Falcon, 3-1 VGA adapter and BlowUP software

Post by MegaSTEarian » Tue Oct 20, 2020 6:13 pm

I bought this adapter and gladly received it. Clear cut image on TFT monitor etc and seems to be an excellent product.
viewtopic.php?p=6938#p6938

I also bought a USBA2USBA cable to feed it with the 5V and downloaded BlowUP software referred in the same post, above. The switch is set to VGA as my monitors cannot do RGB, at least the one Falcon is connecting due to low frequency.

Problem is that when I try to install BlowUP, it asks for serial etc and then application closes without any bombs or anything in the screen. Goes from life to death immediately.

Is there anything I am doing wrong?

If this post was created in the wrong forum (eg should be in software) please move it :)

I assume there is a readme file with blowup on the serial number ? I don't remember having any issues installing it anyway.

The only linked in the page about the adapter doesn't seem to work. Closes with no warning or errors right after I pass the serial.


Is there any other link to get BlowUp software that is confirmed to work with the adapter?

That's the only lot of files here, wasn't any need for any other as those set worked fine for me and others.
