RTL1090imu.exe will not install

Post by claude2 » Sun Aug 18, 2019 4:35 pm

Hello,
I am trying to install RTL1090 and get error message - an internet connection must be present, but was not found.
I have searched for help to this problem and found a post from 2016 (attached) but do not know how to do what is suggested. Could you please expand your answer to enable me to install this program.

Where are you downloading rtl1090imu from?

It's possible that the rtl1090 website and project are recently dead as I cannot load their website anymore, it just redirects to jetvision. If their website and servers are down, it won't download.

Most people are using dump1090 https://github.com/MalcolmRobb/dump1090 or modesdeco http://xdeco.org/?page_id=39 these days.

Thanks for replying.
As I have been fighting this problem for weeks now and getting not very far, I forget where I downloaded RTL1090imu. I have received information from you tube and tinhat ranch and other places.

I have downloaded dump1090 and am also at loss there as to how and where this program is installed.
I will check the sites you provided and see what I can do with the programs.

i really like to do all of my own work with the computer but RTLSDR is very difficult for me. A lot of the procedures are things that I have never done before and as such are very puzzling.

Thanks for your help and if I get stuck I will send another SOS.

Thanks,
Claude

I can recommend Modesdeco2 who work perfect for me.

dump1090 and modesdeco2 are command line programs. Modesdeco2 is probably the easiest to work with if you don't have much terminal experience. I believe it comes with a .bat file that can just be run, and some decent text instructions.
