GT Packer Provides the easiest way to display, store, and manage images on your GU-TFT(GT-CP) module.
This tool provides a quick and easy way to evaluate our GU-TFT(GT-CP) module via USB or UART. This application allows you to display images on the GU-TFT(GT-CP) modules. Choose from either USB or UART to communicate with any of our GU-TFT(GT-CP) displays.
- Microsoft Windows 7/8 (32bit/64bit) with .NET framework 4.0 or 4.5
- Serial Communication Port (USB / UART)
- 4MB of Hard Drive space
- Unzip the downloaded file into a folder that you wish to keep your GT Packer. It is recommended to keep it in a new folder to avoid confusion with your existing files. You should now have the GT Packer execution file, WinUSB installer for Windows 7 and GT Packer quick start guide.
- The USB communication driver needs to be installed next. If you are using Windows 8.1/10, please skip forward to step 3. If you are using Window 7, please continue to the next step.
- Unzip WinUSBdriverForWin7.zip.
- Connect your GT-CP module to your PC via USB.
- If you have not installed WinUSB or a Noritake virtual COM port driver before, the driver installation will fail. When it does, go to your PC’s Device Manager.
- Right click on “GT800X480A-C903PA” and choose “Update Driver Software”.
- Click on “Browse my computer for driver software”.
- Click “Browse” and navigate to WinUSBdriverForWin7/winusbcompat.
- Click on “Next”.
- The driver should install and finish by saying that the “WinUSB Device” driver has been installed.
* WinUSB is already packaged with Windows 8.1/10 so only install it on Windows 7.
* If you don’t want to use WinUSB or if you encounter an error during installation, install our GU-TFT driver from this page.
- Connect your GU-TFT(GT-CP) module to your PC via USB.
- Launch the GTPackerXXXX.exe file. The main GT Packer window should appear.
- You can now use this tool to evaluate your Noritake GU-TFT(GT-CP).
