Basic process (skipping lots of relevant details):
- connect to car
- start ESyS by running ESysX
- in ESys, connect to car; make sure it gives the Connected pop-up
- Read FA
- Read SVT
- right click VIN at the top of the ECU tree and choose Read Coding Data; this will read all ECUs and leave local NCD files for you to play with offline; will also want to save FA and SVT files for that
- do the rest per the other instructions
I'm on 7.19.53 from July. Do I still need a later version? I'm on the latest I could find at present.

I guess I'm going to have to read up on it because I don't see FA in Esys. Is SVT the same as SVT Actual? I see an option for reading ECU under SVT Actual and that throws all kinds of read errors for object with name not found. Thanks!
That version of Psdzdata should be fine for your ISTEP.

The top level instructions I mentioned are all in the Coding module in ESys.

Are you successfully connecting to the car? Car in Diagnostic Mode (triple press start without brake)?

Pic is not while connected to car, sorry, not near car right now.
