Re: CAN-Do: a CAN-message Analysis Tool

Correct - the group number is not included in the 7bb responses. Right now, I plot the group number from the 79b along with the 7bb with the index of choice and manually/visually only examine the 7bb curve immediately following the desired 79b group number.

I also have some perl scripts I use to automate this but I prefer the more interactive CanDo interface for initial investigations (when I don't really know what I'm looking for - just looking for visual clues).

Re: CAN-Do: a CAN-message Analysis Tool

I suspect this is a personal problem (probably a virus of some sort), but I was wondering if anyone else was experiencing similar behavior. Whenever I execute the Can-Do executable (except for versions 139-158), it starts the installation application for an unrelated piece of software. Not a big deal, I just click "cancel" and then CanDo starts. Gary, any ideas what changed from 124 to 139 that could make this issue go away but come back in version 159? In 159, your comments say you added the INI file and the other installer starts as soon as I click "OK" on the "Created INI" popup but there was no INI in version 123 & 124 and I see the problem there, too. Any thoughts?

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?

I am on Win7 and the only reason I tried the older versions is because I was experiencing this issue with the most recent. Any version from 159 up exhibits this behavior for me. I just tried it (most recent) on another Win7 PC but get a different error : "Component 'MSCOMM32.OCX' or one of its dependancies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid"
Anyway - I suspect something got corrupted on my main home computer. Just thought I'd double-check that noone else saw a similar behavior.

Slightly different versions of "the same" operating system can easily
have different files available, or missing, depending upon what was
originally included, and what has been installed or uninstalled before
CAN-Do is tried.

Generally just trying to run CAN-Do will notify you of required files
that are missing or not properly registered. Doing the first run (s) of
CAN-Do in Administrator mode often helps with the registration.

If the files are actually missing, the files are often available via my web site,
use the link in my Signature.
