Restrictions on VN8900 and CANape 17 64-Bbit (x64)
Due to the 64-bit architecture starting from CANape 17 x64, there are some restrictions with VN8900 devices.
- Measurement via Ethernet and executing DLLs on old VN8900 devices with 32-bit operation system is not supported anymore. Below is a list which VN8900 hardware can be used with CANape 17 x64:
Hardware Operating System Useable with CANape 17 x64 VN8911 32-bit No VN8911 32-/64-bit Yes VN8912 32-bit No VN8914 32-/64-bit Yes
- Measurement via Ethernet and executing DLLs on VN8900 is ensured by CANape RTKernel. Since CANape 17 x64, RTKernel is a 64-bit application and cannot be executed on 32-bit operation system. CANape 17 checks automatically which operating system is used on VN8900 and performs an update if possible. If not possible, the following error occurs.
