  • Finding the Fixture Library Version in an Eos Family Console 

    When fixture library updates from the factory are applied (i.e., a fixture library update that is supplemental to a normal Eos famiily software release), the version number can be retrieved from the Diagnostics window.  This is useful for troubleshooting purposes, as well as an indicator of whether a library update has been applied to a particular console or not. 

    To read the fixture library version from the Diagnostics screen:

    The Diagnostics screen can be accessed by pressing  [Browser] or [Displays] then {Utilities} -> {Diagnostics}. In version 2.2.0 or later, Diagnostics can be accessed by pressing and holding [Tab], typing [9][9], then releasing [Tab].

    Very quickly after the first message when the console starts, the fixture library will load in.  If the console has been running for a while, the messages may not be there. It is best to exit the console and look at the diagnostics window right after booting back in.

    There are two versions mentioned in the Diagnostics window, and they represent two different things.  The data below is highlighted for clarity only.

    • The text in blue IS the actual version number of the fixture library installed. 
    • The text in yellow IS NOT the version currently installed, but it is the version that was originally installed with the last software update. This is always the "Fixture Library x.x.x.x.x.x (Code)" line.
