Set Default DMX provider

Recommended Posts

It  seems odd, but every time I start Vision I have to  reset the DMX provider to Sacn. Is there a setting I can change so I don’t need to do this?

Hey Pat, this sounds like a permissions issue of some sort - Vision does remember the last DMX provider. Is this a university computer? Or a mac?


Possible explanations are:

  • Deep freeze (or similar backup software used often in schools) deletes the config file nightly, causing DMX provider to revert to default.
  • Mac permissions can be finicky (especially in schools as well) make sure you have full admin rights if this is the case. 
  • Windows guest accounts or limited permissions could cause this.
  • The last one I can think of is some super picky antivirus could be preventing the config file from being written (but this is less likely)
