No need any special settings
After install, connect your vas5054a in OBD and USB, install driver.
Open your Odis! All will work
Odis 4.2.3 Windows 7:
I will prefer you to use windows 7 for all the diagnostic devices, this is because of the security of the windows 10. The best way to get a good working diagnostic program is to have one and only laptop for this. A clean windows 7 is the best way.
Have a try on Win 7 32 bit and 64. both have the luck
32bit: x86 is soooo much better since there is no any lack of the functionality for any kind of driver of ur laptop , I test both x86 is better and u can install both yes ODIS-S and ODIS-E
64 bit: I installed on win7 64bit and it installed and I added the update file from the download, starts and works very well
Odis 4.2.3 Windows 10:
Windows 10 only supports the new diagnostic interface VAS 6154 wifi interface(known as the WLAN remote head). Users of the older models VAS 5054 Bluetooth scanner, VAS 5054A and VAS 5055 can continue to use the Windows 7 client on existing systems until 2019 or acquire the Windows 7 client from IT Client Support for replacement devices. The new diagnostic interface can be used with both operating systems. Please place any necessary orders with Workshop.

Difference Between JLR Pathfinder and SDD software

Here, i’ll chip in words of “Goodbye JLR SDD and Hello Pathfinder”
What’s the difference between Pathfinder and SDD software?
1.The JLR Pathfinder software
(You must have a online account to work with it; won’t offer it)
It is the only unit that will be compatible with the Pathfinder software and all JLR vehicles with the new vehicle architectures found in 2017 and newer vehicles (from the Range Rover/Range Rover Sport L405/L494). In addition to the 2017 and newer vehicles, the JLR DoIP VCI will also be capable of interfacing with 2014 through 2016 Multi-CAN architecture vehicles (see application list below).
2.The SDD software
(If you want to do programming, you must have an online account)
All 2014-2017 with no DOIP and earlier (2006 to 2014) land rover and Jaguar will still use the JLR SDDsoftware.
Why we use JLR Pathfinder instead of SDD?
The reason for SDD being retired and Pathfinder being introduced is more because of the contract with Ford expiring, as the SDD is based on the Ford IDS, so JLR has to pay Ford to keep using it.
The major change to the cars themselves is the infotainment system, the Next Generation Infotainment (NGI) is an ethernet-based system, vs the older MOST fibre-optic infotainment i.e. the IAM2.1
So yeah, you could not (easily or economically) retrofit the NGI system into an IAM2.1 car, for example. The components and network are totally different.
But… the NGI has been in some JLR vehicles since 2016, and is supported by SDD. There will be a cutoff where new models are no longer supported by SDD and only by Pathfinder. But Pathfinder also works on older vehicles too, back to 2014MY (approximately).
What tool can be used with Pathfinder software?
The  JLR DoIP VCI interface! Both original and clone are okay.
It is the only unit that will be compatible with the Pathfinder Software and all JLR vehicles with the new vehicle architectures found in 2017 and newer vehicles (from the Range Rover/Range Rover Sport L405/L494). In addition to the 2017 and newer vehicles.
the DoIP VCI will also be capable of interfacing with 2014 through 2016 Multi-CAN architecture vehicles (see application list below). Vehicles 2014 and older vehicles not detailed here will continue to use the current diagnostic system and VCIs.
It’s tested by professionals.

How to use BMWAiCoder software for BMW coding

BMW E-Sys F-series coding software is the most widely known BMW car coding program. Instead of providing powerful functionality, you have to install the Launcher for the token and install psdzdata. Also, there is an initial entry barriers because it is not easy to learn how to use and become proficient.
BMWAiCoder is a program that makes this entry barriers lower and easier to code. Just install BMWAiCoder and you can start using it in English, but each button has a number so you can easily code it by following the steps. However, it has a disadvantage in that it is limited in functionality and less stable than E-Sys. In addition, since the 4.6 version is no longer being updated and the author does not seem to be willing to update, it is better to use it to fix some coordinates quickly and easily, rather than using it as a full-blown coding tool.



If you unzip it, you can use it immediately and there is no installation process.
Depending on the vaccine, the executable program may be recognized as malicious code. In this case, please allow it. If you are worried, please delete it. (You are at your risk. Credit to Mr. jihunx)

How to use

Connect the vehicle and the laptop with a BMW ENET coding cable and turn on the vehicle.
Run BMWAiCoder.exe from the extracted folder .
When you run the program, the first firewall access pop-up may appear. Please select Accept.
After running the program, the download keywords window will open automatically. The process of downloading additional items to be coded on the Internet. Since it will be used in English,  Select English language and press Download button.
Do not worry if you have not seen this screen for the first time or if you accidentally hand it over. You can download again at any time by pressing Custom Menu.
The coding process is easy to explain. You’ll see a button with a number, you can complete the coding by following  buttons in order. Of course, with understanding of the coding and basic coding concepts.
Press 1. DetectCar and press 2. Connect to connect to the vehicle.
Press 3. Get ECUs List to bring up the entire module list.
From the list of ECUs, select the module you want to code.
Press Read Button to call up a list of coded coordinates that can be made in the module [1].
After changing the value of the desired item, press the [2] 5.Write button to raise the modified value to the vehicle [3].
If you want to cancel the modification and return to the original value, click the Restore button.

