Why I cannot see ICOM on ISID?  

Symptom:

I have a problem with the ICOM Emulator. I can’t see the ICOM on ISID.

This is my setting.

cannot-see-icom-on-isid (1) cannot-see-icom-on-isid (2)

cannot-see-icom-on-isid (4) cannot-see-icom-on-isid (5) cannot-see-icom-on-isid (6) cannot-see-icom-on-isid (3)

Useful tips to i got and had a try:

Note:

You may be at risk to try this.

Check the black background command line-like window that appears when the icom mux is started. At the end of all of the text within this window, it should mention, “ROLLBACK starts rolling back.” If you see this, then the snap shot has successfully taken you ‘back to the future’ within the emulator’s VM to a state past the dongle check. If you do not see the “ROLLBACK…” text, then the snap shot has not been set correctly.

Also, you may want to check the following:
1. OBD.INI file(if using a K+D CAN cable) or ENET.INI(presumably, if using an ENET cable) in the EDIABAS folder’s BIN folder. Right click file > ‘Select a program from a list of installed programs’ > with Notepad selected and ‘Always use the selected program to open this kind of file’ NOT selected, click OK.
At the very top it will indicate “[OBD]” or “[ENET]”(presumably), and just below will indicate for example “Port=COM1”. This means that ‘COM1’ is the COM port that will be assigned to the cable.

2. Plug in the cable to your computer. The following refers to OBD/K+D CAN setups. In Device Manager > Ports(COM & LPT), Click the ‘+’ on the left to view its contents. If the FTDI driver for the cable is already installed, under Ports, there should be ‘USB Serial Port (COM#). The “#” should be the same number as that indicated at the top of the OBD.INI file viewed earlier, for example ‘COM1’. In other words, the COM port assignments of these two items should be matched in order for the hardware to connect with EDIABAS and allow communication with ISID.

You can edit the COM port assignment within the Properties of ‘USB Serial Port (COM#)’ or edit the Com port # of the top section’s 2nd line within OBD.INI file.

Hope this helps.
