After receiving Foxwell NT644 Pro from any of the authorized resellers, you are allowed to update the newest software, but before that you are supposed to create an foxwell account and then register your NT644 PRO with the serial number. Following parts are about how to register and update with tips.
Foxwell NT644 Pro tool comes with free software updates for 18 months from the date of purchase.
To apply software updates to the tool you will need a Windows PC/Laptop and an SD Card Reader.
Registration part 1 – Create an account
You firstly need to create an account with Foxwell and register your NT644 Pro.
This can be done through the FoxScanner update software, which can be downloaded for free from www.foxwelltech.com.
Just select your NT644 Pro tool from the list and follow the instructions to download the latest version of FoxScanner.
The file downloaded will be a compressed zip file. Open the file and run the installer inside it.
Please note: The installer will sometimes try to install FoxScanner to the D:\ drive. In most cases you will need to change this to C:\
Once installed, open the FoxScanner software.
Click the Register button and complete the registration page to create your Foxwell account.
Registration part 2 – Add NT644 Pro to the account
To register the tool, you will need the tool’s Serial Number and ‘Register Password’.
You can find these on the tool by selecting Setup > About.
When logged into FoxScanner, click the ‘Register Products’ icon.
On the ‘S/N Registration’ tab, put a tick in the box marked ‘001’ then select your tool in the Part Number column.
Enter the product’s serial number and password, and then click Submit.
A confirmation box should be shown confirming successful registration.
Update NT644 Pro
Now close the FoxScanner software, remove the SD card from NT644 Pro (making sure the tool is turned off first!) and connect it to the PC via an SD card reader.
Please note: Due to the expanding coverage of the NT644 pro, to install all available updates you will need a Kingston or Sandisk branded 16GB SD Card.
Tools supplied before October 2016 will have been supplied with a 4GB or 8GB card.
So long as you are still within your 18 month update period you can run the update procedure listed below with a new, blank Kingston or Sandisk 16GB card.
We recommend re-formatting new 16GB SD cards to the FAT32 file system, with an “Allocation unit size” of 4096 bytes before applying the software updates.
Once Windows has detected the SD card, run the FoxScanner software and login again. click the ‘My Updates’ button.
After a few seconds, a list of the available software updates will appear.
Ensure that the correct serial number is displayed in the drop-down list.
Click the Update button to download and install available updates.
Please note: the update process can take a long time. If your NT644 Pro has not been updated recently, it may take a few hours for the update process to complete. Once the update has completed, don’t forget to ‘safely remove’ the SD card in Windows before unplugging it, to avoid the possibility of data corruption.
Once your initial 18 months of free updates expire, the tool will continue to work – it will not ‘time out’ – but you will no longer be able to access the update server.
Should you wish to continue updating your tool, you will need to purchase the update package, which will give you a further 18 months of access to the update servers.
