EDS file creator and RXLogix 5000 v20.01

I am using the CompactCom B40 EthernetIP starter kit. I am running one of the examples and used the EDS file creator to create an EDS file. When we try to load the EDS file into RXlogix 5000 it hangs the program. Any thoughts why?

Does it ever show an error message or does it just get stuck when trying to import the EDS and never respond after?

Just hangs. We searched the Rockwell knowledge base and found that Anybus generated EDS files are not compatible with their software/system. We had to create a generic device. Are you aware that they are not compatible? Are there plans to make them?

I haven’t heard of this issue before but I’ll look into it and see if I can figure out what might be causing the problem

Hi @ramthun,

Sorry for the delay on this, we’re going back through and closing out older tickets. Just wanted to see if this was ever resolved?
