USB PC Watchdog / Re: BPI_WDpg_Tickle program failed on wdOpen or wdOpenEx

There is not a driver on the CD. The USB Watchdog device uses the built in Windows HID driver. Other devices also use the HID driver such as a keyboard, mouse, game controller, etc. Can you try removing these devices one by one and see if any of them are interfering,

Hi, I have the same problem, although I have just gotten my 1140.

Windows 7 x64 does not recognize the device - it marks it as Unknown Device in Device Manager. I cannot locate the driver on the CD.zip

Can you help?
Thanks

Very sorry for the late reply. Your post was overlooked.

Can you check Device Manager and see if an HID device is being installed each time you plug in the watchdog.
Under properties it should Device & VID of: 0C98 1140.
Do you get the successful acknowledgement beep when you plug in the card?

USB PC Watchdog / BPI_WDpg_Tickle program failed on wdOpen or wdOpenEx
« Last post by pr3da70r on December 06, 2013, 20:38:02 »
Hi,

I have the USB watchdog and it had been working well until recently. One day I started receiving a "Fatal Open Error" that states BPI_WDpg_Tickle program failed on wdOpen or wdOpenEx.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled software and am at a loss. I haven't made any changes on my side.

I'm running Windows 8, if that matters.

Please help.

BPI Watchdog Software / Re: Confusion about tickling the watchdog

Consider it an added bonus - tickle the board and get the temp in return.

Historically our first ISA based board had very limited I/O capability so we returned the temp from it for a tickle to save I/O ports.

BPI Watchdog Software / Confusion about tickling the watchdog
« Last post by fanboi on October 12, 2013, 14:03:30 »
From looking at the Universal DLL PC Watchdog Programmer's Guide, it appears that the WD_GetTempTickle function is what I need to call to reset the timer.  Is this true?  I am a bit confused because it also reads the temperature.  I am not concerned about the temperature.

Is this just a case of a function doing two different things?  Or, is there another (non temperature-related) function I need to use?

I found the problem! Used the contact spray on the dip switches and toggled them several times.
Now the watchdog seems to work as expected.
So I think it was some dust or oxide build up preventing SW5 from turning off. Thanks  :)
