    Thank you, Herman, as I wrote in the above posts, I have a Kuka robot krc2 ed 2004 that used to work with Windows 95. I upgraded it to Windows XP and replaced my previous programs in each of the system, program, and TP folders. And all the problems were solved and the robot was working until today when I wanted to open a new module or a new program, after opening a red cross mark fell on this new program and I practically cannot run the new program.is this infos enough?

    Hi Dear Friends

    After I changed the operating system of the robot from Windows 95 to Windows XP, everything was fine until today. Today, I wanted to open a new module. I encountered the following error message.


    "Name invalid for this type of constant

    BAS (#PTP_PARAMS,100)

    Can you advise what the problem could be and fix it?

    You still didn't answer any of the critical questions.


    1. You cannot simply copy the contents of the TP directory from one robot to another. TPs must be installed using the actual KUKA installation program. These programs normally come on the CDs from KUKA, but when installed a copy of the installer is normally placed under the D:\KUKA_OPT directory inside the robot.

    2. If you did not make a complete hard drive image before doing the Windows upgrade, then your only way to get the TPs back is to get the install CDs from KUKA. Because doing the Windows upgrade probably deleted the original D: partition.

    3. You mention "red Xs", but you have said anything about the error messages. Each line of a program that fails compilation and linking will produce a detailed error message specifying which line failed, and why. You're going to need to try to load one file at a time, and examine the resulting errors in detail, to determine what still works and what is broken.

    Thanks SkyeFire,all things done and working properly,first i edited the $Config.dat file in winxp side with declaration Tech packs then unfold $Config.dat in win95 side then select all contenets and copy them afte that paste it to the win xp $Config.dat then i replace bas.src from win 95 to win xp all x crossed files have been corrected now every things working well but i have a small error that says DSE writing I/O Errors but It does not cause a problem Thank you and thanks alot Panic mode

    First of all, thank you for taking the time to answer my question... After installing Windows XP and KSS 5.2.12, my robot is fully operational and working. There are only two P00 files in the folder. I transferred A10, 20, 50, and H50 files from the previous Windows archive (Windows 95) from the TP folder (file package technology) and a series of other files to TP, and when in my program (for example, the car body), the relevant lines I comment on the mentioned files, the work done in Windows 95 works perfectly on the robot, but when I remove this technology package from the comment, I get about 20-30 errors.

    Hi Skyefire, look, I have my Windows 95 backup, now I want to transfer my programs to Windows XP, but after transferring the technology package to the folder TP, as well as my programs, a red X mark appears on all of them. How can I solve the problem? Did you solve it?

    ...how, exactly? On KRCs, the Windows version and KSS version are tied together intimately. If you used a regular Microsoft desktop-type Windows installation, you've probably bricked the KRC entirely.


    The only safe way to do an OS upgrade on a KRC is to determine the highest compatible OS from KUKA -- this includes both Windows and VxWorks/KSS -- and get the applicable installation media set from KUKA. Then install Windows, followed by KSS, in the correct sequence.


    As for Tech Packages... P00 is not a TP, it comes with every KRC by default. TP compatibility is a complex question. Some old TPs work well in newer KSS versions, others definitely do not. Aside from asking KUKA for a compatibility list, the simplest approach is to try installing each TP from the D:/KUKA_OPT copy and see which ones work and which ones don't.

    I installed Windows XP, then I installed Kuka Cross version 5.1 and now I want to transfer my existing programs from Windows 95 to the new Windows xp, and for this purpose I want to use the archive, but I get an error, I don't know if the transfer steps are possible And if it is possible, how should I do this? By the way, the robot works perfectly after installing Windows XP, but I want my previous programs to be transferred to the new system and work there as well.

    I'm so sorry, I didn't mean to be bold, I searched a lot on the site and couldn't find the desired post... I have different questions, one is whether the technology packages from an old system like Windows 95 can be transferred and used to Windows XP or not... the second. Which files should be transferred from the archive to the new os and software? :smiling_face_with_halo: :smiling_face:

    Hi panicmode ,first of all thanks alot,i have a robot kr 15-2 krc2 , kss4.1,windows 95, that it has 5 technology packages(P00,A10,A20,A50,..) now i have upgraded from win 95 to win xp,when i want to restore my programs from backup diskette in new os ,an error occured,for example it says wrong krc v4.1 to krc 5.1 ?is there any solution?
