Upgrade to ARC Pro

Unleash your creativity with the power of easy robot programming using Synthiam ARC Pro


It did not update its still reading as the last one all files are the same I even did a complete delete of the old one before installing this one but its still just the old nothing different other than the installer :S

its even telling me there is a new one out but this is the one I have in stalled



The splash page for ARC Setup now asks for the user to choose: Modify Repair Remove

What is the proper choose for 'Update'?

Thanks for all the great work!


I too un-installed then installed the new one and i'm still at 11-26 as well.


The wrong install package was set for download, that's all... I am sure DJ will fix it soon enough.... :)


Fixed:) Thank you for letting me know!


Since updating to this version, the EZ-B camera is running about 6-10 seconds behind. (ie, I move the camera or Roli, and camera window shows the movement 6-10 seconds later). I do not currently have any tracking on, so this as non-processed as it can be.



What is the "Tracking Speed" set for? Is the slider to the RIGHT or to the LEFT?


To the left, fluctuating between 8-10 fps. To rule out network or low battery, I tried on another machine that had not updated yet, no issues.

I uninstalled and re-installed previous version on this machine, no issues.

Updated again, issue returned.

Moving the tracking speed slider further left or to the right appears to have no effect on the issue.



To clarify, the tracking speed all the way to the left has the same effect as having it all the way to the right?



To clarify, the tracking speed all the way to the left has the same effect as having it all the way to the right?

Yes. No apparent effect. (moving to the right may make it worse, but certainly doesn't make it any better).



I just tested a simple project with camera.... Same problem Alan is having .... about a 6 second camera delay... All settings are default, just added a camera to a new project....


If it makes a difference, I am running Windows 7 Ultimate. Haven't tried on my Win 8.1 machine yet.



I have Win 8.1 so don't think it matters in this case


Strange - I'm on it but unable to reproduce. Will have a fix soon :)


Let me know if you need any further debug info - other thought since you can't reproduce is could it be processor related? My machine is an AMD, not an Intel.



I feel it is processor related - any issues I have experienced in the past with video has been related to AMD... wish I knew why.

Can you uninstall the current version and install this:

It has the same "Version" number so you will need to uninstall the current ARC to try it.


okay i'll update the latest build this evening


Thank you DJ Mr.Robot God :)
