PCAN-USB Pro and PCAN-USB on one computer, which driver?

Post by ckeydel » Fri 9. Nov 2012, 03:50

Subject says it. In your driver download section there is a PCAN-USB Pro package, but in the description it says "Only use this package with PCAN-USB Pro, do not use it with PCAN-USB."

What if I have both and want to be able to use both at different times, or even together? Which package is the right one to install, and can I expect any problems with the other device?

Thanks for any clarifications!

Hi Chris,

when you use PCAN-USB-Pro and PCAN-USB, it will be enough to select the PCAN-USB-Pro driver. With that driver setup the CAN drivers for the PCAN-USB will also be installed.

The information "use it only with PCAN-USB-Pro" is just to save ressources on your system, because you don´t need the LIN tools and drivers when you work with the PCAN-USB only.

best regards

Michael
