Software CD Problems.

Is there any way to get my microtech to sync up to my lap top without the CD?

the software can be found online, i think @ microtechefi.com or something, but you need to have or buy the laptop dongle to get it to communicate

I have the dongle, but now the problem is that I cant get the ap top to see the ECU. I have changed my ports to 1 and tried 2 but I cant figure this thing out.

Are you using a straight through serial cable?

Do you have built in serial ports or are you using a USB adapter?

Does this laptop have an internal modem? If so, the one COM port is usually used for the modem.

Does the ECU have power?

What happens exactly when you try to connect?

I'm hooking the ecu to the laptop via a usb cable adapter. When I try and connect the microtech says that ports 1 and 2 are dissabled. When I try and go into the setup I am automaticly set up in port 4. Im not sure if this helps clear any thing up though.

Disable COM1 or 2 (whichever is not used for an internal modem) in Device Manager. Then go into the properties of your USB adapter and reassign it to become the COM port you disabled.

Because the Microtech software was designed in 1846, it can only use COM1 and COM2.

I've not spent much time on it lately. Trying to finish the car (interior at this point).
