In summary,

It depends on your purpose (diagnostic or coding or programming) and model (Exx or Fxx or others).

 

For Coding, you need different Tools, NCS Expert / SP-Daten for E-Series and E-Sys / PSdZData for F-Series.

All Diagnosis and Coding can be done with cheap DCAN Cable for E-Series and cheap ENET Cable for F-Series.

 

For Programming (Flashing ECU’s with new Firmware), then you need ISTA/P for for both E-Series and F-Series cars, or you can use WinKFP for E-Series and E-Sys for F-Series. For E-Series Programming, you will need an ICOM, but for F-Series Programming, you can use ENET Cable.

 

For Exx- Series:

Interface = K+DCAN Cable (OBDII to USB) or ICOM

ECU Data Files = SP-Daten

NCS Expert = Coding Software

WinKFP = Programming (Flashing) Software

EDIABAS = Low-Level ECU Communication Software used by NCS Expert & WinKFP

 

For Fxx- / Ixx- / Gxx-Series, Mini, & Rolls-Royce:

Interface = ENET Cable (OBDII to RJ45 Ethernet) or ICOM

ECU Data Files = PSdZData

E-Sys = Coding Software

E-Sys = Programming (Flashing) Software

PROGRAMMING for F/I/G/RR & MINI, but requires an ICOM

ISTA-P

PROGRAMMING traditionally for all chassis, but is being phased out by August 2017, except for legacy E-series.

Replacement ECU’s must be NEW

 

YOU HAVE TO KNOW before you buy ICOM A2 or ICOM A3 or ICOM Next:

 

BMW ICOM NEXT vs the old ICOM

-> much faster in BMW F and G series ..

-> supports gigabit Ethernet too to be future proof, there currently is not gigabit Ethernet protocol defined yet for autos. Also it has USB3.0 instead of USB2.0 and a better wifi card. 

 

 

ICOM NEXT A vs ICOM A2

 

-> more stable during programming

-> be necessary for the future Gbit cars

-> faster start-up times and high throughput

-> through high-performance,low-power ARM SoC

-> improved handling

-> more flexible OBD cable

-> lighted button for logs

 

ICOM A vs ICOM A2 vs ICOM A3

 

Modified ICOM A2 for vehicles with OBD access receives a significantly more powerful processor and more storage capacity. And robust aluminium case will help to avoid damage when using in harsh environments. It works better in cooling, runs faster and works more stable, not easier broken than older ICOM A.

 

ICOM A3 can program all units for all BMW series expect media system, and work more stable and has stronger compatibility than ICOM A2, A1.

clone review:

 

– the clone cannot update firmware
I checked into this further and you are somewhat correct, You can not update the firmware on clones so as new software versions come out, they read the firmware and won’t connect ultil you update the firmware. Since you can’t update the firmware it becomes useless.

I asked if the firmware can be updated or if the Nexiq Firmware will install in the clone and I was told No by the Chinese seller, The firmware in the device can not be updated. The Nexiq Firmware Updater will not work and may render the adapter inoperable.

Also for any warranty you need an RMA # and have to ship the adapter back to China, this is expensive and takes a long time so you get what you pay for. The only thing that looks the same is the case and the name, The guts are not the same.
They are lower quality unless you specify the componants and if the adapter or any drivers or software crashes you are left out in the cold with no support from anyone except a call center in china where they have few if any answeres.

I suggest you watch out for people on eBay selling Nexiq, Cummins or CAT Adapters, they too may be counterfeit… Buyer Beware!

 

 

– the clone Nexiq has different Bluetooth symbol and manual

 

I researched the clone and here is what I found out from Nexiq and other sources…

How to tell if you have a clone

The photo below is a real NEXIQ 12503 USB-Link

Nexiq-USB-Link-2-Bluetooth-original-vs-clone-1Nexiq-USB-Link-2-Bluetooth-original-vs-clone-2

The clone has the two case screws at the top facing the same direction where the real Nexiq has one in from the front and one in from the back.

The case that the clone comes in has square corners on the NEXIQ sticker where the real one has rounded corners, The nexiq also has and orange line under the word Nexiq where the clone has a darker almost red line.

The real one has a Bluetooth symbol on the front of the adapter label and the clone does not.

The User Manual for the real one is spiral bound and barely fits in the case, the clone has a smaller manual and is not spiral bound.

