Updating the database with Sentenel software for BCD 536 HP

#1 Post by joekehoe » 24 Feb 2018 13:14

I purchased the above mentioned scanner in November 2017. I tried to upgrade the database and was unable to upgrade. It said the operation failed. No access. I deleted the program and reinstalled it with same results. I am not computer savvy and need assistance. Thank you
