  1. Shawn,
    thanks so much for this information. I have a MicroLogic sitting in my basement that I am not using and a friend with a young son who has opened a pumpkin stand so he can raise money to build a robot. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Lincolns-Pumpkin-Stand/1546863968877157

    I thought Lincoln might be able to use the MicroLogic to learn some automation, I just needed the software. Thanks for helping me make a young smart kid happy.

  3. HI shawn!

    can you help me solving this issue

    • Syed,

      Not sure exactly what you are asking… sounds like you downloaded the free RSLogix Micro Starter Lite software.

      This software is free for use with the MIcroLogix 1000 and 1100. Is the program you’re trying to edit for a 1000 or 1100?

      Sincerely,

      Shawn Tierney
