PSB.2009.06.001
Limitations
When the PowerLite1725 / 1735W exhibit a Lamp Cover Open error state,
EMP Monitor cannot detect the error. The reason is that when the lamp
cover is opened, the primary power source that reports the error state to
EMP Monitor is turned off immediately. This is different from other models
which make the secondary power source turn off under the same condition.
Note: EMP Monitor Ver. 4.xx is not compatible with EMP Monitor Ver. 3.05 and earlier
versions. EMP Monitor Ver. 4.xx cannot read the setting files of EMP Monitor Ver. 3.05
and earlier versions.

Security alert screen (Cinema Color Editor)
The functions of the three buttons displayed in the security alert screen are explained
below.
[Keep Blocking] --- Enables you to register a started application in the “Exceptions”
program of the Windows Firewall. The network port that the
application uses is blocked. By selecting this button once, this
security alert message will not be shown when starting the
application next time.
[Unblock] ------------- Enables you to register a started application in the “Exceptions”
program of the Windows Firewall and unblock the network port that
the application uses. By selecting this option once, this security alert
message will not be shown when starting the application next time.
[Ask me later]-------- When you want to select both buttons above or select either one
later, this button is selected. The started application is not registered
in the “Exceptions” program of the Windows Firewall and the
network that the application uses is not unblocked. However, when
restarting the application, the same security alert message is shown.
•
PC applications will work normally on Windows XP with SP2 if the “Unblock
Item” is selected when the security alert screen is shown.

Operating Status Report
When selecting the Keep Blocking button, the security alert message is closed and the
main screen of each application is displayed.
[EMP NS Connection Application]
Port 3620 is necessary for searching for projectors. If this port is blocked, projectors are not
detected.
The other applications operate normally. However, there is a case that execution of
automatic search disables automatic detection. This occurs when projectors are registered
for automatic detection in EMP Monitor before installing SP2, then the registered projectors
may not be detected again after SP2 installation. Therefore it is recommended to select
Unblock in the security alert screen.
If “Keep Blocking” has been selected when starting the application for the first
time, and the blocking needs to be removed, complete the execution of the application and
proceed with unblocking as follows:
a.) Start the Windows Security Center. Double click the icon in the shape of a shield that
is always displayed on the taskbar after the installation of SP2.

b.) Select and start Windows Firewall
