20m2 part

#1
Hello
I am trying to add the 20M2 ic to my circuit, but can only see 20M in the parts catalogue. Is this the right part or is it an older model? I have just bought and installed VSM today so I assume it is up to date. I have copied the model patch 4.04 into the library, but it was only replacing existing parts.

Sorry, new to PICAXE and VSM and electronics for that matter!

Thanks

Robin

Did you follow this correctly?

***************************************
Upgrade Patch to PICAXE VSM Model 4.0.4
***************************************

The PICAXE VSM model number is shown in the
simulation log after running a PICAXE simulation.

These files update the PICAXE models to version 4.0.4

This patch contains MODELS and LIBRARY files that can be
used on every version of ISIS from 7.6 to 7.10
However *ONLY INSTALL* the two sets of files listed below.

If you add the extra files designed for a later ISIS
version they will not function and you may corrupt
your PICAXE VSM installation.

*** MODEL FILES ***
Files should be copied into the installation MODELS folder,
which is normally:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Revolution Education\PICAXE VSM\MODELS
or, on older 32 bit versions of Windows,
C:\Program Files\Revolution Education\PICAXE VSM\MODELS

The files to copy across are:

PICAXE VSM V4 (ISIS VERSION 7.10) (Current Release)
- AXEVSM.DLL
- AXEVSM1.DLL
- AXEVSM2.DLL
- AXEVSMM2.DLL
- PICAXE_IC.LML
- PICAXE_PARTS.LML

PICAXE VSM V3 (ISIS VERSION 7.8) (Old Release)
- AXEVSM.DLL
- AXEVSM1.DLL
- AXEVSM2.DLL
- AXEVSMM2.DLL

PICAXE VSM V2 (ISIS VERSION 7.6) (Old Release)
- AXEVSM.DLL
- AXEVSM1.DLL
- AXEVSM2.DLL



*** LIBRARY FILES ***
Files should be copied into the installation LIBRARY folder,
which is normally:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Revolution Education\PICAXE VSM\LIBRARY
or, on older 32 bit versions of Windows,
C:\Program Files\Revolution Education\PICAXE VSM\LIBRARY

The files to copy across are:

PICAXE VSM V4 (ISIS VERSION 7.10) (Current Release)
- PICAXE_PARTS.LIB
- PICAXE_IC.LIB
- PWRRAILS.INI

PICAXE VSM V3 (ISIS VERSION 7.8) (Old Release)
- No files required.

PICAXE VSM V2 (ISIS VERSION 7.6) (Old Release)
- No files required.

I can only think you have put the files in the wrong places.

As you have only just bought VSM, I'll assume you have V 7.10

1. Download the Model Patch 4.04 vsm_models_404 zip file

2. Extract all files to a temporary folder

3. MODEL FILES
AXEVSM.DLL
AXEVSM1.DLL
AXEVSM2.DLL
AXEVSMM2.DLL
PICAXE_IC.LML
PICAXE_PARTS.LML

Location:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Revolution Education\PICAXE VSM\MODELS
or, on older 32 bit versions of Windows,​
C:\Program Files\Revolution Education\PICAXE VSM\MODELS

4. LIBRARY FILES
PICAXE_PARTS.LIB
PICAXE_IC.LIB
PWRRAILS.INI

Location:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Revolution Education\PICAXE VSM\LIBRARY
or, on older 32 bit versions of Windows,​
C:\Program Files\Revolution Education\PICAXE VSM\LIBRARY​

Overwrite existing files.

Hope this helps as it worked fine for me.

Hello Angie.
I have repeated all of this to the letter. Downloaded the patch (m2, x2), unzipped into a temp folder, and copied the relevant files into their respective folders (models &library). Then run ISIS and hit the P tab and look within the picaxe section. 20m part but no m2 parts. :(
