Hey Brian, not sure if you are around or if anyone else knows, but what is the registry change to get the software out of demo mode? I'd like to avoid dragging my desktop down two flights of stairs to the garage to plug into the car just so I can edit tunes with the luxury of multiple large monitors. 🙃Do not forget the line of code that needs to be modified in the Windows registry to get the software out of demo mode.
hahaha, I do remember when PT came out. I had a laptop (with a serial port) at the time, but I still dragged my desktop out to the garage...for the exact same reasons I want to now. Only the monitors now are way nicer than Mitsubishi Diamondtrons. I was in a single level house back then though, and somehow my PC now is way larger and weighs way more than back then.C'mon, I remember when PT came out before we all realized we'd need to get laptops, and dragging desktops out to the driveway was a way of life.
I forget the database trick, but you can also build (or maybe buy nowadays) an off-board cable that will mimic your car, and just plug in a PCM and 12v source with switched power (OBD plug, PCM blue plug, and the few necessary connections). This enables both initial registration and standalone tuning ability for a backup PCM, etc. (or not using a laptop, in this case). Just an option if nobody else has the solution off-hand.
I did not. Dave's comment spurred my memory that the reg hack is probably the one out there in the tuning dropbox (with the DBF file). But it doesn't seem to work on Windows10. Tried it on a few different machines. Tried writing a new reg file based on what it should look like in Windows10, but that didn't work either.Get it figured out?
