Installing Esys on New Computer...token problem

Hi Folks,
I previously had ESYS working perfectly on an old notebook which has since bit the dust. I have a new Windows 10 machine and have followed installation instructions carefully using latest software from Shawn.

The issue is that after installation, I run E-Sys Launcher which generates a token. I then select chassis (F82) and as it starts to launch....the program again asks for a PIN and repeats the process over and over.

Any suggestions?

What version of Launcher do you have? If 2.8.2 the system date can never at any time exceed 12/31/18. If it does you are Effed. Need a clean install. I had a clean install of Windows 10 home and then Windows 10 Pro and could get nothing in the "launcher premium" versions. Do clean install of everything. It would even sputter on clean installs of Windows 7 and Windows 7 pro so I think 2.82 was bad or designed to break it for everyone getting it free.

I tried for the entire year of 2018 and by making 4 legit donations to get Launcher pro from TM but no dice. You can try E-sys X and there are hacked versions of launcher pro out there. I didn't go that route....used Alex@alpine to do some coding for me. Quick, easy, he's a great guy and more than happy to pay his very reasonable fee for coding...

So are you saying before launching v2.8.2, manually set the date to sometime in 2018? If you don't, it'll completely invalidate the token generation process going forward, even if you set the date back after the fact?

Every version of Launcher has an expiration date. I think 2.8.1 expired 6/30/18....you can also try this tool https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1457494 which might help...didn't help me because I couldn't even get 2.8.1 or 2.8.2 to even open up on any of my laptops.

Last working version of launcher I had was 2.7.1. Shawn posted links to a couple of other options for working launchers that are valid for 10+ years. In any event I'm just going to use Alex@alpine from now on. Plenty of others on here that can help with coding as well.

You guys were right...the last token for Esys expired on 12/31/2018 and there is no update. After spending hours working on this, I threw in the towel and (at Shawn's suggestion), bought sa "hacked" version on EBAY with a "10 year token". Cost about $25 and worked like a charm.
