Part Number: ADS1146EVM-PDK
I tried connecting on 4 different computers! 1 XP, 2 Win 7, 1 Win 10. Also the software I downloaded did not have the USB driver and was problem number 1. The USB drive is working now. Had to go to the TI website to download the driver. Looks fine in the Device Manager. But still will not connect to ADCPro.

I apologize for the issues and appreciate your diligence in working through the problem.
Have you downloaded the ADCPro device plugin as well?

You can also re-download ADCPro from this location.

In reply to Alexander Smith:
Yes! I downloaded this file! Last week! All of the software loaded fine! The user guide says that a CD is included in the kit but no CD. I think it had files that I needed.
In reply to Carl Skipper:
TI quit shipping CDs some number of years ago and all software components are available by download. Unfortunately the user's guide was not updated to reflect this change. The files you need are installed when the ADCPro setup and the ADS1146EVM-PDK setup are executed. Windows 10 would require a separate driver install for the TUSB3410 device on the MMB3. ADCPro should be installed first.
Did you install with administrator rights? This is required or the installation will not be completely successfully.
In reply to Bob Benjamin:
Yes! I did use Admin rights. I plan to reinstall the software on a Win 7 computer.
What did the errors mean?
The error messages show information that appears that the PDK portion of the install had issues and may not have installed correctly.
I loaded the software as Admin on a Win XP desktop that I have not loaded it before. A window pulls up with the same errors. Loaded ADCPro first then the kit files!
What should be on the LCD when connected? The joy stick responds and changes what is on the LCD.
I apologize for the issues you are experiencing, typically issues with installation are a result of something seemingly small (admin rights, wrong OS, incorrect installation order, etc) and a lot of the time the best this to do is to un-install everything and try again.
Just double-checking that you are following the steps in this order:
Step 1. Install the ADCPro software (if not already installed) on a PC.
Step 2. Install the ADS1246EVM-PDK EVM plug-in software.
Step 3. Complete the USB driver installation process.
Step 4. Set up the ADS1246EVM-PDK.
Step 5. Connect the ADS1246EVM-PDK to the computer with a USB cable.
Step 6. Run the ADCPro software.
Installing out of order and/or having the board plugged in before finishing installation can lead to issues. Additionally, when using the board in the PDK configuration a few jumpers must change positions (Step 4) before being connected to the PC (Step 5):
On the MMB3: Set the switches on the MMB3 as described below, as shown in Figure 6. • Set switch SW4 to the right. • Set the DAC switch (SW5) to the OUT position (to the right).
On the ADS1246EVM-PDK: remove any shorting blocks on jumper J6, and make sure J2 has a jumper between pins 1 and 2 (the IO position). This configuration grounds the CLK input to the ADS1246 and ensures that the internal oscillator starts up.
I will do it step by step! Do I need to uninstall the software for this? Also just for a test I ran ADCPro without plugging in the board and got the very same errors! I guess the software is just not seeing the board!
Typically we reccomend un-installing everything and re-installing everything just to start from a clean slate.
ADCPro should initially look like this when it starts:
And you do not need to have the board plugged in to initiate the load of the plugin. You should see this screen if you attempt to load the plugin without the board connected:
