Using BAE FTP uploader program

Initial Set Up

1.       Download 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.
3.       Double click on the file BioAppEng_Upload_V2.0.exe to run
4.       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.
 
5.       Run the LabVIEW file LVRTE2011f3std.exe
6.       You will get an initial message seen below.  Press OK and continue

7.       Unzip the file
8.       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 some time. 
9.       When the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine installation is complete you will need to do the same for the visa520runtime.exe file. 
10.   Once both have loaded and run their course you will need to restart your computer. 
11.   Now you can click on BioAppEng_Upload_V2.0.exe and run the program. 
12.   On your initial run you should receive the following message prompting you to enter your Track Name, please do so.


13.   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. 
14.   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.
15.   Allow the driver for the USB- Serial Controller to install.
16.   Once the driver is installed it should tell you what port it corresponds to.

17.  
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.
 
18.   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. 

19.   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. 
20.   Now you are ready for your initial test run. 
21.   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 guide. 
22.   Select the TDR tab
23.   Press “Connect to TDR”
24.   You may/should receive the following error.

25.   Be sure to allow access on both Private and Public networks. 
26.   Once you have allowed access through the firewall try to connect to the TDR again. 
27.   If the TDR has connected successfully you should see your current dataset in the scroll box. 
28.   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. 
29.   At this point you can also include any comments that will appear on the MQS alongside the data. 
30.   Once you have set the date, time and any comments you can press upload. 
31.   With luck you will see the message below

32.   If not please close the program and try again.  Sometimes the program itself will need a restart.
33.   If the problem persists please refer to the troubleshooting guide.
