWare, SykoFizX
Version: Any Downloaded from Web
Date Added: 2005-06-22

Issue

Computers using Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 will place a block on compiled help files (*.chm) that are downloaded from the Internet. The block will interfere with the operation of the help file and an 'Action canceled' or 'The page cannot be displayed' error will be displayed in the topic pane. The problem is caused by security features introduced in the service packs designed to reduce vulnerabilities in HTML help.

Workaround

After downloading the document, open it from the location where it was saved, and a security warning will appear. In order to view the help documents properly, the check mark must be cleared from the 'Always ask before opening this file' check box. The files will then open properly from the PC. Alternatively, right-click on the file you want to open, click Properties, and then click Unblock.

'Triggering on zBus Trig A failed! Stimulation/recording halted!' error in BrainWare

TN0173

Product: BrainWare
Version: < 8.2
Date Added: 2005-03-10

Issue

BrainWare returns a "Triggering on zBus Trig A failed! Stimulation/recording halted!" error. In ActiveX v5.8, invoking a zTrigA or zTrigB calls always returns a zero, regardless of whether the trigger occurred. When BrainWare invokes this call and a zero is returned, it assumes that the zTrig failed.

Solution

Upgrade to latest version of BrainWare.

BrainWare displays an Access Violation error

TN0170

Product: BrainWare
Version: 7.3
Date Added: 2005-03-07

Issue

BrainWare displays an Access Violation error when the user selects an RCO for the recording device or attempts to disconnect the recording device. The error message might appear repeatedly.

Workaround

To resolve this issue, select the RCO or attempt to disconnect the recording device repeatedly until the error is no longer displayed. The error does not influence recording once an RCO is selected.

'Access to path and application was denied' error message

TN0122

Product: OpenEx, BrainWare
Version: All
Date Added: 2004-06-15

Issue

If you are using the Windows XP or Windows 2000 operating system and you do not have administrator privileges, an "access to path and application was denied" error message will be displayed when attempting to run an OpenEx project or when exiting BrainWare. Both BrainWare and OpenEx modify the registry on your Local Machine (that is, the PC on which you run the application). Windows requires that users have administrator level privileges to modify the Local Machine registry.

Workaround

Ensure that all users have administrator level access.
