To download this file, click on the title above. If your browser asks what you'd like to do with it, save the file either to your LAUD directory (for editing) or to a TEMP directory (to be later moved to the LAUD directory after editing). If your browser opens the file as text, that is ok, too - just save it (as a file) to your LAUD directory (where LAUD has been installed) under the name PINCFG.INI.
THE FILE IS PROVIDED UNDER THE NAME "PINCFG.INX" (because browsers can sometimes be uncooperative about files named "INI"...) .
IF YOUR BROWSER SAVES IT AS "PINCFG.INX", YOU SHOULD RENAME THE FILE TO: "PINCFG.INI" after saving to your LAUD or TEMP directory
We have received reports that the utility PINCFG.EXE is no longer included on the Fiji/Pinnacle driver install diskette (or is not reachable on this disk from DOS). For users who wish to run LAUD (versions 2 or 3) with a Fiji or Pinnacle from DOS (that is, without Windows), this utility is needed and can be downloaded here if necessary. (If you run LAUD from Windows only, you do not need to use this PINCFG.EXE utility, as your Fiji card will initialize from Windows when installed using the Turtle Beach setup disk - in that case, you can ignore this file).
To download the utility, click on the title above. When asked by your browser whether you wish to execute the file or save it, choose "save to disk" and then copy the file to your LAUD directory (usually on your C: drive).
This utility must be run (with a properly configured PINCFG.INI file, also in your LAUD directory) each time your computer is started when you wish to run LAUD in pure DOS. This can be accomplished by entering the following command to your DOS prompt: C:\LAUD\PINCFG /FC:\LAUD\PINCFG.INI
The simplest way to accomplish this is to include the line above in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file. Please see your LAUD manual for further instructions regarding memory range reservation and selection of port addresses. MSDOS includes a utility called "MSD.EXE" which can be executed from your DOS prompt to help identify available port addresses and memory ranges.
What does PINCFG.EXE do? This utility establishes communication between the FIJI or PINNACLE and your system so that LAUD can locate the card and the "Hurricane" data transfers can occur. After LAUD connects with the card, it then performs the next step of downloading its DSP code to the FIJI -- then the card is prepared for measurement system use until the computer is powered down or reset.
