New PROG12Z install broke PROGRS08

  • Installed new prog12z.  When I ran prog12z for the first time it updated the firmware in my USB Multilink Universal.  Now progrs08 does not work with the USB Multilink Universal.  Error message is SystemsCould not contact P&E Hardware Interface.  Prog12z works fine.


  • Greetings,

    Make sure you download our latest resource CD and install it on your machine:

    Then use the firmware updater utility to see if it can detect your multilink. Then try changing the firmware to support RS08/HCS08/S12 devices. Once you successfully firmware update, try again on your PROG RS08 software. The latest firmware should be version 9.59.

    If you continue to have issues, go to our support page -> Support requests and create a ticket about this issue. I want you to zip up your PROG RS08 software into a .zip file and post it into your reply. Then we will attempt to replicate the problem and solve this issue.

  • Greetings,

    Any progress on this?

  • I switched from WinIDE to Code Warrior.  The programming software in Code Warrior works.

  • Greetings,

    I am glad you were able to find a workaround, but it does not tell me if you were able to resolve the problem with PROGRS08.

    You should look into also changing the drivers. When installing the new PROG12Z software it may have installed new USB drivers that overwrote the older drivers making a problem for PROGRS08. If your software for PROGRS08 is old (more than 8 years) then it is possible that the software requires you to use older drivers 9 for the USB for the software to work. But for PROG12Z to work, you may need newer drivers version 12.

    Drivers 12:
