DiagBox 8.xx Upgrade & How to Update
This post is superseded by DiagBox 8.01 Installation here:
http://cartechnology.co.uk/showthread.php?tid=13539

This procedure and the software provided are intended for personal, educational and experimental use to upgrade from DiagBox version 7.xx to 8.xx only. I hold no responsibility for any illegal or improper usage. Carry out this procedure at your own risk.

If you don't have DiagBox 7.xx already installed, install DiagBox 7.01, perform internet update to 7.02 and use v7.xx-7.57 upgrade or any version that has "C:\AWRoot\dtwr\cfg\config.sys". Once you have an operational 7.xx start from here:

Installing DiagBox 8.01
1- Stop all DiagBox services and rename "C:\APP" to "C:\APP7" and "C:\AWRoot" to "C:\AWRoot7" and restart your computer.
2- Install 8.01, it will create a new "C:\APP" and "C:\AWRoot" but it will stop at requesting User Name and Password, close it.
3- Stop all DiagBox services again and rename "C:\AWRoot" to "C:\AWRoot8" and "C:\AWRoot7" to "C:\AWRoot", restart computer.
4- Start DiagBox application, it will continue the DiagBox 8.01 installation.
5- When finished, close DiagBox and restart it to ensure it is working and no updates are needed, it will report the Version 7 you used.
6- Stop all DiagBox services and rename "C:\AWRoot" to "C:\AWRoot7" and "C:\AWRoot8" to "C:\AWRoot".
7a- Ensure (through Control Panel Add Remove) you have VC++ 2008 (preferably Microsoft.VC80.CRT" version="8.0.50727.762) is installed.
7b- Download and run the attached "AWRoot_v7_files_for_v8.exe" tool (it will perform file copy and backup, you can ignore points 8 and 9 now).
8- Navigate to all the files listed in "DBox_801_upgrade.txt" and rename them to original_name.8 for example "C:\AWRoot\bin\fi\version.ini" to "C:\AWRoot\bin\fi\version.ini.8"
9- Copy all the listed files from "C:\AWRoot7\..." to the appropriate location in "C:\AWRoot\...", you will now have 2 copies of each file, one with .8 extension and one without..

10- Restart your computer and start DiagBox, you now have 8.01 working but reporting v7.65.

Installing Updates:
1- Download and install the reconfigured "DiagBox_updt_802.ISO" update.
2a- Download and install 803-810 --> 811-814 --> 815-817 or
2b- You can use Maitresox updates from 7.66-7.76 --> 7.76-7.82 --> 7.82-7.83 etc..

You are done.. You now have DiagBox v8.xx running under v7.xx profile (ignore the reported version) and (in theory) you could switch back to your original installation by stopping all DiagBox services and renaming your current "C:\APP" and "C:\AWRoot" to 8 and "C:\APP7" and "C:\AWRoot7" to "C:\APP" and "C:\AWRoot". Going back to 8 is the reversal.

Update 1
The list of files, DiagBox 8.01 ISO and Update 8.02 download links with password are in the attached file "DBox_801_upgrade.txt". (This has been automated with the tool in update 2).

Update 2
You can ignore points 8 and 9 and use the attached "AWRoot_v7_files_for_v8.exe" tool. It will copy your APPDIAG.SYS from "C:\AWRoot7\bin\fi\APPDIAG.SYS" to "C:\AWRoot\bin\fi\APPDIAG.SYS" and install the needed V7 FILES.

The file "DBox_8-20.txt" contains a link to the original (NOT reconfigured) "inter8_20.rar" 8.20 update, it has components for "AWRoot" only. It is NOT announced on PSA site yet, so I don't know what fixes does it offer.
DO NOT TRY IT if you don't know what you are doing, it will render your system NOT WORKING for sure.


Have a nice time,

Simple.

RE: DiagBox 8.xx upgrade (& How to)
I have recompiled V8.xx updates from 8.02 to 8.17 (see attached file DBox_8xx_updates.txt) with all original files included and only the 4 files that make it work with version 7 changed. They will report V8.xx NOT V7.xx, you can try them.

The version.ini file has:
[APPLICATION]
Version=08.17
Version=07.81

However, after starting DiagBox and before starting Lexia, "Version=08.xx" needs to be commented, otherwise Lexia will deactivate DiagBox, in which case you need to restore APPDIAG.SYS to be working again, like this:
[APPLICATION]
;Version=08.17
Version=07.81

Else, keep "Version=08.xx" commented and DiagBox will report V7.xx but everything will be working fine... Please notice that DiagBox will NOT start with "Version=08.xx" only in version.ini (due to V7 profile).

Now, how are updates performed....

Updates are downloaded and expanded (by DiaagBox) in "C:\AWRoot\dtwr\updt\Appli\" folder as RAR files, then moved to "C:\AWRoot\dtwr\updt\MAJDIST\", See DiagBox_updt_8xx.rar.

You can manually expand one or more update in the "MAJDIST" folder where it will have the AWRoot, APP and possibly the APPLIC folders. The presence of "majdist.tmp" tells DiagBox that an update is waiting to be installed and on running DiagBox it will start Internet Update. If you remove "majdist.tmp" or rename it, DiagBox will NOT perform the Internet update even if it is downloaded, expanded and ready..

The idea is to navigate through the various folders and edit or remove necessary/unnecessary files so that it works... Run an upgrade file, it will expand in the "C:\AWRoot\dtwr\updt\MAJDIST\" folder, change the name of the "majdist.tmp" file so that you don't do something silly accidentally, or compress the files and move them somewhere else for manipulation, then move them back when done. Compare different files to whats hapenning.

