I hope joukoy can figure the crash reason.


I can open this file without any errors.
Please test if it opens when "Search Tables" unchecked from "File Info" tab.

I figured the issue, after finding that it works fine on the other computer. It was a mising file in the xml folder, the reference_cvn file.

Here is the file, extract in the xml folder and restart program.

I apologize if this has been covered before. 2003 1mb p59. I didn't notice an obvious way to see if a p59 .bin file is intel or AMD. My understanding is the AMD chipped hardware will allow either file but an intel should only use an intel file.
I ask because I was just dropped off what ended up being a non stock 2003 pcm with an intel chip then it dawned on me that I don't even have files separated by intel/amd... my bad.

p.s. Thanks guys for some awesome software :thumbup:

Actually you can search for AMD, See here

And, You can run AMD 1m OS'es on both Intel and AMD chipped PCM's.

You cannot run Intel Only OS'es on a AMD chipped PCM.
The only known Intel Only 1m OS is OsID:12579405 (that I know of), so just don't use that Os and you're good to go!

Thank you for that Gampy,
I completely misunderstood, so, just to clarify one last time...On the rarer intel p59 you can use any of them but an AMD chipped p59 you should stick to AMD type files(use the search you guys worked out if in doubt)? I'm going to flow/clean the injectors in a few mins and then deliver the pcm, injectors and a few other parts in an while so I'll double check here before I go.
Thanks again :)

[edit] My apologies! It appears I misread your words, you are not confused ...

That is correct!

[delete] Still a bit confused ...

From the OS point of view ...
If it's an AMD OS it will work on both 1m chips.
If it's an Intel OS it will work only on Intel 1m chips.

If you search and find that sequence it is AMD and will work on both 1m chips. (Will work on All 1m PCM's)
If you search and do not find that sequence it is Intel and will work only on Intel 1m chips. (The only known OS that fits this category is OsID:12579405)

From the PCM point of view ...
If it's a AMD 1m chipped PCM, it can only run AMD 1m OS'es. (It cannot run OsID:12579405)
If it's a Intel 1m chipped PCM, it can run ALL 1m OS'es.

Sorry so late, boat broke in the middle of the lake on the kids, had to go get them ... Bad load of gasoline!

Sorry you guys had trouble at the lake.

As to what you posted, yup, that's what I am gathering now. I had it ass backwards before so thanks for helping me straighten my thoughts. :thumbup:
