Windows 7 + Artnet

From MXWendler Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This applies to Windows 7 and MXWendler version 4.2 and above

Problem

Art-Net does not start. MXWendler Logwin says 'Network interface 192.168.4.20 not found'.

Solution

1. Windows offers many network interfaces, let MXWendler know which one is the one you want to use.
2. You need to name the correct network interface by its IP address. To find out your current IP address:

Enter Win+R and type cmd and press enter,
Type ipconfig in the cmd window,
Enter the IP address in the network interface field like 192.168.4.20

3. Make sure that the administrator user account has a password set.
4. Turn off all firewalls.

Tip: Use the free 'DMX Workshop' from 'Artistic License' to test Art-Net functionality.
