  • Windows 7 x64 Install

    In searching through the board I noticed it looks like people have been successful at getting mcsTemperature to work. I am not having the same luck and was wondering if someone could let me know which pieces and versions of sofware are needed? Drivers, MS JVM?, etc.

    If you want to run 1-wire with it then you need MSJVM and the the DallasSemiconductor drivers ""
    If you want charts then you need the COM/ASP version of chart director which should be at "". It uses some VB6 controls such as Winsock. I believe I have a zip file on the ADIOcelot forum that contains the full collection of all controls that I have used in various plugins.

      When I try to install the v400 driver I get a message that says it is not compatible with 64-bit Windows. I tried to install it using compatibility mode but I still get he message and the install stops.

      Is there a way around this?

        I have never run HS / mcsTemperature on x64 so do not have any experience to know if there is a mechanism. I do know that once DallasSemiconductor went the route of the J/.NET rather than MSJVM for driver support the COM/ASP mechanism used by VB6/mcsSprinklers no longer worked. J/.NET is also obsolete as MS discontinued it as of .NET 2.0, but x64 was around when .NET 2.0 was active.

          If anyone is using mcsTemperature on Windows 7 x64 let me know.

          Michael, i guess my next choice is to go the mcsxap1wire route if no one has been successful?

            I got this to work correctly after playing around quite a bit. I think the problem lies in that 32 bit software by default installs into the "c:\Program Files (x86)\" folder. mcsTemperature doesn't seem to like that.

            I solved the problem by moving my entire HomeSeer installation to a folder called C:\HSPRO. Once all that is up and running, then install mcsTemperature. When the installer asks you where to put it, enter C:\HSPRO as the path. Make sure that it installs into the top level of that folder, not a subfolder as it seems to want to do. It will warn you that the directory already exists. That's normal.

            That seemed to get everything working for me. I have to assume that other plugins may have the same types of issues with the install location. My recommendation on any x64 system is to install into a folder other than Program Files (x86).
