This application note provides information on how to set the IP address of a Windows PC.
After Windows XP, Microsoft significantly changed the way in which application software can communicate with Windows. This means that in Vista, Windows 7, 8 and 10 some of our software products must be run in a special mode. This mode is called Windows XP compatibility mode with administrator rights. See the application note.
Numerous Artistic Licence software products run in administrator mode. By default, Windows does not share mapped drives across user accounts. The following registry key will override this behaviour:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System EnableLinkedConnections =(dword)1
DMX-Workshop is our free-of-charge Windows application for monitoring and configuring Art-Net devices. The software requires Administrator permission to run. The installer for DMX-Workshop will attempt to auto-enable this for you, but it may fail depending on the configuration of your PC and your security settings.
To achieve manually, right-click the DMX-Workshop icon and select ‘run as administrator’. The right-click menu also accesses the properties dialogue which allows you to select DMX-Workshop to always run as administrator.