 

 

 

– be careful to buy a Nexiq clone off

 

I have had several people having issues with all the lights blink and they can not connect any more, you can not get warranty on Chinese clones so you are out of luck. Also Chinese clones are made with much lower quality than the real Nexiq.

I have had so many support issues that ended up being bad Chinese Nexiq adapters that I warn customers that if they have a Chinese adapter, they are on their own, I don’t support them and Nexiq won’t warranty them. Be Very careful who you buy a Nexiq off of. TRVideo is a supplier of the real Nexiq and has great support so that is the only source I recommend (Truck Parts Today)

What is electrical wiring diagram:

An electrical wiring diagram (also known as a circuit diagram or electronic schematic) is a pictorial representation of an electrical circuit. It shows the different components of the circuit as simplified and standard pictograms, and the power and signal connections (buses) between the devices. Arrangement of the components and interconnections on the diagram does not usually correspond to their physical locations in the finished device.

 

vehicle wiring diagrams includes wiring diagrams for cars and wiring diagrams for trucks.

How to read automotive wiring diagrams:

 

Wiring diagrams and road maps have much in common. Road maps illustrate how to get from point “A” to point “B.” However, instead of connecting interstates, highways and roads, a wiring diagram shows major electrical systems, sub-systems and individual circuits, all inter-connected. Another feature they have in common are layers of detail. For example, if you look at a road map of California, you won’t be able to locate a street address in Los Angeles. You might find a city or town, but you won’t find a specific address. In order to find the exact location of a particular residence or building, you would need a detailed street map or go online and use Google Maps or the GPS feature on a smartphone.

Automotive-Wiring-Diagrams-Download-1
While this wiring diagram for a 1979 Ford Mustang is dated, the skills required for using it to diagnose an electrical problem are no different than when viewing an online diagram from a late-model automobile. Unfortunately, there are no instructions as to how to actually read, and/or interpret most wiring diagrams whether in print, on a DVD or online.

The same is true (to a lesser extent) of wiring diagrams. Vehicles made before the 1970s usually had their wiring diagrams contained on one, or two pages in a service manual. By the 1980s the complexity of automotive, on-board electronics changed and most vehicle manuals had multiple pages of wiring diagrams to show all of a vehicle’s electrical system. In the 1990s printed service manuals started to disappear and now manuals, and wiring diagrams are found on digital media or online. There is one aspect of wiring diagrams that has unfortunately remained constant. They lack directions regarding how to actually read them. Similar to a map, wiring diagrams will have a legend where symbols and naming conventions are spelled out but no “how-to” instructions.

While online automotive service manuals are written with the “professional” technician in mind, every technician had to learn to read and interpret wiring diagrams at some point in their career. The design and layout of wiring diagrams do not accommodate intermediate, or entry-level technicians by starting with easy-to-understand circuits that become progressively more difficult to read and understand. This article will take a different approach and begin with simple circuits and wiring diagrams, then move on to diagrams with more complexity. This step-by-step process not only makes learning to read a wiring diagram less painful, it promotes a greater understanding of how electrical circuits operate. Becoming more proficient at anything, including reading wiring diagrams, involves practice and there are some challenging questions included for that purpose as well.

 Automotive-Wiring-Diagrams-Download-2
A light bulb powered by a battery illustrates the 3-Things that all 12-volt electrical circuits must have to operate — Power, a Load Device and Ground Return. While this may seem obvious, locating the 3-Things, plus whatever controls the circuit, on a wiring diagram that spans many pages is not a simple process.

3 Things

The simplified wiring diagram of the battery, light bulb and wires is easy to understand. However, if this same circuit was more complicated and included several relays, multiple power sources and a computer controlling the entire circuit, the resulting wiring diagram would be far more challenging to read. A quick review of basic electrical circuits will make understanding how they are depicted in a wiring diagram easier to understand. Every electrical circuit on an automobile has to have 3 things to operate: 1) a power source, 2) load device, and 3) a ground return. The charging system and battery function as power sources and are extended throughout the entire car by way of numerous wires. Load devices are simply anything that does electrical work and can include lighting, starter motor, on-board computers, relays, power windows, keyless entry and many other components. The ground return completes the electrical path from the battery positive terminal, to the load device and back to the battery negative terminal. If any of the 3 things are missing, the circuit won’t operate and wiring diagrams provides a “map” to assist in determining which of the three is not present.

