2011 VB6 Vervion

In recent months our 6 year old VB6 software has exhibited some problems. We are not yet sure about what causes the problem but it appears that the Medoc VB6 software package loses control of the TSA resulting in "Fast Drive" errors and unstable temperature ramps. The problems started about the same time some new antivirus and security protection was installed on all the dental school computers and we suspect some interference.
. We have, so far, not been successful in fixing the problem, but the VB.NET version below seems to do better although still in early development (the project had been interrupted by other, then, more pressing projects).
TSA UNC Application under test. (August 25, 2011).
And its default file. (August 25, 2011).

Audible Alarm / Coolant Level

It is suspected that a Pathway audible alarm may sound when the cooling water reaches a critical level even though the refrigeration unit front panel red LED is not lit.
Adding some distilled water as indicated in the "Pathway Operating Manual" (Chapter 13.1 page 74 in the 2005 version) has fixed the problem in the past.
Make sure to use 95% distilled water (NOT sterile) and 5% alcohol.
