Hi, I've tried to set up ROS industrial for a simulated ABB IRB120 arm using robotstudio. I have robotstudio v5.15.02 installed on windows 7, and ROS indigo. After following these instructions: , I get an error in robotstudio saying the following(and a similar message for ROS_motionServer):

10172: Background task ROS_StateServer

Description refuse to start. Can't set PP to the main routine.


  • The module that contains the main routine was not loaded since the module file is missing in the target directory.
  • The module that contains the main routine was not loaded since the configuration file has no entry for automatic loading of the module.
  • The main routine is missing.
  • The main entry is corrupted.

Actions Load the module by hand or perform an I-start when the cause of the problem is removed.

The rapid files are where they should be and I've set up automatic loading of modules as instructed. Any ideas? Cheers Ben

Have you seen the RobotStudio-specific tutorial? abb/Tutorials/RobotStudio.

Hi, thanks for the quick response. Yes I did see that tutorial and went through it too before the InstallServer one.

I recommend you send a message to the ROS-Industrial mailing list. Chances are there are more users on that list than on this site. Do please report back when/if you receive an answer / solution.
