First of all: BIG UP for everybody getting thru this Corona crisis !!

My issue:

When I update an (old) ESP-88 to the new firmware it becomes in the CS hardware manager an ESP-00 ?

So it doesn't accept the design anymore and it's serialcommands etc.

I really need to update a system to work with the newest Designmax speakers etc.

The ESP has now firmware 4.620 and i want it to update to firmware 4.820

is there a workaround for this issue?

Hope you can help me out !?

Hello Richard,

I hope you and your loved ones are doing well.

You can easily convert an ESP-88 file to ESP-00.

  • Create a shortcut of CDesinger.exe located in the bin folder.
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Bose\ControlSpace x.x\bin
  • In the shortcut properties window add "(space)-XF" at the end of the target path and click OK.
  • Start CSD using this shortcut
  • Open your ESP-88 design file
  • A window should pop-up asking if you want to convert the ESP-88 design to a ESP-00 design and click Yes

  • Save this converted file as a new design and you should be able to upload this converted design file
