I have no idea how well the plugin will work on Vista or W7. Back when I was actively developing it all my testing was done on an XP machine. That being said, as long as the necessary dependencies are registered for com communications I see no reason why it wouldn't function.
As to a VB.NET version, significant changes will need to happen to the control class to work with .NET com port components versus the old school mscomm used in VB6.
Glad to hear it. If you do update this to .NET and the latest RR standards, please share with the community either in this thread or start your own. I'd love to see this project continue on I just haven't had the time in recent years.
I have a program I used to use for debugging that emulates an ELM OBD interface. You can use it in combination with a virtual com port program (like com0com) to test without actually having an OBD interface. I've attached the emulator to this post if you want to give it a try.
Has anyone had this issue when coming out of hibernation? It is a windows dialogue box that occasionally appears when Windows 7 resumes from hibernation.
I have tried searching through this thread, but no luck."Run-time error '8018':
Operation valid only when the port is open
I have worked on my .NET version and now i have a plugin that run well. The framework 3.5 is needed !
I don't have an OBD interface, so i use this very cool simulator OBDSim.
This thread explain how to use it !
