Compatibility of FBox libraries from Engiby with PG5 2.0 SP1

FAQ #101479

The FBox libraries from Engiby for PG5 2.0.110 can not be used in PG5 2.0.150 because of internal changes of PG5 2.0.150 which lead to the fact that the library installer is not able to register the FBox libraries.


The FBox libraries from Engiby (e.g. the "Modbus 2" or "M-Bus" drivers) as well as the Add-on tools provided from Engiby for PG5 2.0.110 can not be installed on PG5 2.0.150.

Due to modifications between PG5 2.0.110 and PG5 2.0.150 the installer for the FBox libraries from Engiby (and probably also other third-party FBoxes) is no longer able to register the license properly.

    The new folder used by PG5 2.0.150 and later is "c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Saia Burgess\LocalDir"
    Folder names can varry depending on Windows version and language. Folders may also be invisible or need administrator right.
