Hi Tuicemen,

Well I'm back with another question regarding AHP-Lifejacket.  When you refer to "Volume ID" are you referring to the 8 alpha-numeric part number printed on the physical drive, or the 8 alpha-numeric "Volume Serial Number" for the C: partition?

Tuicemen,

Thanks for the explanation of the "Program Files (x86)" AHP issues.  Probably has something to do with the virtual folders Windows 10 creates.

I will investigate your suggestions regarding HomeGenie HA.  However I've added my own software to AHP that makes it more advanced than the stock capabilities; integrating home security and creating a truly "Smart House".

I've got an old Window 7 PC, going to use it to prototype the AHP install before the Windows 10 installation.
 
Thanks again for your help,
Mickey

So I've been using Alexa with X10 for some time now utilizing the HA-Bridge program.
I moved to the HG Echo Bridge addon for HomeGenie and like magic all my Alexa sorry can find device responses are gone. I had just assumed Amazon improved things until I made a trip to my off grid place that still utilizes the HA-Bridge. (CZB)
 I setup a whole section on the X10 forums dedicated to the Pi X10 Hub and the software included. http://forums.x10.com/index.php?board=165.0

Windows 10 added extra security for programs in the Programs Files (x86) folder these interfere with several functions of AHP.

By the way since your looking at a special PC for HA you may wish to look at the PiX10Hub  and a simple Pi Zero W board first. The HomeGenie HA program is far more advanced the AHP.
I promise you it will be the best investment you make in your X10 HA setup.
Sure there is a learning curve but that can be said for any upgrade. With the PiX10HuB HomeGenie is preconfigured for X10 and no special skills required unless you wish far more advanced macros then what AHP Smart macros allows

Tuicemen,
Once again, thanks very much for the information.
Going out to purchase a new PC that should be well suited for this application.

BTW: I know AHP is a 32 bit App, and 32 bit apps are normally installed in "Program Files (x86)", but you even mentioned installing outside of "Program Files (x86)".
Out of curiosity, what is the reason for installing outside of the folder reserved for 32 bit applications?

Hi Tuicemen,

Once again thanks for the link.
Are there any special instructions on the AHPro installation?  I assume I would run the AHPro installation first, then the AHP_Lifejacket_Setup. Is AHP_Lifejactket_Setup an auto-run, or is there a menu of self-explanatory menus?

As I mentioned, I've previously only installed the "Smart Macro" plugin.  The implication from your previous post is that AHP_Lifejacket allows me to select the plugins I wish to activate.

I haven't been able to get it to dim to a level, so won't be able to use it. Thanks for the effort and help!
That is the reason I wanted more testers. Dimming should totally be possible however if no other tester is dimming they can't share what works for them.
If the same thing doesn't work for you then the issue is most likely a bad install.

Thanks for your time testing the image.  (Chr)
