    for manual  installation.
    From driver version 2_08_30, works with WIN 8 & 8.1, the automatic installation via
    Windows driver update.)
    For Windows 10, the drivers are automatically installed via Windows Update.
    For Android systems no driver are required..

Installation of FrameWork 2.0 (XP only)
1. Download FrameWork 2.0, here the Link
2. Run dotnetfx.exe and follow the instructions. 

Installing the Windows drivers:
Windows 7 and Vista users: MAKE SURE YOU ARE NOT connected to the internet. Disconnect any WIFI or Ethernet cable. Otherwise Windows will download the latest driver automatically, which may not be compatible with TuneECU (if your cable came with a CD of drivers..do NOT install them)
FTDI also offers the driver with an installation routine the points 2-9 of the manual installation not necessary
when using this version. Not for Win 8, select here the driver package for manual installation.
(From driver version 2_08_30, works with WIN 8 & 8.1, the automatic installation via Windows -
Just run the setup.exe of the FTDI-driver and then plug in the USB cable to a USB port. The previously
installed FTDI-driver are automatically assigned to the USB cable.
For Windows 10, the drivers are automatically installed via Windows Update.

1. Recommended FTDI CDM Drivers (D2XX) download here and extract the ZIP file.

2. Plug the cable into a USB port.

3. The PC will open the Found New Hardware Wizard to install the USB/Serial driver:

4. Choose “No, not this time” for the connection to Windows Update.

5. Click Next. You see this screen:


6. Under the checkbox for "Include this location in the search… ", select the path where you have downloaded
    and saved the drivers.

7. Click on “Next”

8. The USB driver is installed. Click Finish when complete.

9. Repeat the above steps for the serial driver.

Driver Installation of  USB/RS232 converter, required if your computer has 
no serial interface (RS232) has.
Use the drivers that came with the cable.

Drivers limitation for the USB-Tuneboy-cable (Windows System):     
The TuneBoy cable works only with the ancient FTDI driver from TuneBoy's own site.
For  WIN8/8.1 & WIN 10 unfortunately, the tuneboy driver is to install only with a trick.
For WIN8 / 8.1. See here.
With Windows 10 is similar.
The problem is the enforced driver signing in Windows8, Windows 8.1 & Windows 10.

The hardware id of TuneBoy cable is different vs. a generic/TuneECU FTDI cable.
So even though both cables have same chip, the TuneBoy cable needs the matching
driver from the TuneBoy site.

Restrictions on the use of the serial TuneBoy-cable (Windows & Android System):
The serial TuneBoy-cable can also be used with TuneECU, but is a USB-Serial-Adapter necessary,
which has a FTDI-chip-set. Good example is here the Digitus DA-70156 USB-Serial-Adapter.
