X10 Hardware Draws.
« on: November 15, 2015, 11:57:12 am »

Sadly I can no longer afford to keep the forum going with out additional support.
I've asked for donations for the forum and software I've created which have helped till now.
Now I have to get creative, if unsuccessful the forum will fold. (cB)

For everyone who donates $10 your name will be added to a draw for a North American X10 module.
Every additional $10 donation will give you an additional chance.
This years module will be a New (SR751) RF repeater.
Simply click on the link and filling in the Pay Pal donation form Forum Support
Besides being entered in for the current hardware draw donators will be granted full forum access regardless of post count.
However I can't grant you full access with out you registering for an account.
They also will be given the opportunity to suggest the next module offered.
Draw for module will be first of Jan 2016
Good luck

Time till 2015 draw
Note: this will also display life remaining before the site expires.

Currently there are only 12 users entered  (I'll update the number as/if it changes)
There were a total of 14 users that donated some of which requested not to be entered in the hardware giveaway.

Thank you for your help in getting my CM15a up and running again but do not enter me in the draw, give it to someone else.
Some background:  I am 80+ and have been using X10 since the late 1960's.  I was a Beta tester for the CM11a and an early adopter for the CM15a.  We have relied on Macros and Times to light stairs and bedrooms since we moved into this 2 level house some 30years ago. When the batteries died in the CM15a and the Netbook I used for AHPro was gone I turned to your Forum for help.  LifeJacket got me a running AHP on my new laptop (latest Windows 10 64bit) but all was not well. AHP assigned wrong units to my old lamp modules and my old Soft Start units did not work well, in addition no Timers worked!  I edited all lamp modules, put 5 sec delays around the old Soft Start and used "Run As Administrator" on AHP.  Too many changes at once to know what was really needed! So I now have a running system again and a satisfied (70++) wife!  Oh, I have also ordered some "modern" lamp modues.  Thank you.

I'm glad I was able to get you backup and running!
I found I needed to move AHP out off the Program Files(x86) folder to get by the newer security parameters of Win 10 64bit. Changing the permissions only moderately helped.
I also found some of my setting reverted after a few Windows restarts or updates.
However Windows updates have caused issues with my AHP setup in the past as far back as XP.
Time will tell if moving the folder will solve Windows Update issues (CZB)

The biggest issue users have is thinking because they are logged on as an admin lifejacket runs with admin privileges, It doesn't.
You need to right click on it and select run as admin.
The program needs heightened privileges for changing the ID and stopping services.
