Why does PG5 1.4 show the error message "downloader not found" on HW settings download?

FAQ #101721

This error occurs only on PCs equipped with Win7 64 bit and PG5 1.4 where the hardwaer configuration is done with the help of the Device Configurator.



On such PCs it isn't possible to download the hardware configuration directly from the device configurator since each time the error message "downloader not found (-1)" is displayed.

To load the HW configuration on concerned PCs please execute the following steps:

  • Define your configuration as needed in the Device Configurator
  • Save the configuration and close the Device Configurator
  • In the PG5 1.4 Project Manager select the menu "Online" --> "Hardware Settings" --> "Download" and click to the download button on the opening window.
