How to Download and Install Motorola MTR2000 CPS Software
The Motorola MTR2000 is a versatile and reliable repeater that can be used for various applications such as public safety, commercial, industrial, and amateur radio. The repeater can be programmed and configured using the Motorola Customer Programming Software (CPS), which is a free download from the Motorola website[^1^]. However, some users may encounter difficulties in downloading and installing the CPS software, especially if they have an older version of Windows or a non-standard file extension. In this article, we will show you how to download and install the Motorola MTR2000 CPS software without any problems.
The first step is to download the CPS software from the Motorola website. You can find the link to the download page in the reference section below[^1^]. The file name is MTR2000.zip and it has a size of about 263 MB. You may need to register or log in to the Motorola website before you can download the file.
Step 2: Extract the Zip File
The next step is to extract the zip file to a folder on your computer. You can use any zip extraction software such as WinZip, WinRAR, or 7-Zip. If you don't have any of these programs, you can download them for free from their respective websites. To extract the zip file, right-click on it and select \"Extract All\" or \"Extract Here\" depending on your preference. You will see a folder named MTR2000 containing several files and subfolders.
Step 3: Install the CPS Software
The final step is to install the CPS software on your computer. To do this, you need to run the setup.exe file located in the MTR2000 folder. However, before you run the setup.exe file, you need to rename it to something else, such as setup1.exe or setup2.exe. This is because some Windows versions may not recognize the file extension .exe as an executable file and may prevent you from running it. To rename the file, right-click on it and select \"Rename\". Then type in a new name and press Enter.
After renaming the file, you can double-click on it to start the installation process. Follow the instructions on the screen and accept the license agreement. You may need to restart your computer after the installation is complete. Once you have installed the CPS software, you can connect your MTR2000 repeater to your computer using a serial cable or a USB-to-serial adapter. You can then launch the CPS software from your Start menu or desktop shortcut and start programming and configuring your repeater.
