XaminerPC is a PC based
troubleshooting software tool providing you with a window into the
configuration of your Xeptors. By knowing how your Xeptors are
configured and what they are reading from the coins you will have the
information you need to troubleshoot coin acceptance problems. You may
unexpectedly find that someone has programmed the Xeptor for the wrong
coin set, or that some of your coins just aren't like the rest of your
coins, or that the Inhibit Logic or Credit Pulse Width are not set the
same as for the machines that are working. XaminerPC gives you all the
information you need to diagnose the real problem and quickly get to
the right solution. As this product evolves, simply click the Internet
Update button to upgrade to the latest version. If you prefer the hand
held Palm or Pocket PC computer platforms for portability in the
field, please see our Xaminer
version of this software.

What Are The System Requirements For Operation?
If your computer runs any version of MS Windows, you should have no
trouble running this application... famous last words. It doesn't take
much memory, disk space, screen size or "Pentassium" to make it
work... just a simple MS Windows computer that doesn't crash much will
be fine.☺ Note: If you have
a newer budgetary computer without a real serial port, then you will
have to get a USB to serial port adapter from a local electronics
retailer... but they are not all made equally. For example, we know
the Radio Shack adapter has worked on Win98 and WinME, but will give
you the "blue screen of death" on WinXP. However, the Belkin F5U109
adaptor, available at Office Depot and other retailers, is rated to
work with Win98 through WinXP and does so quite well.

unzip and display its contents directly as shown in the second

Either Windows or WinZip should open the zipped
file folder automatically and show three files. Double-click
the one called setup.exe
to start the
installation of the application software. Note, with some older
versions of WinZip you will have to first extract the files to
another folder (or drag and drop them to the desktop) to get
setup.exe to run when you double-click it.
Follow the instructions and suggestions of the installation
program as it progresses. You may encounter a warning about one of
the system files trying to over-write a newer version already on
your computer. The proper response is
to keep the
newer one already on your computer.
