    what version of HS3 are you running?

    do you have an EnvisaLink.ini in your Config folder?, if so please delete it and restart the plugin. Does the plugin is initialized correctly in this case?

    Then fill in your settings in the config page and make sure there is no firewall or anti virus blocking the connection to your EnvisaLink interface on port 4025.

    As for the licence registration problem could you contact HST support or open a helpdesk ticket.

      Spud if you are responding to my post, I've removed it. It was my fault, I had an IP address issue and the plug-in "goes out to lunch" in that condition. It could use some better error handling as the link to change the config was flat out gone. So I had to uninstall the plug-in, manually delete the files, re-install, then update the info. It's working now.

      Only issue I'm having now is the license key I bought doesn't work with the HS3 plug-in.

        You're right about error handling, I'm improving it right now.

        I think your licence key should work with both HS2 and HS3 since I don't charge any upgrade fee. Could you open a helpdesk ticket, or if one of the HST guy read this, could you advise?

          Can HS2 and HS3 EnvisaLink plug-in run side by side

          I'm happy to give it a spin but do you think I'll run into any issues running V3 on my HS3 test system while HS2 is running my main system.

          Based on what (I think I know) - seems like it might work but very interested in any info from someone that has already tried or what you think Spud.

          If an alarm goes off (when it is not supposed to) I'll be in the HS dog house for a very, very long time....

            The EnvisaLink doc says:
            The Envisalink acts as a server for the TCP connection and the user application is the client. The Envisalink listens on
            port 4025 and will only accept one client connection on that port. Any subsequent connections will be denied.
            so running both HS2 and HS3 with the EnvisaLink plugin won't work, only one of them woulfd be able to connect to the interface.

              OK, thanks...

              The Envisalink web site is still connecting with (and exchanging info with) my HS2 PC (in addition to the Envisalink plug-in) so assuming that connection is on a different or dedicated port (vice 4025)...

                Installation:
                - Download and unzip the file attached to this post.
                - Copy HSPI_ENVISALINK.exe to your HS3 directory
                - Copy the gif files to html\images\EnvisaLink (Create this directory if it doesn't exist)

                This HS3 version has exactly the same features than the HS2 version.

                Please report any bug. Thanks!
                Did this plugin get a new license from HomeSeer? If not you need to ensure that this plugin is HS3 compatible and includes the correct HS3 license as well as getting the plugin in the HomeSeer updater. You can't simply drop a HS2 plugin into HS3.

                  This plugin is HS3 compatible and is already in the HS3 updater
                  There is also a store page for this HS3 version:
                  http://store.homeseer.com/store/Envi...P1630C268.aspx

                  What is a HS3 licence? I thought there was no need anymore to include a .lf file for HS3 plugins?

                  I don't want to charge any upgrade fee for this plugin for users who bought it for HS2. What should I do to achieve that?

                    Let me double check on this.

                      Spud,
                      Just and update. I did start a case which I think triggered the Homeseer team response. Here's the detail I provided. Greg from HS thought it "should work" as you asked, but it's not so he's looking at it.

                      Subject: Envisalink License not working with HS3
                      Thanks for the response. I go to Register Online from Plugin Management. Currently it shows Trial with 30 days left next to the button. I enter license number and password that I was given after purchase. I get the following error:

                      Registration failed: [License number shows here...removed from post] : Error registering license: License does not match product

                        thanks for the update

                        just to confirm, your licence code for this plugin worked in HS2, right?

                            Spud,
                            I think you need to contact the guys at HomeSeer as there's some confusion as to weather you are charging for your HS3 plugin or not.

                              Spud,
                              If you could let me know the resolution here, I'd appreciate it. I'm not going to move forward with HS3 until it's released, so I'm not in any particular time crunch. I'm at the end of the road with my Homeseer ticket. They pretty much said I'd have to buy it again to use it with HS3, pending your discussions with them.

                              Thanks for the great support.
