Elsawin 5.3/5.2/4.0 Windows 10/8:


Note: For 64-bit version of Windows 8 and 10 (most of newer computer or laptops), the only ElsaWin that support are versions 4 or newer. The current one now is 5.2 which includes some of the 2016 models.


ElsaWin 4.0 and 4.1 update should not have any problems installing first regardless, but most of the problems exist in the Elsawin 5.0 update when the SQL 2008 is installed. Windows 10 will give warning that the SQL 2008 may not be compatible, but it won’t stop the installation if everything is update correctly.

*** Make sure to run the setup.exe with Administrator permission ***

After every version installation finished, we should check to make sure the software is working. We should create a user for English as Administrator beside admin (password is admin) as default.

ElsaWin 5.0 update after 4.1 is done.

When the 5.0 update is done with the SQL server installation, the 5.1 and 5.2 update should be a breeze.

When every update is done, we need to install Acrobat 5.0.5 reader and SVG Viewer.

Now, we can install the Audi or VW data for ElsaWin 5.1 or 5.2 whichever the case may be. This process will take a long time since Audi data ~ 26 GB and VW ~ 36 GB

When everything is done, login as user, we should see the guide for accessing ElsaWin Repair Manual.

Elsawin 5.3 Windows 7 32bit:

This is how i installed:
– first make shure that you have full authorizations in Windows 7 (administrator)
– Then turn off the DEP (data execution prevention) function in windows 7 by : Run CMD as admin, run command – bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff , and reboot.

Run ElsaWin 4.0 till 5.3 as admin with XP compatibility. DO NOT ADD a database till you finished update 5.3, and with all installations “Check” and install the German language. (this to avoid missing graphics files.) i have done a reboot after each update.

Then install any DB you have!!

If the 5.3 version does not accept the DB because it’s to old just take one of the Control#??.xml files open it in Notepad++(google to download) in the bottom line you see the file nr. () change the ??(nr.) to “53” , then save a copy as : control#53.xml and add to your DB and you can run the BD with success. (tested)

Also check if the languages you have “checked” in the Elsa installation are in the DB setup, if they are not in the DB setup it can be that the setup will be cancelled and no DB is installed or that just the DB is installed but not in all the languages you sellected in the Elsa installation.

Check also before installation if the DB is complete. there are a lot of DB on the net that are incomplete, some have no Graphics file, some have just 1 or 2 languages or other files missing.
If you have a known working database use it to compare it with your new database.

i have installed for now the DB VW and Audi.

– VW Database_04.2015 36,3 GB (installed this first because of the size, maybe more complete and is with commercial vehicles)
– VW_01.2016 21.5 GB
– Audi_02_2016 25,3 GB – BEFORE INSTALLING THIS AUDI DB !! open it in Windows Explorer and look for the file : saz.a._graphics.cab and change the name to: saz.a.#graphics.cab
It’s just a Typo (error in the name). replace the “_” in “#”. if you do not you get an error during installation and you end without the graphics.

i also have these DB: Seat 01-2015 and Skoda 03-2012 , But i did not installed them because mine versions are far from complete and useless.

Elsawin 5.2 Windows 7 64 bit:


May you need to install Elsawin on 64 bit with luck. People hardly ever have good success on 64 bit system.


Here are Elsawin win7 x64 reviews:


Elsawin win7 x64: Failed!


– does not work on 64 bit – 32 bit only


– I have Windows 764BIT and ElsaWin3.9. When I try to install it fails (obviously).


– It acquires something like vmware which allows you to run a virtual machine within the windows 7 environment,  you will need a xp iso image to install on the virtual machine.



– I have a new laptop which came pre-loaded with Windows 7 Home premium 64bit. I’ve tried to install my copy of Elsawin, but it just won’t have it and keeps failing on the first stage of the install.


– Works fine on my desktop with Win 7 HP 32 bit but fails in the 64bit environment



Elsawin win7 x64: Success!


– ELSA 4.0 runs ok on Win7 x64…


– Need to run as XP and also as an Admin


– I’ve been told that if I had Professional it would work as it has an emulator ( or do they mean it has a run in XP mode — or is that effectively the same)


– Try installing windows XP mode, its brilliant! got Elsawin running here right now!


– I run it on 64bit Win7 ultimate, I use the free Windows XP emulation for Elsawin and ETKA



In summary, few users have good experience of installing Elsawin directly on Windows 7 64bit. Most of them go to 32bit or use windows xp mode as a solution.



Elsawin 5.2 Window XP:


The method of Elsawin 5.2 XP installation is the same as Win 7 32bit:


Step 1: Install AdbeReader 9.0

Step 2: Install & Activate SetupCD_4.00

Step 3: Install SKODA data

Step 4: Install UpdateCD_4.10

Step 5: Install UpdateCD_5.00

Step 6: Install SEAT data

Step 7: UpdateCD_5.10

Step 8: Install VW data

Step 9: Install UpdateCD_5.20

Step 10: Install AUDI data

Step 11: Login ElsaWin 5.2

Part 4: Elsawin software FAQs


– I’m not using the VIN field because when I do, the SW says that I have to launch a query, then opens an IE window, which leads to a non existent web site, and then a “login failed” error message.

– it is limited to the the information already on your pc, you need a dealer code to get through to the website and get more information, that said there is still alot of data in there

to make it work, put your Vin number in, and fill out the rest of the fields, to get the right information you can use the audi codes printed on the inside cover of your service schedule booklet

click on developpe (on your version and double click the vehicle.

you can then access the correct information for your car.


When installing elsawin 5.30, I immidiatly get the error “msxml2.domdocument 3” not found or version too old.

– I can not help much with the installation of version 5.X.
I only use version 4.1 because of the exaggerated disk space used by version 5.

You installed the Skoda Data DVD and Replaced the original Skoda Data DVD files: rl.C.en-GB.cab and all other languages: rl.C.xx-XX.cab ?
Version 5 does not install with these original files. If this is the case, you need these modified files.


– is there any possibility of installing Elsawin 5.3, with databases and functionalities?
I know that skoda only exists until 2012..but in elsawin 4.1 I can see them all

– Yes! You can install 5.X versions. But you need to edit the files rldal.C.xx-XX.mdb That are inside the files rl.C.xx-XX.cab or edit directly after installing version 4.x of the SKODA brand the files rldal.C.xx-XX.mdb in folder C:\Elsamin\Data\
Use Pass D2F224C3 to open/edit the files rldal.C.xx-XX.mdb
Some tables in .mdb files have some missing columns. Add these missing columns.
You can search for the missing columns in comparison with the files of the other brands (VW, AUDI or SEAT)
You can also use the program StarInix Database Compare to compare the differences.


ElsaWin installation failure on Win 10, with it saying Der er ikke licens til denne version! (English: You don’t have license for this version.)


Here are two user solutions. Wish this helps!


– Solution from vagvag:

Just run the Elsawin Administator with admin/admin and enter again your license key (services>code>code request) that you loosed with the classic Elsawin keygen


– Solution from garagemand:

I made a reinstall of ELSA on Windows 10, and that works.

I have install following items:
SetupCD 4.00
UpdateCD 4.10
Base 01.2014
Try to update with following, but didn’t have any success
6.Base_01.2015 has no setup.exe
