Hi Patrick,
Make sure to update RoboDK to the latest version and take the latest version of the drivers (ABB RAPID files/MOD files).
In the header of the MOD file you'll see a small procedure mentioning the driver you should use:
  • If you use the Ethernet/Socket Messaging communication driver (RDK_DriverSocket.MOD which requires ABB's PC interface option) you'll need to use apirobot.
  • If you use the Serial communication driver (RS232 communication, it does not require any special options on the ABB controller) you should use the driver called apiabb.
