I have some errors in communication between XCTU and xbee pro module.
Also the ATNI command dosent responce:
How can I configure and upgrade them?!!!.
I use windows 7, so I download the “ftdi_WindowsVistaDrivers” file from digi.com and open it in “download new version” window, but see no changes.
Should I download “ftdi_WindowsVistaDrivers” when my xbee pro module is connected to pc or no?!!
May you help me what can I do?!!

Hi, everybody! The problem described by mantou in fact only occurs on programmable XBee modules. It can be solved according to the following article: http://www.digi.com/support/kbase/kbaseresultdetl?id=3291.

Download new XCTU version 6.3.0.
Tools -> XBee recovery
Choose your module version.
