4 Ways to
Protect Your Remote Controlled Start Gate Investment
1. Check your computer in All
Programs to determine if LINESETUP2.exe is installed. If it is, delete
it immediately and replace it with SAFESETUP.exe which you may download
2. Remember that a program's
name is only a name. It is what the program does that is important. Smartline
continues to distribute the malware version LINESETUP2.exe. BestTrack
has recently been distributing a program named LINESETUP4.exe, which
they claim cures the problem. However, the situation is still unstable. Test
your software with your SCI. If the red light goes on as soon as you start the
program, discard that software and obtain SAFESETUP.exe by download HERE.
3. Disconnect the power
(or the SCI) from your solenoid or light tree when communicating with your finish
line through the Set Up Program.
4. Do not use the Etek
Timer Set Up Program at all. Most Champ and Smartline owners never use
it. All useful parameters can be adjusted in Derby Management programs.
In any case, pay
attention to the RED light on the SCI and the "thump-thump" of your
start gate. Do not allow the solenoid to activate continuously. The kids grow
up, and as personnel changes in your organization, make sure you pass this information
along to those who operate your Pinewood equipment.
