I am trying to establish communication with a 20 year old ECU fitted to a 45 year old van.
The software I have been recommended to use is this: https://www.lpgshop.co.uk/content/downloads/l … tware/LCSA1.rar
It is supposed to run on DOS.
When I run Setup, it gives the error in the title.
When the programme runs, it does not display properly and generally crashes without doing anything helpful.
Possibly EGAVGA.BGI might be a clue: it is in the programme folder, and appears to be graphics related.
On a positive note, the programme will try to connect to the ECU, and won't run at all if it fails, but it does (sort of) run when plugged into the ECU: that does suggest that something is working.
I have tried the Windows XP dos prompt, DOSBOX and FreeDOS, all with the same result.
I have not been able to get an MSDOS system working, but I am not convinced that that will help a great deal anyway.
There is various other, related software. I have tried various of them, and none of them show any sign of connection.
I have written to the manufacturer, but they do not seem keen to help.