 

In addition to the 3 things, load devices must be controlled. Some load devices are switched on or off by controlling their power source, while others are controlled by switching the ground returns on or off. The most common scenario is using a vehicle’s electronic control unit, or ECU, to ground relays that in turn control load devices. The process of figuring out how a load device is controlled and its power and ground sources can be determined by using a wiring diagram. To learn a logical process for reading complex wiring diagrams we’ll start out with a simple fog light circuit.

 Automotive-Wiring-Diagrams-Download-3
Figure 1 is not typical of wiring diagrams found in a service manual. The fog lights circuit is shown in both ON and OFF states and uses colored lines to illustrate the presence of power. The green, dashed line shows how electricity travels back to the battery’s negative terminal after providing power for the fog lights.

Figure 1 is a simple wiring diagram showing a fog lighting circuit. The circuit consists of a battery, 20-amp fuse (used to protect the circuit), a switch (located on a dash panel), and two fog lights. Ground returns are shown by the ground symbol of a vertical line with three horizontal lines. Not all wiring diagrams show ground wires and it is assumed the ground symbols indicate wires that are connected to the negative battery terminal. This diagram is unusual in that the presence of 12 volts is illustrated with the circuit in both ON and OFF states. Red lines indicate the presence of 12 volts and black lines represent the ground side of the circuit that connects to the battery’s negative terminal. In the circuit OFF part of the diagram, 12 volts is shown to be present from the battery, through the fuse and to the open dash switch. The lower part of the diagram shows the dash switch closed, connecting the battery to the lights and turning them on. It also illustrates one aspect of Kirschoff’s Law that the load device(s) will use all the power (12 volts) in the circuit as the voltage at the negative battery terminal, and on the ground side of the fog lights, is close to 0.0 volts. Unfortunately, actual wiring diagrams do not provide any of these advantages and late model automobile diagrams may not isolate circuits to this extent — more likely they will be part of the overall lighting system. Color, if used at all in a wiring diagram, is for the purpose of identifying individual wire colors, not to indicate power and ground sides of a circuit. In addition, wiring diagrams always default to show a load device in its OFF state and technicians have to imagine the presents of power throughout the circuit with the load turned on and operating.

 Automotive-Wiring-Diagrams-Download-4
Figure 2 shows that a relay has been added to the fog lights circuit. Instead of using a switch as in Figure 1, a relay now controls the high amperage current that the lights require in order to operate. The dash panel switch is used to energize the relay’s control coil that connects power from the battery to the fog lights through the high-amperage contacts inside the relay.
 Automotive-Wiring-Diagrams-Download-5
Relays like this one are used in many 12-volt automobile circuits. They are typically controlled by a computer and provide power to various load devices. These relays can have 4 or 5 terminals. The fifth terminal indicates that the relay is a changeover type, with the fifth terminal normally closed (provides power) when the relay is off. Four-terminal relays only provide power when they are switched on.

There is an inherent problem with the design of the fog lights circuit as shown in Figure 1. These particular fog lights require high amperage (8 amps each, or 16 amps total) from the battery to operate and this high electrical load has to travel through all the wires and dash panel switch to reach the lights. The wires, and especially the switch, would have to be heavy-duty to handle the high current. A simple solution is the addition of a 12-volt relay as shown in Figure 2. The relay takes the place of the heavy-duty switch and provides the high-amperage connection between the fog lights and the battery. The dash panel switch is still a part of the overall circuit, but now it only has to switch the low-amperage relay control coil (0.3 amps) instead of the high-amperage fog lights. The dash panel switch, and the wires connecting it to the circuit, can be smaller because the relay is connecting the battery to the lights and not the switch.

 

The control coil inside the relay is an electro magnet, and when terminal 4 of the relay is connected to ground by the dash panel switch, the coil is energized and pulls down the high-amperage contacts within the relay connecting terminals 1 and 2. This diagram does shows the circuit in the OFF position and is more typical of a real wiring diagram as the technician has to visualize where power is present in the circuit when the lights are on.

While Figure 2 illustrates the basic layout of how a relay is used to operate a high-amperage circuit, it has relevance to modern electronics used in today’s automobiles. Many automotive circuits are controlled by the vehicle’s PCM (power control module) that cannot directly control high current loads. The use of multiple relays solve this problem as the PCM only has to switch the low-amperage relays on and off.

Figure 3 shows a more sophisticated fog lights circuit that has the addition of a second relay. The design of this circuit prevents the fog lights from being turned on if the ignition switch is not in the run or accessory positions regardless of the dash panel switch being left on.

The wiring diagram depicted in Figure 3 shows how the addition of a second relay to the fog lights circuit improving its functionality. Relay #1 provides power to relay #2, the same relay depicted in the previous diagram. Relay #1 is controlled by the ignition switch and only allows the fog lights to operate when the ignition switch is in the accessory or run positions. If the ignition key is in the lock or off positions, or removed from the ignition switch completely, no power is available at Relay #2. This prevents the fog lights from being left on inadvertently, even if the dash panel switch is left on. This diagram is more typical of wiring diagrams found in a service manual. Wires are identified by their color, but there is no color indicating where power is present; the circuit is shown in its OFF state and the relay terminals are identified by number.

The most effective way to learn how to read and use wiring diagrams is to practice. With that in mind, the following three practice questions will test  your knowledge and ability read and interpret wiring diagrams. We’ll go through the first two questions together and leave the third one for you to answer.

 

Automotive electrical wiring diagrams Questions

Question 1. This question refer to Figure 3. With the ignition switch in the “Acc” position, and the dash panel switch off, what terminal numbers on relays #1 and #2 will have 12-volts? Figure number three is typical of wiring diagrams found in a service manual. Relays and switches are shown in their “open” position and color is not used to indicate where power or grounds are present. When reading any wiring diagram, start where a known source of power (12-volts) is located, usually at the battery positive terminal. Relay #1, terminal 3, is directly connected to the battery via the 20-amp fuse. Terminal 1 goes to the ignition switch and in the “Accy” position will also have 12-volts (RED wire to the ignition switch and the ORN wire between the switch and relay). Terminal 2 is a constant ground for the relay’s control coil. The relay is ON and terminals 3 is connected to 4 via the high-amperage contacts.

Relay #2 terminals with 12-volts are: 1 (RED/WHT) and 3 (BRN) that receive power from terminal 4 on relay #1. Terminals 1 and 2 are connected via the relay’s low amperage control coil, therefore terminal 2 has power because the dash switch is open. If the dash switch was closed, terminal 2 would show 0 volts because it is connected to ground and the relay would be “On.” Terminal 4 has no power because the relay is “Off.”

This wiring diagram shows the cooling fan circuit for a late model automobile. The circuit has three relays, controlled by the vehicle’s power control module (PCM), that operate the fans in low or high-speed modes. Wires are identified by wire color. Cooling fan relay terminals are also identified with a letter and number.


Question 2.
 Trace the path that provides power and ground to each cooling fan in the high-speed mode.

Question 2 uses a wiring diagram that is more complex than the one used for the first question. Figure 4 is a typical automotive wiring diagram that shows a radiator cooling fan circuit. Two fuses (40 and 10 amps) power the circuit and are directly connected to the vehicle’s battery (Hot at All Times). There are three relays that connect power to the cooling fans and control low and high speeds.  The relays are controlled by the vehicle’s power control module, or PCM. The diagram also contains notes regarding labeling of components, their physical location and information on what other wiring diagrams are part of the overall circuit. The relay control coils look a little different that those in Figure 3. A resister is shown (zagged line) and is used to prevent voltage spikes from reaching the PCM when the relay is operated. Otherwise the relays work the same as those in Figure 3.

NOTE: This circuit operates on 12-volts. However, when the engine is running the operating voltage is 14-volts, or charging voltage provided by the alternator.

The three cooling fan relays determine the power and ground paths to the cooling fans. To run both cooling fans in the high-speed mode, the PCM grounds both terminals 42 and 33 (low and high-speed cooling fan relay controls). With PCM terminal number 33 grounded, the DK BLU wire becomes the ground for the cooling fan relay #3’s control coil at terminal B4. This turns the relay on because terminal C6 has power all the time from the 10 am fuse. The RED wire at terminal C4 of the relay is connected to the 40 amp cooling fan fuse and with the relay on connects to terminal B6 within the relay. The WHT wire from the relay (terminal B6) is connected to the right cooling fan and provides power. The right cooling fan has a constant ground on the BLK wire. With 14 volts (engine running) on the WHT wire and a ground on the BLK wire the right cooling fan runs at high-speed.

The left cooling fan receives power from the 40a fuse on the RED wire at cooling fan relay #1 (terminal B3). The PCM low speed cooling fan relay control (42) is grounded by the PCM providing a ground at terminal B1 (DK GRN) wire at cooling fan relay #1. On the same relay, terminal C3 gets power from the 10a fuse on the ORN wire. With power at C3 and a ground a B1 the relay operates and connects relay terminals B3 to C1 providing power to the left cooling fan on the LT BLU wire. The GRY wire from the left cooling fan is a ground, but only when cooling fan relay #2 is turned on by the PCM high-speed relay control ground at relay terminal C10 on the DK BLU wire. Relay #2 connects the GRY wire from the left cooling fan to the BLK wire (no terminal number listed). The BLK wire provides the ground for the left cooling fan and it runs at high-speed.

We have walked through the answers and analysis to questions 1 and 2. Finding the answer to question 3 is up to you.

Question 3. Trace the path that provides power to each cooling fan in the low-speed mode. Identify the wire colors, relays, and relay terminals that are powered during fan operation. Trace the ground return path for the relays and cooling fans—identify the wire colors and relay terminals used in the ground side of the circuit.

Answer to Question 3

To understand the low-speed fan operation a quick review of electrical theory will help. In a parallel circuit (the most common type used in automobiles) all load devices operate on system voltage. For example, when the cooling fans operate in the high-speed mode each has 14v from the 40a fuse. A series circuit operates differently. With two load devices wired in series, they divide the available voltage between them. In the low-speed mode the cooling fans are wired in series and each fan runs on 7 volts — one half of the system voltage of 14 volts.

During low-speed fan operation the PCM low speed relay control is grounded turning on cooling fan relay #1. With a ground at relay terminal B1 (DK GRN wire), and power at C3 the relay’s control coil connects the high-amperage contacts (terminals B3 and C1). This connects power (14-volts) from the 40a fuse (RED wire) to the LT BLU wire going to the left cooling fan. The GRY wire from the left cooling fan goes to terminal C8 of relay #2. Cooling fan relay #2 is not triggered by the PCM in the low speed mode and the C8 to B9 relay connection is normally closed. The WHT wire at cooling fan relay #2 (B9) goes to the right cooling fan providing 7 volts (one half of 14 volts) to power the fan. Cooling fan relay #3 is not operated in low-speed fan operation. The BLK wire from the right fan provides the ground return for BOTH fans. Because the fans are wired in series, they divide system voltage (14 volts) equally between them and both operate on 7 volts causing them to run at low speed.

Note: For 64-bit version of Windows 8 and 10 (most of newer computer or laptops), the only ElsaWin that support are versions 4 or newer. The current one now is 5.2 which includes some of the 2016 models.

 

ElsaWin 4.0 and 4.1 update should not have any problems installing first regardless, but most of the problems exist in the Elsawin 5.0 update when the SQL 2008 is installed. Windows 10 will give warning that the SQL 2008 may not be compatible, but it won’t stop the installation if everything is update correctly.

*** Make sure to run the setup.exe with Administrator permission ***

install-elsawin-5.2-on-windows-8-10 (3)

Elsawin 5.3 Windows 7 32bit:

 

This is how i installed:
– first make shure that you have full authorizations in Windows 7 (administrator)
– Then turn off the DEP (data execution prevention) function in windows 7 by : Run CMD as admin, run command – bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff , and reboot.

Run ElsaWin 4.0 till 5.3 as admin with XP compatibility. DO NOT ADD a database till you finished update 5.3, and with all installations “Check” and install the German language. (this to avoid missing graphics files.) i have done a reboot after each update.

Then install any DB you have!!

If the 5.3 version does not accept the DB because it’s to old just take one of the Control#??.xml files open it in Notepad++(google to download) in the bottom line you see the file nr. () change the ??(nr.) to “53” , then save a copy as : control#53.xml and add to your DB and you can run the BD with success. (tested)

Also check if the languages you have “checked” in the Elsa installation are in the DB setup, if they are not in the DB setup it can be that the setup will be cancelled and no DB is installed or that just the DB is installed but not in all the languages you sellected in the Elsa installation.

Check also before installation if the DB is complete. there are a lot of DB on the net that are incomplete, some have no Graphics file, some have just 1 or 2 languages or other files missing.
If you have a known working database use it to compare it with your new database.

i have installed for now the DB VW and Audi.

– VW Database_04.2015 36,3 GB (installed this first because of the size, maybe more complete and is with commercial vehicles)
– VW_01.2016 21.5 GB
– Audi_02_2016 25,3 GB – BEFORE INSTALLING THIS AUDI DB !! open it in Windows Explorer and look for the file : saz.a._graphics.cab and change the name to: saz.a.#graphics.cab
It’s just a Typo (error in the name). replace the “_” in “#”. if you do not you get an error during installation and you end without the graphics.

i also have these DB: Seat 01-2015 and Skoda 03-2012 , But i did not installed them because mine versions are far from complete and useless.