How to install TIS2000 GlobalTIS for GM Tech2 Scanner

Tutorial: GM Tech2 diagnostic scan tool software install for SAAB, OPEL, GM, ISUZU, Suzuki and Holden, esp. how-to’s of GlobalTIS or TIS2000 install and crack issues


Part 1: How to install Windows XP on a computer

Part 2: How to disable Delayed Write for USB drive via Device Manager

Part 3: Tech 2 bin file and software download

Part 4: How to install & crack TIS2000

Part 5: How to install & crack GlobalTIS


Let’s live-stream-ish this.


Part 1: PC requirement and Windows XP install


All of the Tech 2 software is intended to work with Windows XP Professional, 32-bit. It may be possible to use the software using another OS, but results are hit or miss. Broadly speaking, you will probably have good luck with a 32-bit version of Windows 7 and every step you move away from that OS towards current it’s going to be more difficult.


Similarly, all Tech 2 software is intended to be used over a physical serial (“COM”) port. It may be possible to use the software over a simulated serial port such as a USB to serial adapter, but results are hit or miss. There are a couple specific adapters that are generally considered to work better than others (perhaps someone would care to offer ones they have gotten working, and someone can update this post).


For the purposes of this tutorial, we are going to use Windows XP Pro 32-bit running directly on a PC with a physical serial port.

What I have:


  1. Dell Vostro 320 – this is a c2010 all-in-one computer that still has native support for Windows XP and has a physical serial port. Mine has an Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 and 3gb of RAM – it’s way more than the Tech 2 software needs but will work great.
  2. Dell Windows XP SP3 physical CD that I’m using to install XP fresh.
  3. Chinese clone GM Tech 2, from
  4. Three PCMCIA cards from the same place. Two are Saab-English 148 and one is GM-English 33.004
  5. 16gb flash drive. (Believe me, you want this)


I need to assume you know how to install Windows XP on a computer.


There are simply way too many variables to explain how to do this. If you don’t know how, there are lots of tutorials out there that can help you.

We are going to pick up right after you’ve done a fresh install of Windows XP on your computer. I would highly recommend you do this – picking up someone’s 10 year old computer and hoping it just works opens you up to world of pain – old anti-virus software, questionable Java installations, corrupted registries, blah blah. XP is old and stupid, you’re best served starting over.


As I write this, I am just finishing up installing Windows XP Pro SP3 on my Dell Vostro 320. When it’s done, the system will reboot and ask me some questions:


  1. Do I want to change my display settings? Yes I do.
  2. Do I want to turn on automatic updates? No I don’t, not right now.
  3. My name? I like User, because it’s non-committal.


It’s then going to log me on. The first thing I am going to do is open Device Manager:


  1. Click the Start menu
  2. Right click on My Computer
  3. Choose Properties
  4. Choose the Hardware tab
  5. Click Device Manager


and look at all the devices that have yellow question marks next to them, probably hanging out under Other Devices, indicating there are no device drivers. There are two things you are likely going to want to do:


  1. Get a video driver installed so you can fully use the various Tech 2 applications and, most likely, WIS and EPC. If you have a Display driver called “Standard VGA” or an Other Device called “Video Controller” you are going to need a driver. For XP-era machines, there are going to be three main sources of video drivers – Intel, AMD/ATI, and Nvidia. You are going to need to know who you need to hit up to get your video driver. I probably can’t help you with that.


  1. Make sure your chipset drivers are installed to ensure Windows is managing your chipset properly as otherwise, you could have serial port and USB issues. If you have a bunch of unknown devices called “PCI Device,” you’re probably missing some chipset drivers. As with the video drivers, Intel, AMD/ATI, and Nvidia are the common chipset manufacturers for the aughts. You need to know what chipset you have. I probably can’t help with that.


The rest of the stuff – things like sound devices and network devices, really aren’t important. In fact, to some degree, you really don’t want network devices working – that can potentially hamstring your Tech 2 experience and We The People of the Internet don’t need your dinosaur OS spreading viruses around the tubes. So, you’re in good shape not having network drivers installed.


If you have a Dell computer, getting drivers for your system is easy. Look on the back or bottom of your computer and find the 7-digit Service Tag. Alternatively:


  1. Click the Start Menu
  2. Click All Programs
  3. Click Accessories
  4. Click Command Prompt
  5. In the black Command Prompt window that appears, type:


wmic bios get serial number


and press Enter.

  1. After Windows installs wmic (it happens automatically) it will return the Serial Number of your PC, which also happens to be your Service Tag. (Yes, I am so lazy I’m not even going to turn this machine around)




  1. Visit
  2. Click Support -> Support by Product
  3. Type in the Service Tag you just obtained
  4. Click Drivers & Downloads
  5. You will probably need to locate the option “Operating System” and choose “Change OS” to Windows XP
  6. Stick that 16gb flash drive into the computer and start downloading drivers
  7. Once the drivers you need are downloaded, take that 16gb flash drive into your DeLorean… I mean old computer, and install them one by one. It’s lots of fun!



