So I'm working on getting set up for jaguar programming. I read that you need a windows 7 32 bit OS in order to install the diagnostics and programming software from somewhere a while ago. I was wondering if that still holds tru today?
As far as I know it does. The first time I programmed a Jaguar which was actuallly the last time I did one I tried installing it just for interest on a 64 bit system but to no avail. It installed but did not open properly. I then purchased a used Panasonic Toughbook CF19 with 32 bit windows 7 and it worked perfectly. The Jaguar software download site also has the installation package to install…
Yes, SDD still requires a 32-bit installation of Windows 7. Autologic has an SDD installation guide here: static.autologic.com/J2534/JLR/JLR….pdf The latest version of SDD can be found here: diagnosticdelivery.jlrext.com/idscentral You must have a TOPIx account and be registered with the NASTF Trust Center to do anything…
Thanks Everyone. Guess I am buying another laptop. Starting to run out of room at home for laptops. haha.
Yes, and SDD needs room to grow with the constant updates rolling in. Last time I uninstalled it it was using over 100GB of space.
Both Pathfinder and SDD work perfectly fine on 64 Bit version of windows 7. My daily SDD/Pathfinder laptop runs windows 7 64 bit. Make sure to disable windows updates before installing SDD or Pathfinder. After initial installation is complete you can go ahead and update windows to support for example the PicoScope software. Just make sure to disable the Internet Explorer update when you go…
Excuse my ignorance but i never heard of pathfinder, what is that?
Pathfinder is the new diagnostic platform for all MY17 and newer JLR products that use DoIP and it is a LOT better than SDD!
is pathfinder a jaguar tool? I guess where can I get more info on it cause i'm always wanting to learn when I have the time. I believe DoIP diagnostics over internet? I only reason I know is cause I heard a guy at a shop talking about it when i went to visit a friend.
There is probably info on the TOPIx site, but I don't currently have an active script. Basically, it's the newest JLR software and VCI. I'm not sure if it is or will be J2534 friendly. It's similar to an ICOM and ISTA with an ethernet connection to your PC and able to interface with the 2-wire ethernet system on the vehicle in regards to the DoIP portion of it.
