Can ShopStream Connectoperate on a machine with PCLink for ETHOSor PCLink version 3.x installed?

 

ShopStream Connectsupercedes the PCLink for ETHOSand PCLink 3.x products and as such these products do not need

 

to co-exist. If you wish to install ShopStream Connect, it is recommended that you uninstall previous versions of these other

 

products first. However, please note that while PCLink for ETHOSmust be uninstalled prior to installing ShopStream Connect, this is not the case with PCLink 3.x, which may reside side-by-side with ShopStream Connect.

I

previously used PCLink 3.x to communicate with my MODIS Liberator tool, is this supported in ShopStream

Connect?

While PCLink 3.x used a wireless ethernet connection to communicate with MODIS Liberator, this mechanism proved difficult for some users. ShopStream Connectuses a simple and reliable USB connection to communicate with the Snap-on diagnostic tools. However, MODIS Liberator does not have an USB connection so you cannot communicate directly with MODIS Liberator using ShopStream Connect. However, there is an indirect approach that will work, which uses an USB card

reader as an intermediary. Please consult the ShopStream Connectdocumentation for more information on how this operates.

MODIS Liberator users with PCLink 3.x installed may, of course continue to use that application.

I

am a PCLink 3.x / PCLink for ETHOSuser, how can I access my old data files in ShopStream Connect?

By default, data files in PCLink 3.x and PCLink for ETHOSwere stored in the "C:\Fast-Track\My Data" folder. In ShopStream Connectversion 7.2.12.0, you can navigate to this directory in the tree on the left-hand side, and your files will be visible in the Data list. In ShopStream Connectupdated version 7.2.16.0, a shortcut has been added to the ShopStream data folder called "PCLink Data" which provides easier access to this folder.

Why do I need the .NET 2.0 Framework to be installed on my PC?

The ShopStream Connectapplication was developed using the latest available software components from Microsoft, and because of this it is necessary to have the Microsoft .NET 2.0 framework installed on your PC to run ShopStream Connect. Many other new applications will also require this framework, and it can be installed over previous versions (e.g. 1.0 and 1.1).

The ShopStream Connectinstallation automatically detects if this version of the framework is installed on your PC, and if not will request that you install it before it can proceed. The Microsoft .NET framework version 2.0 can be downloaded from the Microsoft download site here.

Further explanations and detail on the .NET Framework can be found here.
