to preface this, I'm a mechatronics technician, I have no training in programming languages aside from Siemens TIA Portal and Simatic Manager, mainly with FBD but also LD and some IL.
Now, we're planning on rolling out a new system that a programming company is setting up. We've decided to go with the newer IEC 61499, yay I get to learn new things.
As it will all be mostly set up by the programmers, I don't have to learn much, except the basics. But I'm struggling to even install 4Diac.
First I had to fight with Java, which simply will not run on most company PCs, having found an offline version to install, I could start 4Diac.
Following the step by step tutorial I got as far as making a simple blinking program, which I then want to test by using Forte. While it said that 4Diac-IDE comes with built in Forte, I have no idea how to use it, as there is no Forte.exe I could point the preferences to.
Please keep in mind I'm in automation, I have to program around 2-3 times a year.
Any help would be appreciated.
