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! Important: Earlier versions of DYNO-MAX may experience a problem with DYNO-MAX’s “Check Web for DYNO-MAX Updates” feature. Click here for a fix.
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.

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).“
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 DYNO-MAX 2010 began shipping in January, 2010.

Current users, of versions 9.70 and later, may upgrade via DYNO-MAX’s “Help – Check Web for Updates…” feature. Alternatively, the 64-bit (and 32-bit) DYNOmite USB Drivers installer package may be downloaded separately by clicking this link.
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!
