Re: Alfadiag newbie needs help!
Well, I should be all up to date now. The ".NET Framework" thing had already been downloaded and installed before I started trying, but I guess it will have been pver-written by whatever Microsoft has just downloaded.
Unfortunately, still no joy. Won't connect to the older car at all (still asks if the ignition is on) and gives the same error message on the newer car.
I tried running a test on the "test" tab and it won't connect to the ECU at all, but if I select "ECU slow ini" (or whatever it's called), it does appear to receive some data back.
Anyway, rain and darkness have stopped play for now and I'm away a bit next week but I guess I ought to contact them if it's nothing simple. I was wondering whether I might have cocked things up by installing the software after downloading the ".NET framework" but before doing all the windows updates?
