  1. Facility Commander Wnx 7.0 User Manual 2017

This is a total long shot....... but reminds me of an issue we had with some card printing software ....... but since it will only take 3 minutes to try, I'll suggest it anyway.

On the PC having the problem, open up your printers, set one (any one) as the default, then open your software and try again...... if that fails, close the software, go back to printers, and then set the NEXT one as the default, and try your software again. Rinse and repeat until you have tried every printer as the default.

I know it sounds odd, but when we had an issue regarding our card printer, I had changed the default printer to the card printer (it is a dedicated PC for card printing only).... and when I did everything stopped working. I thought it made sense, as I had only set the actual card printer as the default, but in fact the software insisted on it being another printer (perhaps one configured elsewhere within the software)...... when I made the printer it THOUGHT should be the default, everything worked fine again.

I doubt it will work, but for that amount of time, it certainly can't hurt to try.

I have a HID reader connected to a WIC-4 which is connected to a 8RP port. The reader grants access and the door unlocks, can also use manule controls to lock and unlock the door. Status shows reader is online and door staus. All functions are working exept i can not get the door to work on a door schedule. When i give the door a schedule set to unlock 8-5 the door will unlock and remain unlocked but at 5 the door will not relock. The next day at 8 the door will not unlock. i was told that the problem with the door is that one of the data wires was not make a connection at the 8RP port and there for the door would not work with a schedule. It seems to me that if on of the data wires is not connected then the reader should not work. Has anyone seen this to be true?
