HOW TO UPDATE SILCA ELECTRONIC MACHINES

 

 

The 1st thing to do is to power up the device that you want to update, then connect the device to the computer through Serial or USB cable.

 

When the device is powered up and connected to the computer, start the program “Wintransfer” from menu:

 

Start -> Silca Software -> Wintransfer

 

And select the machine of your interest (in this case RW4):

Press “Select” button to continue

1. Select the COM port, generally for serial cable is 1 or 2, for USB the port should be 6, 7 or 8.

2. Verify that machine is the machine that you want to update.

3. Pressing on “Online documentation” button you can see the device manual and how to configure and install USB drivers ports.

4. Click on button “Test connection” , the program try to communicate with the device, and if all is OK it show the device serial number (detail 5) and the software loaded in the machine (detail 7). If the program fail to connect to the device verify that you are using the right communication port.

5. If you want pressing button “Set Serial Number” you can change the device serial number.

6. Detail 6 shows the software version that Wintransfer program can load on the device.

7. Press “LOAD SOFTWARE UPDATE” button to update the machine.

 

The update procedure starts, this may take several seconds.

 

 

HOW TO UPDATE WINTRANSFER PROGRAM

 

Now, is possible that the device software version that the Wintranfer is able to load in the machine is the same of the software version already loaded, to verify if there are further updates you can use the “Silca Remote Service” feature clicking on “Run Silca Remote Service” button (detail 9).

 

A new windows shows up, click on updates button:

Then click “Check” button (detail 1), the program make a connection to Silca and check if there are some software updates.

 

In this case for RW4 machine there are new version, select the RW4 machine and click on “Download” button, wait that the download process is done and then you can close Silca Remote Service clicking on “Exit” button.

 

Now the Wintransfer is updated, and you can load on the RW4 the latest software available.

Start -> Silca Software -> Wintransfer

 

I have an RW2 with tex code but have never had any software with it, is there anywhere I can download the software to perform an update?

the software should have been on the disc that came with the tex code dox that you used to install it on the pc to do the crypto keys on with the eh2 heads.

unfortunately no... you need to have a software, and the first time the software must be installed starting from a CD rom.

 

the latest versions for RW2 with tex code is:

 

RW2 version 30

TexCode 3.1

 

 

unfortunatly again RW2 updates are not available via Silca Remote Service...

 

If you want I can send you by email a package to update RW2 to the latest version, it's a 4.3Mb .zip file that contains wintransfer for RW2+Tex

I have not got the SRS software element. Why i don't know, I have searched the disk that came with the RW 4 and loaded Wintransfer programme but the Run SRS button is grayed out,so I can not update.

Has anyone a link to download it

 

Thanks

 

Keith

It sounds like you may have a corrupted version. This seems to be a common problem with some Silca software. You can download a good version of Wintransfer if you follow this link;

 

Wintransfer File Link

 

If, like me, you struggle even with english, it may seem daunting.... but don't panic. Top right, where it looks like it is asking for a user name and password, just click the 'Go' box.... It should (hopefully) then offer to download Wintransfer automatically.

Keith, we have emailed the manufacturer about a link to download this. Will get back to you as soon as we can.

 

It is sods law as soon as i saw the update for the RW 4 I cannot get it and the next dayI get a job I could use it on cloneing a ID 40 chip.

 

Thanks Chris.

The Chinese SBB's can't be updated, the button on the software is ghosted out. I think you can by altering a chip or doing some soldering inside them.

You pays your money you takes your chances, if you'd brought a "Real" machine from silca you wouldn't have to worry!

Why not try and give silca a call im sure they will be glad to help. NOT.

 

It just goes to show if you buy a chinese copy then you get chinese backup, hopefully when you manage

to completly destroy a customers ECU then maybee you'd think about the long term consequences of buying

a copy machine.

 

This issue has been covered many times on this forum and at the end of the day piracy is theft.

 

I have nearly £40,000 of keycutting and programming equipment all genuine and with genuine software,so

why should i be willing to help someone else cheating my suppliers out of there hard earned money.

 

The real cost of a machine does not reflect how much money went into the research and development of that

machine which is why costs are set at a reasonable price for the manufacturer to make profit, which they

can then invest in future development of newer and better machines.If we all had pirated machinery then WHO

would develop any new machinery???.

Hello guys,

 

respect the opnion of grahamparker and sometimes agree to

have products unique, even got some.

 

But how consiguir compete with my competitor which has

China SBB and last update.

 

In my country(Brazil) the price of SBB China is more less 350USD

other hand the SBB original is more less 8.805 USD.

An action does not justify another but unfortunately, Brazil has a lot of taxes which contributes the high price of products.

 

I am a father of family and given the situation in brazil I decided to buy the Chinese version.

 

Thanks to Lee and who else can help me. When open the SBB i saw what Lee told the conector is software is ghosted.

The conector RS232 does not is connected in SBB.

 

Anyone know to connect the scheme?

Can anyone help me update ?

 

Thank you all in advance.
