G'day all
when I got the Guzzidiag suite from Mark I loaded it into my daughters little Sony laptop, I hooked it up to the bike, all good, straight on
when my son recently visited he kindly gave me a 'garage laptop' for this job, he loaded Windows 10 onto it for me, loaded the Guzzidiag programs and all appeared good.
I hooked it up to the bike but this time there was no recognition of any of the 3 com ports !!!!!
whats going on ?, I put a jump drive into the com ports, all good
The Sony pc did not require me to find the port it just did it ..
Could it be Windows 10 ? that's the only difference between the two that I can see
Any help appreciated.

Trev,

go to the GuzziDiag website and download the driver that turns a USB port into a Com port. (I think it is called FTDI Driver/Treiber on GD). Download this and install it. The one supplied with Win 10 is a later version and is not compatible.

You will then get a request to upgrade the driver through Windows Update - so don't - you might even disable that update. If you do you will get what you do now and you will have to do this process again (and again, and again) until you learn.

Have fun mate.

Hi Tony
Thanks for your help
This laptop will stay down in the garage and not connect with the web so there will be no updates to worry about
You say 'download and install'
I understand the download bit but the 'install'
Where do I install it, I presume in the folder where I have the Guzzidiag suite ?
Sorry to be a pain but I am an old dinosaur where this pc stuff is concerned

when you download it, doubleclick on it to install - or ask your son, he could talk you through it...

Wayne, you need a 4 lb sledge hammer for those extra special "technical adjustments". True story!

Hi again Tony
All fixed, that file was in the suite Mark sent me and I did not know what it was or that I had to 'install' or double click on it, dhhhhh
Anyway, double clicked on it and presto, away it went, followed a few prompts and all good.
Hooked it up to Jo, the bike and com 3 came up and I was 'connected'.
Reset the TPS from 5.0 to 4.6 and reset auto learners, job done, she idles just fine and took out on the highway, smooooooth.
I'm one happy chappy, thanks to all.
