I have the following problem with AMS Device Manager 12.5 when adding a device (HART protocol). If its DD file is compiled (via DD-IDE) with tokenizer 5 or 6 all the device methods are executed correctly. Instead, if the DD is compiled with tokenizer 8 then a blank window with only OK, ABORT (greyed out) and HELP buttons is displayed. For instance, in the DD file there is a method to select the device operating mode. When the DD file is compiled with tokenizer 5 or 6 a list-box with the various choices is correctly displayed in the method window; if instead the DD file is compiled with tokenizer 8 the list-box doesn't get displayed at all. If I use this DD file with SDC625 everything is fine (all tokenizer versions).
Thank you in advance for your help
Have you been working with the device vendor for these DD files or are you developing them yourself? We have a number resources available on our website including development toolkits and ways to contact our support team.
To answer your question, for *.fm8 files you will need to use HART method interpreter 2. In the device's *.ini file you should see something like this:
I hope this helps.

In reply to alexc:
Alex, Just add the following lines to the .ini file
Also, please have the device vendor contact our toolkit team. They can work with them directly on this integration. Best Regards, Nicholas Meyer
and methods now work fine!
