@i860

Is this the full Star Diagnosis System or a Xentry standalone? Since you have the simulation working does that mean you can now also connect to a suitable car to test?

Is the full version of 99GB, but in this C3 is not supported, only C4.
I was just curious to see if i can manage to make it run.
I have a dedicated laptop for diagnostic, but I don't want to fire that up when I feel to play a simulation.
They have a w7 version of xentry but is 2016 which supports c3, again I need an adaptor, this laptop doesn't have a com port so, I am sticking with dell.

Now that you have it installed and you know what you did that worked and didn't work to get it functioning, how easy would it be to repeat? It's obvious you know your way around the Win OS and the hardware pretty well. Does it end up still being a lot of work and probably outside the scope of the typical do-it-yourself type of person? Does it require all the separate disk drive partitions like the typical Dell 630 systems have? Thanks

In my case yes I had to resize C, but I didn't want to lose data, is not so complicated once you know what can trigger an error.
The installation time is very long and after waiting hours the system can rollback at 99% quite frustrating.
Beside that is obtaining the key and all the patches to fix the startup.

You just answered my next question - whether patches were needed. Thanks

..you could use a Virtual Machine for simulation - thats what I do ...

There are plenty of PtoV (Physical to Virtual) converters around too, so you could take a copy of your existing setup ... mine runs on a Hyper-V box ...

Not as much fun though!!

Lost a lot of my time installing xentry 03 2018 (this can be run on any laptop no more dedicated laptop) ... but is fully working also bought a new toy sd connect c4 ( hit and miss not as stable like my old c3 mux).
DAS is working on my slk + dev mod
Xentry working also on my w204.
Paid for an online session on MB servers and I check my car software on my slk I didn't touch the engine ECU as I have a remap and the transmission is up to date, no new software.
On w204 the transmission is up to date also but I update the ecu engine, the first time when I did this and it worked >:D
So now I am able to update software on different ecu's.

Lots of us r170's on here, it's just who is closest, unfortunately I'm not as you could of had a play on mine. I'm sure you'll find someone close to home. Good luck.

If ever the Dorset tour appears, I suspect you are going to need a tent.


There'll be a queue up the road for ECU, diagnostic, fog lights etc


BE warned, Dorset is a very likely destination in the longer term.
Ask @frogfoot how his spannering skills get utilised on our tours.
HE even has a flashing amber roof light now. :D
