The situation is as follows:
I have a cell with four Motoman SK16X Robots, I have different jobs for different part models and we need to change some other parameters depending on the model, for example the speed depends on the material thickness, so we need to change the value of some robot vars in all the four robots everytime we need to change the model.

I would like to have a PC program where you could select the model so the program get the parameters from a database and put the vars value available for the robots. The robots could get the vars using SAVEV and LOADV instruction.

I can do all the programing but I'm having problems with the communication with the robots.
In this moment I have some code in C language to perform the comunication but when I execute a SAVEV instruction I get the correct value in the PC and all the messages of the protocol seems to be ok but I get the following alarm on the teach pendant: ALARM 4105 WRONG EXECUTION OF SAVE INST [237]

I would really appreciate any help.
