PC Hangs when restarting VC in RS4

Is anyone experiencing problems when restarting Virtual controllers in RobotStudio 4. My PC locks up and even CTRL+ALT+DEL will not work.

I also get this error when starting a default controller

    Hi Sturner,

    I recommend that you reinstall RS (uninstall RS first). Make also sure that you don't have any AntiSpyware program running.

    unistalled and reinstalled twice... back to version 3.2 and now I get this error on starting the product

    The procedure Entry Point [email protected]@[email protected] not be located in dynamic link library spa.ASIC.dll

    What next


  • That could be caused by an incomplete uninstallation. Please make sure the installation directory (e.g. C:Program FilesABB RoboticsRobotStudio) is empty before you reinstall the product.
    If you revert to an earlier version you should also uninstall RobInstall before reinstalling RS.

    A colleague of mine is now suffering with the same PC lockup problem as me. This only happens when connected to the network. I note that we have both configured the 'IBM ThinkVantage Access connections'. is this to blame?
