The CAN-Do executable just runs, and does not attempt to install other software,
unless it has been corrupted. What OS, I have run CAN-Do on XP, Vista, Win7,
and Win8.1 with no apparent problems. If corrupted, re-download to a different
folder. Current versions are in the 200s, so please try those.
In versions that have an ini file, if the file is not found in the folder with the exe,
an ini file is created. I have not experienced any problems with the ini file.
I do not remember the first version to use the ini file, looks like v159.
Is there a reason that you are using the older versions of CAN-Do?
I suppose that the on-line zip files could have been hacked, but this is
the first that I have heard of CAN-Do "trying to install other software".
Which version specifically, I will try it here.
Try ver 219, from before I started adding the Tesla S stuff.
Maybe your unzipper is adding something to the exe file?
