Using BAE FTP uploader program
Initial Set Up
BioAppEng_Upload_V2.0.exe, LVRTE2011f3std.exe and visa520runtime.exe
individually or get the entire package as a zip file.
First install the LVRTE2011f3std.exe
Then install the visa520runtime.exe
2. The program BioAppEng_Upload_V2.0.exe should be located in a convenient
location such as the desktop. If the program is located in another
location a shortcut on the desktop is useful.
Double click on the file
BioAppEng_Upload_V2.0.exe to run
Now you may get an error requiring the LabVIEW
Run-Time Engine, if you have used a previous version of our uploader this may
already be installed and you can skip to step 11.
Run the LabVIEW file LVRTE2011f3std.exe
You will get an initial message seen below. Press OK and continue
Unzip the file
Then allow the installer to run, click next
until you accept the agreement, and then continue clicking next until the
program begins installing. This can take
When the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine installation is
complete you will need to do the same for the visa520runtime.exe file.
Once both have loaded and run their course you
will need to restart your computer.
Now you can click on BioAppEng_Upload_V2.0.exe
and run the program.
On your initial run you should receive the
following message prompting you to enter your Track Name, please do so.
Next we need to set the ports for the correct
equipment. It is important that the same
port is used, or that the user knows how to identify which port the cable is
connected to, otherwise the data will not come through. The same port can be used for both the TDR
and Going Stick, just be sure that the user is informed. We strongly recommend color coding or
labeling the correct USB port.
Connect your TDR to your computer using
whichever USB port is most convenient for everyday use. We recommend marking this port in some way so
that the user knows which port to use consistently. Make sure the TDR is off.
Allow the driver for the USB- Serial Controller
Once the driver is installed it should tell you
what port it corresponds to.
If you do not see the window shown above there
is another way to figure out the port name.
Go to the start menu and open up the Computer. On the left hand file
stem section right click on computer and select manage.
You will now have the “Computer Management”
window open. On the left hand side
select “Device Manager” then in the main box open up the ports menu and you
will see the serial cable plugged into a specific port. In my case it is COM5.
Now that you have determined the correct USB
port, change the port listed on the Configuration tab of the uploader to the
one listed in your Device Manager.
Now you are ready for your initial test
On the uploader confirm that you are getting
internet access, the dot beside “Internet Access” should be light green. If it is not you will need to refer to the troubleshooting
Select the TDR tab
Press “Connect to TDR”
You may/should receive the following error.
Be sure to allow access on both Private and
Once you have allowed access through the
firewall try to connect to the TDR again.
If the TDR has connected successfully you should
see your current dataset in the scroll box.
At this point you will need to set the date and
time for the dataset, you can also chose “Set Time to Now” for ease.
At this point you can also include any comments
that will appear on the MQS alongside the data.
Once you have set the date, time and any
comments you can press upload.
With luck you will see the message below
If not please close the program and try
again. Sometimes the program itself will
need a restart.
If the problem persists please refer to the