Elsawin 5.2 Windows 7 64 bit:

 

May you need to install Elsawin on 64 bit with luck. People hardly ever have good success on 64 bit system.

 

Here are Elsawin win7 x64 reviews:

 

Elsawin win7 x64: Failed!

 

– does not work on 64 bit – 32 bit only

 

– I have Windows 764BIT and ElsaWin3.9. When I try to install it fails (obviously).

 

– It acquires something like vmware which allows you to run a virtual machine within the windows 7 environment,  you will need a xp iso image to install on the virtual machine.

 

 

– I have a new laptop which came pre-loaded with Windows 7 Home premium 64bit. I’ve tried to install my copy of Elsawin, but it just won’t have it and keeps failing on the first stage of the install.

 

– Works fine on my desktop with Win 7 HP 32 bit but fails in the 64bit environment

 

 

Elsawin win7 x64: Success!

 

– ELSA 4.0 runs ok on Win7 x64…

 

– Need to run as XP and also as an Admin

 

– I’ve been told that if I had Professional it would work as it has an emulator ( or do they mean it has a run in XP mode — or is that effectively the same)

 

– Try installing windows XP mode, its brilliant! got Elsawin running here right now!

 

– I run it on 64bit Win7 ultimate, I use the free Windows XP emulation for Elsawin and ETKA

 

 

In summary, few users have good experience of installing Elsawin directly on Windows 7 64bit. Most of them go to 32bit or use windows xp mode as a solution.

 

 

Elsawin 5.2 Window XP:

 

The method of Elsawin 5.2 XP installation is the same as Win 7 32bit:

 

Step 1: Install AdbeReader 9.0

Step 2: Install & Activate SetupCD_4.00

Step 3: Install SKODA data

Step 4: Install UpdateCD_4.10

Step 5: Install UpdateCD_5.00

Step 6: Install SEAT data

Step 7: UpdateCD_5.10

Step 8: Install VW data

Step 9: Install UpdateCD_5.20

Step 10: Install AUDI data

Part 4: Elsawin software FAQs

 

– I’m not using the VIN field because when I do, the SW says that I have to launch a query, then opens an IE window, which leads to a non existent web site, and then a “login failed” error message.

– it is limited to the the information already on your pc, you need a dealer code to get through to the website and get more information, that said there is still alot of data in there

to make it work, put your Vin number in, and fill out the rest of the fields, to get the right information you can use the audi codes printed on the inside cover of your service schedule booklet

click on developpe (on your version and double click the vehicle.

you can then access the correct information for your car.

 

– When installing elsawin 5.30, I immidiatly get the error “msxml2.domdocument 3” not found or version too old.

– I can not help much with the installation of version 5.X.
I only use version 4.1 because of the exaggerated disk space used by version 5.

You installed the Skoda Data DVD and Replaced the original Skoda Data DVD files: rl.C.en-GB.cab and all other languages: rl.C.xx-XX.cab ?
Version 5 does not install with these original files. If this is the case, you need these modified files.

 

– is there any possibility of installing Elsawin 5.3, with databases and functionalities?
I know that skoda only exists until 2012..but in elsawin 4.1 I can see them all

– Yes! You can install 5.X versions. But you need to edit the files rldal.C.xx-XX.mdb That are inside the files rl.C.xx-XX.cab or edit directly after installing version 4.x of the SKODA brand the files rldal.C.xx-XX.mdb in folder C:\Elsamin\Data\
Use Pass D2F224C3 to open/edit the files rldal.C.xx-XX.mdb
Some tables in .mdb files have some missing columns. Add these missing columns.
You can search for the missing columns in comparison with the files of the other brands (VW, AUDI or SEAT)
You can also use the program StarInix Database Compare to compare the differences.

Here are two user solutions. Wish this helps!

 

– Solution from vagvag:

Just run the Elsawin Administator with admin/admin and enter again your license key (services>code>code request) that you loosed with the classic Elsawin keygen

 

– Solution from garagemand:

I made a reinstall of ELSA on Windows 10, and that works.

I have install following items:
SetupCD 4.00
UpdateCD 4.10
Base 01.2014
Try to update with following, but didn’t have any success
Elsa_50_Upd_Setup.exe
Elsa_52_Upd_Setup.exe
6.Base_01.2015 has no setup.exe
