Remote VEConfigure error on upload

Hi. I have a site with Quattro 48/5000, SmartSolar 250/100, CCGX, BMV 712, 5280W Solar Panels and 615AH Trojan AGM Battery. My issue is when I try to make adjustment to the Quattro using Remote VEConfigure on my VRM portal I get an error while trying to upload. Is there anything I'm not doing right? Please help.

I get this all the time. but have a fix

if you download the file and then open it you get this issue

If you download the file and save it (say to downloads ) then open it, its then fine


The cause, when you open the file directly the file is made RO and there for you cant write back to it.

if you find the file then go to properties and change it FROM Read only (RO) to Read Write (RW) then that also fixes the issue

The files were older saved versions and not opened but just uploaded after a firmware upgrade. Your problem and work around makes sense, however not in my case.

@imo, I have had a similar issue and found that that if the multi firmware changed and I used a previously created file on an older firmware, it failed. I simply downloaded a new config file from the multi and made changes in it and uploaded fine after.

Hi @imo

Did you get it to work?

You might have the same file opened twice, preventing a file save.