Part 2: How to disable Delayed Write for USB drive via Device Manager


I would also go ahead and disable Delayed Write for your USB drive via Device Manager:


  1. Click the Start menu
  2. Right-click on My Computer
  3. choose Properties.
  4. Click on the Hardware tab.
  5. Click on the Device Manager button.
  6. Find your in the list, probably under “Disk Drives.”
  7. Right-click on the device and choose Properties.
  8. Click on the Policies tab.
  9. Uncheck Enable write caching on disk.
  10. Click on OK.


Why do this? Because delayed writes on removable drives are annoying. While it’s on, you will need to “Safely Eject Hardware” every time you want to remove that USB drive. You’re going to be moving it around a lot, Ejecting every time gets old fast. Microsoft was smart and disabled delayed writes on Vista/7/8/10 by default… which is why you don’t need to Eject drives from those newer OSs. So, seriously, just disable it on your XP machine as well.


Be sure you finish up your installation with a reboot. It’s XP, it never hurts.

At this point, you should have a functional XP machine, c2008, so you have about seven years worth of updates to install. Fortunately, there is an easy way. Take your 16gb flash drive, plug it back into the other computer – the one with an internet connection – and go to


Scroll down a bit to the Windows XP Unofficial SP4 Download Locations and download it from Google Drive. Click the Google Drive link, locate the WindowsXP-USP4-v[whatever the current version is]-x86-ENU.exe file, right click on it, and choose download. It’s about 1gb, it will take a while.

Once it’s done, take that flash drive back to your time machine computer and get to installing. Remember, XP only supports USB 2.0 at best, so installation is going to take a while!


I’m going to do that now.




Part 3: Tech 2 bin file and software download


While Unofficial XP SP4 is installing, let’s go ahead and talk about Tech 2 and Saab specialty software.

You’re going to need it, and the downloads total around 5gb so it will take a while.


Tech 2 software download:

All in one:!AuMFf5LIARiPhoFnPRPppeYFz_RnTw  (unknown security)


32MB PC Card with all GM software: (tested)


In that onedrive link you’ll find two folders. The first is PDFs, which contains a bunch of stuff you don’t care about. The second is Software, and you care very, very much about the contents of this folder. Click on it. I know you want to.


Inside the Software folder are some more folders, so let’s talk about them:


BIN Files: Contains a bunch of PCMCIA card images. This is the software that makes Tech 2 work. Each BIN file represents one PCMCIA card’s worth of data. Assuming you were smart and ordered a Saab-English 148 card with your Tech 2, you can safely ignore the files in this folder. If you did not, you will want to download the Saab 148.bin file. Hang onto it, we’ll circle back to these BIN files later. (In case anyone is curious, PCMCIA BIN files have nothing to do with bins commonly referred to when tuning cars – don’t get confused) You can almost certainly safely ignore the rest of the contents of this folder.


GlobalTIS: Contains a gigantic ZIP file which includes GlobalTIS and the crack for it. You need this. Start downloading.


TIS2000: Contains a medium sized 7zip file which includes TIS2000 and the crack for it. You need this. Start downloading.


Miscellaneous: Contains two subfolders. Tech 2 Card Writer is a cool little utility that allows you to write the BIN files we discussed earlier to a PCMCIA card installed in your Tech 2. This is great because it means the XP computer you’re building right this second doesn’t need a PCMCIA card slot of its own. ALL WIN. Download the card_writer.exe file from this subfolder. Memory Card Explorer contains a utility that lets you look around on PCMCIA cards. This is probably not useful for most people. You can download it, but you probably won’t use it. Do note that nobody bothered to ZIP up the Memory Card Explorer, so you need to download that entire folder by right clicking it and choosing download. Don’t try to download all those files inidividually. That sounds awful.


User Guides: Man, if people read the manuals we probably wouldn’t need this thread, so don’t start now. Ignore this folder.


WIS: Contains another huge file that is the Saab Workshop Information System installer. This version has been modified so it will run properly on later operating systems. You want this, start downloading.


Depending on your internet connection and Microsoft’s bandwidth generosity, these downloads could take a while. For the big ones – GlobalTIS and WIS – I would highly recommend downloading one at a time for maximum throughput. It really sucks when you have a slow download and something interrupts you…


Download all this stuff to your newer/faster computer – don’t put it straight on the flash drive. We need to do some things to these files before moving them over to Old Faithful.



Part 4: How to install & crack TIS2000 for Tech2 use


If you’re at this point, you should have:


  1. A old, awful computer running Windows XP SP3, fully patched and up to date using Unofficial SP4, with potentially a bare minimum of device drivers


  1. Your new, wonderful computer with bunch of downloads from onedrive


First up, let’s get TIS2000 running.


To get that going, you need to download and install 7zip. Visit this site:


and download the appropriate version of 7zip for the OS on your newer, internet connected computer. Once it’s downloaded, go ahead and install 7zip.


