You will need the latest .NET framework from Microsoft to be able to execute the program. Notice that there is a different driver for Windows XP.
For USB connectivity, you will need:
- USB capable device, such as the Xminilab HW 2.0, or Xprotolab HW 1.7.
- Update the the device with the latest firmware.
- Connect the USB device and install the USB Driver. I currently don't have a digital signature from a certificate authority, so you will get a big red warning when installing the driver. Trust me, the driver is just WINUSB with my own .inf file.
Xprotolab hardware version 1.4 and 1.5 don't have USB, so you need the UART to USB cable for connection to the PC.
This is PRELIMINARY software, meaning that it partially works.
New version 0.24 needs to have the driver reinstalled.
Thanks to Murray Lindeblom for his contribution on the WINUSB drivers.
This application is open source, so that anyone can port it to another OS, or perhaps just use the source for a similar project. Here is a snapshot of the program:
