Unzip the CDM file to a known location ( a folder like my documents or something that you can remember where to find it )

UNPLUG your computer from the internet physically.... this is the most common mistake when trying to update drivers..... windows thinks it knows what the smarty is and chooses the wrong stuff.

Once unplugged, plug in the smarty to a USB port and let windows recognize it.

Once it starts the update drivers deal choose advanced and select driver from a list, NOW Go find that folder from above and it should be one of the only drivers in there.

follow the rest of the instructions, don't listen to any of the windows warnings..... Microsoft is like the Dodge dealer....

Once completed, you will need schooled on the EXE file and updater

Load the EXE file that was also downloaded. I would not have your smarty plugged in at that time. Once it is installed you need to download tunes / files and start saving them to a place you can find them.

I'd make a truck folder or something on your desktop.

Unzip the file and and remember where it is.

When all downloading and unzipping is complete.

Open up the SMarty EXE program

Plug in Smarty to USB cable

Got to the File menu in the Smarty EXE program > click on open file > browse to the UNZIPPED tuning file > double click it and then hit the SEND button and the file you chose should be written to the Smarty.

It takes some time, so get a few cold ones lined up.

Have fun and call me when you break some parts.... Just joking

I've been trying to install the driver since Nov. I just gave up! I like my Jr. but something really needs to be done about installing drivers. You would thing you could just get a disk or somthing. I'm not completely computer illiterate but come on :hateit:

my download saved as a *.7z file. Do I need to rename it to a *.smt file to get it to open?