Once 7zip is installed, find 7zip File Manager on your Start menu and run it. By default, it will open up your Downloads directory, which is probably where you’ve put THE “TIS 2000 Dongle Crack.7z” file you downloaded earlier. If you did not put it in your Downloads directory, you’ll need to go find it!


Once you’ve located “TIS 2000 Dongle Crack.7z” in the 7zip File Manager, double click on it. It will open and a display a folder called “TIS2000 Dongle Crack!” You get to double click on that, too! In there you will find several folders and files.


Plug in your trusty 16gb flash drive. Make a folder on that flash drive called TIS2000, then navigate into your new TIS2000 folder.


Now, in 7zip File Manager select all six items and drag them into the TIS2000 folder you just made on your flash drive. It may take quite some time to finish EVEN AFTER THE STATUS WINDOW DISAPPEARS, be patient and wait for Windows to finish.


Once it’s done, take the flash drive from new computer to old.

We’re going to install TIS2000.


  1. Open up the flash drive on the old computer
  2. Double click on the TIS2000 folder
  3. Double click on the Saab TIS2000 2.2008 folder
  4. Double click on the cosids folder
  5. Double click on SETUP.EXE (there are several files named setup, or similar to setup – you need SETUP.EXE, it has the icon of a car connected to a Tech 2 which, you know, makes sense)
  6. The installer will ask a few questions. CHOOSE ALL THE DEFAULTS. CHANGE NOTHING.


The installer takes a while. Be patient.


After TIS2000 is installed, you need to install the dongle emulator.


  1. Open up the flash drive on the old computer
  2. Double click on the TIS2000 folder
  3. Double click on the Drivers folder
  4. Double click on DDINST32.EXE
  5. Choose Express installation
  6. When it’s done, choose Exit


Now we need to install the crack.


  1. Click on the Start Menu
  2. Choose Run
  3. In the Run dialog box, type


c:\program files\cosids\bin


and press OK

  1. Open up the flash drive on the old computer
  2. Drag id.dll from the flash drive window to the c:\program files\cosids\bin window. Windows will ask if you want to replace the existing file. Choose YES.
  3. Drag SCAControlUI.exe from the flash drive window to the c:\program files\cosids\bin window. Windows will ask if you want to replace the existing file. Choose YES.
  4. Close the c:\program files\cosids\bin window.
  5. Click on the Start Menu
  6. Choose Run
  7. In the Run dialog box type:




and press OK

  1. Choose Show the contents of this folder
  2. Open up the flash drive on the old computer
  3. Double click on the Dongle folder
  4. Drag each of the files – GOODKEY.SSI and SSIPDDP.SYS – from the Dongle folder to the c:\windows\system32 folder. MAKE SURE YOU DRAG THESE FILES INTO C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 AND NOT ONE OF THE OTHER SUBFOLDERS IN THERE BY ACCIDENT.


You have successfully installed TIS2000.


Note that: the easy way to have a TIS2000 crack:  (cracked, no need crack yourself)



Part 5: How to install GobalTIS and crack it for use


Okay, now let’s get going with GlobalTIS.

There are more hoops to jump through here, so get ready.


The first thing you need to do is locate the you downloaded previously from onedrive. We can go ahead an unzip it on the newer computer:


  1. Right click on the file
  2. Choose Extract or Extract All (depends on which version of Windows you’re using)
  3. Change nothing, just click Extract


When it’s done, a new window will open. This is a new folder called GlobalTIS that contains all the files in


First, locate Saab Global TIS 2010-1.iso – This is an “ISO image” of the GlobalTIS install DVD. What we do here depends on what operating system your newer computer is.


If you are using Windows Vista you’re insane. But, if you’ve got that or Windows 7 your easy option is to stick a blank DVD in your drive write that ISO out to a physical disk.


If you are using Windows 8 or Windows 10, you can actually view the content of that ISO without burning it out to a physical disk. One you have access to the content, you can copy them to your 16gb flash drive and install from there. I think – I’ve not tried this, but I will give it a go in the near future. Windows 8 and Windows 10 still have the option to burn ISOs to physical media.


Even if you’re using Windows Vista or 7, you can install software to view the contents. Visit this URL:….aspx?id=38780


and install the Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel.


Now, all that said – because I do not have firsthand experience installing GlobalTIS from a flash drive and because there are a lot of variables in making that happen, we’re going to proceed by burning that ISO image to a physical DVD… that will be the same experience across all PCs. So, if you know what you’re doing with mounting ISOs and whatnot, go for it. The rest of the class is going to make a future plastic frisbee.


  1. Put a blank DVD in your DVD drive (if Windows pops up with an Autoplay window, just “x” out of it)
  2. Locate Saab Global TIS 2010-1.iso in the GlobalTIS folder we made a minute ago
  3. Right click on Saab Global TIS 2010-1.iso
  4. Select Burn Disc Image
  5. After the Windows Disc Image Burner loads, click Burn


This process will take a little while, so be patient.


While it’s burning, we can do some other things!


