Fabwerks - Licensing scheme is broken

Saturday, July 1st 2017, 9:08pm

I have an Aquaero 6 XT and an Aquaero 6 LT, along with a realtime clock and other accessories.

I am adding a Fabwerk USB to the system.

I read in the manual that I need to hook up the device via USB first in order to have it operate as an AquaBus device connected to my Aquaero's.


So I connect it to my laptop and open up Aquasuite.

I have the Aquaero 6's running on Aquasuite 2017-1.3, as they are licensed to run.

However, since I have Aquasuite 2017-1.3, the Aquasuite refuses to talk to the Fabwerk because it's not licensed for Aquasuite 2017! So I have to uninstall Aquasuite 2017, reinstall Aquasuite 2016, update the fabwerk, then reinstall Aquasuite 2017 and reinstate the settings.


Aquasuite 2017 at the very lease should be allowed to talk to the fabwerk to do the single operation of allowing it to be a slave aquabus device so that it can be plugged into the system. This is a hole in the logic of the licensing.
