New computer. Green thumbs up. No connection
« on: November 27, 2016, 12:54:45 PM »
So my old computer shiat the bed on me. My friend had an old computer with Win 7 on it, so i bought it.
I copied everything to do with jackal onto the new computer.
I downloaded the ftdi drivers. I get the green thumb on the bottom right, but the connection is still broke on the bottom left.
It doesnt prompt me to upload the tune from the ostrich.  It does go into writing mode when i open the tune, however it wont allow me to upload it to the ECU. 
Any ideas i feel like im :deadhorse

So I open jackal without the ostrich plugged in and it will prompt me to upload the previos ds2. As soon as i plug the ostrich to the computer it doesnt prompt me.
If I open jackal without the ostrich and it prompts me then plug the ostrich in and hit ok it just gives the ! On the bottom right.
Im about to pull my fucking hair out.

And what does the visual log at the bottom right say after /!\ shows up?

reinstalled new updates for java. Deleted and reinstalled Jackal, along with the key. I dont have personal access to the email that it was sent to anymore....so I had her send it to my email. I downloaded the key and put it in the directory.  Jackal now says the key is invalid.  Am I not able to send the key and download it from the original email?

Could there be something wrong with the ostrich?
I backed up what i needed off my old computer from jackal, including the key that worked, onto an external hard drive.
I imported the key from the hard drive to the jackal on the new laptop,only for it to say invalid key.
So I decided to try it off the EHD. It shows up with the green thumbs up,but it doesnt prompt to load tune. And it has two wires not plugged into each other down bottom left.

Are you on windows 10 ?  I recently ran in this exact issue when reinstalling werewolf.  It seems the ftdi drivers in windows 10 don't seem to work properly with Jackal / Werewolf and simply running the ftdi driver installer downloadable here doesn't overwrite the drivers bundled with windows 10 as it detects the windows bundled drivers are newer.

Make sure to go into device manager and manually select the driver downloaded from here for both the usb serial port and usb serial converter components.

After doing this make sure the version is 2.8.24.0 or whatever you installed.  And the date should be something 2012, if the version date is 2016 then the windows 10 drivers are still being used.