Click on your Start Menu and go find 7-zip File Manager from earlier. Click on it. By default, it will open up your Downloads directory, which is probably where you’ve put the “” file, *and* where we made the GlobalTIS folder just a minute ago. If you did not put it in your Downloads directory, you’ll need to go find it! In 7-Zip File Manager, double click on the GlobalTIS FOLDER (NOT the file). Double click on SAAB GLOBALTIS KEYGEN.rar. Inside are two files – KeyGen.bat and KeyGen.class.


  1. Plug your 16gb flash back into the newer computer if it’s not already.
  2. Open it up, and make a new folder called keygen.
  3. Drag the two files – KeyGen.bat and KeyGen.class – from the 7-zip File Manager to the keygen folder you just made on the flash drive
  4. Close 7-zip File Manage


Finally, copy the Java 6 for global tis.exe file from your GlobalTIS folder to the flash drive.


Now, we have one last prepatory thing to do. Go here:


and get yourself a FREE DOWNLOAD of Foxit PDF Reader. Save it to the flash drive.


You should now have:


  1. A DVD with the GlobalTIS program
  2. A flash drive with a folder called keygen that has two files in it
  3. Java 6 for global tis.exe on your flash drive
  4. FoxitReader83_enu_Setup_Prom.exe on your flash drive


Take the flash drive from the computer, and return it that old busted XP rig you got on Ebay.


  1. Open up the flash drive
  2. Double click on Java 6 for global tis.exe
  3. Run through the Java installer – it will only take a second.


Note the last screen after Java installs: Java will periodically check for updates. This is one of those reasons you don’t want this computer connected to the internet – you do NOT want Java updating. It’s important.


After Java has installed, let’s run Internet Explorer one time to be sure it works. Click on the Start Menu, click on Internet. You may be prompted to answer some questions – I encourage you to answer those questions and NOT to click “Ask me later.” Just get it over with.


Everything look good? Great.


Now we need to install the PDF viewer software. Open up the flash drive and double click on FoxitReader83_enu_Setup_Prom.exe to start the installation. Don’t change any of the options, just click Next through the entire process. When it’s done, click Finish and Foxit will open. Choose Not Now, exit Foxit.


Place the DVD you just burned into the XP machine’s drive. Autoplay should take over – after a few seconds you will get the InstallAnywhere window and a moving status bar. If you do not, you jumped ahead and turned off Autorun, shame on you. You’re either with me or against me.


Run through the GlobalTIS installer, which primarily consists of clicking OK and Next a few times. Do not change the default install path, don’t change the installation type, don’t change the host, don’t change ports, don’t configure a mail server, don’t add a proxy. OK and Next is all you do UNTIL you get to the Dealer Code. Type in a 6-digit number of your choosing. REMEMBER THE SIX DIGIT NUMBER. I used 599599!


GlobalTIS takes an eternity to install, be patient. Lots and lots of tiny files.




If you’re like me, you probably disappeared a 22oz of Drake’s while you waited for GlobalTIS to install, so things may get a little rough. Stick with it. You can do anything you put your mind to.


At long last you get to click Done, and GlobalTIS is installed.

Now we need to crack GlobalTIS.


First, locate the GlobalTIS icon on your desktop. Double click on it. Internet Explorer will load, and it will probably take a long time before anything happens. Be patient, let it sit there.


IE will eventually respond with a popup advising you information sent over the internet isn’t secure. That’s cool, make sure the “Don’t show this…” box is checked and click Yes.


Look at the top of the screen, and note the warning “Intranet settings are turned off by default….” We need to turn them back on, so click on the banner where it says “Click for options” and choose Enable Intranet Settings. You will get a warning dialog, click Yes.


You will be returned to the GlobalTIS registration page. You need to pay attention here:


  1. Click Edit Dealership Data
  2. Fill out EVERYTHING. The data is going nowhere, use whatever information you like, BUT note the Dealership ID. Use the same ID you provided earlier. If you’re me, that’d be 599599.
  3. Click Save when you’re done.
  4. You will be notified the dealer data has been stored, click OK.
  5. Don’t change the user count, don’t change the brand subscription
  6. Click Email/Fax Registration
  7. IE will pop up asking for a place to save a file. The default is My Documents. Just leave it, click Save.
  8. Click Close to dismiss the download dialog
  9. In the GlobalTIS window, click the Logout button.
  10. Confirm you wish to log out.
  11. Close Internet Explorer


Next we need to get some information.


  1. Click on the Start menu
  2. Click on My Documents
  3. Double click on the file called “registration” – this is the file GlobalTIS made just a minute ago
  4. Foxit will open and display a PDF with a GM Europe Header.
  5. Scroll to the bottom and find the Request ID and the Software Key
  6. Click on the Start menu
  7. Click on All Programs
  8. Click on Accessories
  9. Click on Notepad
  10. In the Foxit window, select the 64-character Software key.
  11. Right click on your selection and choose Copy
  12. Click on the Notepad window.
  13. Click Edit->Paste
  14. Your 64-character Software Key will appear in Notepad.
  15. Edit that key so it’s all on one line, and remove all the hyphens.


