Re: Enabling options for R&S test equipment

K4 I don't know. The device I had was too old and didn't support that option. Just try them one after another and you'll probably find it.

Let me try clarify some things  (although I don't know much about this).

The list of options extracted from FSP firmware v4.50 API.DLL is the following:

They are ordered according to the seeds table (used in the prog to generate licenses).

Also, in that .DLL we can extract a more complete seed (uint32) table than the one used in the original prog (post #7). I attach it below.

Those that are using the program should add the new seeds because they may be needed to enable other Options.

The FSH Option names can be extracted from the FSH firmware's API.DLL. If anyone sends me a current FSH API.DLL I might extract the complete list of Options.

When adding the Option seeds you should also make them TRUE so that all possibilities are calculated.

For FSH3, I looked into the update file which contains GALAXY.ldf, GALAXY2M.ldf and GALAXY3G.ldf.

Seems there is an easteregg there:

"
Mines left: %d
Time: %3d
Best time: %3d
Lives: %d
Score: %d
HighScore: %d
Waiting for opponent...
Congratulations, you won!!
Ouch, you lost!!
Your fleet
Opponents fleet
Drop bomb...
Watch out for incoming...
Expose a part of one of your ships...

HI
I have got an AMIQ waveform generator.
I tried with the options generator but no luck.
Looking at the manual it would seem that the options here are only 8 characters long.
Anybody has an example of option code (together with the serial number)
Maybe it is possible to figure out the algorithm.

Thanks

Hey Guys,

I have a ZVR, SN is 835068/005. and I found the SW sn  \R_S\INSTR\INI\OPTOIN.INI
Is't anyone know how to decode it?

Hi tv84,

I attached a API.DLL form a ZVR.  could you decode the option from it?

Hey Guys,

I have a ZVR, SN is 835068/005. and I found the SW sn  \R_S\INSTR\INI\OPTOIN.INI
Is't anyone know how to decode it?

maybe
feat_0 = 'HARMONIC MEAS', 'B3', 'Harmonic Measurements'
feat_1 = 'MIXER MEAS', 'B4', 'Mixer Measurements'
feat_2 = 'NONLINEAR MEAS', 'B5', 'Nonlinear Measurements'
feat_3 = 'REF MIXER PORTS', 'B6', 'Reference Mixer Ports'
feat_4 = 'POWER CALIBRATION', 'B7', 'Power Calibration'
feat_5 = '4 PORT MEAS', 'B99', '4-Port Measurements'
feat_6 = 'QUARTZ MEAS', 'BXX', 'Quartz Measurements'

This is an old public algorithm.
test Feat_2+, if all OK - test b3-b4 too,
in newer devices - these numbers(0 or 1) used for demo.


now r&s used new long key.
many know how to create new too,
but no one wants to share it to public ))

Hi tv84,

I attached a API.DLL form a ZVR.  could you decode the option from it?

I don't think so. Do you have examples of options for that equipment?

Hi tv84,

I don't think so. Do you have examples of options for that equipment?

I double checked with ZVR manual, the only K option for ZVR is K9 only, there is nothing to do with this unit.

So I am looking in another one, FSEA30. the datasheet say the K option for FSEA is:
---------------------------------------------------------------
FSE-K4  Phase Noise Measurement Software,
FSE-K3  Noise Measurement Software
FSE-K10 GSM Test Software, Mobile
FSE-K11 GSM Test Software, Base Station

FSE-K21 GSM Test Software, EDGE Base Station
FSE-K30 GSM Test Software, 850 GHz band Mobile
FSE-K31 GSM Test Software, 850 GHz band Base Station
----------------------------------------------------------------

Just decoded the SN using "Rohde & Schwarz FSP option generator".

Notice: that I decode all  seeds, the comment "Kx  xxxx Application Firmware" is not correct, it's for FSP

compare with the options.ini in my FSEA. the fisrt line is the "FSE-K10 GSM Test Software, Mobile".

------------------------------------------------------
Options file in my FSEA:
3780795724; GSM MTS ANALYZER
------------------------------------------------------

My question is which line of the SN is for other option?
-------------------------------------------------------------------
FSE-K4  Phase Noise Measurement Software,            ??????
FSE-K3  Noise Measurement Software                     ????????
FSE-K10 GSM Test Software, Mobile                       3780795724
FSE-K11 GSM Test Software, Base Station
FSE-K20 GSM Test Software, Edge Mobile
FSE-K21 GSM Test Software, EDGE Base Station
FSE-K30 GSM Test Software, 850 GHz band Mobile
FSE-K31 GSM Test Software, 850 GHz band Base Station
-------------------------------------------------------------------

another thing I found is that there is no API.dll in my FSEA30. I search all *.ll in hard disk, it seems that "FSEFPNL.DLL" is the suspect one.

Hey Guys,

I have a ZVR, SN is 835068/005. and I found the SW sn  \R_S\INSTR\INI\OPTOIN.INI
Is't anyone know how to decode it?