The files that you are most likely to work with are in "AWRoot" and the main files that may damage the installation if it fails are APPDIAG.SYS, CFG.BIN in "AWRoot\bin\fi", CONFIG.SYS in "AWRoot\dtwr\cfg" and the 13 files starting with "fr.actia.AWF.xxxxxxxxx.dll" in the cache folder in "AWRoot\bin\fi\cache", every time you make a mistake they disappear.. So make sure you have working backup copies before you start (the configuration files are specific to the installation and the computer, they will NOT work on another installation). The rest are interchangeable..

Notice:
This particular upgrade was performed using the DiagBox v8.01 with no files removed, I did my best to follow the same methodology when configuring the updates.. I would (and others as well) appreciate if someone who is having issues with DiagBox 7, could try (V8 + updates) and tell us if it made a difference in his case.

Hints:
- The easiest way to build your experimentation environment is to use Virtual Machines and take snapshots after every significant achievement, so that if you make a mistake, you start from the last snapshot NOT from the beginning.
- To speed up recovery from failure, I have also added a small tool (Cache Contents Restorer in DBox_8xx_updates.txt) that will replenish "fr.actia.AWF.xxxxxxxxx.dll" after getting wiped out. You could create your own that will also restore (your) APPDIAG.SYS as well.

My objective is to empower users so that we can have lively contribution based on our collective and varying skills. If you are good with software and have a Peugeot Citroen car that you may have to live with for sometime to come, then have a go at it, it is time you learnt how to do it, and you know the symphony by now "carry out this procedure at your own risk"...

I guess we should see more members contributing....

Good luck..

Simple.

RE: DiagBox 8.xx Upgrade & How to Update
Automatically updating VCI Firmware

To make DiagBox check the VCI firmware and update if necessary,

Precaution:
Copy or move all files (NOT folders) inside "C:\AWRoot\bin\Launcher\" to a safe location before performing the following:

1- Download "Launcher.rar" from the link provided
2- Extract all files into "C:\AWRoot\bin\Launcher\" skipping or replacing existing files (ap.ini need to be replaced)
3- Rename your preferred Firmware inside Launcher folder to APPLI.COM
4- Connect your VCI and wait until it is recognised
5- Launch DiagBox, it will check the VCI Firmware and update ONLY if necessary.

You can disable this function by setting "MAJ_COM=TRUE" to "MAJ_COM=FALSE" in "C:\AWRoot\bin\Launcher\ap.ini"

Note: Some users may be afraid that a damaging APPLI.COM may be included in a future update release. If you are concerned, it does not matter if this is feasible or not, change AP.INI settings to disable firmware update after performing your desired update and put your mind at rest.

Remember the "At your own risk" symphony!!

Simple..

RE: DiagBox 8.xx Upgrade & How to Update
Reduced process for a fresh DiagBox v8.01 installation:

Installing DiagBox 8.01
1- Install DiagBox 7.01, perform the Activation, this will create the “APPDIAG.SYS”, “CFG.BIN”, "CONFIG.SYS" and “VERSION.INI” files in "C:\AWRoot\bin\fi\" needed for V8.01 installation. Stop the installation (Task Manager, End Task) and reboot the computer.
2- Rename "C:\AWRoot" to "C:\AWRoot7" and uninstall DiagBox v7.01, this will NOT remove “C:\AWRoot7”. Install Microsoft .NET 3.5 SP1, VC++ 2008 and Java and restart the computer.
3- Install 8.01, it will create a new "C:\APP" and "C:\AWRoot" but when requesting User Activation, close it and restart the computer.
4- Run "AWRoot_v7_files_for_v8.exe" (attached to the first post) and restart DiagBox application, it will continue the DiagBox 8.01 installation.
5- When finished, close DiagBox and restart it to ensure it is working fine and no updates are needed, it will report the Version 7.65.

Installing Updates:
1- Download and install "DiagBox_updt_802.ISO" update.
2- Other updates are as explained above.

Done...

P.S. The order of installing things is important, I had "Data Access Problem" which was sorted by reinstalling Java 7.67 and VC++ 2008 9.0.21022.8, then reinstalling DiagBox 8.01.. a blank "C:\VERSION.TXT" was also added.

RE: DiagBox 8.xx Upgrade & How to Update
Try to go through the new reduced process if wish to install afresh, and use dbcleaner 101 to remove the old installation.
But if you wish to keep the old installation:
Start task Manager and kill Firebird, SIM, PSA**, WSTransormer, AWACS**, AWR**, psa**, fbserver, HTTP_D**, ftps*, jqs,fts*, jusc*, j9w, DCC**, AWFi*, eclipse, mcc*.. I may have forgotten one more.. then you go to the services.ms and kill the Firebird services.

p.s. I have installed 3 times today (to improve the installation process) and I have finished 8.02 update..

RE: DiagBox 8.xx Upgrade & How to Update
@lurchy666, Your computer is not screwed up, and the process works... Also this process works:
http://cartechnology.co.uk/showthread.php?tid=13539 It has an attachment that has links to a collection of downloads.

Can you check that you have all the files in the cache folder? if you make a mistake, DiagBox deletes the contents of this folder, you can copy the 13 needed files or use the "Cache Contents Restorer" in the links to replenish the contents.

If you have renamed your working "C:\AWRoot" of your DiagBox 7.57 or above to "C"\AWRoot7" and it has working APPDIAG.SYS, CFG.BIN and CONFIG.SYS files, then download and execute "AWRoot_v7_Conf+Ativation_v8.exe"; your DiagBox 8.01 should then work..