Now, things are about to get real. PAY ATTENTION.


  1. Open up your flash drive, and double click on the keygen folder we made all that time ago. Be sure there are still two files in there – KeyGen.bat and KeyGen.class.
  2. Click on the Start menu
  3. Click Run
  4. Type C:\Program Files\GlobalTIS\tomcat\webapps\tis2web\WEB-INF\lib
  5. Click OK
  6. Drag KeyGen.bat and KeyGen.class from your flash drive into this window
  7. Close the flash drive window. Leave the other window – C:\Program Files\GlobalTIS\tomcat\webapps\tis2web\WEB-INF\lib, titled “lib” – open
  8. Click on the Start menu
  9. Click All Programs
  10. Click Acessories
  11. Click Command Prompt
  12. Type


cd\Program Files\GlobalTIS\tomcat\webapps\tis2web\WEB-INF\lib


and press Enter

  1. Find your Notepad window, the one where we edited that 64-character Software Key
  3. Click Edit->Copy
  4. Return to your Command Prompt window
  5. Type:





  1. Press the space bar ONCE
  2. In the top left corner of the Command Prompt window, click on the little command prompt icon
  3. Choose Edit
  4. Choose Paste
  5. The 64-character software key should appear on the command line
  6. WITHOUT PRESS ENTER, just start typing


>> key.txt


  1. Now, finally, press Enter
  2. More or less nothing should happen.
  3. Type




and press Enter


Your command prompt window will close. You can also close Notepad. You do not need to save the file in Notepad. We’re done with that.


Now, let’s get back to that registration.


  1. Find the C:\Program Files\GlobalTIS\tomcat\webapps\tis2web\WEB-INF\lib window, titled “lib” that we left open earlier. Look around in there for a text document called key and double click on it. There should be a short character string (your Subscriber ID), another 64-character string (your License Key), and “From Russia with Love.”
  2. Find the GlobalTIS icon on your desktop again, and double click on it. It should load much faster this time!
  3. Scroll to the bottom and locate Section 6, the Subscriber ID and License Key boxes.
  4. Copy and paste the strings from key.txt into the GlobalTIS registration window.
  5. Scroll down further in the GlobalTIS registration window and click Register License Key
  6. READ THE WARNING – it’s going to take some time – then press OK.
  7. HAHA – fooled you! It’s done instantly. Press the logout button.


Close all the windows. ALL OF THEM.


You are done. GlobalTIS is installed!



That’s all for GM Tech2 software installation.

Hope this helps you out.

5 Steps to Code a BMW F10 with BMW ENET E-sys

After reading all the coding below,  wait a while before coding! Please back up and restore your data , and proceed with the coding while you are backed up !!!


Note: The guide was translated from Korean. Credit to Mr.JIHUNX.



If you are ready to install all the coding programs and the coding cables, we will start coding in earnest. The coding is roughly done in the following order. It would be easier to understand the following outline after drawing the overall outline first.

  1. Connect your car and laptop to each other with a cable.
  2. Run the coding program to connect to the car (this is the process of connecting the coding program to recognize the car)
  3. Download coded data from my car to my laptop (eg download the data set to ‘Beep if the seat belt is released!’).
  4. Change the settings on my laptop and save them to my computer (eg change the setting to ‘Do not beep if your seatbelt is released!’)
  5. Upload the coding data you saved to my computer to the car.


Connect your car and laptop to each other with cables

First connect your vehicle and computer with the BMW ENET cable .

And turn on the vehicle start . If the vehicle is powered off when the coding can be communication is lost in the middle of coding, we recommend that you turn on the ignition coding. However, off the case of a DME / DDE module startup supposed to be (ACC On) Turn on the power only in the state code, which is the error How to resolve due to the DME / DDE module initialization , please refer to the article. It is recommended that you do not code DME / DDE modules.


Run a coding program to connect with cars

If you have connected the vehicle to the cable and started up as above , run the E-Sys Launcher .


Choose the code for your car from the Car Series . The code you choose here is a generic code name for your car. In other words, select F010 for a 5-Series sedan and F030 for an F30.


Tendeyo it is displayed if the program is executed, the following screen, press the connect button to connect to the vehicle .


Press the connect button to display the connection setting screen. You must select Target and Interface here . Code Name and E-Sys Target when usually call the model number of the vehicle may vary.

Please check the E-Sys access code I have uploaded and select the correct Target. If there are several F010s as below, you can choose the one with the latest version of Direct. Usually the latest version is at the bottom of the list.

In the Interface, select Connect via VIN .

Select Target and Interface and press Connect button.


If the vehicle is normally connected, the following message will be displayed. Click OK to close the window.



Download car-coded data to my laptop

On the left side of the program screen, if Expert Mode is not selected, select Expert Mode and select Coding .


Click the Read button in Vehicle Order.


Right-click on the FA folder and select Activate FA .


Press the Read SVT button on the right side of the screen .


The modules of the car are displayed in the SVT area.

