What does "cactus-hid.dll" missing means during firmware update?

What you may have experienced is that the firmware update process does not start after clicking the UPDATE button. When this occurs you will see a message on the STATUS bar telling you that "cactus-hid.dll" is missing.

This DLL file is originally included with your download, however your computer's anti-virus program may recognized it as a threat to the system because of its relatively low reputation (number uses) and have deleted on your behalf.

You can undo this by going into your anti-virus program, select the tasks it processed and revert it to original setting. The file will then reappear in the installation folder.

If you need further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you.

To help us better help you, always state the exact firmware version installed on your Cactus device(s), such as: "1.1.013", "FUJ.1.002", "NIK.A.001", "v.103".

For the time being, Cactus V6 (MK1) running on firmware version 2.1.001 can be triggered by a V6 II (MK2) running on Multi-brand HSS firmware (e.g. 1.1.013) and not by X-TTL firmware versions:  PEN.A.001 NIK.A.001 OLY.A.001.  No schedule has been released yet for an "A" version firmware on the V6 (MK1). 

Cactus RF60X / RF60 Firmware versions A04 and A03 currently ONLY works with PEN.A.001 NIK.A.001 and OLY.A.001.  Other "A" version of X-TTL firmware will be released soon. For both Multi-brand HSS and X-TTL firmware versions (FUJ, SIG, SON), install firmware version 103 / 205 on your RF60X / RF60.
