How to make Xentry Passthru 12.2018 work with Actia XS 2G

I (@AfXv237) found and made Xentry Passthru 12.2018 to work with Actia XS 2G so I decided to share the way I made it run.

It also works with other passthru devices like KTS, Techstream VIM, VAS 5054A etc but I did not tested.
How to make Xentry Passthru 12.2018 work with Actia XS 2G
Xentry Passthru

Works only on X64, I tested on Win7 64bit.

Disclaimer: The guide for installation is just edited and adapted to Actia. I do not try to steal fame by this. I only spread the information which regards Actia and I strongly encourage you to buy it and make it work with all passthru programs since it has J2534-1 and J2534-2 protocols. It also has its own multibrand program made to work with latest updates. Please read the other thread I made for further infos.

Note: Xentry passthru software was designed to work mostly or only via CAN. It might not work on older models. I tested on DAS a 2003 W211 E240 (2.6 gasoline) and sees most of the modules. But on newer cars it must see pretty much every module.

I also tested, Actia xs 2g also works with forscan and toyota techstream.


Installation guide for Actia XS 2G (2nd generation):

You need the latest drivers for Actia. I installed them from 43.06 version

1.Prepare windows sp1 x64 as an administrator, UAC (user control) off.

– for Xentry Diagnostic Passthru use x64 only

2.Mount Xentry Passthru iso to virtual drive. Run “start.exe”. Finish. Restart

3.Extract medicines & replace. it will replace xentry missing pictures, dll for old keys loader, fix 2221-45 error, 3.91

error and install das license 0 day fix.

4.double click file “old key loader for configassist or startkeycenter 64bit.reg” in medicines and click “yes” to upload it to the registry. with this, now old key can be accepted by xentry.

5.Run configassyst to enter Xentry license key (mine gets valid only with internet off. after I succesfully put the key, I do not run configassyst with internet ON, otherwise the key get erased, but there is a fix for this as well for SCN online, which I do not have)

6.Prevents xentry’s key deleted and get “no access authorization code” when diagnosing while online.

1.X4711 Methods.

Purpose: Introduce by Rocinante in 2012. It prevents xentry’s key being deleted and it is SAFE FOR SCN Online Coding Xentry Internal Error (3.17)-3.175 “no access authorization code” after xenty diagnose while online

COPY C:\ProgramData\LicDir\lic_key_2.dat to the desktop, rename it to lic_key_2.x4711, and make this file READ ONLY MOVE it back into the directory C:\ProgramData\LicDir\.make sure the lic_key_2.dat file IS NOT read only while lic_key_2.x4711 file READ ONLY…

DAS Ignition On/Off enabler

Purpose: after coding or offline programming, DAS asks to ignition the vehicle off. do ignition vehicle off, but DAS is not recognized it and still asks ignition off.

2.when you want to use the floating menu on/off, and it is grey


copy IgnitionEnabler.exe to desktop, when you need, just run it and it will definitely activate/enable the floating ignition on/off menu in DAS.

New protocol:
The idea was that I made it work to diagnose/code/adapt via Xentry program with Actia. KTS540 has only J2534-1 protocol as far as I know. It might be good, but I have read that is capable of passthru, but is not “completely compatible with passthru” like Actia is.

Newer KTS560 and 590 are fully-passthru and DoIP.

“As early as 2009, Bosch provided with the KTS 540/570 communication modules that can still be used, with certain restrictions, for Euro 5/6.”

“KTS 560/590 can today be used with Euro 5/6 PassThru for the following vehicle manufacturers: Audi, BMW, Citroën, Ford, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Opel, Peugeot, Renault, Seat, Škoda, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo.”

” KTS560/590: Enable PassThru by working with OEM software Work with Diagnostics over Internet Protocol (DoIP)”

The cost for KTS560 is 1500EUR+VAT. It costs way too much since I already have it licenced on KTS540 and I don’t feel like being in need for an update. I bought Actia for further range of cars database.

I have tried actually an old car (DAS) with Actia via Xentry Passthru and it sees almost all modules on a W211 E240 2.6 gasoline. I attached photos in the info file. With Actia’s Multidiag program it works too. It covers all european cars and it can do lots of functions and stuff. The whole reason I bought Actia was because an X-klass came to me to delete airbag error and I couldn’t do it with any of Launch, KTS or Delphi (all genuine updated). So, I researched a bit, bought Actia and hit 2 birds. I have both Passthru and its own multibrand program which helped me out twice already, because it had functions that others didn’t. For me is money well spent. P.S: I didn’t try on X-Klass because the customer went to the dealer in the meantime, so I lost a potential customer.

In my personal opinion, KTS is good on newer cars like euro5 onwards. It knows plenty of stuff, but I wouldn’t pay 1500eur just for the hardware alone+ licence if you say it isn’t exactly what it is described. Delphi on the other hand is much more intuitive and use it mostly. Launch is always in my pocket and can diagnose anywhere via smartphone, but on some specific cars it returns strange values and I consider it a little bit less stable.

Each one has pros and cons, that’s why I have all of them and they cover 99,99% of cars that come to me

IF I try doing SCN coding, it does the same with this message:
