have you spotted that the default analysis module does not have the same
name between v1 and v2 collection software? So .plt files you create off
the machines will need to have the correctly named analysis module in this

In essence, the software keeps telling us that no data can be identified in A1 cell and consequently refuses to run the plate.

If the plate record is modified during the pre run the run is aborted prior to collection on account of the same 'supposed' error as above.
