Vanquish Applications Now available for Windows and Macs

The Vanquish USB Tool and the Vanquish Boot Screen Editor are now available for Windows and Mac computers.

These applications allow you to change the Vanquish settings, update the firmware and make your own custom boot up screen that displays right on the Vanquish! The programs also allow you to save your settings and boot screens to your computer so you can share them with your friends!

These applications are available for free at paintballsolutions.com under the Vanquish Desktop Applications.
http://www.paintballsolutions.com/in.../about/empire/


Feel free to post your questions and comments about the applications here in this forum and I'm happy to respond!

5/4/15 - Known Bug Report - For firmware versions V200+ a message will pop us saying the "Your Software is not up to date". You should ignore this message. The latest firmware is always available on paintballsolutions.com. Check there to see if you have the latest version.

HOW TO - UPDATE YOUR FIRMWARE
People have asked for clarification on how to update their firmware so I am adding basic instructions

Basic steps on Windows to update Firmware

-Leave marker unplugged from computer
-Download PC App Installer from paintball solutions
-Download Firmware from paintball solutions
-UNZIP FIRMWARE and save in a known folder you can access
-Run PC app installer, let it do its thing
-Connect marker to PC (if Vanquish 1/1,5 battery need to be plugged in, if Vanquish 2 it doesn't matter)
-Allow windows to automatically install drivers before opening Vanquish USB Tool (This could take about 5 minutes) If auto install doesn't work please follow manual install instructions in the Vanquish PC Software User Guide located in the installation directory of the Vanquish PC Software.
-Once drivers are installed open Vanquish USB Tool App
-Click "Update Software"
-Browse to the location of the firmware you unzipped earlier and select the file for your marker (V1XX are for Vanquish 1/1.5, V2XX are for Vanquish 2's)
-Let the USB tool do it's thing. Should take about 30-60 seconds to finish the update.


Basic Steps on Mac to Update Firmware

-Leave marker unplugged from computer
-Download Mac App Installer from paintball solutions
-Download Firmware from paintball solutions
-UNZIP FIRMWARE and save in a known folder you can access
-Run USB driver installer and allow it to finish
-Drag and drop Vanquish USB Tool and Boot Screen Editor onto your hard drive. Usually people like to drop it in the Applications folder for easy access.
-Connect marker to PC (if Vanquish 1/1,5 battery need to be plugged in, if Vanquish 2 it doesn't matter)
-Open the Vanquish USB Tool
-Click Update Software
-Browse to the location of the firmware you unzipped earlier and select the file for your marker (V1XX are for Vanquish 1/1.5, V2XX are for Vanquish 2's)
-Allow the update to finish before unplugging the marker.

Attention Mac Users: There is a application update available now under the software section at paintballsolutions.com This update should allow for more straight forward firmware updating.

Attenion OSX Maverics users - it seems the new update to OSX maverics may have caused some issues with updating firmware on the Vanquish. All other operations are still working. There will be an update released sometime in the first quarter of 2014

Is the software compatible with Windows 8? I'm trying to get it working for a teammate that has Windows 8 on his laptop and he's having problems getting the software to work. I'm able to install the software just fine on Windows 7 at home and XP at work but he has his Vanquish so I can't do much else to verify it's an issue with Windows 8.

I haven't seen any issues with Windows. What kind of error is occurring. He can't install it?

Alright, messaged him for some clarification. He said the software installs but that his computer won't recognize the Vanquish. I don't think it's a software issue.

Yah sounds like user error. Just ask him to follow the directions that come with the software exactly.
