I have two Variax models, a 300 and a 700. Both have previously connected with no issues to the Variax Workbench via the Variax cable to my POD XT Live, and into the USB interface to my computer. Tonight, however, when I try to conned the 700 to the Workbench, I get this error message:

 

MIDI%20Timeout%20Error.jpg

 

I have tried power cycling the XT Live, rebooting the computer, and restarting the Workbench software, all to no avail. I still get the error message. But the Variax IS visible to the Line 6 Monkey software:

 

Line%206%20Monkee%20Sees%20Variax%20700%

 

All my drivers are up to date on the Variax:

 

Variax%20700%20Drivers%20Up%20To%20Date%

 

And on the XT Live as well:

 

POD%20XT%20Live%20Drivers%20Up%20To%20Da

 

Any ideas or suggestion? Am I missing something obvious?

 

Thanks in advance...

the older workbench software uses java (and to be clear the older variaxes will not use the newer workbench HD software)

basically i would uninstall workbench, and ALL versions of java from your machine...

reinstall workbench and let workbench install java for you.

this has worked for some in the past.

Hi guys.  How do I uninstall Variax Workbench?  It doesn't appear in Add/Remove programs and I can't find an uninstaller anywhere.  It also doesn't appear I can uninstall it from the Line 6 Monkey.

but its always been in add/remove for me... so i'm only guessing.

The only thing in the Uninstall list is Line 6 Uninstaller.  I also have the Monkey and HD Edit installed on my machine.  I want to keep those but  since I sold my Variax I'd like to kill that.  There is no separate uninstaller for the Variax software.  I am wondering if the only way to kill it is to uninstall everything and then re-install HD EDIT and the Monkey.

Page 20 of the HD Edit manual...
 
"The Line 6 Uninstaller allows you to remove POD HD500 Edit, and/or any other installed Line 6 applications or device drivers individually."
 
Looks like I have my answer.
