Elsawin 5.3 installation with
I have installed ElsaWin 5.3 on Windows 7
Ultimate (32-bit) yesterday with success. All works fine.
Elsawin 4.0 i was using no issue, it’s very cheap now:
Elsawin 5.2 i’ve ever used, works fine:
And now Elsawin 5.3 download from it’s official blog
Run ElsaWin 4.0
till 5.3 as admin with XP
compatibility. DO NOT ADD a database till you finished update
5.3, and with all installations “Check” and install the German
language. (this to avoid missing graphics files.) i have done a
reboot after each update.
Then install any DB you have!!
If the 5.3 version does not accept the DB because it’s to old just
take one of the Control#??.xml files open it in Notepad++(google to
download) in the bottom line you see the file nr. () change the
??(nr.) to “53” , then save a copy as : control#53.xml and add to
your DB and you can run the BD with success. (tested)
Also check if the languages you have “checked” in the Elsa
installation are in the DB setup, if they are not in the DB setup
it can be that the setup will be cancelled and no DB is installed
or that just the DB is installed but not in all the languages you
sellected in the Elsa installation.
Check also before installation if the DB is complete. there are a
lot of DB on the net that are incomplete, some have no Graphics
file, some have just 1 or 2 languages or other files missing.
If you have a known working database use it to compare it with
your new database.
i have installed for now the DB VW and Audi.
– VW Database_04.2015 36,3 GB (installed this first because of the
size, maybe more complete and is with commercial vehicles)
– VW_01.2016 21.5 GB
– Audi_02_2016 25,3 GB – BEFORE INSTALLING THIS AUDI DB !! open
it in Windows Explorer and look for the file :
saz.a._graphics.cab and change the name to:
It’s just a Typo (error in the name). replace the “_” in “#”. if
you do not you get an error during installation and you end
without the graphics.
i also have these DB: Seat 01-2015 and Skoda 03-2012 , But i did
not installed them because mine versions are far from complete and
