Issues with RunRoutine button

Hi robot guys,

Trying out ScreenMaker for the first time. I'm having an issue with the RunRoutine button. Whenever I press the button in the virtual FP, it says "RAPID Execution must be stopped." Now, if I press the stop button first, and then hit the buttons, the robot executes the routines. However, I would like the operators to call the routines without stopping the program first. How do I do this? Thanks!

    Is it possible that your virtual controller is set to Continuous run mode so it's already running when it starts up? -- [RAPID] tab > [Run Mode] > [Single Cycle]
  • Hi soup,

    I tried it using both continuous and single cycle modes and I still get the same error message every time.

    When your pendant first starts up does it say "Stopped" or something else?
  • It runs ABB's ExecEngine from Main. I asked around some more and apparently, if I want to use the RunRoutine button I would have to bypass ExecEngine and use a custom main routine code.
