Why 09.2014 Xentry XDOS is best for Part D (C3)

The reason why Xentry Diagnostic Openshell version 09.2014 is the best software for C3 Star is that:

anything after Xentry 09.2014 you have to do too many fixes to get it fully working..

For those with C3 mux, YOU HAVE TO KNOW:

11.2012 Xentry: best for OFFLINE PROGRAMMING

09.2014 Xentry: the BEST – the most famous and favorite

12.2015 Xentry: advise to use xentry xp/xdos up to 12/2015

05.2016 Xentry: the LAST version working with PartD aka C3

07.2018 Xentry: the NEWEST version but better work with MB SD Connect C4 or Xentry Connect C5

If there is any chance it will work with C3, the first thing is to play with toolkit.ini

It will be in c:\program files\Mercedes-Benz\SDconnect Toolkit\bin\toolkit.ini or C:\Program Files (x86)\Mercedes-Benz\SDconnect Toolkit\bin\toolkit.ini

There will be a line that says UseComPorts=

Here add the port number you wish to use.

Note that since 2016-01 part D is replace with part Z (bosch vci). so if you want to use C3, you have to use old driver.

In summary, version 09.2014 is the best for your C3!!
