Freescan

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Well I have just tried to run my freescan to no avail? Can someone help please.

When I open freescan the status messages window opens and a window pops up and says cannot find the file specified.

When I close this, the main window opens

Running on Windows XP, Packard Bell Lappy, with a USB cable that I have purchased from Bibs.

The programme will load and eventually assigns COM1

Set the Ms delay to 100

Units to Deg C and MPH,

Force date to interact,

Select vehicle make window shows Lotus Esprit 4 cylinder,

but

There is nothing in the window below as shown in the manual.

It will eventually assign Com1 as mentioned above.

If I then click the start button, I get the message:

Application error:

Warning

Wait comm event()failed with the following error:

The handle is invalid:

Port 1

When I click on OK to this:

I get a runtime error and the programme closes:

I know i am a computer numpty, But am I doing something obvious?

PLease Help

Thats a com port error. Invalid handle means the com port did not open. Freescan does not do proper error checking when opening a port, and as a result has tried to use a port that is not open.

You need to find the port number that the USB cable has been assigned. If that is above com8, then the port number assigned will need re-mappeding as Freescan also will not work with port numbers above 8.

There is an existing thread on here somewhere, where I posted as to why somebody was having a problem using something like com16 with Freescan. Bibs then posted a link to an article about port number assignment and how to change it.

First step is to find that thread and Bibs link and take it from there. That link is tried and tested, and probably more comprehensible than some blurb I would end up writing.

Just done a quick search, I am not sure how to add a link to a topic, but it is titled

'Freescan Programe, Freescan Crashes'.

Ok. I better go and hunt for it! Thank You.

Ok. I have been into the device manager and there are no ports what so ever. What do I need to do ?

Hi Nick. All sorted. I found your original post :wallbash:

Actually ended up at LEC.

Followed the instructions and "BINGO" all sorted.

Thanks all for your help :2guns:
