maybe the FPX function phase driver for 800xA Batch with Freelance FPX is missing? You can get it from the BU OG and Chemicals in Germany. They have a price list for Products, Tools and Services.

You may want to contact Axel Haller in Germany for more details.

Hi Dieter thanks for your response, Are you saying that we may require new FPX drivers for 800xA V6.03 ?

Hi LJohnson1, I don't know if you need a new one. That's why I pointed you to Axel Haller. Maybe you just need to re-install the old one?
Please note that I'm only guessing the driver is missing.
