I'll let doro do that as I need a break.

Safe to say the files in the directory are the correct ones from the zip file dated:

ftd2xx.h  02/02/2007
ftbudui.dll  25/07/2007
ftlang.dll    25/07/2007
ftd2xx.dll   01/08/2007
ftd2xx.lib   01/08/2007
ftdbus.sys    07/08/2007
ftdbus.inf   16/08/2007

ftdiun2k.ini  16/02/2007
ftdiunin.exe  24/05/2006

Run the AirNav RadarBox 2007 software. Click start and go to the Help menu, About box. Check the firmware version you have installed.

To all users: note that the RadarBox 2007 V1.2 software will only work with the last firmware installed. It will not work with the previous firmware version. Also the new firmware needs the new drivers. The HW//SW disconnection issue was caused by the old firmware and drivers so they really need to be updated.

How can we get a Firmware version from the About menu, thought it showed only software version, which is 1.2

Also this raises a question....

If the Box is at latest firmware (1.2) (think!!!)
How do we install the drivers, if it can only be done by going via updating previous ones, which do not install correctly so as to be able to update!!!

May have lost the plot I know, but after trying so many installs it losing me..

Can you please post a step by step on what to install and what to do taking that the Box is on firmware 1.2 and no software or drivers installed

Lets make life easy.

Tell me how to do it from having nothing installed (Software or Drivers)

I'll do it and tell you where it fails.

DaveG,

Try this:

- Windows Control Panel (From Windows Start menu)

- Add Hardware

- Next

- Yes, I have already connected the Hardware

- Add a new Hardware Device

- Install hardware I select from a list

- Next

- Show all Devices

- Next

Windows might take a while "thinking" at this point!

- Have Disk

- Browse to /AirNav ReadarBox 2007/Drivers

- FTDIBUS.INF should be visible and selected

- Click Open

etc - I stopped at this point, but this should work if you dont have a driver installed to update.

This doesn't show the Firmware version, only the RB software version.

AirNav. Can you confirm one thing. Once you have upgraded the firmware, can it be overwritten by an older version. The reason I say this is I cleaned my PC out this afternoon and started with the disc and then went to the latest update and did not reinstall the previous update. I am showing the latest drivers, and the latest ANRB version and it hasn't crashed since 14:30 still going strong, so am I fully up-to-date

Allocator,

Thanks for try, but it returns - "The specified location does not contain information about your hardware"

Question now is:  how to find what firmware is on the box?

Did you install the CD Drivers, and if so how did they display in Device Managers, as Airnav Radarbox Drivers that you then right clicked on to update?

ANRB12
2007/09/08

I did use the right drivers to install, verified them with the ones in the Beta folders, but still the 2.0.0.0 19/5/2006 remains after installing.

It does sound like your Firmware has not been updated.

Just confirm that you have the following files in your /AirNav RadarBox 2007/ directory:

ANRB.exe                  08/09/2007
FirmWareUpdater.exe 08/09/2007
ftd2xx.dll                   01/08/2007
rb.dll                         28/08/2007

Again, check the dates.

Doro, DaveG:

Instructions:

1- Completely uninstall the old drivers (Control Panel, AirNav RadarBox, Properties, Uninstall Drivers) .
2- Unplug and plug again the USB cable and when asking for drivers point to the new ones (double check this)

Important: Our Hardware guys had issues sometimes with Windows: if you plug the USB cable to a specific USB plug it could be using the new driver. But if you change the plug in your computer to a different one Windows might select the old drivers again.

You keep missing the point.....

There are no Airnav drivers listed in Device Manager.  They are listed as USB Serial Converter.  I guess because the update failed first time around and uninstalling means you cant get the previous drivers back because they do not install with 1.2 firmware or 1.1, no idea what I'm on now.

So will try, but it will be "USB Serial Converter" that is uninstalled
