This is for the error message: “Windows cannot open this file” on Windows 10 when download Forscan extended license

I use WIN XP on my Laptop. NO problems with Extended License…

But I see some people got problems with WIN 10 …

The error message can be: “Windows can not open this file”

I installed Forscan on my PC running WIN 10…and yes there is a Problem with actuating the extended license…

This is what I did…

Download the extended license…make a new folder and name it License. Put the extended license .key file in to that folder.

Go to Windows (C:) and find the FORScan Folder… Mine was in Program Files (x86)

Paste the ” License Folder ” in to FORscan…

Or: Right click on ForScan shortcut, Properties, Open File location…put License Folder in there.

Next:

Open the FORscan program

How do I download the latest firmware to my INLINE 6 or INLINE 5 adapter?

This indicates that the adapter has experienced a failure or the memory was corrupted while trying to download new firmware to the adapter. Try removing power and reapplying it, waiting for several seconds to see if the adapter resumes normal operation. If it doesn’t, try downloading the latest software, carefully following instructions on the INLINE 6 software download web page or the INLINE 5 software download web page. If this also fails to work and the adapter is still under warranty, contact your authorized Cummins distributor.

3.Why doesn’t my INLINE 6 or INLINE 5 adapter work with INSITE version 5.4 or other older Cummins software applications?

Versions of INSITE earlier than 6.3 may not be RP1210 compatible. Since the INLINE 6 and INLINE 5 adapters use the RP1210 protocol, they will only work with software that supports the RP1210 protocol. Visit the Compatibility pages on this site to determine what versions of Cummins software applications are compatible with RP1210 and the INLINE 6 and INLINE 5 adapters.

4.Will the INLINE 6 and INLINE 5 adapters work with my QuickCheck III software?

The INLINE 6 and INLINE 5 adapters will not work with the QuickCheck III software.

5.Will the INLINE 6 and INLINE 5 adapters work with non-Cummins RP1210-compatible software applications?

As long as these non-Cummins software applications are truly RP1210-compliant, the Cummins INLINE 6 and INLINE 5 adapters will work with them. However, some non-Cummins applications have proprietary features that make them not fully compliant with the RP1210 standard and they will not work properly with the INLINE 6 and INLINE 5 adapters. Test the application with an INLINE 6 or INLINE 5 adapter to verify compatibility.

6.How do I download the latest PC driver for my INLINE 6 or INLINE 5 adapter?

Download the latest PC driver for your adapter. Note that the INLINE 6 driver and INLINE 5 driver are different and you must use the correct driver for your adapter.

7.How do I download the latest firmware to my INLINE 6 or INLINE 5 adapter?

Download new firmware from the Software Downloads section of this page. Before you download the firmware, verify that the version is newer than what is already in your adapter, which you can find by double-clicking on the INLINE 6/5 tray icon on your computer. Note that you will need the Flash reprogramming utility described below to reprogram firmware in the INLINE 4 and INLINE 5 adapters. Note that the INLINE 6 firmware and INLINE 5 firmware are different and you must use the correct firmware for your adapter.

8.Why am I having issues with the DEF gauge?

INLINE 4: Use Driver Version 5.7.0.1, which has version 4.47 of the firmware.
INLINE 5: Use Driver Version 5.7.0.1, which has version 5.47 of the firmware.

9.How do I know my Inline adapters compatibility?

INLINE 5 and 6 are compatible with both PowerSpec and Insite.
PowerSpec versions of 4.2 and later support the RP1210 protocol and are thus compatible with the INLINE 6 and INLINE 5 adapters. See the chart below for an example of the basic connections needed to hook-up to the vehicle data link.
INSITE versions of 7.5 and later are compatible with the INLINE 6 and INLINE 5. Note that INSITE versions earlier than this are not fully RP1210B compliant and may not work with these adapters. See the chart below for an example of the basic connections needed to hook-up to the vehicle data link.

10.Does Cummins Support other RP1210 Devices with their Electronic Service Tools?

Heavy Duty Truck Scanner Tool like INSITE and Fault Viewer are RP1210 compatible but adapters other than those Cummins adapters are supported by the companies that produce them. The Electronic Service Tools help desk will help diagnose tool issues, however, it is highly recommended any communication issues with non-Cummins adapters should be brought to the adapters support group first before calling Cummins. In most causes, the issue is known or they have a fix they can give you to work around a problem until a driver update is available.

What do you personally use DTS Monaco for?

DTS Monaco is a program for softening. Mercedes-Benz is dealing with some company for developing some some software’s for the control units fixed on the cars. check the web side of this company and you will understand what they are doing. My advise to you if you want to play with this program you need to be expert with the vehicles software and programming other wise you will destroy it.

For many, DTS is the best software used on cars.
Coding works very good an easy, because for all coding-points it shows a “coding description”. With Vediamo you can not sort the list and have to make “right click” on any coding-point to read the description.
So, if you search for special things or “browse” through the functions in the ECU, Monaco is more comfortable.

Btw, vediamo unlocks units same as dts. Monaco can save codings in one click and upload them in one click too especially on MVCI smr-d units, which vediamo cant handle. Quite useful, but requires quite powerful system

Any good success with star mercedes DTS Monaco?

1) Mercedes W205 coding with DTS Monaco: Done!
2) I successfully connected to ZGW221 w/o car
DTS Monaco always sends a notification that it is impossible to contact the EIS221 to read the mileage, voltage, etc. (because w/o car)
3) I use both DTS Monaco & Vediamo, I can do tons of customizing settings on All MB cars; some of them are hidden by MB but very useful and cool.

For example ,
1. ALL vehicle which equip with dual multifunction camera, I could enable Traffic Sign Assist if your car does not have this function. Because MB hide it and they could sale the function for money in the future.
2. ALL vehicle which equip with parking radar sensor, I could set Alarm sound frequency related to the distance to the obstacle, instead of stock only make Alarm sound at the red zone( 30cm ). We call it synchronization.
3. ALL vehicle which equip with 360 camera, I could change the disable speed ( Distract screen engage), allow you can have more time or view around at higher speed.
4. Change temp. pressure gauge unit on cluster and Command Online ( C<->F , psi<->bar <->kpa, hp(SAE or DIN), N m <-> lb ft).
5. Disable Distract protection( allow VIDEO IN MOTION, spell input to Navi, Message while moving, and more ) Do not use them when you are driving!
6. Remove E-speed limiter, and also you can enable a menu called Winter Tire Speed Limiter on cluster, and you can choose how fast you dont want to pass, as low you can set 160km/h=100mph).
7. Adding some equipments when the car does not have them installed from factory, even transplant some from other model. ( But you need pay a lot to buy those parts compare to buy options installed by factory when they build the car. And for installation some of them are not easy as plug and play.).
8. Enable Blue Welcome home light for W beginning VIN W205 equip with Dynamic Head Light (IHL) without changing headlight assembly, 55SWF beginning…NVM, also vehicle has SA Code 608( Automatic High Beam Switch) could upgrade to Code 628 (Automatic High Beam Switch Plus) If you has dual multifunction camera.
9. Upgrade all control unit software without online daimler account, also you could downgrade.
10. Too many….
11. In general, all ppl talk about some setting or function they dont like and they want to change, I believe 99% of them can be achieved. 1% is still no solution for Apple Car Play and Android Auto for W205 before MY2018 without swapping Command Online Unit.

I would say, with those two software I could even build a car from every single pieces (IF PARTS FIT ). even the model does not exist( create a new car for MB ).
XENTRY can not do to much, compare those two software, its a baby toy.

HOW WILL THE GM MDI BE USED?

HOW WILL THE GM MDI BE USED?

The new GM MDI can be used only in the Pass-Thru method. This means you can use it as your programming tool, while your Tech 2/CANdi remains available for diagnostics and other duties.

The GM MDI is initially being introduced with Pass-Thru programming capabilities only. It can be used to perform Pass-Thru programming on all vehicles built since 1996 and will support all vehicles into the future.

The GM MDI will be required to perform diagnostics on selected NAO vehicles for model year 2009. Diagnostic software is scheduled to be released for the GM MDI during the fourth quarter of 2008.

Regulations require programming procedures to be compliant with SAE Recommended Practice J2534. The GM SPS is compliant with SAE Recommended Practice J2534, and the GM MDI is compliant with the portions of SAE J2534 that are applicable for GM vehicles.

What protocols does the GM MDI support?

For immediate use — At present, vehicles have two buses on the 16 pin connector
(high speed and low speed GMLAN). The GM MDI communicates using all of the existing GM protocols, the same as the Tech 2:
– UART
– Class 2
– KWP2000
– GMLAN (CAN)
Beginning with the 2008 model year vehicles, Pass-Thru will be the only programming method available. (Remote will continue to be available for previous vehicles.)

(Solved) VXDIAG VX Manager license expiration 12/31/2020

Got everything up and running. I noticed the VX Manager license showed an expiration of 12/31/2020. That about right?

Replied:
Yea, about right, and when I was setting up TIS2000 and upgraded the license for it, noticed that it was slightly longer date than the initial nano license to start with when I was setting up T2w. So got a feeling that is only upgrades the license for so long from a given date,, but if you go in later, it will further the license by the same time frame for a later date instead.

The only really downside I see, is in GDS2 for the GM MDI side of things, and wondering if there is going to be any updates to the cracked version. Hence in GDS2, GM global 2016.4.0 , the latest corvette is the 2016 model, with nothing listed for 2017, nor 2018 models.

With any luck, they get the on cloud version completed for GM, and it will either have the updates, or at least allow you to use the online version for the 2017 and later GM models instead.

If you did not see the cloud version, go to VX manager, to the far right tab, and will bring you up to speed.
