it will take a while! don’t turn off the computer and don’t worry about the incompatibility messages that windows will show you during the installation process specially for the SQL 2005 server installation.
4.after completing the installation of the SA4.0 reboot the computer and set back the system time to mars 2016.
5.mount the first iso image of the data discs to a virtual drive, browse the sauce folder and run setup file as administrator; wait for it to complete the installation it will launch the SA 4.2.005 at this step you may have a message that the SA 4.2.005 is not capable of launching the search engine don’t worry close it and go to task manager (ctr+alt+sup)

7.now go to the task manager again and look for the SAupdater service and disable it.
8.re-open the service advisor, click the accept button for the license agreement, and configure the path for the data access you can use the mapping for a virtual drive choice to map each data disc image to a virtual drive it will take more than an hour to load all the data disk.
it will ask you for scheduling the update choose the end of the week and create the task.
9.Now close the SA, use the activator again but this time just use the prolongation tool choose 9000 days or whatever you want.
10.Look for the task scheduler and run it, choose the SAupdate task and modify the time for the task to begin to 2030 or whatever you want.

What we didn’t like
Beware of counterfeit products – one of the challenges of buying Launch X431 pro mini scan tool is that there are counterfeit products on the market. So, it is important that you purchase a scan tool from an authorized dealer to avoid being duped.
Poor customer service – many clients have complained that the customer support at Launch takes time to respond to customers queries. This is very frustrating especially if you need urgent help.
Cumbersome to use – this is not an ordinary scan tool for startup mechanics or DIYers. It is complicated to use as it requires the user to start by registering the gadget. This is time-consuming and you cannot use the scan tool directly from the box.
The Launch X431 pro mini diagnostic scanner is constructed for professional mechanics and small car repair shops. It performs a wide range of functions and it is compatible with different vehicle makes and models. Moreover, the scanner comes with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi function for a wireless connection.

We have customer confuse about the MB Star C4 laptop issue. What laptop should i use and why Dell D630 laptop is most used? Can i use other laptops with SD Connect C4?
Solution from obd2tool
It depends on which format HDD you choose to buy
If you buy Dell D630 internal hard drive/solid drive (we only have D630 format internal HDD currently), you should install internal HDD on Dell D630 laptop ONLY.
If you buy external HDD, there is no laptop limitation. But make sure your laptop meets the requirement.
Star diagnostic External HDD/SSD laptop requirements:
better with COM port, if it does not have COM port, you can buy Z-TEK USB1.1 to RS232 Convert Connector (if use MB Star C3) to transfer.
If you use laptop lower CPU2.0 with external HDD, the HDD works but runs rather slow. BTW,external HDD does not support WiFi wireless connection.
Both our customer and engineer tested and verified Dell D630 laptop is the most safe option.
Our Dell D630 configuration:
Screen Size: 14.0
Memory (RAM): 2000 Processor Type: Intel Core 2 Duo
Primary Drive: DVD+/-RW Processor Speed: 1.80 GHz
Processor Configuration: Dual Core
Can somebody help me? I bought the Mercedes-Benz SD Connect C4 diagnostic system. Then the first cat (real car) I hooked up to this is what came up.
Solution shared by customer:
I fixed it.
Updated firmware in MB SD C4 interface and new key.

Model: Hyundai i30 year 2008 with 220,000 KM
Check engine light turns on and detected a P0420 fault code (P0420: Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1)).
I don’t feel anything wrong with the output or the engine. The lambda value was slightly higher in the second year overall test. This was also due to the end muffler corrosion.
First attempt (using cheap Bluetooth OBD dongle):
I checked the fault (or diagnosis) DTC code using Bluetooth OBD2 dongle bought last year. But I also learned that the code could not be read if it was not a fault in progress. I checked that the wheel and steering related trouble codes were floating in the ‘Comprehensive Certificate of Automobile Functions’ which I received after the inspection at the comprehensive inspection center, but I could not confirm it with the Bluetooth OBD2 code reader at all. I also used it on the Santa Fe CM. I found out that the parts were bad and sometimes I could not read the trouble code during normal operation.
As the day gets warmer, the body changes and the car becomes something different. The OBD2 Bluetooth scanner that I used was not able to find where it disappeared and I am expecting what the reason is, but I am afraid because I can not check it, and then I buy a proper one. I tried to buy a scanner with a screen-oriented text, and eventually, I decided to get a Autel diagnostic system.
Second attempt (using Autel MaxiDiag MD808):
It can be seen that the car which has been released recently has many functions required for setting.
The picture below is a picture that is connected with a PC, but it is the same when connecting with a vehicle using an OBD2 cable. If you connect the PC with USB or if the key is not connected to the car, turn it on when you connect it. If you turn the key off or ACC, connect the diagnostic to the car and then turn the key position to ON or start. No diagnostic code is generated. If you do not follow this, your C # code will generate C1623 code.
The function of each menu is …
SCAN : You can read and erase the fault code for each manufacturer, model, and model of a specific vehicle, or check the value output by the vehicle through OBD2.
SERVICE : Performs special functions supported by the scanner. Battery reset (BMS), oil change reset, steering angle sensor (SAS) reset, EPB (electronic parking brake) re-learning, diesel DPF function, throttle position sensor reset etc.
OBDII : Read and clear the fault codes of certain items, or check live data.
SETUP : You can select the setting of the diagnostic unit, the language, the unit, and the beep sound.
PLAY BACK : Play back live data saved during vehicle diagnosis.
UPDATE : After using the USB cable to update the device diagnostics, after the initial purchase, there was no corresponding menu, but this menu was created after plugging the MicroSD card into the PC or notebook reader, and from this time you do not have to plug the MicroSD card directly into the PC reader Directly updated via cable. You need to update immediately after purchase or periodically. The update seems to be quite a lot.
First, select SCAN to select the sales region of the vehicle manufacturer. The same maker has different specifications and models depending on the region in which they are sold. To choose a Hyundai that sells to Korea, you have to choose Asian. You have to choose USA to choose Hyundai which is sold to the US.
Select the vehicle production area and select the
If you select Control Units without Auto Scan, you can scan each device.
So I scanned my 2008 i30 (FD) 2.0 model and it shows up.
It is a diagnostic code related to steering or VDC. I suppose that it was the maintenance of the lower body at the key ON state anyway.
The picture above shows the live data saved and played back. Of course, you can connect to the vehicle to check in real time … You can also save, you can also play the picture as shown below. Saved data can be sent to PC in text form after connecting with PC.
First of all, I erased all fault codes diagnosed to my car i30 …. I drove for about 2 weeks.
The P0420 does not disappear, it is erasing even if erased, and the fault codes related to steering or VDC no longer display.
I will use the Autel MD808 Pro scanner for a while and use it with confidence.
