WinX10 Version 1.6 by Craig Keefer

Software available at the HTI Shareware Library.

WinX10 has been around for a while and it's really a nice program. Like most, it's easy and intuitive to use.

The help system is contained in short text files accompanying the program to help get you started. You'll need vbrun200.dll in your \windows\system directory to run WinX10. As you can see, you can load in a background .bmp floorplan.

WinX10 Program Screen

Clicking on an icon gives you direct command (On / Off / Dim) and double clicking brings up the setup window. Right click and drag to move the icon around the screen.

Setting up new devices is done on this pop-up which allows you to select ON and OFF icons from a small library as well as define the Unit Code and display parameters.

The event scheduling popup lets you make the standard selections and pressing "save" and the code is written into the schedule for you.

Once you're all set up you save the schedule file and download the events to the CP290. The print functions give you a list of your devices and all scheduled items for each as well as a printout of the floorplan with devices shown. The panel on the right of the screen gives you direct control of the CP290.

This is a nice program and gives you good visual picture of your system. It has sunset / sunrise settings and even provides a quick "Spring Ahead" and "Fall Behind" function for daylight savings time.

Download a copy (only 125 KB .zip file) and try it out for. You don't need the CP290 installed to review the software and for those of you unsure of what it (CP290 controller) can do, this is the best way to make an evaluation before you buy it. If you use WinX10 and find it useful, you send $20.00 to register your copy. In return you will receive a disk containing the latest registered version of the program, extra ICONs, an ICON editor, a DOS program to update "sun related" events automatically, and a DOS program to list the contents of your X10 controller to the screen, printer or a file.
