How to install HiCOM software for Hyundai& Kia on Microsoft Win XP and Win 7?
1. Insert HiCOM installation CD (SECONS) to your CD-ROM drive
2. Run installation file HiComSetup.exe
3. Choose language for the installer
HiCOM drivers are automatically updated during the HiCOM installation. When prompted to install “unsigned” drivers, click on “Install this driver software anyway” (Microsoft® Windows® 7) or “Continue Anyway” (Microsoft® Windows® XP).
Microsoft Windows will automatically install drivers when you plug-in the HiCOM to USB port. Driver installation isn’t required for operation on GNU/Linux system.
How to install Hyundai and Kia HiCOM software on Win 8 O/S?
In case of problem with installing drivers on Windows 8, please follow these steps:
1. Press Windows Key + R
2. In the window that appears, type: “shutdown.exe /r /o /f /t 00”
3. Press “OK” button
4. The System will restart to a “Choose an option” screen
5. Select “Troubleshoot” from “Choose an option” screen
6. Select “Advanced options” from “Troubleshoot” screen
7. Select “Windows Startup Settings” from “Advanced options” screen
8. Click on “Restart” button
9. System will restart to “Advanced Boot Options” screen
10. Select “Disable Driver Signature Enforcement” (press number on keyboard for option shown on screen)
11. Once the system starts, install the diagnostic interface drivers as you would on Windows 7
NOTE: Windows Vista & 7 required signed all .sys files (we use usbser.sys shipped by Microsoft with valid digital signature). Final version of Windows 8 requires also signed .inf file (which is not in our case). The above procedure helps to override unsigned .inf file. Once driver is installed, the program will work properly.
How to connect HiCOM USB interface with vehicle?
1. Connect the HiCOM interface to your computer. LED indicator should start blinking.
2. Connect HiCOM to OBD-II connector in the vehicle. If you cannot find location of the OBD-II connector, you can use HiCOM location image database, available under OBD-II Connector location from main menu:
3. Set-up HiCOM application
4. Select Settings from HiCOM main menu and configure HiCOM interface port. If no ports are shown, click Refresh button. Then choose appropriate port and click on Test Interface to make sure everything is OK. Then you should see updated interface information. Now click on Apply changes or Save changes button to save changes and return to main menu
Now your computer is ready to connect to control units. In main menu, you can use either direct control unit selection (by clicking on Select Control unit button), or perform Auto-scan, which will list all control units present in the vehicle. Before you get to choosing the control units, you must enter exact vehicle model. Year and engine type must be selected, otherwise diagnosis may fail. We recommend selecting car based on VIN.
