Getting Error 1800: [Target] [target name] cannot find defined target machine, while downloading program in the HMI

  • Target machine is OFF.

  • Download cable is not connected to the defined port on the editor PC.

  • Download cable connections are loose.

  • Invalid download cable is used.

  • Download cable is damaged.

  • Connected target machine is not supported.

When using Ethernet download, the error message appears due to one of the following:

  • Vijeo-Designer Runtime is not running or the target machine is not turned ON.

  • You entered an incorrect IP address in the Target's download properties.

  • The IP address set in the Target properties is not for a valid Vijeo-Designer target machine. You probably typed an IP address that belongs to other types of equipment.
