New Jaguar and Land Rover Diagnostic Tool JLR VCI+JLR DoIP VCI support Pathfinder and SDD software

VCX-PLUS is a  a new generation of integrated automotive diagnostic equipment.A device can support both Pathfinder and SDD software at the same time. That is, a device can replace the JLR VCI+JLR DoIP VCI combination.It can reduce the cost of maintenance and operation for the users. It can be completely replaced.

Note: We will install Pathfinder and SDD software

1.The Pathfinder software(You must have a online account to work with it,we don’t offer)
It is the only unit that will be compatible with the Pathfinder software and all JLR vehicles with the new vehicle architectures found in 2018 and newer vehicles (from the Range Rover/Range Rover Sport L405/L494). In addition to the 2018 and newer vehicles, the DoIP VCI will also be capable of interfacing with 2014 through 2018 Multi-CAN architecture vehicles (see application list below).
2.The SDD software(If you want to do programming ,you must have a online account)

All 2014-2018 with no DOIP and earlier (2006 to 2014) land rover and Jaguar will still use the SDD JLR software.

The new Land Rover scanner Interface named DOIP.

This new interface would be needed for all 2018 land rover and Jaguar vehicles.

The JLR DoIP VCI is the newest interface for Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles. It is the only unit that will be compatible with the Pathfinder software and all JLR vehicles with the new vehicle architectures found in 2018 and newer vehicles (from the Range Rover/Range Rover Sport L405/L494). In addition to the 2018 and newer vehicles, the DoIP VCI will also be capable of interfacing with 2014 through 2018 Multi-CAN architecture vehicles (see application list below). Vehicles 2014 and older vehicles not detailed here will continue to use the current diagnostic system and VCIs.

DoIP VCI Applications:
· XE (X760)
· F-Pace (X761)
· F-Type (X152)
· XF (X260)
· XJ (X351) – 16MY only
· Evoque (L538)
· Discovery Sport (L550)
· Range Rover (L405)
· Range Rover Sport (L494)

All 2014 and earlier (2006 to 2014) land rover and Jaguar will still use the SDD JLR software for diagnostics and reprogramming.
The mongoose, Bosch and j2534 VCI would be only used with SDD software.
The new DOIP is not compatible with SDD software.

How to make Xentry PassThru work for New Models (Euro56, W205, W213, W222)

Something good to help you to make Xentry PassThru on Windows 10 x64 support new Mercedes models (Euro5/6, W205, W213, W222). Done with VAS 5054A PassThru Driver

Xentry PassThru needs to be installed on Windows x64 to support new models, such as Euro5/6, W205, W213, W222 … However, VAS5054A didn’t work on 64bits as passthru. There is 64bits device driver for VAS5054A but there is no PassThru driver working on 64bits. You may try Actia driver instead but this is a patched 32bits PassThru API files with 64bit device drivers working on Windows 10 x64. Xentry recognizes it and works with W205 (confirmed), etc.

WARNING: Use it on your own risk, only for test purpose.

What you need:
(1) VAS5054A Bluetooth hardware. (genuine and good clone… both ok)
(2) (option) VAS5054A EDIC_PDU_API 1.20.4x driver installation file. You can find it somewhere on this forum.
(3) (option) New firmware. The firmware included here is version 1.20.41 for better compatibility, not 1.20.42.
(4) Softing_VAS5054A_PassThru_Driver_x64_v3.zip (attached here)
(5) 64bit Windows 10
(6) (option) DC 12V power adapter, 2 jumper wires for temporary power.

Pre Installation:
(1) Install Xentry PassThru and do all patches.
(2) (option) Install EDIC_PDU_API 1_20_42 driver (or EDIC_PDU_API 1_20_41). It’s for installing .NET framework or VC++ redistribution files.

If you are going to do clean install on fresh Windows 10, you might want to install the EDIC_PDU driver first. It installs .NET framework, VC++ files, some EDIC DLLs on /Windows/System32 or SysWow64. Other files will be overwritten by the below manual installation.

Installation:
(1) Copy “Program Files (x86)\Softing\*” to your HDD “C:\Program Files (x86)\Softing\*”
(2) Copy “Program Data\D-PDU API” to your HDD “C:\Program Data\D-PDU API”.
(3) Double click on “Softing_VAS5054A_PassThru_1_20_042.reg” and install it.
(4) Make a shortcut of “SftngCM.exe” on Desktop.
(5) Right click on “C:\Program Files (x86)\Softing\EdicDriver\win7\softingedic7_ntamd64.inf” and install.
(6) Connect the VAS5054A hardware using an USB cable. Connect it to a temporary power(12V DC adapter) or OBD-2 port.
(7) Check “Control Panel/Devices Manager/Softing…”. If not installed correctly, update the device driver manually.
(8) Make a shortcut of “EDICConfig.exe” on Desktop.
(9) (option) If you have newer version than EDIC_PDU_API 1_20_42 driver and genuine VAS5054A hardware, you may install the API driver now.

Post Installation:
(1) Connect the VAS 5054a to a temporary power(12V DC adapter) or ODB-2 port.
(2) Run “SftngCM.exe” on desktop as administrator. Make a “C:\Temp” directory if not exists. This is for saving log files. If not exists, SftingCM.exe will cause error when doing test.
(3) Choose “VAS5054A” and type the serial number (maybe 0821xxxxx).
(4) Select “Test” and click on “Start Test”.
– RED dot : PC <-> VAS5054A does not communicate. Something wrong on your driver.
– YELLOW dot : PC <-> VAS5054A communicates.
– GREEN dot : PC <-> VAS5054A <-> Vehicle communicates.

Tip:

(1) “.NET Framework 2.0/3.0/3.5” needs to be installed if not installed automatically. You can install it by selecting on “Control Panel/Programs and Features/Turn Windows features on or off/.NET Framework 3.5(includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0)”. You also need to install VC++ redistributions if not done yet. (MSVCR100.dll, mfc100.dll, … errors)

(2) Temporary power to VAS5054A for test purpose : Ground to either pin 4 or 5. 12V DC to pin 16.

(3) You can upgrade the EDICDriver in “Program Files (x86)\Softing\EDICDriver” if you have newer version. Update the device driver on control panel.

(4) If you installed newer version EDIC_PDU_API driver than 1.20.42, edit the *.reg and change the number 1_20_42 to your number (for example, “EDIC_D_PDU_API_1_20_042” to “EDIC_D_PDU_API_1_20_0XX”). After editing, double click on it and install it again.

(5) If your device has different serial number but SftngCM.exe doesn’t allow the change, edit the *.reg file with text editor, double click on it and install it again.
