Allpro USB adapter setup

Postby Whyzee » Thu Feb 07, 2019 9:50 pm

Hey guys, recieved my allpro last week and can't get it set up. I've also got an obdlink cable that seems to connect okay and is picked up by pcmhammer.

I've tried to follow the instructions on obddiag.net but without luck (downloaded flashmagic - not sure whether i need this or not). I suppose I really just need straight forward step by step instructions on how to do it...

Any help would be appreciated!

Plug into your Pcm, Power up the Pcm with key/switch on, plug the USB into your computer and let it install the drivers, that's all folks.

If you need drivers, I used Windows CH340 Driver.

If you need to clean your com ports up ... Open a Administrator command prompt, enter the following
Code: Select all
set DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES=1
devmgmt.msc
When device manager opens, select View, Show hidden devices.
Browse to Ports (COM & LPT), expand and remove offending (all) com ports.

Flashmagic is not needed.

-Enjoy

Thanks mate, I just tried it with that driver but no luck!

Not sure where I'm going wrong - I've never had an issue like this before. Got numerous interface cables and they all work without problems with the correct drivers.. I'm far from an expert though.

I just get this message when I hit 'test'. It tells me that it can't initialise.

Appreciate the help

I just tried it on two other computers with the same result... maybe I should contact Alex at obddiag?

Yes you should, and send him the self test fail. You'll be using VPW so maybe its ok anyway for your needs but it does have a fault :(

Yeah, the "CAN wiring failed" message sounds like a hardware problem. Mine prints "CAN wiring is OK" at that point.

That said, I'm kind of surprised the app even noticed, because everything after the "All Pro Id" message was really only intended for human consumption. It looks like there's something funny at the end of the self test message which is confusing our response parser. Notice the "[1-" at the end of the self test and the "0]" where it should have printed the firmware ID (which would be "1.25" or something like that).

Please post the contents of the debug log, I'd like to fix the parsing.
Please don't PM me with questions about tuning or flashing - start a thread instead. Thanks!

Com6 and issues ... Personally I would clean my ports first ...

Will try playing with comm ports again. Won't be home until next weekend so will give it another go then, but did try it on a brand new computer - came out of the box yesterday actually and gave the same result

the issue is that hyphen or the length of the string. probably easy enough to fix the code to handle it and keep running, but using a faulty interface is dangerous so im not that inclined to do so. :(
