FILE: Important! Please use INSTALL.EXE for installation of the software (if you want to install from diskettes) or unpack with -d : EXPRO1 -D and EXPRO2 -D
This version FOLLOWS version V8.40.11 . Version 1.50 is fundamental different from Version 8.40.11 in building and layout, so you must keep your old version 8.40 .
HINTS:This README.DOC contain hints for V1.50.
BUGS:If you find any bugs/problems, please let me know.
INFORMATION:The software cannot recognize an Expro-80 from an Expro-60. An Expro-80 will therefore be considered as an Expro-60 and as a result, those ICs which demand an adapter on Expro-60 but not on an Expro-80 (please see DEVICE.LST) cannot be programmed on an Expro-80 without adapter. You should therefore as a first choice use software V8.40 or earlier version and only use the new V1.50 if it contains an IC which is not included in V8.40.
And now you maybe ask why? Because this software is not made by Sunshine. Someone told me that Hi-Lo systems Universal programmer ALL-03(A) was nearly identical with the Expro-60. So I downloaded Hi-Lo's software for ALL-03 and found out that it was the same software as V1.40 I got from Sunshine back in 1996!!!
I have now updated the software with the new drivers and called the software V1.50 . I have also changed the menu from Sunshines to Hi-Lo's menu because I find it a lot better! Hi-Lo Systems has decided NOT to update the software anymore. This is the last version.
ADAPTER & GANG-ADAPTER: Do you need some special Adapter drivers which is not included in EXPRO1.EXE or EXPRO2.EXE.
