Note Note  You need administrator rights to install the Automotive Diagnostic Command Set Toolkit on your computer.

Follow these steps to install the Automotive Diagnostic Command Set Toolkit software:

  1. Insert the Automotive Diagnostic Command Set CD into the CD-ROM drive.
  2. Open Windows Explorer.
  3. Access the CD-ROM drive.
  4. Double-click on autorun.exe to launch the software interface.
  5. Start the installation. The installation program guides you through the rest of the installation process.
  6. If you have not already installed NI-CAN, the Automotive Diagnostic Command Set installer automatically installs the NI-CAN driver on your computer.

    Within the Devices & Interfaces branch of the MAX Configuration tree, NI CAN hardware is listed along with other hardware in the local computer system. If the CAN hardware is not listed here, MAX is not configured to search for new devices on startup. To search for the new hardware, press <F5>. To verify installation of the CAN hardware, right-click the CAN device, then select Self-test. If the self-test passes, the card icon shows a checkmark. If the self-test fails, the card icon shows an X mark, and the Test Status in the right pane describes the problem.

Refer to Appendix A, Troubleshooting and Common Questions, of the NI-CAN User Manual for information about resolving hardware installation problems.

If you are using the Automotive Diagnostic Command Set on an NI-XNET device, install the NI-XNET driver 1.0 or higher, NI-CAN 2.7 or higher, and the NI-CAN Compatibility Library on your computer.

To verify CAN hardware installation, right-click the CAN device and select Self-Test. If the self-test passes, the card icon shows a checkmark.

The NI-XNET CAN hardware interfaces are listed under the device name. To change the interface name, select a new one from the Interface Name box in the middle pane.

When installation is complete, you can access the Automotive Diagnostic Command Set functions in your application development environment.
