Installing the Desktop Version of "MTK Data Logger Control BT747"

IMPORTANT: BT747 is updated with a CERTIFICATE to comply with JAVA 7 (1.7.0_51) security.
(I bought a trusted certificate (provided by a trusted authority) for about $300.  Received it on Jan. 17, 2014.
Thank you (!) to the users that donated a bit (thanks!) to partially cover the cost of the certificate.
 If every person using BT747 would donate $1 the cost would be covered in about two weeks (luckyly for you, I did not wait to cover the cost).

JAVA 7 (1.7.0_51) now requires that BT747 is signed

IMPORTANT: JAVA 7 (1.7.0_51) now requires that BT747 is signed with a TRUSTED CERTIFICATE.
You can also lower the security level of JAVA 7 to 'medium'.


BT747 is signed since version 2.1 with a certificate.

To do so, I bought a trusted certificate (provided by a trusted authority) for about $300 (valid a few years).  Received it on Jan. 17, 2014.

Thank you (!) to the user that already contributed to help cover the certificate cost.

Windows Automatic Port finding feature in new Release

BT747 evolves constantly (2.X.*), but this evolution will impact most windows users in a positive way, and existing users must learn this information or it would remain hidden from them.

In the case where you are using USB to connect your passive tracking device to the computer, BT747 is now capable of finding the corresponding serial port itself.  You will still need to select the right connection speed though.
