Trouble Running RSLogix and Linx


Thread Starter


I have installed RSLogix500 and RSLinx on my laptop. When I try to run them I get problems with the library files, rswl032.dll and RSWD32.DLL, respectively. Any tips on how to get all this working?

What versions and what is your OS and service pack? The Rockwell knowledge base has a lot of these type of issues listed, one might be yours.

Windows XP Home, SP2, on a Dell Inspiron 8600. I haven't had much luck with the RS website. I was hoping someone else here had experienced the same problem.

SP2 could be your problem if you are running 2.42 or less with RSLinx. Rockwell have been slow at getting their software to run on SP2, so I still run SP1 on my notebook.
