How to Update DoIP Xentry Connect C5 Software

Here’s the detail guide on how to update software of Mercedes Benz DoIP Xentry Connect C5 MB Star diagnostic scanner.  DoIP C5 comes with both internal hard drive and external Dell HDD .

 

Note:

1.The upgrade procedure fits for DoIP Xentry Connect C5 but no SD Connect C5 (SD C4 in C5 case).

2.

If you have XDOS 2018.3 or  2017.9 not working well, you should update it to version 2018.7.

If you have XDOS 2018.5 works good, it’s not necessary to update to 2018.7.

3. If you feel complicated to update the firmware by yourself.  You can send both Doip C5 HDD and Dell HDD to us to run an upgrade.

WIS error “No write access for installation folders”

When I started installation of MB Star diagnostic WIS standalone 01/2012 on DAS 03/2012 (clean install) on Windows Xp Pro ENG with 1G virtual drive. i did standalone key first, and used 1st DVD and used SDSwitch.
i got the error message “no write access for the specified installation folders ! ”

wis-no-write-access

First, share some tips/ solutions i found on forums:

  1. Extract all the images in a folder for each dvd

Or use the virtual drive and mount the 2 images

Use pwr iso Kolo

 

  1. First install WIS standalone

As a part of MB SD Connect C4 DAS x 2012

Then mod d2ksetup

 

  1. Un-Install ANYTHING > Use the CleanEWAInstallation.vbs> Reboot > DELETE any Folders witch they remain > Re-Install again!

Good luck

Cheer2

 

Then i found the problem is “Information at 15:36:43 : Executing in CMD: cacls C:\Programme\ewa /T /E /G U|_ytkownicy:F

 

WIS installer did not recognize diacritics – should be “Użytkownicy” not “U|_ytkownicy”

 

So I changed name “Użytkownicy” to other word without diacritics – for example to “Users” or “Uzytkownicy”. To solve it, ran compmgmt.msc and went to “Users and local groups” ->”Groups” and rename “Użytkownicy”.

 

Finally SOLVED!

 

It is said that it’s possible to install standalone WIS on any language version of WINXP.
