Issues/Problems / Re: Windows 10 Pro 32bits upgrade
« Last post by James_Pickard on February 03, 2020, 08:46:59 am »
Hi bonocchio,

Thank you for reaching out to us. 

There's a number of issues here:

Support for Windows 7 has been dropped by Microsoft and hence also by Medmont International.

If you're running Medmont Studio 6, this requires 8GB of ram which necessitates a 64bit operating system.  So you will need to move to a 64bit operating system; we would recommend Windows 10 Professional.

You can find the computer requirements listed here:
https://www.medmont.com/media/52102/medmont-studio-base-requirements-627.pdf

If you're running Medmont Studio 5, this is unsupported on Windows 10 and you will need to upgrade to Medmont Studio 6.

The Leutron cards are very fragile and can often get damaged moving from one computer to another. 

From the sounds of it, your E300 topographer is fairly old and likely beyond it's 8 year service life.  In which case we would recommend replacement for a new warranty, new service life and an updated license for  Medmont Studio 6.

We can look up age of your unit from the serial number located at the bottom side of the tower.  Alternatively, it may also have a build date listed on it. 

If you want more information about replacement, please contact our Netherlands distributor listed on our contacts page:

Kind regards,

Issues/Problems / Windows 10 Pro 32bits upgrade
« Last post by bonocchio on February 01, 2020, 09:46:19 pm »
Dear experts,

I have a dell vostro pc with windows pro 32 bits, if I upgrade my system (windows 7 pro now) to windows 10 pro 32bits  I am wondering if my E300 topographer still will work fine?
The topographer is connected through the Leutron pci card. The owner of the Medmont dealer in The Netherlands told me this wouldn't be a problem, but the technician told me it can be a problem!?? I do have friends who told me that this works with their system.

And if I buy a new pc with pci interface would work too?

Please advise

Hi nergal,

Your E300 Topographer is now 13yo and beyond it's service life.  This means we will be unable to support or repair it.  We would recommend a replacement for continued ongoing accurate exams. 

You can contact one of our African distributors, their contact details are listed here:

However, I will forward you the CAL file for your reference also.

Kind regards,

James

Replacing the Patient Switch did not do the magic I was hoping for. Back to square one.

Thanks James,

much appreciated. This was not meant to be a service request. Sorry if I gave that impression. I know the age of the machine is 15 years, but that doesn't mean I won't try to fix it.

I thought this is a forum for Medmont users where I could just post the problem we are experiencing in the hope that someone has had something similar.

For those who are interested, I have now tried to use a powered USB connection, but that didn't do the trick unfortunately. Will try to replace the patient switch. Maybe that one is the culprit.

Hi rkuske,

Thanks for that information.  Unfortunately the unit is 15yo and well beyond it's service life.  We're unable to repair or support it.

Unfortunately it's not something we've ever heard of (patient switch affecting background illumination levels).

However, there are a couple of things you could try.  The powered USB hub could be worth a try if you have one around.  I would also suggest connecting the bowl into a USB 2.0 port (at the rear of the desktop, not the front if using one) using as short a possible USB cable. 
The other thing you could try is replacing the patient switch.  While there's no guarantees it will fix the problem, it could be worth trying.  Please contact our NZ distributor who's contact details are here under Australia (apologies for that):

Kind regards,

So it is an M700(Serial Number M434130) and I am running it with Studio 6. And yes, the switch presses are correctly detected and recorded by the software. The only thing I can now think of is that we changed to a Win10 machine about half a year ago which doesn't have a serial port or VGA port anymore, so we are running the M700 through a USB port. Maybe not enough power? Was thinking of adding a powered USB hub to the laptop maybe? Best regards, Reiner

Hi rkuske,

That is certainly an interesting issue we've not heard of before. 

Can I get the serial number of the visual field?
Is it an M700 or M600?

Are the patient switch presses being detected correctly in the software?

Kind regards,

James

Issues/Problems / M700 Background Lighting dims slightly when clicking

I am not sure if it has always been like this, but it seems that the background lighting is slightly dimming every time one clicks the button. Have checked all connections and they seem ok. Any suggestions what else to test? Would the test results be influenced by this?
