It's a few years since I installed MyStuff on my Toppy 5800, and it keeps telling me that the version that I have is out of date. In the meantime, I have become an OAP.

So I want to get an up-to-date version which I presume is V6.6.

But where are the clear instructions for updating? All I see is "download and run this or that". There is nothing to say if it runs on Windows 10 or a 64-bit operating system. Can't we have a very simple list of instructions that makes this an easy job please?

I would like to see something like this:

Download XXX software onto your computer. It runs on the following operating systems OK.

Download the latest version of Mystuff.

Connect the computer to your Topfield machine using a USB cable.

Run the installer program.

etc

Surely something like that should be a sticky at the head of this section of the forums. I'm not lazy, and have tried to work out what to do for nearly three hours this morning. I'm reasonably tech savvy, but this is all confusing me with too much information, and not enough clear instructions.

Thanks - but that is where a lot of the three hours went this morning. It is signposts to signposts. Threads of 34 pages are not simple instructions on how to do something. Confused

Select MyStuff Installer, then the link in the 1st post.

MyStuff 6.6 downloads section then has the Mystuff Installer which is a program you run on your pc with the toppy connected via usb.

OK - so far. I can give the following instructions:

1 Go to www.bobdsmystuff.co.uk

2 Click on 'Download Mystuff 6.6' at the top right of the page.

3 On the next page download the Mystuff 6.6 installer.

4 Unzip the down-loaded file.

5 From the same page, download the MyStuff manual.

----------------------------------------------------------------

From here, I am 'mystuffed'. In the manual it says that I must first download and install Topfield tools , but I have a 64 bit version of W10 on the laptop, and it says that I must use Antares. But when I click on the Antares link, there is nothing to download. So what do I do now?

You'll need the Z4T driver. See the instructions here:

http://forum.toppy.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=20995

http://forum.toppy.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=21067

The Win10 anniversary update has made it very complicated, but it's still doable.

There's a readme in the installer zip file....

Quote:
MyStuff Installer Instructions

Unzip, maintaining folder structure. Double click on 'setup.exe'. Follow on screen instructions.
Note you must have a working internet connection on the PC when running Installer.

So do I ignore the Toppy Tools/z4/Antares bit, and simply install MyStuff by following those instructions?

You need to install z4t first, as indicated in an earlier post (it's a bit tricky), and then follow the instructions.

If you don't understand what's involved, best wait for some one else to help, as I've never used the installer.

Which version of MyStuff are you currently using?

I've currently got v6.4, which works fine. It's just that it tells me that it is no longer supported. I'm wondering if it is worth the hassle of changing it.

I just copied the mystuff.tap when upgrading to 6.5, and again when upgrading to 6.6

If you can get the z4t driver installed, then Antares is easy to use.

It would be useful to post your details using the myinfo tap, which you should already have, but you'll need to get Antares working first.

Suggest in your case that you use the full installer - it also updates several other taps (and also adds my PruneEPG tap)

I will dig out an old PC running XP, and use Top Tools.

No idea what "Top Tools" is.

As said by others, just download the installer, unzip it and run Setup.exe.
The installer should do everything for you (say Yes to all questions to update firmware, MyStuff and other taps).

I suppose by "Top Tools", you may mean TopManager (or Topset?). Neither of these are required to use the installer.

Have you tried installing z4t on Win10? (not easy but others have done it). Once you get that to work, you don't need to pull out the XP system.
