can't figure out how to deal with Techstream
I'm fairly new here and I'm a computer dummy. I've been reading about the wonderful things you can do with Techstream so I bought it on e-bay. I received it today but I can't figure out how to get it going. Its version V7.10.030 and it came with the cable and two mini-discs. One says Techstream on it and has an Application File calledJ2534 - Mangoose Pro, a PDF J2534 Mangoose Pro Quick Start file, a TISKEY allpication file, the Techstream 7.10.030 application file, and a folder labeled DRIVER.
The other mini disc has "Toyota Techstream7.20.041, TIS KEY, MCVI Driver for Toyota, and MINI-VCI TIS" ALL .RAR files, and an application file J2534 - Mangoose Pro.
I have extracted the .rar files and now have .exe files for them.
The instructions from the PDF file are at best vague. I will give you exactly what it says:
1. Installing original OEM diagnostic software
Must first install the original OEM diagnostic software
Configuration options based on your product installation:
2. Installation J2534 - Mangoose Pro.exe;
Double click the installer. Setup Wizard screen appees Click [OK]
to complete the task
3. Installation in North America activator TISKEY.exe;
OEM factory diagnostic software must be carried out after installation
4. Install J2534 - Mangoose PRO USB drive
Connected for the first 2534 - Mangoose PRO USB cable to the PC, when
prompted to find a new hardware, press the USB device is installed properly
5.Click to go to TIS detection software, this time to completer the task
I have run Toyota Techstream 7.20.041.exe and then J2534 - Mangoose Pro.exe, but when I run the J2534 software I get a screen that shows "J2534 Technology" with a picture of a laptop on left, the Mini-VCI cable in the center, and a car on the right. Then there's a picture of the Mini-VCI cable on the bottom left with a green checkmark and a dialog box in the center with two question marks in it. If I try to make an entry in the box the screen goes away. I never get the setup screen as described in step 2.
I'm at a complete loss as to what to do. As I said I'm a computer dummy.
Please somebody HELP!
