Create.exe is a stand-alone application used to control an iRobot Create via a Serial or TCP/IP connection.
This application was written using Delphi 4.
Create.188.8.131.52.exe - the latest and greatest. As of Create.1.0.1.x, Built-in ActiveX Server so you can use this as a gateway to your Create from any program that can make ActiveX calls.
Documentation is on the Help menu, but very incomplete.
Documentation for the ActiveX Server.
When started, you will be prompted for a Configuration File. Just skip it the first time, but then go to the Configuration tab and click Save Config to save your ComPort/TCP/IP settings for next time, as well as the video URL. You can then modify the settings directly in the config file or from the Configuration tab.
Here are some Sample Scripts that you can Copy and Paste to the Send Script tab in Create.exe.
Here is a utility to give you a TCP to Serial Port conduit.
Here is the Source Code you will need to compile this application using Delphi 4. The only non-standard Dephi Component that I used is the TComPort component for Serial communications.
Createv184.108.40.206.zip - Delphi 4 Sourcecode (updated with some missing files 5/9/08)
TComPortComplete.zip - TComPort component source code.
Even if you don't use Delphi, the souce-code is pretty easy to read and understand. Just look at CreateMain.pas to see how it's all done.
