This topic discusses the Automotive Diagnostic Command Set Toolkit installation for Microsoft Windows.
|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:
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.
The MAX Configuration tree Devices and Interfaces branch lists NI-XNET hardware (along with other local computer system hardware). If the NI-XNET hardware is not listed there, MAX is not configured to search for new devices on startup. To search for the new hardware, press <F5>. 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. 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 Troubleshooting and Common Questions in the NI-XNET Hardware and Software Help for information about resolving hardware installation problems. 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.