As an example, let’s show you how to modify one coordinate. I want to change the coordinates of KOMBI the coordinates to the HUD_SPRACHEINGABE_ENABLEvalue of aktiv.


First locate the KOMBI module in the SVT area, select the CAFD with the green V icon on the left side of the KOMBI submenu, click the right mouse button and select Read Coding Data.


When you read the coded data on the vehicle, the following message will be displayed. Close button to close.



Change settings on my laptop and save it to my computer

CAFD will be changed to a folder, and another CAFD list will be created under it. Select the list, right-click, Edit FDLand select.


The FDL Editor screen will open . Enter coordinates in the search bar to find the desired coordinates . You can find some of the keywords by typing them without having to type in all the coordinates.


I found exactly the coordinate I wanted.

Let’s expand the folder of coordinates and change the value that this function now works. Expanding the Ausgelesen folder has nicht_aktiva value of. This value is the setting value of the existing function aktiv. To change this value to , press the right mouse button and press the Editbutton.


This will bring up the select box so you can select a value, then aktivselect it.


For some coordinates, you may need to enter a value directly instead of selecting it as above. After selecting Edit, Values from ECUenter the value in the lower area of ​​the screen and then click the Exit button on the right of the screen.


If you modified the value well, the save button at the top of the screen will be activated. This is not the step of storing the value in the vehicle, but the step of temporarily saving the value to the current computer. After saving, press the Back button to exit the FDL Editor screen.



Upload coded data from your computer to your car

Now it’s time to transfer the coding values ​​you temporarily saved to your computer to the vehicle. Code FDLButton.

Note: CodeThis is a button, not a Code FDLbutton. CodeButton is a button that initializes the coding.


I am transferring modified coding data from my computer to my car.


A message will be displayed indicating that the vehicle has successfully transferred the changed values ​​and completed without errors. Report 0 errorAnd if there is an error, there is a problem during coding, it is recommended to return the modified value to the original value.


Quitting coding

The coding is finished. Please make sure that the value you just edited is correct. There is no procedure to terminate the coding separately. Normally, the connection button that is clicked before will be changed to the disconnect button. Pressing the button or disconnecting the BMW ENET cable is not a big problem.

2 Methods to Install Volvo VIDA 2014D on Window 10 Tablet

VIDA is a catalog of parts with a variety of instructions and manuals. Also, diagnostics, maintenance and adjustment of some parameters will be available using DiCE .

Below is a small example of working with VIDA 2014D and Volvo DiCE , and also described TWO ways of installing TWO variants (original and repack) of VIDA on Windows 10 (also installed on Windows 8.1). Additionally, added options for solving common problems with / after installation and some useful settings.

(The document was translated from Russian forum)

Volvo VIDA 2014D is the last (not the last) file version of VIDA available locally, i.e. installed and running on a separate PC. Accordingly, available to a simple user.
Since the beginning of 2015, the program is only online!


Temporary workplace is ready.

Example of using VIDA + DiCE – diagnostics and error removal


Start, enter 4 to enter the EUR region.


We read the car.


The Diagnostics section, the Details tab.


The Diagnostics section, the Network tab.


The Diagnostics section, the Troubleshooting tab.
On the Troubleshooting tab, the module with errors is highlighted in red (green – everything is normal, gray – missing / not installed). Select it with the mouse, below it will be a list of errors. Select the line – the information about the error appears. With a double-click – a window opens with the expanded info. Before erasing – carefully read. Go to the Delivery tab , at the bottom there will be actions – Erase everything and Erase


The existing CEM module error.


The window with the expanded information by mistake and recommendations on elimination.


The existing error is nothing more than the LED license plate lights that I have installed. So, while these lamps are standing – there will be a fault, it does not lead to the device and it makes no sense to erase at the moment.


The Diagnostics section, the Reference tab.


Diagnostics section, Maintenance tab.


How to install Volvo VIDA 2014D on a PC with Windows 8.1 / 10 Pro / Core x86 / x64

-This instruction for installing VIDA 2014D from an .iso image (or from a folder) on a PC with Windows 10x86-x64 of all versions and versions (as of 08.10.2016). Suitable for Windows 8 of all versions and versions.
In Windows 7, install the usual way – run \ Install \ DVD \ Vida_dvdheader \ Main \ setup.exe
-If you have an image without the Russian language (and it is needed) – unpack the image by any archiver into a folder (for example VIDA2014D), download the archive at the end of the post , create the folder ru-RU in VIDA2014D \ DB , put the downloaded archive into it , you can start the installation.
-If the PC has 2GB of RAM, 20GB of hard disk space (3GB and 30GB for 2014D) and less, you need to unpack the image and make the appropriate changes to the file \ VIDA2014D \ Install \ DVD \ Vida_dvdheader \ Compinfo.ini , in the lines Win7MinValue = write 512 , in Win7 Recommend = write 5,000,000 (or erase one digit at the end), save.
-If the PC is shaken by unsuccessful attempts to install different versions of VIDA – it is necessary to prepare for the new installation, clean up the OS (uninstall the components VIDA, SQL, remove the remaining folders, remove the remaining keys in the registry).

