Installing the Adapter Manually

To integrate the adapter for Basler frame grabber support manually, take the following steps:

  1. Copy the file SiSoCognexAdapter.dll into the subdirectory \bin of your Basler runtime installation.
  2. Open the registry editor.
  3. In the registry editor, navigate to Cognex\AIK\AdapterSiso:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Cognex\AIK\AdapterSiso]

    If you cannot find these folders, create them as necessary: \Cognex\AIK\AdapterSiso

    It is important that the registry key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Cognex\AIK] has write access for the actual user, otherwise VisionPro will have to be started with admin rights in order to load the Silicon Software adapter dll.

  4. Add the following entries in folder AdapterSiso:

    PoolSize=dword:04000000

    PoolSizeQuantum=dword:000000002

    ServerNameBase=Cognex.AIKserver.AdapterSiSo

    UseExe=dword:00000001

    LibName=<SISOINSTALLDIR>\bin\SiSoCognexAdapter.dll

    (where <SISOINSTALLDIR> is your installation directory of the Basler runtime software, e.g.: C:/Programs/SiliconSoftware/Runtime5.x.x/bin/SiSoCognexAdapter.dll)
