I have changed some weeks ago from MTSII to a Pico Central Unit with bus a converter from Massoth and parallel loco and universal handhelds from LGB and I have also a LGB 55045. Can I use this device also as an interface to control my parts?
Sorry, I can give you only following information:
The LGB Programming Interface 55045 is only suitable to program decoders and modules (without connection with a central unit), but not for controlling. It’s true the Piko Central Uniti is built by Massoth, but there is no exit for controlling by PC like the Massoth 800Z or 1200Z.

How many colors shall I use for Windows running STELLWERK 2001?
Memory size using Windows climbs for "True color " enormous . Therefore you better use only "High color (16 bits)" . Since STELLWERK 2001 uses max. 256 colors only, the parameter "256 colors" also can be used. Memory size depends on pixels of screen size, resolution and percentage factor of track layout height and width, Please, use track layout height and width only as large as necessary.

May be you have to send the file to me to establish the real cause.
Track symbols (straight or diagonal) are often put together from too many small pieces.