Method 1

1 . Preparation.
There is nothing to install additionally, except as specified in this manual. Also, there is NO need to disable / stop any of the default components in Windows 10 (defender, firewall, etc.).
a ) Install the .NET Framework 3.5 from:
– Control Panel – Programs and Features – Turn Windows features on or off
In the Windows Components window , note .NET Framework 3.5 , then OK , the .NET Framework 3.5will be loaded and installed , you may need to restart. If already installed, go to the next step.
b) Insert the image into the virtual drive (in Windows 10 it is present by default) by double clicking on VIDA2014D.iso .
Open the explorer folder with the image.
c ) Run cmd from the administrator from the open folder with the image VIDA2014D:
– File – Open the command line – Open the command line as an administrator
Before finishing the installation DO NOT close the cmd window , we need it twice.


2 . Install and configure Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 .
Copy / paste into the cmd window and press Enter :


Wait until the installation is complete. You can check the correctness of the previous installation in:
– Start – All applications – Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 – SQL Server Installation Center – Tools – Installed SQL Server features discovery report
The default browser with the report will open. Look – there are two lines in the table (at the end of No, it should be), close the SQL Server Installation Center .


3 . Installation of VIDA 2014D .
Copy / paste OBE lines to the cmd window and press Enter :

set __compat_layer = WIN7RTM
“Install \ DVD \ Vida_dvdheader \ Main \ setup.exe”

Select VIDA All-in-one .
Choose only ONE language (install TWO languages ​​and switch them you can – see Method 2 ).
Accept the license agreement.
Choose the installation path. It is recommended to leave it as default.
Installation takes a long time. You can control in the Task Manager by the activity of the alba process . At the end of the installation, icons appear on the desktop.
Select in the pop-up window Internet , then Save , then Close , and again Close .
Refuse to reboot.
Close the cmd window .
4 . Treatment and first run.
Run 2014A-BD.exe from the administrator. If you changed the default VIDA installation path, change only the LETTER drive in the opened window (if you installed it to the root of another disk / partition). Select Install , VIDA Monitor should start after that , after some time its icon in the tray should have a green arrow instead of a yellow arrow.
In the pop-up window of the regular firewall, select Allow access for Java.
Start VIDA with the VIDA All-in-One icon on the desktop (or in the Start menu, or right-click on the VIDA Monitor icon in the tray).
If Internet Explorer prompts you to select and enable add-ins, enable it.
Enter in the fieldUsername : 4 for Europe region (others – 1, 2, 3).
Wait for IsoView to load .
Click the Vehicle Profile tab , enter the VIN code. There should be a car. If Write Access is denied – check and enter the VIN code manually (NOT through copy / paste).
Disable VIDA eUpdate in the Task Manager on the Startup tab , the Java ™ Platform SE binary line .
You can also disable VIDA Monitor from startup and run it as needed from the shortcut to Start – VIDA .
Adobe Reader XI, which was installed with VIDA, can be deleted (if you use another application for pdf or not needed).
Done, you can use.
* If the server does not start – after a while on the icon appears red “?”, The fault is the update KB3163018or 1607 AU . Download the archive with the folder jdk , unload VIDA Monitor, delete the folder jdk from C: \ VIDA , unpack downloaded to C: \ VIDA , then reboot the PC. Archive with the necessary, to solve this problem, you can download at the end of the post.
* If the Username field is NOT active– the tablet did not work, apply again (after unloading the VIDA Monitor ) carefully following all the conditions, then restart the PC. Another option is to unpack the contents of 2014A-BD.exe into C: \ VIDA by agreeing to the replacement. Start from the administrator C: \ VIDA \ patch \ filldb.cmd (previously unloading the VIDA Monitor ).

Method 2 (recommended)

– At the bottom of the post there is a link to the resource where you can download the ready version with the adaptation to the extreme update of Windows 10 and the ability to use two languages ​​- Russian and English. Contains an easy way to install with cmd files (nothing needs to be entered manually). Everything necessary for installation and normal operation on Windows 10 is already in the image.

Correction of the “cross” in the field “Communication tool”

If after starting, in the field “Communication tool” – a cross , you must run the reg.file from \ Install \ Utilson the image / disk with VIDA EnableIEHostingx86.reg or EnableIEHostingx64.reg (for x64 OS).
IE must be closed! Archive with the necessary files, to solve this problem, you can download at the end of the post.

Connecting and installing DiCE

If you plan to use Volvo VIDA DiCE:
– Connect the device to the OBD connector of the car (or supply it with power 5-12 V / 1-2 A suitable BP, dais does not get power via USB!).
– Connect it to the USB connector of the PC.
– Wait for the device to be installed in Windows.
– Start VIDA, make sure that DiCE is installed in the “Communication tool” field.
If you want to use DiCE on bluetooth (first necessarily connect via USB!), Run (corresponding to the bit depth of the OS) reg.file and search / add devices WT to the OS. The manual with the necessary reg.file for connection on bluetooth and driver for using DiCE without VIDA can be downloaded at the end of the post.
