Con­nec­tion bet­ween firm­ware – FPGA – PC soft­ware (CBT2 does not mea­su­re)

CBT2 infor­ma­ti­on win­dow

In the info win­dow (> Help > About CAN-Bus Tes­ter 2…) you can see which PC soft­ware you are cur­r­ent­ly working with and which soft­ware is instal­led on the con­nec­ted tes­ter.

Newer pro­gram ver­si­ons of the CBT2 indi­ca­te that soft­ware ver­si­ons do not match. This mes­sa­ge can be hid­den per­ma­nent­ly. (Res­to­re with > Tools > Set­tings > Gene­ral > Dis­play all warning and messages again)

Older ver­si­ons do not show this note (befo­re from 01/​2016).

The pro­blems cau­sed by non-matching soft­ware ver­si­ons are dif­fe­rent. Often the tes­ter is detec­ted, but does not mea­su­re anything or mea­su­res wrong values. The­re­fo­re you should check if your soft­ware ver­si­ons match, espe­cial­ly befo­re sen­ding your device in for repair.
