Uploading a .axs file to Netlinx controller

Does anyone know how to upload a .axs file to a netlinx controller? I want to leave usable code on the controller so I can pull it back off at a later date. So I need it to be a .axs file so I can open it in Netlinx Studio. I can only send .src files. Please help?

    No can do. You can only send and run compiled code, the .tkn file.

    You can send the .axs file to the Master, just not from within NetLinx Studio. Use an FTP client.

    I misunderstood the question. Sure you can store any file you want on the master. I thought the file needed to run.

    You can compile and download with source and then extract also, no need to send a duplicate .axs file. The source file when retrieved is the .axs file but it's just in a zipped format.

    If you compile with source, the entire workspace is loaded on the master. When you retrieve it, it gets neatly packaged in an AXW file (which is really a renamed ZIP). That way you get the IR files, all the modules, and even the device properties all saved.

    I must be doing something dreadfully wrong because I?ve never been able to get that kind of neatly packaged file. If I build with source, download, and then retrieve I don?t get my workspace back or anything that resembles a workspace. If I rename the .src to .axw and then open it, two folders get created, ?Documents and Settings? and ?Program Files?.

    If I drill down the Program Files directory I get to Program Files\Common Files\AMXShare\AXIs\NetLinx.axi. And when I drill down the Documents and Settings directory I get to the .axs and .axi files I created for the project.

    I don?t get any IR files, or .tko files, and I don?t have the mapping for the files since I don?t get a workspace back either.

    Any idea where I?ve gone astray?

    Thanks.

    That basically sums up what you get when the NetLinx compiler creates the .SRC file...a ZIP file that contains only the source code.

    I'm sorry, I really have to get out of the habit of responding to posts before I've finished my morning coffee.

    The AXW file is a product of exporting a workspace to go, not from downloading a compiled source. I do neither very frequently, and got them mixed up :( .
