WIS from DAS: WIS is not available on this system

Topic: WIS from DAS not run

I installed WIS Standanlone 07/16 on XDOS 09/16.

WIS works good from desktop and from Xentry, but when i try start WIS from DAS i have error: “wis is not available on this system”

WIS is not available on this system


WIS Standalone works just perfect from Xentry and DAS,..from desktop icon too!

But there is one condition for the system that lots of people dont use,..or dont understand!

Some years ago Daimler start to link WIS documents through Xentry system properties!

This way all documents will be shown only if xentry is running,..and DAS was called through Xentry!

Forget DAS standalone exe,..it is easy to be used without runing xentry,..but it cannot link documents to WIS,SD media and TIPS

Another good tip: WIS not run in DAS help

Insert this folder (WIS_LINK) in

F:\Programm\DAS\Trees\PKW\Programm and


Before you make it rename the original folder.

And goto SDNC-Konfiguration-Server

mark Offline (WIS Standalone)

I hope it will help.


When Xprog Unknown command. Software error,how to do

Xprog error: Unknown command. Software error

Solution: exchange your Xprog CPU with a new chip

Xprog-Unknown-command-(1) Xprog-Unknown-command-(2) Xprog-Unknown-command-(3) Xprog-Unknown-command-(4) Xprog-Unknown-command-(5)

Tools you need:

A working Xprog-m programmer

A high-quality Atmega64 repair chip

Note: you need different Atmega64 repair chips for different xprog versions you wanna update to.

The chip for the newest Xprog v5.70 and v5.60 is not available now.

It can be got with Xprog programmers only!

Xprog v5.70 here:


Allscanner VXdiag multi diagnostic tool Feedback

Hello guys,I do a review on the Allscanner VXdiag multi diagnostic tool (Ford/Mazda/Honda/JLR/Toyota/Subaru).

I own one of them with licence for Ford/Mazda/Honda/JLR.

VXDIAG multi diagnostic tool Ford/Mazda

I’ve been having problems using it with Ford/Mazda IDS at first but now I’ve come to a point where I succeed using it for programming Ford/Mazda cars.

To be honest… that’s the only function I was looking for…. Programming or reprogramming Ford/Mazda modules but I had honda & JLR licence for 10$ extra so I went for it, but Honda HDS software that works with it is very old… (3.014…useless) and I feel safer to run JLR with my cardaq+


I think that’s the main reason I wasn’t able to program module with it… now that I only use VCM2 driver, it’s working.

I’m making a list of the functions I tried and the result of these tests.

2005 Ford Five Hundred (3L)Ford IDS 101.4 (VM)

GEM module reprogramming – SUCCESS

2008 Mazda 3 (2L)Mazda IDS 103.02

PCM module reprogramming – SUCCESS

2007 Ford Expedition (5.4L)Ford IDS 101.4 (VM)

DSCM module installation (PMI) – SUCCESS

LTM Liftgate/trunk module reprogramming – SUCCESS

PCM module reprogramming – FAILED (had to use FMP)

Edit : Allscanner confirmed the problem with 5.4 engine

In summary,

Xprog is a good universal programmer for various chips and MCUs in automotive.

But if you can pay more, i suggest you to buy vvdi prog

Tip: VVDI PROG vs Xprog-m vs R270 vs Orange5 clone:

  1. faster to clear 35080, 080D0, 160D0 (within 10S)
  2. more stable than Xprog-m to read MC9S12 series chips
  3. faster to attack MC9S12series chips
  4. less error than Orang5 to read some EEPROM that Orange 5 fail to recognize
  5. with voltage attack function for use
  6. with CAN bus,K-Line for use

So, VVDI Prog should be the best solution for ECU programming.

It covers chips that Xprog supports, works with less error than Orange 5, has the function of r260+r270

BMW X3 E83 Steering Angle Learning by Launch X431 V (x431 pro)

 Post Topic: step – by -step procedure on how to do bmw x3 e83 steering angle learning with Launch x431 v diagnostic tablet.

Tools to prepare:Launch X431 pro 

Launch X431 pro function:

After the replacement of steering angle sensor, it is necessary to encode the steering angle sensor, then adjust it.

Launch X431 pro

Operation procedure:

Select Manually select-> x series-> x3_e83-> chassis
