Having installed the CY3271 software when I go to start|all programs|cypress|sense and control dashboard|sense and control dashboard|, I get a message box which says "application already running".

When I look in task manager there are no applications listed!

Any ideas?

Brian:

In task manager, go to the processes tab and end the process named: SCD.exe

Hope this helps

If you just installed it, try rebooting and then opening the program.

Thanks

Shone,

Thanks for the quick response.

Did as you said. Now my attempt to start gives a .NET Framework message box:

"Could not load file or assembly 'System.Data.SqlServerCe,Version=3.5.1.0,Culture=netralPublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

Hi Brian,

Did you allow the Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition to install completely on your system, as part of the installation of SCD?

Hello Brian,

Please write your Operation System version.

Could you try to install Microsoft SQL Server Compact 3.5 Service Pack 1 separately

http://www.microsoft.com/downl...3384D9&displaylang=en

and try to run SCD software again. It should help. If installation of SQL Server Compact fail SCD can't function.

I cannot see Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition in Control Panel | Add remove programs. Should it be there?

Hi Brian,

Yes, there should be. SQL server installs as part of the SCD installation, and must be installed before SCD will work.

Please try running SCD installation again, and ensure that the MS SQL server installation goes through succesfully.

Hello Brian,

There are two signs that Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition installed correctly:

1. It appeared in

Add Remove Program:

Like at image:

Add Remove Program dialog

2. This is the main. If Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition installed correctly that it should register assembly in Global Assembly Cache. You can check this by opening Windows Explorer folder "C:\WINDOWS\assembly" and scroll to element "System.Data.SqlServerCe" with version 3.5.1.0 like at bottom image.

Installed into Global Assembly Cache

If this element not present than it is mean that Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition can't be installed correctly.

To diagnose the cause of the problem:

1. Download msi:

Microsoft SQL Server Compact 3.5 Service Pack 1

2. Run from command line this command:

msiexec /i SSCERuntime-ENU-x86.msi /lvx c:\SQLCompact.txt

3. Open file c:\SQLCompact.txt in notepad and find step there installation failed. Correct this and repeat steps until you can successfully install.

Some tip: The common problem with Windows installer that it sometimes can't access to registry keys, this can be caused by incorrect windows installation, system protections software(antivirus, firewals). If you find in log file that installer can't access to some registry key, check access permission of this key. User SYSTEM should have at least permission to read from this key in Access Control List.

If you can't detect problem than upload installation log and attach link to him in your post and I'm try to help.

Regards, Petro.
