iDevTFT Development Software Overview - Licence Free
The iDevTFT software is being developed to simplify the creation, editing and uploading of application menus, fonts and images into itron SMART TFTs. You can add files to a project list on the left side and view/edit the files on the right side. Menu files are shown with multi-colour syntax and error highlighting.
Download for Auto Update Download
iDevTFT by clicking the link below and completing the registration form then using the installation menu. Select SAVE option rather than RUN where applicable. iDevTFT operates with Windows XP, Vista and 7 using Microsoft .NET framework for automatic update.
Note. On some PCs the installation reports a failure, but on a second attempt it seems to launch. Select the SAVE option rather than RUN where applicable.
Sometimes the Microsoft .NET Framework 4 has to be manually downloaded from Microsoft.
Once installed, the .NET auto update function works well keeping you up to date.

Download for Standalone Operation on Restrictive Networks
Some company networks prevent installation of programs installed from the web
A standalone version can be saved to your PC and then run from a local directory.

You still need to ensure Microsoft .NET Framework 4 is present on your machine.
The .NET auto update function will not keep you up to date so you will need to download revisions from this page.
