New protocol not saving


Recommended Posts


I have created a new protocol to help in reading in values from an instrument. The protocol works and I have made sure in the filename I have put the DAQ factory installation directory and that it ends in .dpp. However, after saving if I close DAQ factory the protocol disappears and it doesn't save anywhere.

I'm sure its something simple I am missing but I have no idea what I am doing wrong, any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

The DAQFactory installation folder is read-only by default unless you run DAQFactory with administrative rights (which is not the same as being logged in as an admin).  I am guessing that DAQFactory is unable to save the ddp to its installation folder.  I would go into Windows Explorer and change the security settings on the DAQFactory installation folder to allow "Everyone" the ability to write.  Keep it this why while you are developing the ddp, then when done revert it back, leaving the ddp file in the installation folder.
