RT Systems Programmer Installation
Last Updated: 05/22/2015
Installation for the RT Systems programmers must be completed using the original CDs.

Yes, we know this is 2015 and most things are downloadable; but the programmers you purchased in years past were designed for their times. In those times, CD drives were common for computer equipment so CD installation was the norm.

We have spent the last several years developing programmers for many new radios rather than spending time anticipating changes in computer equipment that would change the norm to that of no CD drive. The original programmers that you purchased from 2003 until now have not and will not change. They required a CD drive then and still do. They can be installed through a mapped drive on another computer. Details for that process can be found at
Installation via Mapped drive

RT Systems is working to release all the programmer in the new Version 5 that includes a downloadable installation. These will be available for all the radio programmers over the next three months. You will have the choice to upgrade to these new programmers when your hardware requirements force you. The page will clearly indicate the Version 5 release. You will still be able to order a CD for storage of the installation file; however, the CD will not longer be required for the installation just for transport of the files.

Thank you for your patience as we transition to these new programmers with this and other added enhancements.
