NB: When running the Mlm Tool with update 12 for the first time a popup titled "Mlm Data Description Update" is shown asking if you would like to update the file in your application. Selecting 'Update' here will require you to also update the description file on every MCU before connecting. Only select 'Update' if you require any of the additions (mentioned in the dialog) that was made:

  • Dedicated diffuser flow functionality was added.
  • Wireless access point functionality was added.
  • PCD functionality was added.
  • Flow functionality was added.

The listed “Flow functionality was added” in the dialog was already available in update 6. So there is no need to update if you are already using flow.

Problem:

After installing update 12 and running it for the first time the Mlm Tool prompts the user if he would like to update to the latest Mlm Data Description file. When selecting 'Keep' the Mlm Tool does not display/draw Diffusers in Section View when connecting to a MCU.

Fix:

1) Update to the latest Mlm Data Description file by updating the MCU's Mlm Data Description file. Select "File/Upgrade MCU Firmware" from the main menu. When selecting this option the Mlm Tool will ask if you would like to make use of the latest version. Select 'Yes'.

Or

2) Install the previous version of the Mlm Tool (update 6).

Mlm Tool update 13 will be released soon containing this fix as well as some new features.
