TR-5 Parameter Interface

The TR-5 Parameter Interface allows you to program the TR-5, a data-acquisition receiver, with information necessary to acquire and filter incoming transmitted data. Since the TR-5 is equipped with only a small keypad and display, viewing and editing parameters with this interface is easier than entering parameters into the TR-5 directly. Furthermore, you can maintain a library of parameter files on your PC and select a parameter file to download to the TR-5.

Installation Instructions

From the root folder of the installation CD for TR-5, please run the file "setup.exe" to start the installation. Do NOT run the file "TR-5 Parameter Interface.msi" directly, since this may prevent the TR-5 Parameter Interface from running on Windows® Vista or Windows® 7 once the installation completes. When the installation wizard launches, please choose the option to install this application for "Anyone who uses this computer (all users)" and the "Typical" installation (these are the default selections). If you think you may have installed TR-5 with the wrong settings (or you ran the msi file directly instead of setup.exe), please uninstall the program and then follow these directions to install the program correctly. After completing the installation, attempt to run the TR-5 Parameter Interface. Please see the following instructions if you are running Windows® Vista or Windows® 7 and experience an error running the program.

Windows® Vista & Windows® 7 Users

You may need to select the Windows® option to "Run as administrator" to use the TR-5 Parameter Interface on Windows® Vista or Windows® 7. If your network administrator will not give you administrator privileges, you will need to modify settings to the Borland Database Engine (installed as part of TR-5 Parameter Interface). Please see the following document for more details:
