Porsche PIWIS 3 Keygen Download Free + How to use

Free download keygen for VXDIAG Porsche Piwis III

https://mega.nz/#!CUYUlKYR!v9qgglhkXClmKizrVfCm3a33tId3wu1QS7LOvgxYQ1Y

Big thanks to Damien

How do you use the keygen:

This is the method you can try:

Make sure PIWIS is closed.  If it is open, right-click the Taskbar, and run Task Manager.  Select co.porsche.piwis.shell and End Task.

Click Start (WinKey) and type services.msc in the search box. Run services.msc. If the service is running, stop it.

If the Keygen is on the laptop, run it, and leave it open.

Run a Command Prompt.
At the Command Prompt, type:
WMIC BIOS GET SERIALNUMBER

Enter the Serial Number into the Keygen.
Enter the Country into the Keygen.
Change the Expiry Date to 01/01/2030.
The Dealer number is not important, but you can enter one if you know it (7 digit number).
Leave the Challenge Key blank for now.

Click Start (WinKey) and type services.msc in the search box.  Run services.msc
Change the AdminService startup to Automatic, and click Apply.
Click Start to start the service.

Run Piwis3.
Go to the Imprint section.
Enter 4 random digits into the Licence key boxes.
Tick the Accept box, and click License Update – it will say Not Valid – click OK.
Click Licence update twice more and OK.
The Request Key should have disappeared, and the Create Key button should be active – click it.
Place the mouse pointer at the bottom of the screen, and open the Keygen.
Enter the Request Key into the Challenge Key box, and click Generate.
Enter the licence key shown into the boxes on Piwis.  Tick the Accept box and click Licence update.
If successful, you should get a message to reboot.  Click OK, and the computer will shut down.

IMPORTANT!!

After starting the computer, open services.msc again.
Stop AdminService, set startup to Disabled.  You can now run Piwis.

You can also get the serial number by printing out the imprint request.
The snag with that is if you are imprinting a VM, it does not show the complete number.

(Credits to 911Turbo for his great contribution)

This is for your information.
If you don’t have a working PIWIS 3 program or the keygen is not working for you,
you’d better choose decent Piwis 3 software, tested version better

The circuit diagram in version 37.900 works perfectly even without online access. And whether the updates work now or not is only secondary, the main thing we have to play.

Lexia 3 full chip vs Diagbox vs Peugeot Planet PP2000

What the difference is among lexia 3 full chip, Diagbox and Peugeot Planet PP2000, which would be a good idea for a total newbie in car diagnostics software that lexia 3 full chip cable required.

Both Diagbox and PP2000 are used to connect to the car’s ECU and carry out diagnostics and manage settings. Which is a better software, however?

lexia 3 full chip: Citroen
Planet: Peugeot
Diagbox: Citroen & Peugeot

lexia 3 full chip3 – hardware
lexia 3 full chip – Software for Citroen
Planet – Software for Peugeot
Diagbox – Front end which contains variations of both of the above

Diagbox is the only one which is still updated.

The hardware is currently on Revision C.

Diagbox: newer, PP2000: quicker

PP2000 and Diagbox are roughly the same thing , Diagbox being the newer software ,

PP2000 is a quicker software but will become obsolete over the next few years as Peugeot will stop using it this year ,

no point in getting PP2000 then having to change to Diagbox

Peugeot Planet: easier and faster

I have planet and also being a newbie installed planet then diagbox they both worked fine though diagbox was a lot slower (you have to start diagbox then choose planet off the option list) so basically if its just for use on your own car then using planet on its own is easier and faster though if your going to attempt using the interface on other vehicles may as well install diagbox with planet and lexia 3 full chip

lexia 3 full chip + PP200 = Diagbox

lexia 3 full chip is for citreon

planet pp2000 is for peugeot

put both programmes into one software = diagbox

if your going to buy it you might asswell get diagbox which most new interfaces come with anyway.

Both lexia 3 full chip & PP2000 available within Diagbox

They are the same…. the discs supplied usually contain PP2000 and Diagbox on one disc (PP2000 is also available within the Diagbox installation), and lexia 3 full chip for Citroens on the other. lexia 3 full chip is also available within Diagbox.

So if you find an interface with rev C, the software discs will contain everything you need and more.

PP2000 on 32-bit, Diagbox on 64-bit

Planet will only run on 32-bit. Diagbox will run on 64-bit, but when you try to call Planet through Diagbox it will crash because it must have 32-bit.

What I do is install VMWare Player (free). Using that, create a virtual machine XP SP3 32-bit (you will need the disk and key). Then install Planet into that. Works well. Sounds very techy, but it is surprisingly easy, because VMWare is so well documented. When installing Planet, do not plug the lexia 3 full chip interface in to the PC until prompted.

Planet & Diagbox are software lexia 3 full chip cable required

The lexia 3 full chip is the cable required to use the software. Only the cable.

To use the cable you will need software as well, Peugeot Planet and Diagbox are the 2 pieces of software to choose from.

Diagbox is much newer software that supports even the latest cars. However I prefer the interface of Peugeot Planet, much easier not to get lost in there.

Generally when you buy a Mileage Correction lexia 3 full chip software will be included on a disk. As to whether it is genuine or not, you should check with the seller before purchase.

Xtool PS90, Foxwell GT80 plus, Autel MS908P, Launch V

Let’s talk about what I know about XTOOL PS90, Foxwell GT80 plus, Autel MS908P, Launch X431 V 8″. What special features, what they can do, is it good investment etc.

1.The reason to vote Xtool PS90:

Xtool-PS90
OK list:

– In English or German, it’s really great and there are no problems with it.
– I am using xtool ps90 is ok but the translation is poor even. Counts do the things that have a list of memory programmer works generally recommend.
– As for the PS90, I can update only in Polish and English.

I made injection programming in my Espace (2012) and everything went quickly and smoothly.

– In the VAG group in previous softkeys, it was possible to enter the option of byte options and program everything literally (as in VCDS).
– Generally, shortly after the purchase, the PS90 performed beautifully with the first versions of the softs.
– Ford quick reset is done, Nissan 20digit,Hyundai,Kia bypass are working.
– ps90 reset toyota new immobilisers using h-type chips incase all keys are lost, no 16 minute wait.

The claimed Xtool PS90 vehicle coverage

Fail list:
In Jaguar XJL (2014) I tried to calibrate the air suspension, unfortunately without success. (I did it with the device for 127PLN in 2 minutes).

Xtool PS90 Update:
Frequently free update on www.xtooltech.com, click on “Service & Support”, then “Update Notice”.

PS80 VS PS90:
PS80 (8inch tablet no wifi but all function) PS90 (10inch tablet with wifi and all function).

Now, Xtool also sell PS90 to China agent like www.obd2tool.com.

PS90 Vs Xtool X100 pad2:

I was told by a UK selkercthst the x100 pro pad 2 only covers 4 diagnostic systems whereas the ps90 covers more.

XTOOL X100 PAD2 function coverage: Eeprom, mileage, immobizier, obd2 scanner, and more

2.The reason to vote Autel ms908p:

ms908p

In any case, if the price difference is small, I would prefer Autel, bigger company and support, etc.

Autel Maxisys Pro MS908P reviews:

Quick processor speed and boot-up time:

It doesn’t seem to make a difference what model of car I hook it up to

The MaxiSYS (MS908) is the fastest (scan) tool I’ve ever used.”

It saves us time on every job we use it on with its quick boot-up time, ability to look at live data and ability to use bi-directional controls while not being bound by a cord.

Easy to use because of the manual included:

The MS908 system comes with the manual, which was loaded onto a CD. So it’s easy to use, there is little need for the manual.

It also included 12V and 120V chargers, a USB cable, non-OBD adapters, a strap/handle and a screen cleaning cloth.
According to both reviewers, the MS908 is easy to use. Even right out of the box, minimal setup was involved.

MS908 system good at update:

Once the scan tool arrived in the shop, the only i need to do is to register the device on Autel’s website in order to perform updates. If you choose to not update it, you can use it out of the box within five minutes.

Autel is really good about updating their tools. It’s a tool to check for updates like once a week, because as soon as Autel comes up with solutions, they put them on the internet for our users.It is kind of cumbersome to pick and choose the updates through the Autel Scanner, without having to hook it up to a computer, as the tool is fully Wi-Fi capable. It would be nice to set a profile of vehicles that you work on, or a sort by vehicles that you need…available updates on all vehicle makes and models, including European vehicles not serviced in the U.S.

I’ve updated mine on the road. It saves me a ton of time.

Advanced & function-able:

This MS908 offers 100-percent access on the anti-theft security systems, it allows me to send reports via Wi-Fi to another computer, it comes pre-loaded with direct links to repair info (AllData, Identifix, Mitchell 1, iATN, etc.) and that it stores vehicle histories and complete customer history, which can be retrieved through VIN auto-identification.

And I have used the tool for many advanced functions, which include performing diagnostics and resets on many vehicle makes and models and even programming keys. Have used a lot of OE scan tools before. Autel lays out data the same way OE scan tools are laid out. I am familiar with this setup logic, that if technicians are not familiar with a factory menu layout, this may be difficult for some users.
Perfect in auto key programming/module coding:

I used Autel MS908to program keys on several vehicle makes including Ford, Dodge, Nissan and VW. And also used it to diagnose a faulty PCM in a 2010 Dodge Ram and faulty headlight modules on 11 5 Series BMWs. After replacing the new module, it had to be coded and he also had to run reference for the adaptive headlights. The MaxiSYS performed flawlessly.

3.The reason to vote Launch X431

x431-v-8-inch

The price of all the same is still heard that the launch is cool and also at a similar price.

Launch X431 V 8″ tablet scanner for all makes should be a good investment. It can do more but sells as cheap as $759.
