We have recently discovered that Cobalt fixture library update version 15.4.0 onwards (Oct 2019) may not be usable on XP Congo family consoles as they have grown too large for these consoles and the Import Template Wizard may time out and cause a crash.
XP consoles can be distinguished as they have one (1) RJ45 network jack.
If you have an XP console and need fixtures from a newer library, we recommend using a Windows 7 console, or Cobalt ETCnomad (at the same version as on your XP console) on a PC to import the templates into your ASC showfile.
Once imported into a showfile it may be patched and repatched on any Congo and Cobalt family console.
Thanks for this tip... where can we find the last operational library for cobalt 7.3.1 running on Xp system ?
Cobalt Family v7.1 - 8.2 Library Update 15.3.4
Thanks... I have a congo senior running Cobalt 7.3.1 with a library 16.0.1 on Xp system. Something wrong ?
If not, can we get this library to have the sameone in the other desk of venue ?
There is nothing wrong if it is working for you. However, you may experience a crash when opening the Import Template Wizard to insert new fixtures into your show. If you experience this, you would want to install an older library update instead and use a computer running ETCnomad Cobalt and the newer library update to insert the template into your show.
