I got a distributable version made up today. It has a couple rough edges, but is almost completely functional. If you have the RTE installed you can open it up and run it, but without the correct adapter and a vehicle there isn't a whole lot to do. Just figured out how to upload files using the advanced post option, see attached.
Only the large icon works, small one and the Windows tray icon are blank. Not tied to the name Proto-CAN either.
Autoconnect doesn't work, so click the run arrow, then click on the "Connect" button during the countup to begin receiving messages.
Somewhere along the way the periodic TX functions stopped working, need a little bit of research why. The single TX function still works though.
Occasionally errant MIDs show up, the sorting algorithm from the com. port might need some tweaking.
Early message entries are occasionally assigned incorrect time stamps. Irritating, but should be a straight forward fix.
I'll try to get some vehicle recordings made soon and post them. I also need to get my University webspace set up so I can host the files. A spreadsheet viewer will also be available soon which will allow some sorting abilities for recordings. One of our undergraduate classes will be using the software for a lab assignment over the next couple weeks, I may have a pile of recordings and some free research courtesy of the academic process. Ideally we can get a collection of recordings (organized and labeled appropriately) as well as a knowledge base of deciphered values for various models and manufacturers.
Sweet deal, I'm pretty excited. I've had this project on the back burner for awhile, so to finally have it gaining inertia is fun.
Addendum: Pre-2008 vehicle? Check this list, it might still be CANbus equipped.
