VT Firmware Update Instruction

This document describes, how to update the firmware on VT System modules.

 
Note 1:

If you are using a VT6000 Real-Time module:

  • Connect to the VT6000 module via Remote Desktop, and
  • Run the VT System Firmware Update on the VT6000 itself.

To update the latest firmware versions, you have to

  • Copy the latest firmware update files from your local computer (C:\ProgramData\Vector\CANoe\[version]\VTSystem\VTFirmwareUpdates) to the VT6000 module (\\[VT6000 IP-Address]\Tmp) and
  • Then refer to the directory on the VT6000 (D:\Tmp) in the VT System Firmware Updater:

    The VT System Firmware Updater is already installed in C:\Program Files\Vector VT System Firmware Updater
Note 2:

If you are using a RT Rack connected to the VT System:

  • Connect to the RT Rack via Remote Desktop, and
  • Run the VT System Firmware Update on the RT Rack itself.

To update the latest firmware versions, you have to

  • Copy the latest firmware update files from your local computer (C:\ProgramData\Vector\CANoe\[version]\VTSystem\VTFirmwareUpdates) to the RT Rack (\\[RT Rack IP-Address]\Tmp) and
  • Then refer to the directory on RT Rack (D:\Tmp) in the VT System Firmware Updater:

    On newer images the VT System Firmware Updater is already installed in C:\Program Files\Vector VT System Firmware Updater
    On older images the VT System Firmware Updater must be copied from your local computer to the RT Rack:
    Please copy the following files from the CANoe EXEC32 directory of your local computer to the RT Rack (e.g. to D:\Tmp):
    • Vector.VTSystem.FirmwareUpdateManager.dll
    • VTSEtherCATCom.dll
    • VTSFirmwareUpdater.exe
    • W32N55.DLL
    • W32N55.INI
