Need help on coding.

I have a 2015 X6 and just started coding. Everything went right the first time but on my second attempt, I bombed. My laptop suddenly went to sleep in the middle of writing a code back and I got a bunch of error messages. Now when I rebooted to load the VO and read ECU again, I only see one, which is the ACSM module I just wrote to earlier. Am I screwed?

I did however save the original VO/SVT files and when I load them I see all the ECUs. Is there any way for me to save the originals back to the car?

Are you saying ACSM is the only ECU in your SVT or you mean your ACSM ECU only has 1 CAFD instead of 3 like it is supposed to?

ACSM was the only ECU showing in the SVT. I have since uninstalled/reinstalled everything and can now see all the ECUs. However, I am now having issues with the trimmed data where I only see dots in the parameter names. I am using E-Sys 3.24.3, Esys launcher premium 2.07. Also having issues where it takes forever to read the ECU data. For some reason, just the ACSM module works with no issues. I can read and code fine. All the other modules gets hung when trying to read so I have to unplug the cable and start over. After doing so, I can the read fine. But when I go to edit, I just see dots in the string names.

I tried using PSdZData lite versions 55.4 and 56.0. I will now try to download the full PSdZData.

Full version won't make any difference, so you will download 40 Gb for nothing.

Reading ECU's with E-Sys Launcher is a slow process due to the mapping, and if PC has limited Java memory, it will take an even longer time.

As for Trimmed CAFD Data, do you read and follow this note:

* NOTE: E-Sys Launcher Car Series MUST be set to exactly match the car's chassis type you are coding (e.g. F01, F06, F07, F10, F12, F15, F25, F30, F82, F83, etc.). If after install it defaults to F999 and it cannot be changed, change PC Date ahead 4 days, then change E-Sys Launcher Car Series, then change PC Date back to current date. DO NOT craete .EST Token and PIN with PC Date advanced 4 days as the Validity Start Date for the token will be 4 days in the future.

So for X6:

E-Sys Launcher Car Series = F16
E-Sys Connection Target = F25

Thanks for the quick reply. Will try again later and let you know if those settings work.

EDIT: Everything seems to be working now. Thanks Shawn for the links and your help.
