Thanks all for replies, I'm going to dust off my old laptop at the weekend and try and get cracking with this so expect a lot more questions - although I promise to search the forums before asking anything

*sigh* it was never going to be easy...

I'll skip over much of it but suffice to say I'm not having a lot of luck installing Diagbox. I have a HP laptop, about 7 years old and I've done a clean install of Windows 7 (32 bit) on it. Following the instructions that came from the supplier I've installed Daemon tools and WinRAR but no matter what I try I get as far as entering the activation code (1234567), I go to the following screen with the 'You must contact the hotline, providing them with the following information blah blah' so Ilk the green tick as per the instructions and I get a message saying "Error during installation of Lexia. You have to reactivate to restart the installation'. Can't get past that point. Mark (eBay reseller) is very helpful but we're not getting anywhere. I don't want to return it but I've been through the installation so many times this past week I could probably do it with my eyes shut!

I tried installing XP from a USB but it won't install that way, I guess I could burn a DVD and try installing it from that but Diagbox is supposed to work on 32 bit Windows 7 and I prefer that as an OS, XP dates back to about 2002 and is regarded as inherently insecure these days!

You just need to keep at it it can be a pain to install I have done it a few times now and some install instructions are in the wrong order etc

As for XP vulnerabilities that's only going to be an issue if you go online and you are best not to go online with diagbox or planet as if it connects to Peugeots servers your software will be blocked this might be where you are going wrong

I can't suggest anything, but on the matter of security of XP, it is irrelevant, as you should not be connected to the internet when installing and running Planet/Diagbox.

Thanks guys, I'll try again with Win7 and then try XP if necessary. I thought the offline bit was to stop mdaemon from trying to activate but I'll try it totally offline then

Don't think youll be able to use it on the 508 but should be ok on the 207. I have a 2016 2008 on a 65 plate and my son has a 2008 from 2013. Diagbox only recognises a couple of the ECU's on both of them. I had no issues reading the ecu's on a 61 plate 308 though.

Isn't there some kind of special additional box you use between the Lexia3 and the car for the recent models?

I'd be disappointed if it didn't work on the 508, according to the seller it supports current models - please remove this link if necessary but this is the one I bought: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FULL-CHIP...=2456782459016
