jackal will not log
« on: August 03, 2013, 02:58:44 PM »
So before my motor went i had jackal working just fine and logging!  Now with the 2.3 i can connect to jackal but i cannot log?  it will scan and only get two ports com3 and com4.  Any Suggestions??  I used/am using a link v3 cable that i know works for link.  I also swapped jackal onto another computer because i thought it was my usb ports.  Im also using Windows 7 on both.

Absolute nothing, at Least as far as I know. My laptop has been with the car for about as long. When I brought it home it had a couple of updates for windows and one for jackal. But that's it. I'm really stumped.
I don't know why it will read the DTC's but not log. Today when I tried again it came up with com7. I know my log works uses com3 and I'm not sure about ostrich.  When I open up my devices and look at the USB drivers there is one that says unregonized program/driver. And all the others are root drivers. It says looking for driver updates for the unregonized one but never comes up with anything.
As I stated I even tried another laptop to no avail.
I would like to log this bad boy! I have six miles on the motor and it spits/hesitates low mid throttle and ideas?

Best bet would be to reinstall the ftdi drivers to get that unrecognized device fixed

Update: I downloaded the FTDI drivers, both the D2xx and VPC drivers from the windows 7 (x86) selection.  It still didn't work.  So I went to my device manager and turned off all "extra" usb roots, not working. 
When I downloaded the FTDI drivers it looks like the downloaded to a zip file and I also didn't notice them on my devices.  Do I need to unzip the files for them to work?
I am going to check my car connections after work to make sure it is working. 
Also side note I have teamviewer on my laptop with internet access if someone is willing to sit down and maybe help me out?  I'm no expert lol but i'm not stupid i'm just really really stumped!

I downloaded the drivers. Instead of hitting poll and nothing happening it says jssc.SerialPortExpection: Port Name - COM7:Method name - openPort(): Exection type - Port busy.

Com Ports 6 and 7 come up when I connect ostrich and jackal under my devices but when I hit poll thats what comes up.

Some software is open then.

Tuner Pro and palm One software lock the ports.

I don't have tuner pro but i did have mmcd for my palm data logger.  How can I disable the ports? Ill try to delete the software and see if that works. I'm going to test my diagnostic port tonight

Well Hak I tested my diagnostic port. And I have continuity to ground with pin 12. But my pins 1 and 10 are connected and this is true at the ECU side also. According to ECM link that shouldn't be true. When they r connected I get intermittent beeps.  Any ideas on why they would be linked when they shouldn't be? Also pins 1 and 10 are NOT connected to ground.

Another update; I switched in my brothers ECU with link and I was able to connect to it same cable & laptop.  I deleted ECM tuning from my laptop still nothing. Checked my ECU it looks good.

Does jackal continuously show the eula?
Does it ask for administrator privileges?
Have you disabled uac?

To answer your second question it does ask to make changes the the computer and I can connect to ostrich.  When I plug in the cable the drivers to come up as ftdi drivers for both coms.
