This is my copy hosted on box.comI think I have everything working Tech2win and Global TIS both with security access. It seems like it should be simple but what bin file do I need and where can I get it. I've been reading a ton and was looking for saab nao 9.25 and cant find it.
I was beyond excited to see this post. Working on getting it setup on my Windows 7 VM and will definitely let you know how it goes.I've followed this thread only very loosely, but I think I've solved the root problem, which was a bug in Tech2Win. Please try it with your Mongeese because I don't have one.
After being burned on a GM MDI which was promised to totally and definitely work with my SAAB, only to find out that Tech2Win couldn't successfully communicate with anything, I decided to sit down, figure out why, and fix it. And now, I've done it! No longer will you be plagued by "I-Bus...www.saabcentral.com
Ok so I was able to download and install on a Win 7 VM but it was running so slow I was having problems. II was beyond excited to see this post. Working on getting it setup on my Windows 7 VM and will definitely let you know how it goes.
Whoops, yeah. I deleted the old file to add some stuff to the README, then found I couldn't edit the post to put it back. Trying to get it straightened out with Diggs, but I imagine he's a bit busy today Part of the reason was to update that it actually works just fine on Windows XP.Ok so I was able to download and install on a Win 7 VM but it was running so slow I was having problems.

Decided to rebuild the PC with Win 7 native. Got laptop rebuilt and went to download the software again and it has been removed. Would be grateful if it can be reloaded somewhere.
Working on my xp got it installed. In the car still getting no ibus. Hovering over the red pin get "vbatt error-80"It was warning me about slow computer speed. Glad to hear it works on XP as I have a good xp laptop setup. I will get it going on the xp rig and give it another shot. I will monitor the pushpin and let you know what its doing.
Can you use your Mongoose as a J2534 pass-thru device in GlobalTIS for SPS? IIRC my MDI was able to detect the car and read information about a module in TIS2000 without having Tech2Win working.Also can not communicate with the vehicle in global tis
Tech2Win should have created its own logs in its configuration directory. I would like to see those too. Those Mongoose logs confuse me; it's all J2534 and not PDU-API. And I'm not that surprised that the GM bin doesn't work anymore. It's a shame though, but I don't really have any way to test it.Ok so still have vbatt 80 error on both xp and win 7. The xp setup with your modified t2w and the gm nao bin doesn't nwork on my chevy any more it cant co municate with the vehicle. I attached a couple of logs.
CANDi works fine on and is required for lots of pre-2007 SAABs. I did most of my testing on a 2003 9-3 with 148.000 and no control units were destroyed? I used both a real Tech 2 and CANDi and my MDI without problems.
- CanDi and GlobalTIS works on from 2006 Opel, and 2007 Saab, CanDi used on prior 07 Saab destroys the control units. 145.000 was the latest binary for Tech2 accessed Saab's up to the year 2006
- GM MDI works for 2007 onward GM and SAAB cars, also the 9-5 NG 2009-2011 but not on prior 07 Saab
Tis2Web works fine on my Windows XP laptop. There is also a 64-bit edition of Windows XP, but it is very rare. VMWare also probably works fine on 64 bit Windows 7. I did most of my testing using VirtualBox on my Macbook.
- Tis2Web works not on WinXP as XP does not support 64bit applications.
- VMware with XP emulator works not on 64bit Win7 Computers
TIS2000 works natively on windows XP, 7, and 8 as long as it's 32 bits. No emulator required.
- TIS2000 is winxp software on does not work on Win7-64 computers. On Win7_32 yes with emulator.
This I would actually be interested in testing. In some of my tests I was still allowed to select non-North American regions with the NAO bin. I suspect NAO just means the software is compiled with the cars available in north america as the databases are too large to fit every car on one card.
- NAO means NorthAmericanOperations, this was depending due to GM divided their target markets. And still do. Software/bin-files named as NAO is not intended to work on GCC, Euro and/or Asia/Pacific marketed cars.
No log files in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\General Motors\Tech2Win\config on xp machine. do i need to change a setting to get it to log?Tech2Win should have created its own logs in its configuration directory.

Does the unmodified "emulator OTHER.exe" do this same stuff?
IIRC it's C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Shared Documents\General Motors\Tech2Win\Logs or C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\General Motors\Tech2Win\Logs . It's a bunch of HTML files with the time they were started as the filename.No log files in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\General Motors\Tech2Win\config on xp machine. do i need to change a setting to get it to log?
Alright, I looked through them and the only error the Saab software is getting is an RX timeout. There's no other obvious red flags.Heres a couple of log files
