6. How to setup the external COPP PC with display

It’s up to you, where you want it to be located on your pc. 

You can now start using your new COPP_PC in projects.

Using the external COPP_PC_with_display

Lets assume that you are already using a COPP_PC the one which is build into the editor itself. The external COPP_PC will work a little differently.

Start by adding a COPP_PC_with_display in your project,, and put in the enclosed serial number from the new COPP_PC_with_display.  

(It is renamed to "External_COPP_PC_with_display" in this example)

The special thing to notice is that when you want to make any communication with the External_COPP_PC_with_display. It could be download of any custom- or firmware for example, you will need to have the "module" open. It means that you need to run the V6_COPP_DEVICE.exe

When finished downloading software to your external COPP_PC, you should be ready to use it. 

How to "master reset" an external COPP_PC_with_display

When using the external COPP_PC you might upload a customware that is bad, and you might end up not being able to open the device before it crashes again. Therefore it’s convenient that we have a option to do a "master reset", which will remove any software that you have downloaded. There is two ways to do it.

Method 1:
Using this method, we will first be needing to create a shortcut to our COPP_PC_with_display.exe.

Then you’ll need bring up the properties tab, by right clicking the shortcut. 

Then put in "-master_reset", after the last ("), and click apply or ok.

Now, whenever clicking your shortcut for the COPP_PC_with_display, you will master reset your COPP_PC_with_display. 

Therefore, you might not keep the shortcut right besides your device, incase you click the wrong place and that causes a master reset. 

Method 2:

Using this method you will need to bring up a command window and give the COPP_PC execute file a command. This can be achived by shift-clicking the folder, where you COPP_PC is located, and click "open command window here". 

Now you should be able to execute your V6_COPP_DEVICE.exe, which is your COPP_PC_with_display, with the command (-master_reset). 

When executed, the COPP_PC_with_display will pop up in factory state.
