Version information, bugs, updates, and fixes

There are currently no other special fixes required for the latest release – DYNO-MAX 2010 version 10.23 Service Pack #1. If you have an earlier version of DYNO-MAX 2010, please upgrade to the latest release – before troubleshooting or reporting any suspected issues!

Obtaining the DYNO-MAX 2010 upgrade

Is your dynamometer’s PC online? DYNO-MAX 2010 version 9.70 (or later) licensees under a current Priority Support Plan, and with an Internet connection on their dynamometer’s PC, may use DYNO-MAX’s “Help – Check Web for DYNO-MAX Updates…” menu selection. It automatically informs you of newer update availability!

What if your dynamometer’s PC is not hooked to the Internet? DYNO-MAX 2010 version 9.70 (or later) licensees under a current Priority Support Plan, but without an Internet connection, may follow these steps:

1) Manually download the “CD-2010.exe” installation file (see “download version…)” link below).
2) Copy that file to a USB thumb-drive (or CD).
3) Transfer that file to your DYNO-MAX equipped PC’s “desktop.”
4) Double-click that file and follow its installation instructions.

Click this “download version 10.23 SP #1 Upgrade CD files now” link (and then click Save) to begin downloading the Zipped installation file.

Tip: When asked, we suggest using your Windows Desktop for the “Save As” location of the “CD-2010.exe” zipped installation file – so you can find it easily

"CRT Not Initialized" Error Message in Windows XP

Windows Security Update KB2467174 began going out from Microsoft’s automatic Windows Update service in early April, 2011. After its installation, Windows-XP users will get a “CRT Not Initialized” error message when they try to launch DYNO-MAX 2010. Microsoft fixed this bug in a later update. The solution to repair damaged systems is to go into Windows Control Panel and use its Add/Remove Programs feature to remove “Security Update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package (KB2467174).

Bug-Fix for: "Check Web for DYNO-MAX Updates" feature

Earlier versions of DYNO-MAX (pre 10.00) may experience the following (specific) problem with DYNO-MAX’s “Check Web for DYNO-MAX Updates” feature: “It goes through all of the downloading process, properly restarts DYNO-MAX, but upon returning the version is NOT updated.”  If this is happening to you, download our fixed “TransferUpgrade.exe” (Zipped) program. A recent Microsoft update of your User Account Control settings prevents completion of automatic upgrading. Our new TransferUpgrade.exe file should be manually downloaded, unzipped, and then saved into your DYNO-MAX folder (e.g. “C:\Program Files\DYNO-MAX”) so automatic upgrading can complete. Contact Land & Sea Support if you need assistance!

64-Bit Windows-7 and Vista Information

64-bit DYNO-MAX 2010 began shipping in January, 2010. The current version (10.23Service Pack #1) release already includes our new DYNOmite 64-bit (and updated 32-bit) USB drivers – replacing the 2.0 versions. Current users, of versions 9.70 and later, may upgrade via DYNO-MAX’s “Help – Check Web for Updates…”  feature.

Tip: If you have a DYNO-MAX 2010 CD, version 10.00 or later, of downloaded the current DYNO-MAX 2010 version upgrade (from this support page) you already have the latest drivers. In that case, you do not need to download this driver-installation package!
