VM Desktop default setup (DirectX and AXIS)

VM Desktop default setup for DirectX devices and AXIS joystick

VM Desktop default setup

Device driver selection​

In the device driver setup page, only one driver is seen at a time, the default selected driver is the DirectX driver.

Used (= active) driver can select from ​combo box items:


Axis device driver supports AXIS T8311 Joystick, AXIS T8312 Keypad, and AXIS T8313 Jogdial.


During Axis device driver test period, we detected a case (do not find out the reason) when Axis device driver was not viewing id driver selections and in Spotter.log there was an error message like: Exception in reading parameter information from installed control device driver

System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: An exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. ---> System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {7CC50CF7-AB83-4DF7-80A9-CA43FB554BBB} failed due to the following error: 8007007e The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E).
To solve this.

  • ​start the command prompt with administrator rights and go to the similar directory as: C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Roaming\DVMS\spotter\9.3.0\\ControlDevices 

  • run: REGSVR32 /U AxisJoystickModuleX64.dll and after that REGSVR32 AxisJoystickModuleX64.dll
