DIS setup question

I have followed a detailed instructions and get the diagnosis head to show up and test okay in DIS. But when I try and go into diagnosis it throws an error.

Any ideas?

Nobody. I followed the instructions exactly and dis sees the adapter and I do the connection setup and it tests fine. Just won't let me diagnose. Sad day. I guess I'll have to be happy with INPA until I figure this out.

Even if you have the diagnostic head set up ,, you still have to activate it on( VMWare ) Virtual Machine . You should get aVM window that pops up when you open DIS to enable the software . When I get to my laptop later today,, I'll take some pics to show you what I mean .

I remember that I got the same error msg you have . That was before I figured out what to do after a bunch of failed attempts . Not sure you have the same issue ,, but it seems like it is .

First picture : When you open DIS you should get the VMware Workstation window .

2nd picture : In the commands window click on resume virtal machine ..

3RD : Click ok .

4TH : Click run ..then it will start uplaoding . didnt post that pic ..Notice at the bottom it says disconnected .

5TH : Notice the diagnostic head is now connected.... Minimize it ,, now you can run the diagnostics .

6TH ; Open DIS .. notice that the green bars are lit up .. Click diagnose ,, now you should be good to go ..

Here is a tip ... push the keys Alt/Ctrl together to switch the arrow back n forth from the DIS program and windows .

I also uplaoded a DIS user manual that is very help full . To understand what all the symbols stand for , and how tor run a test plan on errors and stuff ,,in case you need it .

Is there a reason why you want DIS over ISTA?

ISTA can be run natively on windows and supersedes DIs
