    I have a computer with Windows 7   64-bit,    JMRI 2.12,   PR3,  DCS050 controller.
    I connected the USB cable from the computer to the PR#. I connected the telephone cable from the PR3 to the controller.
    i programmed a Bachmann Spectrum 4-4-0 locomotive to ID 1882.
    I opened the throttle and the controls are grayed out.
    What am I doing wrong? What did I miss?
    On the PR3, the ERR light is out, the green USB light winks, and the STAT light blinks red.
    Can anyone help?
    Thanks

    Keith Bradley

    Same problem no matter what I do. I've deleted and downloaded at least 10 times in a week, and cannot operate the throttle even in simulator mode, it stays greyed out.

    Downloading more than once doesn't generally change things.

    You're best bet will be to ask on the JMRIusers group discussion:
    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/jmriusers/

    The JMRI group on yahoo, "fixed" it, anyone else having this problem just download this fix:

    The release notes for JMRI v2.99.2 (<
    http://jmri.sourceforge.net/releasenotes/jmri2.99.2.shtml>) indicate that
    there is a fix in that version for a bug in this area which you might have
    run into.
