Dear all,

I tried to make the communication between bcvtb with trnsys18 demo that I had installed in my pc (with windows 10 64 bit) and it failed. The messages were:

*** Notice at time        :         0.000000

    Reported information  :  Type6666 could not be located in either the TRNdll64.dll or in an external dll. Please relink theTRNDll64.dll including this Type or make sure that an external DLL in the \UserLib\DebugDLLs and \UserLib\ReleaseDLLs folders contain the Type.

    Total Warnings        :         0

Also, I copied and pasted the bcvtb.dll and libexpat.dll files in TRNSYS18demo\Exe folder as it is adviced by other users but still the problem insists.

Are there any clues about what I can do to face the problem i.e. relindk the TRNDll64.dll?Is there a valid trnsys 17 version?Or maybe I could install a TRNSYS18 32bit version in my pc?

kind regards

The BCVTB-TRNSYS components are all compiled to work with the 32-bit version of TRNSYS. The 32-bit version of TRNSYS 18 is available when purchased but not as the demo version.
