When I start the program to test a new element I have made I get this error

Socket Error #10013
access denied

the program then starts from a fresh with any previous information entered erased,

when I test the elements it works, but I ma getting some odd colours on some of the pixels?

Can some suggest a fix?

That error occurs sometimes with a pc with wireless as well as wired ethernet/internet connections.
As far as the odd colours that is most likely to be low power supply voltage at the pixels.

Thanks AAH I do have wired and wireless, oddly this year, my laptop wont connect to the P12R? but as I do most stuff from the main computer I have not bothered about it.

The other issue was caused by a loose ground wire.

Thanks for the help :)

The laptop might might not be in the 10.10.10.xx IP range or whatever the P12 is configured for.

I honestly have no idea? The lap top used to be able to access it, but no longer?

I use 10.0.0.xx for everything, looking at "fing" the lap top is 10.0.0.11 and the P12R 10.0.0.81
