In a nutshell…we have been working on getting the software installed as a testing means and have no issues running the software in a profile that has admin rights. However, as I am sure you are familiar with…students don’t get admin rights to their profile…and so it prompts for credentials to run, when a student login is at the helm. Is there a way to get DobotStudio to run for students who do not have admin rights?
wow! This is an easy one! Thanks to Christian Hunter fromInPosition Technologies; the Leader in Dobot sales in the US. For more information or to buy Dobot Magicians go HERE. Here is Christian’s solution:
Yes, there are 2 versions of the software. If you run “DobotStudioX” it doesn’t require admin rights. It should be at this, or a similar location, depending on where they saved the software on their PC.
One way to do it, and this works especially well on older computers or ones with low end graphics, is to turn off Add-ins. Most of these are not necessary when you do most things in Inventor, so you can have Inventor start with them turned off by default. To do this just go to the Tools tab, Click on Add-Ins, and turn them all off EXCEPT for the ones in the red rectangles in the picture below. In order to turn them off, click on the ones you do not want, and uncheck the load automatically check box under load behavior. DONE! Inventor should load faster now.
How do I make my Dobot Magician talk to a VEX Cortex?
It’s called handshaking and it is probably one of the more difficult tasks when working with robots and machines. We use an optical isolator so as not to damage any of the equipment with incompatible voltages, so be sure to see the website for the wiring diagrams.
