License file upgrade: For this step, you will need an external USB CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drive

  • Setup the FieldFox and external USB CD-ROM/DVD-ROM as below image.
  • Connect the USB cable as suggested. There are 3 ended connectors on the cable, usually with 2 USB A (one for data and one for power) and 1 Mini B.
    NOTE 1: FieldFox's USB ports have very limited power to operate an external devices like USB CD-ROM/DVD-ROM. User can connect to another computer/laptop that is located in the secured environment, or have it connected to another available USB powered port.
    NOTE 2: depending on external USB CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drive manufacturer, it takes between 30 seconds to 2 minutes for the drive to load and ready.

  • Insert the disc into the external USB CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drive, then press:
    • System (7)
    • System Configuration
    • Options
    • Install Options

The instrument reads the license file(s) from the USB CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drive, validates the file(s), and installs the option(s). Generally, warnings or error messages may be ignored.

  • Disconnect the external USB CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drive from the FieldFox.
