This software is used to control your camera through a PC by means of serial communication (*2).
With this software, almost all of the externally-programmable parameters of an FC-series camera can be operated.
This software can be used on the PC that Microsoft Windows XP or Windows 2000 is running on and the .NET Framework
(Version 2.0 or later) is installed on. (*3)(*4)
Some models do not support serial communication.
This software uses the RS-232C communication facility of the FC series, or the serial communication facility via the Camera Link (Camera Link)
If you are using the PC that the .NET Framework (Version 2.0 or later) is not installed on or an old version of the .NET Framework has been installed on, it is necessary to install the .NET Framework (Version 2.0 or later) afresh on your PC. The .NET Framework (Version 2.0 or later) can be downloaded from Microsoft’s official website free of charge.
For details, refer to the “FCTool Installation Procedure” attached separately.
It has been reported that the .NET Framework (Version 2.0 or later) cannot be installed normally on some PCs that Windows 2000 has been installed on.
