How to setup Printer on Auro IM600 Autel IM608

Q: Anyone know how to setup printer on Auro OtoSys IM600/ Autel MaxiIM IM608?

A: Same process as Autel Maxisys series scanners. Check step-by-step instructions below.

How to enable IM600/IM608 wireless printing?

Autel scan tools cannot sent files directly to a wireless printer.

Instead, you need to install PC Suite software onto a computer which the scan tool will use as a gateway to print.

Install the Maxi PC Suite from the Autel

Download thew new Maxi PC Suite from Autel official website

Autel Printer App system requirement:

A computer connected to the same network (wired or wireless) as the Autel unit
Win7 Extractor or WinRAR (The Autel file is downloaded in a .ZIP format and must be extracted)
A restart is required after installation

The drivers for the Autel j2534 and PC Link for wireless printing are included in the Maxi PC suite.

Go to Supports & Updates->Firmware & Download-> Update Client-> Download Here

Remove Maxi PC Suite is it is currently installed.
Skip this step if you have latest Maxi PC Suite installed


Install the new Maxi PC Suite software



Make sure the latest Adobe Acrobat Reader is installed


Add exceptions to anti virus


Allow PC Link Program on Windows Firewall


Open PC Link from Maxi PC Suite


Make sure the PC Link is running in the background process

Open MaxiSys Printer

(Verify the Maxi PC suite is running? The easiest way to check the system tray at the bottom right on the task bar for the Maxisys Printer Icon.)

Disable Auto Print


Perform a test print from the Autel IM608



After tapping the print option, you should see the “Creating print file” dialog box.


You may be asked to select a “Printer”, which is simply the name of the computer, if there is more than one computer running the PC Link software. Tap to select a computer destination which will be indicated by the blue check mark. Then press, “OK”


The “Upload file to the printer” dialog box should appear for several seconds, and will disappear when the file is transfer to the computer.

Print confirmed





You should now be able to print any single page or entire report from your Autel diagnostic tools by selecting the print icon in the top right of the Maxi PC Suite pages.
