Hi all

I'm very confused. I thought PP2000 was downloadable for free? I've found a link which will let me download an update (v8.18) but when I run it it appears to be looking for v7.76 so that it can upload it to 7.82.

I can't find a free link for the base v7.76.

Is it free or not?

I'm hoping to borrow a Lexia3 interface cable which is why I haven't bough a whole kit from ebay (yet)

Regards

Jon

@jimmymarsbar

I can't reply to your PM as I've not got 20 posts.

The answer though is please, but I'll wait until I know if I can borrow a Lexia cable otherwise I may as well buy the whole kit which I'd imagine would include CDs.

Thanks

I wouldn't trust free downloads. You can either purchased the kit yourself which should come with the required disks or you can look on the planet map to see if there is a member near you.

Actually planet is bootleg software quite what makes you think its freeware im not sure !!



I believe it is actually of bosch origin doubt bosch would happily give things away
PP 2000 is freeware.
It might have been bootleg in the last century, I dont know.
since the software is useless without the PSA interface, might be the reason it's freeware I cant tell.
It can be downloaded from several so called trusted sights.

Just because you can download it from somewhere does NOT make anything freeware if it is a copy of someone elses work software whatever it is NOT freeware !

IF it was freeware as you say we would be able to access peugeots servers and do updates to the software as well as download updates to our ECUs

WE CANNOT do that as we should not have the software OR the hardware

freely available is not the same as free !

That is not true.
Being able to access the PSA server has nothing to do with the software being freeware.
But if You want the last word. It is your.
Have a happy easter.

What a load of BS.

If anything is BS it is your reply. If PP2000 was freeware it would not require the use of a keygen to get it running.

PP2000, Lexia and Diagbox are all proprietry software packages which legally are only available and licenced to official PSA dealers or authorised repair centres.

Yes these software packages have been made available for free downloads but that in itself does not qualify them as freeware, just like the free downloads of MS office, Photoshop, Windows operating systems and any other commercial software that is sold makes them freeware.

You really need to understand the differences between the different types of software available before making statements about them.

Look if you think it's free go into Peugeot dealers and ask them for a copy . Like people are saying just because you can download a copy doesn't mean it's free . It is still a illegal copy you can not run updates

Free software does not need a keygen.

Just to educate you, a keygen AKA Key Generator is used to generate a key to licence a software product. A genuine free software would come with a licence key so negating the requirement of a keygen.

Good luck with trying to get support for any software you install using a keygen.

But hey - if you enjoy walking around with your head in the clouds and no sense in your head well - enjoy your easter. Who knows, maybe the bunnies will lay some choccy eggs for you that won't rot your teeth requiring a visit from their pal the tooth fairy.

Must be fun being an adult with a 2 year olds outlook on life.
