I don't have a RoboGuide license available at the moment, so I'm trying to use the MakeTP (installed by RoboGuide V9) tool to compile LS files into TPs that I can load. And I'm running into an odd problem. Basically, if I ASCII export a TP file from the robot, and try to run MakeTP on it without any edits, MakeTp throws errors. After doing some tinkering, I've found that MakeTP seems to be choking on any and all of the Macro calls in the LS file.
I'm guessing that this might be because I don't have a robot.cfg file for this robot? As I understand it, I need to run maketp /config <file> on the config file before running MakeTP on the actual LS file. And I have to create the config file using SetRobot. Is that correct?
However, I haven't been able to run SetRobot correctly. If I just run SetRobot from the command line, it pops open a "Select from the Robot Neighborhood" dialog box that wants me to select a robot from my RoboGuide cells, but it won't let me navigate outside of the RoboGuide tree. And since I don't have a virtual cell for this robot, this presents a problem.
I've tried running SetRobot D:\BackupDir\ where D:\backupdir\ contains a full IMG backup of the robot, but it just opens the same dialog box. Trying to run SetRobot with -? or /? switches does the same thing -- SetRobot doesn't seem to accept any arguments, and nothing I've tried gives me the typical "help" that most DOS command (including MakeTP) throw for the '/?' switch.
