I am currently running AKTA Purifier UPC10 with Unicorn version 5.1.1 (build 407) on a Windows XP box. The computer is ancient and prone to freezing up. I don't know how many times it froze at the worse time during an injection. We have been able to install Unicorn 5.1.1 on a Windows 7 box with no problems but when we start up the AKTA, we get an error message, "Unable to connect (no connection between open connection interface and local driver"
I have checked that the right strategy, computer name and control unit are correct. I have installed the CU9x0 950/960 USB driver and the network components Client for Microsoft Networks, QoS Packet Scheduler, File Printer sharing, TCP/IP protocol version 4, Link layer topology discovery mapper/responder and network card are already on the computer. We are really at a loss what to try next. I really can't believe GE Healthcare software has to run on an operating system that is over 10 years old.
I found the administration manual for Unicorn 5.3.1 which had information on configuring a Windows 7 computer for AKTA, but this version is no longer found on the GE webpage. Unicorn 6 runs on XP and vista business which is a joke. Surely someone out there has got Unicorn running on Windows 7 or on a Mac. Am I missing something? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
