Loading and using Techstream

Recommended Posts

Hi pro's 

Thought I'd start up a topic solely on the techstream system.

I'm yet to try loading it up on our family laptop, admittedly a bit sceptical regarding its performance and reliability etc

However, does anybody have a step by step guide as to how to use it?

Or even general comments on how it has helped them out in the past etc?

It would make interesting reading for many im sure.

Cheers

Cheers...

I'm trying to get my hear around this, okay so I've put in the c.d that came with the cable, and I'm presented with 2 options on screen; see pics...

If I select the first file, I get a list of other options...

Where do I go from here?

Hi

If anybody could let me know which version I should select from the 2 on the list in the above list would be a great start please,

Techstream 14.20.019

And

Techstream V13.00.022

Going via a YouTube video, 

I assume I copy and paste the two files...

Mini vci driver for toyota

And

Techstream gts 14.20.019 ndsi

And then follow the prompts...am I on the right tracks?

I have it on a 12 year old Compaq cq561 with W7.  It works perfectly. 

Thats really really helpful Stivino, cheers for that. 

I spent 4hrs last night in bed researching laptop options to buy. You can tell I'm determined to get this techstream up and running. Been wanting it for years! 

I eventually moved away from lenovo thinkpads, they look the part but finding one in good con and at a decent price is a torture!

Decided on a Acer Aspire one Windows 7 32 bit at just under 50.00...it doesn't have a disk drive I admit but if I copy the files from the cd disk on to a USB flash I assume it'll work the same...and then go from there!

My W7 is 64 bit.  I don't know if that matters.

Acer is not a bad laptop maker, but Lenovo is fa superior, formerly called IBM which was the commercial defacto pc/laptop. Lenovo have continued producing quality stuff.
