Here is the user manual of how to how Allscanner VXDIAG VCX NANO GM + TIS2000 for SPS

IT works!! ok for anyone trying to use the VXDIAG GM nano with SPS this is what you need to do (order is important):

*** please note you cannot use the VM that the VXDIAG package comes with (GDS2 VM). It’s configured in such a way it won’t work with the dongle crack and caused me a lot of head scratching to find this out.

  1. Create a windows XP 32bit VM using VMWare Player
  2. Make sure you add an LPT port (set to auto, not connected on startup). It doesn’t matter if your actual PC has an LPT port or not this is needed for the dongle crack later.
  3. Install VMWare tools for your VM
  4. After you have the windows VM up and running install the BOSH MDI drivers found here:…-and-mdi-2(the MDI drivers on the driver disk and vxmanager installer wouldn’t install on my xp 32bit VM but the one from bosh does).
  5. From the driver disk or from install the VXDIAG MDI package with pass thru driver (VXDIAG MDI manager or VXDIAG Manager)

Download tis_data_1.iso, tis_data_2.iso, GM-NAO-TIS200-3_2008.iso, TIS2000DongleCrack.rar from this: mhhauto) or buy a tested TIS2000 crack such as and the like

  1. (files / instructions in the updated.txt you may need to click the link more than once if you get an error when downloading)
  2. Mount the tis_data_1.iso in your VM (use the virtual cdrom in vmware player and attach to iso file) this will start the auto install of the TIS2000 2007.3 software)
  3. All options can be installed using the default selections however make sure you check the install checkbox above the parallel security device on the one screen.
  4. After installation is complete you can extract the TIS2000DongleCrack.rar and copy the folder to the desktop of your VM
  5. Go into the TIS2000DongleCrack folder locate the drivers folder and open it, run the DDINST32.EXE (if you get a registry error you didn’t install an LPT port in your VM), select Express and it should install the files then click ok / Exit to close.
  6. Go back to the main TIS2000DongleCrack folder and copy SCAControlUI.exe and Id.dll to c:Program Filescosidsbin (it will prompt to replace id.dll select yes).
  7. Go back to the main TIS2000DongleCrack folder into the Dongle folder and copy the 2 files in there to c:windowssystem32 (the dongle crack is now installed)
  8. Now mount the tis_data_2.iso in your VM (use the virtual cdrom in vmware player and attach to iso file) and open TIS2000 (double click the icon on your desktop) when TIS opens it will ask you if you want to upgrade click yes.
  9. After the upgrade completes mount the GM-NAO-TIS200-3_2008.iso in your VM (use the virtual cdrom in vmware player and attach to iso file) and open TIS2000 (double click the icon on your desktop) when TIS opens it will ask you if you want to upgrade click yes.
  10. After the upgrade completes you have successfully installed TIS2000 2008.3 and the Dongle crack, now we need to configure TIS to use the VXDIAG GM nano
  11. Open TIS2000 from the icon on your desktop, select Configuration menu from the top and select IO Management.
  12. Click the Driver button, click the Browse button, locate the j2534.dll file in the window and click open (installs the J2534 Pass Thru Driver)
  13. Now click the Add button (in IO management) enter exacly “Generic Pass Thru” in Logical Name and select “J2534 Pass Thru Driver” in the Driver drop down, click OK.
  14. Select Generic Pass Thru in the list and click Properties, in the Device Name drop down select VXDIAG, (ALLScanner) and click ok then click close to close IO Management.

Now TIS2000 software is installed and configured all you have to do is connect your VXDIAG device to the PC / VM. To do this first use a usb and connect it to the PC then in the VMWare player menu go in removable devices and connect the Future Devices USB to serial converter. At this step my windows install didn’t have the basic usb to serial drivers so I connected the VM to the network (if not connected use the VMWare player menu to connect the network) and windows downloaded them from the net and installed the device as com3. you are now good to go.

At this point you can now click on SPS in TIS2000 select Generic Pass Thru as your device and your good to program!!

Satisfied, VXDIAG VCX NANO GM device works as a clone to the GM MDI.

C6 Corvette diagnostic & program tool : GM Tech 2 & its alternative

On the c6 Corvette, short of needing to download a firmware file to flash it into a new replacement module like a BCM that if vin dependent, all you need to troubleshoot and reset items on the car like a radio relearn is the Tech 2win program that is going to come on the disc. With this program and the GM nano, you don't need a subscription from GM.

Hence think of a TV, where it first need to be a operating system programming to be with (the firmware file), then once it flashed, all you need from that point is the remote control (tech2win in this case)

If you did need to replace one of the module like the BCM, ECM, Dash gauge cluster that requires a Vin specific firmware file, then the software you would need is TIS2000. Hence in Tis2000 program, is the Service Programming System program that would first require a subscription to GM to allow you to connect to GM servers to pull down the specific firmware file for your cars vin number, then flash it into the module for it initial set up.

Hence once you have the module replaced and it's needed firmware for the vin flash in to the module to begin with, then resetting the modules settings is done with the Tech2 win program instead.

Hence the only time you would need Tis2000, if if you are replacing a bad module on the car that requires firmware to be programmed into the module to begin with, and which that firmware file would come from GM for its initial flash.

TIS2000, And note that you will be using the stand alone Tech2 win with the nano, and not the tech2 view from TIS2000.



Now lets go over the C7 and later model cars that do not use a Tech II, but use a MDI instead (the GM Nano is mdi clone).

So GDS2 works the pretty much the same at Tech2 win for the most part/what it will do, so again, short of needing to flash in firmware to a brand new replacement module, GDS2 covers most of the items on the car for trouble shooting and resetting as well.

Now if you do need to replace a module on the car needs to be initial firmware flashed to the vin to start with, here is where you would need the Service Programming System program again.

Now with GDS2, it not Tis2000's programs SDS that you need, but GM GlobalTS program that will have the correct SDS for the newer cars that use GDS2 instead. Like the either of the SDS, to be able to connect to GM to get the needed firmware files from their servers, you would need to have a subscription to GM to run GM GM global software.

Now the part that blows on the C7, when you want to program in a Fob to the car using the tool, it not done with the GDS2 program. Hence in a c6, Tech2win allows you to program a fob into the car quickly since the needed menu in within the Tech2win program.

To program a fob into a C7 with the MDI, you have to use the GM global SDS program, since that is where the VTD relearn menu is located to program in fobs instead.

Now the glitch, do not think that anyone has cracked GM TS to have it run stand alone/ hence without needing a subscription to GM to run the program/without it needed to connect to GM, since it it a web base program.

GM TS, or more so, the web link since it a web base program.
