If you are not good at computers and want FreeSSM program for a good price, it’s okay to have a decent cracked version like http://www.obdii365.com/wholesale/subaru-freessm-diagnostic-cable.html – saying sw is tested and it does have a good rank in Google

  1. SUPPORTED PLATFORMS:

 

– Linux/X11

– Windows (XP and older are untested/unmaintained !)

freessm-preference

With minor modifications, it should be possible to build FreeSSM on MacOS X

and other Unix systems, too, but there is currently no offical support.

 

Here’s the tip: FreeSSM setup on MacOS X

——————————————————————————–

 

  1. REQUIREMENTS:

1.) FreeSSM source code (https://github.com/Comer352L/FreeSSM)

2.) Qt framework: Qt4 or Qt5

Development of Qt4 has been discontinued, the last release is v4.8.7.

Releases older than 4.8.7 are no longer tested !

There is no functional difference between Qt4 and Qt5 with regards to FreeSSM.

2.1.) Download sources:

Qt4: download.qt.io/archive/qt/4.8/4.8.7/

Qt5: www.qt.io/download.

Linux distributions usually provide ready packages in their

repositories, which should be preferred. Development packages are

needed, too.

2.2.) OS specifics:

Windows: The MinGW version of Qt is needed.

All other versions (e.g. for MS Visual Studio) are not

supported.

2.3.) General notes:

The sources of Qt are not required.

There is also no need to install tools such as Qt Creator etc.

3.) MinGW (only for MS Windows)

MinGW is usually shipped with Qt and just needs to be selected during

the installation process.

However, in the past the installation process changed very often.

There were times when it had to be downloaded and installed manually.

If the Qt-installer is not shipping MinGW, it usually provides at least a

direct link for downloading it. If that’s not the case, check

mingw.org and sourceforge.net/projects/mingw.

  1. COMPILATION:

 

4.1 PRELIMINARY NOTE:

 

Only compilation from command line is maintained/tested (but compilation with

Qt Creator etc. might work as well).

 

4.2 COMPILATION STEPS (COMMAND LINE):

 

Open a console window and switch to the FreeSSM-directory.

NOTE (Windows only):

If MinGW is installed properly, there’s a start menu entry which opens a command

line window and sets up the environment for compilation:

e.g. “Start” > Qt 5.12.3 > 5.12.3 > MinGW 7.3.0 (64bit) > Qt 5.12.3 (MinGW 7.3.0 64bit)

 

Preparation:

$ qmake

or (if you have Qt4 AND Qt5 installed)

$ qmake-qt4   or   $ qmake-qt5   (depending on your system environment)

 

If you want to build the version for small display resolutions, call qmake with

“CONFIG+=small-resolution” appended or uncomment the corresponding line in the

project file ‘FreeSSM.pro’ before calling qmake.

 

Compilation:

$ make release

or

$ make debug

 

Translation files:

$ make translation

 

NOTE (Windows only): depending on the used Qt-version and system configuration,

‘mingw32-make’ must be called instead of ‘make’.

 

——————————————————————————–

 

  1. INSTALLATION:

 

$ make release-install

or

$ make debug-install

 

=> the application will be installed to

– Linux:       the users home-directory (/home/userXYZ/FreeSSM)

– Windows:                    C:\FreeSSM (can be moved after installation)

 

Uninstallation:

 

$ make release-uninstall

or

$ make debug-uninstall

 

——————————————————————————–

 

  1. STARTING FreeSSM from command line:

 

First, switch to the installation folder (see 5.).

 

Linux:

$ ./FreeSSM

 

Windows:

$ freessm

 

You can append additional command line options if useful.

To get a full list of supported options and corresponding descriptions, start

FreeSSM with option “-h” (or “–help”).

 

Examples:

$ ./FreeSSM -h

=> prints help text (list of supported command line options)

 

$ ./FreeSSM -c transmission -f mbssws -p selectionfile=”/home/users/myMBSWselection_4.list” autostart

=> starts directly into the transmission control unit dialog, selects reading of

measuring blocks and switches, loads the MB/SW selection file

“/home/users/myMBSWselection_4.list” and starts reading immediately
