Installing the Software Updater.

 

The Updater is available as a Zip file which contains various elements of the Updater Tool.  To unzip and save the updater, please carry out the following actions.

• Download the AIS950 Zip File from the software update page here

• Extract all files

• Select a location to save the Updater

• Click finish.

 

Once the Updater has been saved, double click the ZIP file you have downloaded from its saved location (Usually your Downloads folder) and then double click on the “Updater.bat” file. This will then launch the Updater, ready for you to begin the Program Update process. Do not click on the “vxboot.exe” file as this will not start the updater.

 

Applying the Software Updater to the Unit.

 

Kit requirements:
