To Whom It May Concern:

The accompanying document took approximately three weeks to construct. It is a first draft and will probably need and receive some revisions...anywho, the attached PDF is intended to teach its' readers how to successfully install and run TIS 2000 on Windows 10...with a little ingenuity, of course. I'm open to constructive criticisms, suggestions and just plain bad mouthing, if you feel it necessary. If the need arises, ask. I'll try and answer to the best of my capability. I do hope this will become a community document that we can all share, reference and learn from. The PDF is restricted from editing and content theft so spammers and the like won't be able to take the crown jewels. I'm sure the HTML version will be ready soon. Thank you for your time. Best wishes in all of your General Motors adventures!

(1) What is the Type and Version of the Base Operating System do you have running your Computer? (Windows...?, Linux...?, Apple MAC...?)

(2) When installing Windows XP as a Virtual OS on VirtualBox... You WILL be required to enter the Correct,Valid COA (Certificate of Authenticity) Sticker ID# (this is the Unique 25 Digit Validation Code) from a VALID Windows Installation DVD COA Sticker. (See the Attached COA Sticker Example Image with the Number Location highlighted within a Red Box).

(3) If you have not completely Validated your Windows XP when creating a Virtual OS using a correct Product Validation Key COA Number, then the VirtualBox Installation will not run properly.

(4) If you are installing VirtualBox on a Linux OS like Ubuntu or Linux Mint, you must also Install the Secondary Support Package or the absence of the requisite Binaries that allow for the USB ports to function in Virtualization Mode will not work.

(5) If you have installed VirtualBox with an ACTIVE Firewall and/or had an Anti-Virus Program activated running... then VirtualBox may not function properly.

(6) Make certain that you have installed the latest version of VirtualBox only AFTER having completely uninstalled any/all Older Versions and start your New Oracle VirtualBox installation from scratch.

(7) Visit YouTube and search for Instructional Videos on "How to correct Invalid Virtual Machine Configuration Issues".

To Whom It May Concern:

Windows XP seems to be a problem for us, now, as it is completely dead - Product Key or not, it can't be activated due to MS taking down the activation servers. :Banghead: I've managed to get TIS 2000 running natively on Windows 7 Ultimate (x86) under VirtualBox 6.1.x, which Oracle has re-engineered for greater compatibility. In short, there is a forthcoming update to our "Running TIS 2000 on Windows 7 - 10" document. :celebrate: I do hope this benefits the community as a whole... Thank you, kindly, for your time. See y'all on the other side of this document... :woohoo:

Talking about VXDIAG in THIS THREAD is off topic. I have moved VXDIAG talk to its own thread so any questions about that should be directed there:

I wanted to provide feedback to this discussion.

My goal was to consolidate new and legacy applications on a single Win10 laptop. I used VirtualBox to accomplish this by separating the two.
The "Running TIS 2000 on Windows 10, v2.0" tutorial was well written and very informative.
I was having trouble with TIS 2000 SPS application. Sometimes it worked other times the SPS application would lock up.
I reinstalled the application using the links provided in the tutorial. It works correctly now.
Perhaps the original files I received from the seller were incomplete or corrupt.
The TIS application will now work on both VirtualBox Guests (Win 7, XP).

I have the following setup:
1. HP Elite x2 1012 Tuch screen Laptop, Amazon.
2. USB to DB9 Serial Adapter (with FTDI Chipset), Amazon.
3. Tech2, VXDAS.
4. VirtualBox v6.1,
5. Windows 10 (Host), Windows 7 Ultimate (Guest), Windows XP (Guest).
6. TIS 2000.

I am well aware there are other ways(software\hardware) to accomplish module programming. I primarily use a pass-through device when programming. My intention here was to reinforce the tutorial for those who would like to continue using TIS 2000 on a modern computer.

Thanks for the additional info. What we like about using TIS 2000 is not having to get an SPS subscription to be able to program modules. However, this can only be done up to 2007 or 2008 model years when they stopped updating TIS 2000.
