one other thing, the first part, i really want to use the 32 bit laptop i got ( https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/112053480022? ... EBIDX%3AIT ) if possible, so does it vary at all in the first few posts, because thats where it went wrong, as i specifically bought a laptop for the job, and it didn't want to load even though it seems to have the right spec?

Use your vista 32bit machine. Don't use windows 10 64 bit machine.Diabox V7.77 Installation & Activation Instruction: (for Windows x86/32 bit systems)
Go to https://www.magiciso.com/tutorials/miso- ... erview.htm and Download the vista version (Windows XP/2003/2008/Vista) is there a Windows 7 specific version there too? reason i ask is that there is a window 7 64 bit system option but no 32 bit option1. Install the MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM according to your system
Install the download and reboot if prompted.
This link has pictures and instructions on how to 'Mount' an image (ISO) file,
read this page https://www.magiciso.com/tutorials/miso- ... -mount.htm because you will need to do that next.
See above, mount the DiagBox V7.02.iso.2. Mount the DiagBox V7.02.iso using MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM
You will then gain a new virtual CD/DVD drive and run setup.exe from that virtual CD/DVD drive in MagicISO
this will install Diagbox
Follow those instructions.when the installation finished the program will ask to activate the software, just ignore it and close the program immediately, NEVER try to activate or update online!!!
You now have new icons on your desktop for diagbox and various other programs that you won't use.4. Run the diagbox from desktop
Double click the diagbox shortcut to run it
When you are prompted, do this:5. Choose Manually Activate the diagbox with Customer Code: 1234567 (7 digits) , click Next and NextIt can take 10 minutes or more, depending on how fast or slow your machine is. Be patient.6. Then the diagbox will start to install the Lexia3 and PP2000 data base until all finished(you will see the Citroen and Peugeot logo), You can find it the version is V7.01 ,Close the program immediately!
Seems quite self explanatory7. Run the diagbox from desktop again , it will load offline update for a moment, after that the version will turn to V7.02
8. Go to C:\AWRoot\bin\fi
Use my computer or windows explorer or whatever the file manager is in vista. Navigate to C:\AWRoot\bin\fi
This means to take a copy (copy and paste) the file to a different location. - Anywhere, just remember where.back up APPDIAG.SYS file
Its just some advice on where to save the copy of the file. Its not important where, just remember where you put it.( you can create a new folder in C:\AWRoot\bin\fi then copy and paste the original APPDIAG.SYS file into the new folder )
You may need the file again, in the future.*** Step 8 is very important, this backup will be helpful when some day you are asked to reactivate DiagBox
This is important, do what it says.(5) We recommend all users to use diagbox WITHOUT INTERNET to avoid reactivation.
This is useful information.If any chance you are asked to reactivate DiagBox, please just copy the backup [APPDIAG.SYS.bak] file to replace the old original APPDIAG.SYS.bak file in C:\AWRoot\bin\fi
All the information you need is in the text, what else can the vendor tell you?^^^^^ tried contacting them, but they don't answer emails, very helpful of them, or more likely they have no idea how to help and just reproduced it to sell on?
The instructions on using it are https://www.magiciso.com/tutorials/miso- ... -mount.htm in the link. If the program didn't install correctly, uninstall it and download then reinstall it. Follow the instructions in the link to use it.I thought I had done, as theres a shortcut on the desktop but when clicked on, nothing happens, is this something that's unseen and runs in the background?
I thought you had Vista. Anyway, use only a 32 bit machine to follow the instructions, it won't work on a 64 bit machine.this is about it really, as posted earlier, I seemed to download onto ithink the windows 10 laptop I got from PC World, and the Vista system one i have but never got any further, now it doesne work at all on the current windows 7 laptop which I'm typing on with now
see(1) Diagbox is compatible with windows XP/7 32 bit only! it's not good for 64 bit operating systems.
If you only have 64 bit system, either format and reinstall a 32 bit or follow completely different instructions to run a virtual machine:Which is easier said than done if mounting an ISO in magiciso is an issue.please need to build on VMWare or Vitual XP
