@ different adapters-nothing works

Post by M5Pilot » Sun Sep 29, 2019 1:15 pm

I haven't used forscan in a few years and decided to update the software and try using it. I have a windows laptop and downloaded the latest beta software and worked on this laptop before. The first bluetooth adapter I have, used to work before as I wrote forscan on it. It's a OBDLink MX BT rev 2.2/r4 and mfr. 2016.07.17. I plug it in and the blue light flashes. I select connect on my laptop, with bluetooth turned on, and then fs says scanning wifi then no connect.
Second one is an ELM 327 and it too won't connect. I bought fs lite for my iphone 8 and it too won't connect with either adapter.
Do I need a different adapter now?
Thanks, Bill
