    I have seen this asked several times but can’t find any definite answer. Will my truck throw any codes if I install the new dump tubes?

    If they don’t have an adapter to pull the 02 sensor out to read less flow it’s going to throw a code. Or there would be a selection within the tune system to eliminate the sensor. These are essentially removing the Cat which in turn would always throw a code on a factory set up. Even if it didn’t throw a code of the inspection shop looks under the hood or under the truck they are going to reject it as soon as they see aftermarket down pipes with no converter.

    I'm sure this info has already been shared somewhere on pages 1124 - 1756, but couldn't find it in a search.

    Didn't want to run the flash manager on my work laptop, so instead of picking up a dedicated laptop on craigslist (will probably still do this), I'm trying to get flash manager up and running on my wife's old windows 7 (64bit) laptop.

    After installing the flash manager, I got an error when trying to start up.

    Error was super useful microsoft error, something like "Application cannot start because blah blah code 0xc000007b"

    Turns out I needed to update the visual c++ packages on this machine.
    Took me a while to figure this one out, because the flash manager install looks like it installs a c++ package, which I assumed was a dependency.

    I downloaded and installed them from here, and that apparently fixed the problem without a reboot.
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads


    Hope that helps anyone who runs across the same problem.
    Is there a different thousand page thread I should have posted this in?

    I vaguely recall seeing something about a handheld tuner in the works?? Was this true?

    Of course, now that I get to the registration procedure, it sure seems like getting a newer laptop seems like a better solution.

    I get that proprietary code must be encrypted and secured, but man, just getting this thing setup is a process, and then it's not portable between laptops?
    No license key that can be activated on multiple laptops, even if it's tied to a single VIN?

    Sorry, that's pretty weak sauce. Hope you guys come up with a more practical solution in the future.

    Practical how? How many laptops do you need to have it on. The rest of us do just fine using 1 laptop. If you need to change to a new laptop, Mat will send you a new reg key (only a certain amount of times).

    Sorry, but this is a piece of cake IMHO. I got a new computer and got a REG file for it quickly.

    In a market where mods are replicated shamelessly, it makes all the sense in the world and is pretty invisible after the first go around.

    So ....

    My work laptop is a no-go because of corporate anti-virus issues. My desktop is a no-go, because it's a desktop.

    My wife's laptop is an old windows 7 laptop. It will probably end up working, but I don't want to depend on it long term.
    Yes, I will buy a new laptop and be happy, I was just hoping to put it off a bit.

    Again, no big deal, but it delays getting the tune on the truck, so there's that...

    I will be keeping a laptop in the truck for a while, because I've read enough of this thread to see that some issues do pop up, and Murphy's law states that will happen to me in the Alvord desert.
    I'd like that laptop to be more dependable than my wife's old one. (Battery holds a charge for 10min)

    All that up to this point, is entirely solve-able, and I don't really have any issues with that.
    I need a new laptop, I get it, it's fine.


    My main beef ( or concern, or feedback), is the registration/activation process.
    I can't think of any software I use that has this type of registration and licensing process.

    Set it up halfway, send an "EMAIL?!?!?" with some codes, and receive an activation key 1-3 business days later.
    Maybe it's much faster than that, I'm just going by the instructions in PDF file.


    What if you run into an issue and you need to re-flash, or pull codes, or anything in a hurry, but the 1 laptop you have registered happens to be unavailable where you are?

    You can't borrow your buddy's laptop for a day just to get back up and running.

    I get that OV needs to make sure that tunes aren't shared/pirated, but it's 2019. Seems like this is the sort of software problem that has been solved already.

    Maybe there is some logical reason it must be this way.

    Sorry if I sound harsh, but i'm pretty excited to get this tune in.

    You are making a bit much about it. Use the Win7 machine until you upgrade. If needed, plug in to an extension cord or the bed outlet. I was in the same boat with our old laptop from 2009 that takes 10min+ to fully boot and launch Flash Manager. I'm stoked with the new, smaller machine. If I go on a trip, you bet that it will come along for other reasons.

    I have used plenty of software that locks to computers (dongles, NIC MAC address, and others). It is the way of software registration these days. Yes, there are more invisible means, but do you want to pay another $100 for more elegant licensing? Not me.

    I get what you are saying, but automated licensing schemes that are used by other software vendors are backed up by a ton of $$$$ in software development and support. Mat is doing this basically all the software development himself with another developer doing the flash software. I do use software that have some crazy licensing schemes/restrictions (ePlan, GE Proficy, Allen Bradley, Siemens, etc.). In the grand scheme of things, if you have a dedicated laptop, jumping through the hoops once isn't that bad. I personally prefer that Mat spend his efforts tuning than developing a more streamlined licensing method.

    Since we are on the topic of laptops for the tune, I am thinking about buying a new one to get off my work Mac.

    I am a dongle guy (1st gen of OVTune)
    Any recommendations/isights on these? Think I will need a USB splitter/converter?

    I am looking at these for the price and for the fact I will ONLY use it for the tune:

    Edit: Doh! I linked up a Chromebook.

    I'd say that any of those options would be great?

    I emailed y'all about running your tune with 5.29s and your response was that it works perfectly and there are no issues.
    I then had 2 people in the next 5 days message me on instagram, asking if I was running 5.29s with OVtune...
    They expressed issues with a "Speed governor" and shared that the OV team is aware of this.


    Can you provide some clarification here?

    I'm still partial to the Lenovo T430 or T420 linked below. Those Celeron processors are painfully slow and with only 2g of ram you're gonna have a bad time. They will probably work, but it wont be fun. 32Gb SSD is also going to be tight on space to keep windows up to date.
