TSB 15 is the ENTIRE NHTSA Technical Service Bulletin Database... all at your fingertips anytime day or
night, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is a must have product for pointing out and illustrating any known mechanical
and/or safety trends and problems that may have contributed to the collision you are investigating. These are often preludes to recalls,
Over 2.7 MILLION TSB records are currently in the database, dating back to 1962.
- Created with the very latest and current programming environment available (circa May, 2020!) for maximum compatibility with Windows 10 (including the Windows 10 May 2020 Version 2004 Update!), as well as Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 7.
- The program is High DPI capable. This is a "per monitor" capability as long as you have Windows 10 Build 1703 or newer.
- Includes all of the awesomeness of TSB Versions 1 to 14.
- Pressing OK buttons in message boxes in Windows 10/8.1/8 are now a thing of the past. I've spent a ton of time changing the program over to using the Windows "Action Center" for program warning and error and information notifications instead of a message box. Users of Windows 7 will still have to press OK buttons, unfortunately, as it has no "Action Center" for notifications. That said, if/when you do upgrade your version of Windows TSB 15 will automatically start using the "Action Center" instead of message boxes.
- The total number of Visual Styles you can select from to have TSB 15 look YOUR way is now ~95 styles!
- The main screen has a vertical splitter so users can set the size of the grid and summary to their liking.
- The Print Preview window has thumbnails on the left side of the window for fast and easy selection of the available pages for any given report.
- The report is able to print the Report Header (the graphic and address section) on just the first page of your reports (the default setting) or on all pages. This can be set in the Report Editor.
- There is ample room for the size of the image that will work in the top section of the reports. The old max height and width were 480W x 144H. You can now use up to 520W X 300H. As before, anything over those dimensions will automatically be shrunk down until it fits inside those 2 limits. I also did away with manually setting the max height of the top section. Now, whichever is the tallest between your image and the address information will determine the height of the top section, automatically. The tallest of the two wins!
- The reports also include the ability to have just text in the top section (no logo), and the text can be aligned to the left, center, or right of the report. The original setup with a logo and text to the right is still available, but you MUST have the text aligned to the right in this configuration.
- The Report Editor has also been updated to include the ability to have a test report previewed while you are still working in the editor so you can look at the changes you make in the editor, immediately.
- Our program update procedure is a separate program that runs from outside TSB and is more informative and user friendly, and can handle many updates at once. This means that if it's been a while since you've run TSB and both a full program and database update are available the updater will download and install BOTH installations, in the correct order, so only one update session will take up your valuable time.
- As part of my "Zero Hassle Upgrade Initiative", when installing TSB 15 the installation program will check for TSB 14 Report graphics and Report settings on the computer it's installed on. If it finds these settings from TSB 14 it will automatically copy them into TSB 15. This means all of the Report graphics and Report settings in TSB 14 will be made available to your TSB 15 without you having to push a single button. When you start TSB 15 it will be on your screen exactly where you had TSB 14 set to display and all of your options and settings will already be there for you! You can go straight to work!
- Speaking of installations, all of our programs have passed the Microsoft Certification tests, which means our programs meet the stringent criteria set by Microsoft for a properly behaved and working Windows program.
- The help file, program manual, and change log file are now stored and accessed from our web site instead of being installed with the programs. This means when updates to these files are made they are instantly updated for everyone, all at once.
- We get it - a lot of work to do and new software takes time to explore and test. We now provide a whole month to explore, test and look under hood. The demo time has been set for 30 days for Version 15 programs, to allow more time to adequately test out the program (and fall in love with it).
- Plus no fewer than 20+ other changes that all add up to one awesome program!
- Our software is proudly made in the USA.
- Is available in 64-bit as well as 32-bit (both are included in our installation files).
- Is built with the very latest professional programming tools for maximum compatibility with Windows 10, 8/8.1, and 7.
- Has the latest Microsoft approved and trusted installation program
- Auto Update feature: Our Microsoft approved and trusted installation program will check our web server at program startup (if this option is turned on in the program) to see if there are any program updates, automatically.
- Has been streamlined throughout to be as fast a program as possible.
- F1 key support for accessing the programs' Help file, which is now online.
- We utilize the very fastest and newest in Windows database technology to create a very fast and efficient database program.
- Database covers TSBs from 1962 through today.
- TSBs cover such items as: cars, trucks, motorcycles, semi tractors, semi trailers, motor homes, popup campers, boat trailers, utility trailers, passenger buses, school buses, 5th wheels... etc.
- This software program creates extremely professional reports that can be printed to any Windows compatible printer, and you can also copy the currently displayed page to the clipboard.
- The programs' reports can be printed the size of a postage stamp or with a plotter that puts it on a piece of paper the size of a wall. No jaggies, ever. They always print smooth and nice, no matter what. To my knowledge, none of my competition's reports can do that.
- Reports that can be printed are:
- a single TSB
- all TSBs for a particular make and model for a specific year
- all TSBs for a particular make and model for any year
- all TSBs for a particular make and model from year X to year Y
- and you can even limit the reports to a specific Component
- Sample TSB Report
- The database is updated twice weekly.
- You can update TSBs database for FREE by allowing the program to update at program startup (provided you have an internet connection at the time).
- You're able to start your other Dirigo Software programs (AR Pro 15 and Recall 15) right from within TSB.
- Free support ((messaging us is always the best way to contact us!), and all updates for the same major version number (15.xx, etc.) are always free.
