In early 2020 Bendix will be transitioning to a new, subscription-based ACom platform called Bendix® ACom® PRO™. This package will be available to the market in January 2020. Support for earlier generations of the valuable ACom tool – including versions 6.17 and 6.18, versions you may be using today – will eventually be discontinued in 2020 after a published transition period. You don’t need to take any action at this time….click to read more.

Client Update release 2.4.5 and Tech Tool release (2.7.30 and onward) cannot be installed at the same time.

If you have Client Update release 2.4.5 and a Tech Tool release available simultaneously in Client Update, make sure to only download and install one at a time. If they are installed at the same time, the installation of updates will not finish.

Support for Tech Tool 2.5 has ended. We encourage all end users running version 2.5 to update to the latest version. A new installation using 2.7 Tech Tool DVD or 2.7 USB Drive is needed to upgrade to the latest version. Please contact the Help Desk at 1-877-978-6586 with any questions.

Tip of the Month

Windows 7 support will end on January 14, 2020. After that, technical assistance and software updates from Windows Update that help protect your PC will no longer be available for the product. Microsoft strongly recommends that you move to Windows 10 sometime before January 2020 to avoid a situation where you need service or support that is no longer available. For more information please visit Microsoft website. For Tech Tool users who continues to use Windows 7 after support has ended, your PC will still work, but it will become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses because you will no longer receive software updates, including security updates, from Microsoft. Best effort support will be provided by IT Help Desk. For more information about new features and changes, please continue to visit our website or What’s new…and the Help file under the Help Menu within the Tech Tool Application.
