TECHNICAL NOTE
PROCEDURE TO FLASH UPGRADE HI1756-FC MODULES
Prior to starting the upgrade, insure you do a “SAVE TO NONVOLATILE”. Tests have shown that the upgrade will not change the nonvolatile memory, but during the upgrade the module does get reset and all
values will return to previously saved values. You should not need to
reconfigure the module after upgrade, but it is advisable to verify the correct
calibration of the scale before resuming operation.
When using Control Flash to upgrade software from a third party source, you may need
to make a change to allow the Control Flash program to find your new software files.
Below are instructions to make the change to allow this. Once you are done upgrading
the third party module, you can change it back to original settings.
Control Flash, using a local NVS file.
Go to Start: RUN; Enter REGEDIT and click on OK.
Use REGEDIT to create a String variable in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
>SOFTWARE >ControlFlashFirmwareUpgradeKit >ControlFlash >Current Version”
Call the string "InternalMode" and Set its value to 1. (as shown in image below)
NOTE: Sometimes the key "Current Version" already exists; sometimes you have to
create that key also.

Once you have made this change, start your Control Flash program in the normal manner.
After it starts, you will be prompted for the file location to use. Use the browse button to
then find and select the NVS file for the Hardy module in the location where you copied
it. Complete the upgrade in the normal manner.
Once you have completed the upgrade, change the value of "InternalMode" parameter
changed above, back to 0. NOTE: If you had to create this string, you do not need to
delete it again, just set the value to zero.
