Softing TDX: the latest diagnostic software automatically on the PC

Softing TDX Press Release

Haar near Munich, December 11, 2019 – The new release 2.3 of the repair shop tester Softing TDX is now available, featuring automated and centralized software updates. This saves time and considerably reduces the effort involved in maintenance.

Every time it is invoked, the new version of Softing's after-sales application independently checks in the background for the latest available version and, providing the user is in agreement, downloads it to the PC. This ensures that users with access to the Internet can always be sure they are using the latest version with any new functions without having to remember to update it themselves. This update not only applies to the software, but also for diagnostic content, such as repair instructions or diagnostic trees. The diagnostic content for end users in the field is updated centrally. The administrators of the application, usually vehicle or component manufacturers, can thus control the updates very easily. 

It is also possible to “roll back” to an older version of the project. This is particularly useful if, for example, a required function or diagnostic content is only available in a previous version.

Furthermore, managing role models and user access authorizations in the role and user database (RUDB) with Softing TDX.admin is even more intuitive in the new version. Improved tool tips facilitate navigation in the tool and support the administrator in the creation, assignment and management of user roles. Traceability has also been improved as the administrator is now automatically notified of any newly registered users.
