    hi,

    newbius here. i'm excited about mango. new to scada/hmi.
    it seems like something i can to learn to make a computer interface
    to control my kiln. i'm a home hobbyist with some computer knowledge.

    i installed java sdk 7 to c:\program files\java\jdk and c:\program files\java\jre
    as the installer had two parts. it came from oracle at
    http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/7u75-b13/jdk-7u75-windows-i586.exe?AuthParam=1424645324_69c58c0729181b3065b797c95fe61365

    when i start ma-start.bat the error is the location of the missing server file jvm.dll.
    mango is looking for it at c:\program files\java\jre\bin\server
    the install of java places it at c:\program files\java\jdk\jre\bin\server

    where within mango do i change this configuration?
    i checked ma-start.bat but found nothing definitive.

    is this involved?
    set EXECJAVA=java
    if "%JAVA_HOME%" == "" goto gotJava
    set EXECJAVA=%JAVA_HOME%\bin\java

    if i reinstall java entirely to c:\program files\java
    and restart i get this error

    Using Java at java
    Error: missing server' JVM atC:\Program Files\Java\bin\server\jvm.dll'.
    Please install or use the JRE or JDK that contains these missing

    now it's looking in a different location.

    i'm confused.
    adding an environment variable for java_home within windows 7 does not help.

    thank you,
    urg

    hi jeremyh,

    i believe that the inexpensive pid controllers on ebay, etc. do not
    have ramp/soak capability.

    the cheapest i could find on ebay was 75.00 and the quality i could not verify.

    omega has them for 85 and up. (good products)

    i chose solo, 90 and up, because of the software which you can get from this link.

    http://ftp.automationdirect.com/pub/slsoft.zip

    i think it's reasonable to assume this software will work other controllers.

    thank you for your interest.

    while poking around for the best products to use i found solo controllers

    which offer a free scada program which will work for now.

    being geekish i would prefer to build my own scada.

    i can take some time learning mango.

    thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

    raspberry pi does sound interesting as do similar products on the market.

    i purchased a rs485 to usb module and planned on using a dell inspiron mini i have.

    the raspberry pi sounds like an inexpensive way to have a wifi scada-hmi with mango

    and my controller. that's cool.

    anyways, regarding what capabilities i would like to have, and you're generous offer to

    assist me in getting there, here is an example of a basic firing schedule for fusing glass.

    would it be appropriate to move the discussion to another part of the forum?

    thanks eh...

    thank you for the reply.

    the issue i've been having seems an odd one so i tried an install
    on an xp virtual machine according to the video.

    it works fine.

    i only installed the jdk and to the default location.
    i cut and pasted the environment variables.

    i went and did the same thing on my win 7 machine again and had another error.

    don't care why and don't want to know.

    thank you very much for your assistance and concern.

    mango can do a variety of things.

    i wish to be able to control the kiln temperature with set points over periods of time

    heating and cooling and be able to hold temps.

    is there any advice you can give me on how to approach learning how to do this with mango?
