How is a failed node replaced when the node is no longer transmitting?

Newbie

I cannot repace a failed node since the node does not transmit. I am using the Vizia + installer tool v 1.0.4.0 and the think stick adapter. I tried selecting the node and right clicking the mouse to remove the device but this does not work since the device does not transmit, Also tried to use  the node replace or remove command and the node is not discovered  when using the find unreachable nodes. Any suggestions?

thank you

    Is the installer tool currently the primary controller or the VRCPG?

     

    If a device is included in the network and does not work properly, you can use the “Remove/Replace Node” tool and it should do a complete search of all nodes and whatever node does not communicate back to the stick will be displayed and can be removed.

     

    Using the “Exclude Node” function will also remove nodes whether they are on the network or not. 

     

    If the failed node is not found using the “Replace/Remove” tool than it is not in the network anymore because that communicates with nodes that are directly connected with the USB stick (primary).

    If you close and re-open the program and re-open the file it should refresh the screen and that excluded node should disappear.

      The installer tool v 1.0.4.0 and the think stick adapter is the primary controller, I didn’t utilize the VRCPG for this installation since it is 110 plus nodes and I didn’t want to try entering custom node names, areas and associations with a remote.

      I did use the "remove/replace node" tool and it did a search for nodes that are not communicating and the defective node was not one of the nodes the tool found.

      I also tried using the "exclude node" function and it did not remove the defective node from the network.

      I have closed and opened the program after doing the exclude node function and the defective node is still present on device list.

      Thank you
