My company acquired a press brake for bending large structural steel plates. We received it second hand and it came with an embedded copy of windows XP. Now for the part that's driving me nuts: plug and play has been turned off, also accessibility options has been disabled. What does this mean for me? Keyboards will not work! Nothing that plugs into a USB port will work and it does not have a CD ROM drive. I have tried to turn on plug and play using the on screen keyboard but it is not there since accessibility options is turned off. I would just get an updated copy of the the embedded OS but they come from Sweden and are extremely expensive. I assume there has got to be a way to get a USB devices to work. We need to get a wifi adapter on it so I can use team viewer and remotely configure it for our needs.
Things to keep in mind:
There is no keyboard so everything has to be done with the mouse
There is no PS2 port for a keyboard just a mouse. Odd.
- I am 5 states away from this location and have been working with a tech who is physically installing the machine.
- System 32 seems to be missing A LOT of files, the tech told me there is only 8 folders in there and no other files (I don't even understand how Windows is running like this).
If anyone has ANY ideas I would appreciate it, I am unsure where to go from here.
