Since this is a beta release of a major, long-term project, issues or problems are expected. We had very few problems with the first release supporting the 9x7 models, but there may be new problems introduced for 9x6 models. Please contact technical support if you experience any issues with version 6.

Version 6 is only compatible with our second generation diagnostic interface cables. If you purchased your kit after February 2008, then it is a second generation kit.
If you aren't sure, check this list:
  • The cables with a box in the middle of the wire are first generation cables and not compatible.
  • Cables with the electronics in the connector can be either first or second generation.
    • If the cable has the light on the side that reads "Durametric," then it is a second generation interface cable and it is compatible.
    • If the cable has the light on the side that reads "Enthusiast" or "Professional," then it is a first generation interface cable and not compatible.
  • Customers with first generation interfaces can upgrade to the second generation interface for $150 USD.
  • For more information about why we are not supporting the first generation interfaces and details about upgrades, please see our Upgrade FAQ

Durametric version 5 and version 6 can be installed at the same time on the same computer.
