Required Files

ECUTalk on a PC/Laptop requires the .NET Framework 1.1 - get it from Windows Update, or here:
.NET Framework 1.1 and then (optionally) get and install SP1:
.NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1

ECUTalk on a Pocket PC requires the .NET Compact Framework and a Pocket PC that supports the .NET Compact Framework (nearly all Pocket PC 2000 and more recent). It also requires that you are able to hook up a serial device by some method, most often with a null modem adaptor and a serial sync cable, but you should determine this for your specific PDA. Unfortunately not all will be able to use serial devices. Also, this may be obvious to some, but you also require a serial consult interface. See Blazt or PLMS for serial consult interfaces.

Getting running with Pocket PC:
If you have Windows Mobile 2003 or Windows Mobile 5, which come with a version of the .NET Compact Framework in ROM, you may be able to skip steps 1 and 3 - you can return to these steps only if the application does not run (it may run faster with the version installed in ROM, so its worth a try).

  1. Download the .NET Compact Framework 1.0 SP3 Redistributable
  2. Connect your PDA to your PC with ActiveSync
  3. Install the downloaded file - this will install the installer (im guessing this allows you to install it on multiple Pocket PC's) locally to your hard drive, and then installs it to the detected Pocket PC.
  4. Download ECUTalk (see below)
  5. "Explore" from ActiveSync menu
  6. Double click "My Pocket PC"
  7. Create a folder to place ECUTalk in if required, either in Pocket PC space or storage card.
  8. Copy ECUTalk executable to the desired folder. ActiveSync will copy them across, showing the Copy and Convert dialog. Note that you can retrieve the ECUTalk log from this folder after enabling logging in the application
  9. Right click on ECUTalk executable and create a shortcut
  10. Cut this shortcut, and paste it where you desire within the \Windows\Start Menu\ or \Windows\Start Menu\Programs folders.
  11. Installation done! Run ECUTalk from the Start menu after hooking up your consult interface to your car. When you decide on your best setup, check the autoconnect box so you will not have to manually setup each time the program is started.
