Problem with S7 Manager and Win10,




The programming window is minimized when I pusch Enter or right click on the mouce when I try to change the input in the program.!!??1
I'm not getting anything done here, so I'm going crazy ..

I have checked the settings in the S7 manager finds nothing obvious there ..
Have no idea what settings in Win10 can set this sort of thing ??
New computer ..
None of my colleagues seem to have the problem.

Please, does anyone have any idea what might be wrong?

Thanks smile
You are probably right, if you as a mechanic are the only one who will come to my rescue winky smile then I am probably is in the wrong place. LOL
I would have gone the european Siemens support web site but it is so big .. sigh .. probably bigger then in the USA.
I think this problem is a Win10 problem .. but they may still know what the problem is.
Thanks anyway.

And Merry Christmas A

Only a meager thought but can't you tell Win10 to treat the program as some earlier windoz version? Try running it under several.

That would be the compatibility setting, which now only goes back as far as Vista; rats, just a few months ago, I could still get XP

I have tried the compatibility setting, though it should not be necessary.
This version should be compatible with Win10 ??
I have talked to some colleagues who have the same set up, but have no problems.
Now it was not me who installed the Siemens software program but some one from IT who did it for me, so I do not really know what has happened here?!?
Maby I have to check with a colleague about the versions...
Seems to be a lot of the same here ??!!

Unfortunately, the openness of Windows allows for a rich diversity of software, but it's still like the Wild West, and I've had SW work one day, and stop the next, because of an errant update, and the next update winds up fixing itself.
