How to connect to TEMS Investigation 13.1 using HTC smartphone?

To collect WCMDA or LTE signal logs you could use a scanner or data cards. There is another way to do that: using smartphone. It is easy and feature-filled.

Firstly, we have these tools for this work:

  • TEMS Investigation 13.1 on Windows 7
  • HTC Vivid (PH39100)
  • USB cable

I will tell you how you can do that step by step. Please read whole article before practising that.

Here we go:

  1. Plug in USB cable to the computer and HTC.
  2. On HTC, open “HTC SSD Test“. You must enable these features on HTC:
    • Control Diag Port
    • Control Modem
    • Control RmNet

  3. Open “Device Manager“. Did you see these HTC drivers? If you did, continue with Step 3. If you didn’t, try unplug/plug, restart, reinstall drivers etc. It is a regular driver installation problem (If your manufacturer gives you special drivers, don’t forget to use them). I suggest that a program for this work: USBDeview. You can easily install/uninstall your USB devices with using that program.
    • HTC USB Modem
    • HTC Ethernet Adapter – 9k #2
    • HTC Diagnostic Interface – 9K (COMx)
    • HTC Diagnostic Interface (COMy)

  4. Open “TEMS Investigation 13.1“. Create a new workspace or open a previous workspace.
  5. Probably It will not recognize HTC automatically. If It happens, don’t worry. You can still do that. Just you need to create a manual configuration. Click to lovely little “Start Manual UE Config” button. Then create a manual configuration as It has been shown below. You should choose device type and ports settings carefully. Read your device’s documentation for that.

How to format Windows on a computer which has two harddisks?

Formatting Windows is generally easy because most computers have only one harddisk. If you try to format on the computer  which has two harddisks, you might experience an error like this:

Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. See the Setup log files for more information.

To manage this problem, you should unplug one of your harddisks. Probably one of your harddisks is SSD. You should unplug that. After you install Windows, you can plug in it again.

Understanding offline files

If you would like to use files where are at network share, you should be connected to access these files. If you aren’t connected/online, you cannot access your files. Actually, You couldn’t… Now, you can!

Using offline files gives you ability to connect your files at network share when you are offline. To activate this feature in Windows 7, right-click the file or folder, and then click “Always Available Online“. That’s all!

By the way, you cannot use that feature in Windows 7 Starter or Home Premium. You need to Professional or Ultimate. To see Windows versions comparison table, click here.