--------------------------------------------------------
4056071223; EMBED DEEMBED
0436723430; TIME DOMAIN
1234299954; CONVERTER 4 CHAN
--------------------------------------------------------

maybe
feat_0 = 'HARMONIC MEAS', 'B3', 'Harmonic Measurements'
feat_1 = 'MIXER MEAS', 'B4', 'Mixer Measurements'
feat_2 = 'NONLINEAR MEAS', 'B5', 'Nonlinear Measurements'
feat_3 = 'REF MIXER PORTS', 'B6', 'Reference Mixer Ports'
feat_4 = 'POWER CALIBRATION', 'B7', 'Power Calibration'
feat_5 = '4 PORT MEAS', 'B99', '4-Port Measurements'
feat_6 = 'QUARTZ MEAS', 'BXX', 'Quartz Measurements'

This is an old public algorithm.
test Feat_2+, if all OK - test b3-b4 too,
in newer devices - these numbers(0 or 1) used for demo.


now r&s used new long key.
many know how to create new too,
but no one wants to share it to public ))
Code: [Select]
sn: 835068.005  id: 00 option key: 1542267991  desc: feat_0
sn: 835068.005  id: 01 option key: 2797899109  desc: feat_1

I have a R&S ZVB8 2 port Vector Network Analyzer, but I can't see any options file (SWOPT.DAT or similar). Under 'Info', no files are loaded that indicate which file it could be.

I could really use the ZVAB-K2 Time Domain option - does anyone have any good suggestions? The serial-number is 6-digits.

To be honest, I can't even see where I would load a valid software option key.

Hi Jacod,
I don't have the ZVB yet. I download the firmware  form RS and than extract all files.
there is a DLL file "OptionKeyServices.dll", I guess this Dll is work for the option key.

for the SW option key, you should search *option*.* or *opt*.* in D disk. in my ZVR, it's "Option.ini".

and check the serial-number on "info" hard key manu.

I went through the "OptionKeyServices.dll", it seems that some fuction is base on OpenSSL 0.95 lib.

But I can't find the where the key hidden.

Stuck here ....

 I did some Reverse Engineering of OptionKeyServices.dll. it show that the OptionKeyServices.dll always access the Register table of windows.
Maybe the Option key is store in register table.

Pls. check reg table on:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWEARE\Rohde&Schwarz\......

Hi all,
Still frustrated trying to get several option running on our radio club ZVH.
Really wanting to activate K1, K9 and K39.
I did have a contact with a guy in Russia but the expected cost was way way beyond the budget by many orders of magnitude and was probably more based on a commercial proposition.
Have tried all the options with variations mentioned in these pages to no avail.
If someone does have a key gen stored away and can provide me with activation codes for Ser No 102660/24 I would be prepared to pay a fee or donate a suitable sum not being a kings ransom for the service.
If there is such a person, pm me at vk3st@ian-foster.com please.

Did you also try the tool from comment #7 but with only the first part of your serial number? (Have to edit the serial number in the source code, then compile and run. Make sure to also set all the options in the source code to TRUE first.)

I looked. At it and could not seem to get it to compile without error.
What is recommended compiler please and sorry but has been many years since compiling scripts etc so am a bit slow in this area.

I've been reading through this thread - anyone know the situation with the more modern series of R&S equipment (e.g. RTE / RTO series of scopes).

R&S seem to base their designs on a couple of platforms, with occasional "mid-life" upgrades of the underlying HW (and OS - usually embedded Windows of some kind). The RTE / RTO platform is common and Win7 / Win10 embedded. with license key support for temporary and time limited licenses as well as portable licenses and license de-activation.

Anyone confirm whether these can be played with?

Hello Folks, anyone who has working with RTO scope oscilloscope (model 10 24 ) ? If so, could you help me. I tried to save the x-y axis waveform in .csv.
When I tried it, only the y-axis (voltage was salved). I need also, the Time axis. How to set to both ? I tried to find that "basic" info with manual, but there is no it....
Or it doesnt work to that Oscilloscope? kind regards  for comments,

Hello,

did anybody try to enable options for signal generators like SMIQ, SME?
I did try different combinations on a SME which expects a 6-digit activation key without luck. The serial number is same as the others xxxxxx/xxx.

Any hints are highly appreciated.

BR,

to my knowledge, no one has succeeded so far hacking any recent R&S scope (incl. RTO's, which have their crypto stuff on a smart card inside the scope, btw), although I'd like to be wrong ! RTB & RTA firmware files/updates are encrypted, and I've never seen anything able to decrypt those either... (which would be a starting point for further 'research'...)

Yeah, I have a RTB2004 but it's a fully optioned 5k instrument. Not touching that unless someone has a spare with a busted frontend or something and I can experiment with it.

may I ask what options on SMIQ/SME you want to enable? I don't know how it can be done but if there is any useful option that can be hacked
I would be very interested to do it. As I remember most of the 'good' options are hardware options for which you need a HW module. Software options were not many and they didn't seem very interesting to me at least

I have here at the moment only a SME where I would like to play a bit with the POCSAG Protocol (pagers) option SME-B42. The required hardware options are available. There are as well B41 and B43 software options which are at the moment not of interest for me.
As far as I can tell for the SMIQ the options >B42 (Digital Standard IS-95 CDMA) and >K11 (Digital Standard IS-95 CDMA) are software options. I think they just require the modulation coder/data generator and memory.
How good is your i960 assembly? :)
