Multiple IOW24's

Post by eamo »

Hi,
Im have trouble trying to use multiple IOW24's, i have two connected and am trying to acquire the serial numbers from each device, i used the SimpleIIC example as a guide but both devices are returning the same number.

Code: Select all

   WCHAR s[9];
	IOWKIT_HANDLE ioHandle;
	IOWKIT_HANDLE handles[16];
	IOWKIT_HANDLE tempHandle;

	ioHandle = IowKitOpenDevice();
	int numDevs = IowKitGetNumDevs();
	for(int i = 0; i < numDevs; i++)
	{
		tempHandle = IowKitGetDeviceHandle(i+1);
		handles[i] = tempHandle;
		IowKitGetSerialNumber(handles[i], s);
		cout << s << endl;
		IowKitSetTimeout(handles[i],1000);
	}

	IowKitCloseDevice(ioHandle);
Image

Thanks,
Eamonn

Take a look into the samples into the SDK. The SimpleIO-Sample for C shows how to get all serialnumbers from all devices.

Code: Select all

//Line 58 ... 70

	// Get number of IOWs in system
	numIows = IowKitGetNumDevs();
	printf("%d IOWs in system\n", numIows);
	// Get all IOW handles
	for (i = 0; i < numIows; i++)
	{
		// Get device handle and init object
		iows[i] = IowKitGetDeviceHandle(i + 1);
		// Get serial number
		IowKitGetSerialNumber(iows[i], sn);
		pid = IowKitGetProductId(iows[i]);
		printf("%d PID %x, S/N \"%ws\"\n", i + 1, pid, sn);
	}

thanks, the examples where helpful, is there a version of iowkit.lib in OMF format as i am using Borland Turbo C++ and I think that converting the .lib from COFF to OMF may have impaired the functionality. I can get it to work as i want in VC++ 2010 but i need to use it with borland.

No, we don't have the DLL in other formats. But the source of the DLL is part of the SDK, so you can recompile it with the required options.

Is it possible to access different IOWarriors from separate programs on the same machine?

Not with the iowkit.dll version 1.5. This is to prevent malfunctions.
But you can use the "IOWarrior Socket Server" from Greinert http://www.iowss.greinert-dud.de/.
