Hi Voldenracing,

Please could you tell us what these error messages say? Or even better upload a screenshot of your Caltool window with the error messages showing.

Many thanks,

Rob

Hi Voldenracing,

Thanks for the upload.

So the issue here is that you are trying to convert the Desc profile file. What you should be converting is the Desc map that you load into the ECU.

There are a few things to know when moving over from Desc to Caltool. Where in Desc you needed profiles in order to open a map from an ECU, the Caltool equivalent is a Metafile. Therefore for the converter to work you need the correct Caltool metafile to match the Desc map.

For example. Say I had a Desc map of code version 3-30. I would need to open up Caltool and import the V3-30 metafile (they also eed to be of the same map type, NA, Turbo, Turbo Mass, GDI etc) Once I have the correct metafile imported I can close Caltool and use the File Converter to convert my Desc map into the equivalent Caltool dataset.

Another way is to load the Desc map to the ECU, then connect with Caltool and extract the map / dataset. To do this also requires the matching Caltool metafile. This method is fine if it is just a few maps of the same code version you want to convert to Caltool format. But if you have multiple Desc maps you want to convert across multiple code levels then the file converter method is much more efficient as you don't have to re-load code into the ECU in order to extract Caltool datasets across different ode versions etc.

Many thanks
