Exclamation Diagnostic tool help

Hi,

I'm looking to buy a diagnostic tool/scanner for my 2006 Peugeot 407SW 2.0HDi
My car failed it's MOT as the ABS and ESP lights are on and I believe it's just a sensor.
I am in France so I can't contact a member on here who already owns Peugeot Planet for help.
I've been looking at icarsoft i970 and Peugeot Planet. Is the icarsoft as good as the Peugeot Planet? Which Diagbox or Lexia3 should I get as there are a lot out there. I'm looking more at the icarsoft because I understand the Peugeot Planet only runs on Windows XP and possibly WIN 7 which I don't have. I have windows 10.

Thanks in advance for any advice and help.
Sharon

Diagbox is what you need and it works fine on windows 10

Diagbox is what most actually use planet is the older software lexia is the citroen software the adapter is actually called actia it is all very confusing but just buy the latest version and install diagbox it installs the peugeot and citroen software as well as an older version of planet which as you say wont work but diagbox works fine on windows 10 i have it in this laptop

Default latest diagbox?

I am very grateful for your reply but I am an absolute novice. You say Diagbox is the later one to buy and works with windows 10 but again there are several versions from what I can see on Ebay varying in price from 40 and a lot more upwards. I would prefer not to have to buy a windows XP laptop but I really need to be told exactly what to buy.

Many thanks
Sharon

Planet runs on XP this is NOT what you need you need diagbox

ALL versions work on modern computers diagbox is the newer software and is what is needed for your age of car there is NO exact one to buy they are ALL clones of the real thing ALL work fine its only the method of installation that causes issues

The adater/interface needs to be revision C but i doubt anyone is selling any revision B ones anymore.

I have it installed on 3 different PCs and i can use any adapter/interface on any of the 3 PCs

Some people have found that Diagbox will only run trouble-free on 32-bit Windows 10. My experience with a 64-bit Win 10 confirms that. Most installations of Win 10 are 64-bit.

Notwithstanding that, it is always possible on a 64-bit system to use VMWare Player (free for non-commercial use) to install a 32-bit Windows as a virtual machine. It is then easy to install either Planet or Diagbox into the VM. I have done it several times, using a WinXP SP3 VM, and it works very well.

You just run it in compatibility mode which essentially does the same thing as your VM but without anything extra to install and it works fine my laptop is 64bit and it runs fine

I am NOT a PC expert if i can make it work anyone can !!

Just Google "Installing Diagbox Youtube". Plenty to choose from.

When installing, do not plug the interface box into the PCs USB port until prompted, or the drivers will not install correctly.

Also no internet connection and disable any antivirus as some antivirus wrongly reports a virus and stops the install working.

Once its up and running NEVER do an internet update.
