Xpress application with no Exit button makes it impossible to make hardware setting changes.
Sometimes the button is hidden in the application which requires a certain user level before the button appears and is usable. If you don't have any log in buttons and are not able to contact the machine builder then you will need a copy of the Off Line development software.
The development software can be purchased through your Parker distributor, If the version is newer than what is used on the XPR/XPR2 that is OK since older apps can be loaded WITHOUT updating to the current version and changes can be made and saved in the applications original version.
To get access to the Xpress Shell with the least impact and highest degree of safety, you will need the following.
Xpress Off-Line development
PC with Windows XP/Win7/Win10
USB Compact Flash Card Reader that works with your PC and can see the Compact Flash (CF) card from the XPR/XPR2 when inserted
If you open Xpress after the Card is inserted and showing up as a Removable media drive letter, it will show up in the "Remote Machines" Window. If you have Xpress open when the card is inserted, let the PC find it and assign the drive letter then Hit the "Refresh" button or Right Click in the white space of the "Remote Machines" window and do a refresh. The drive letter will show up and you can just click on it to get it highlighted and then the arrow that points to the "Local Projects" window and it will upload the application from the CF card to your PC.
Open the application by double clicking on it in the "Local Projects" screen so it opens the one on your PC.
On the first screen under "User Admin" you will make a change in "Security Options" to change the "Local Startup User" to Admin. Applications with Admin as the local startup user will ALWAYS stop at the Xpress Shell when booting which is where you need to be to make hardware level settings changes.
Make sure to take note of the user it is currently set to since we need that so we can change it back after the changes are made. Changing it back will be done right on the unit and will not require going through the development software again.
Click OK after changing the Local Startup User.
Get back to the main Xpress Shell screen.
Now with the changed application highlighted on the left in "Local Projects" and the Drive letter highlighted the "Remote Machines" hit the arrow goes from Local to Remote.
Put the card back in the XPR/XPR2 and when it boots it will stop at the Shell.
After making the changes you needed, Go into the Security right on the hardware and set it back to the original user and after saving change, reboot and it will automatically go into run again.
