does anyone know how to enable options for a DVRG? I have two of them, but one of them is missing one of the previously installed options after a HDD crash  :-BROKE

I have all the HDD images, but couldn't find something key-related.

Newbie here for everything.

Got 2 old units FSH3, one is fully operational type 13 from 2005 (with tracking generator SN103585 Firmware V10.00),  the other one is from 2004 (base model 03 with preamp SN 102121)  which seems to have a corrupt Firmware V7.20 cause the frequency range shows random numbers i.e Center -1.656726599e+181; despite all keys and menus are functional the only response I got for the instrument is for Manual BW to 1Mhz  and Span 0hz,  all others shows Out of Range. 

I had try to look for firmware update and found a file on R&S site for the new version with TV features which I am not sure if it will be suitable for the old units. Furthermore, I had not been able to find the Optical Rs232 cable interface  neither the software tools needed to perform the update, I guess there is plenty of this items stocked at R&S at considerable price.

After reading this post I downloaded the file on post #7. Unfortunately,  I wont have access to the files until I have a way to communicate with the units. Does anyone know what is the pinout / transceiver configuration for the optical rs232?

Thanks in advance for help

Sincerely

Patty.

The Fluke 190 rs232  interface is suitable for tryouts but the closes one is from the Fluke 279/289.

Found this DIY rich in info as part of my own answer :DIY optical link cable for the Fluke Scopemeter 190 series http://omapalvelin.homedns.org/fluke/

After assembly and testing on HyperTerminal  at 19200bps I was able to send a few commands and had response for GD (Get Down), SO (Switch ON)  and RI (Reset Instrument). ID (instrument ID) , IS (Instrument status) and RT,RD and others returned nothing. Down to 9600 bps minimum for FSH3 and checking the RX signal on oscilloscope shows a lot of noise and missing data at the output of the IR comparator. 

The info and pictures of the 189 interface in this blog motivated to keep me going : http://kimboricha.blogspot.com/2013/12/build-usb-to-fluke-189-irinfrared.html even though none of the suggestions and mods worked

The two transistor darlington configuration was the solution for the high speed required : https://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/391266/high-speed-infrared-uart-link-with-photodiode

Confirmed optical Rs232 interface working by Hyperterminal, any command sent  replied using mirror( a spoon is better) and when connected to FSH3 I sent ID enter  returned all R&S info and firmware version.  Observed  a nice square wave modulated when tested with a TV remote. Tested the home made Rs232 interface with both instruments and FSH viewer connected a 19200bps.


Firmware updated fix the FSH3 Frequency range anomaly.

Have found version 13  of FSH viewer here: http://www.korearental.co.kr/cData/CDATA_PDS_VIEW.ASPX?IDX=250&Cate=1&bbscode=7,2,0, .
And Version 14.2 is here: https://uloz.to/file/B41l7yCShG9O/fshview-v14-20-setup-exe?showDialog=1

The new firmware update ver. 14 is a self extracting file and is suitable for all old FSH 3 ,6,18 but requires FSH Viewer 14 and up Installed .

IF administrator have a way to let me upload somewhere the two 10MB FSH Viewer installers I will be happy to do it before the links disappear 

I got some progress on the option keys from my serial 102121.

Hello, I need the R & S option key TSMU-K35 for RF scan with my TSMU devices. Unfortunately, R & S does not sell it to private individuals.

For example, Option Key 15 looks like this:
 
1. TSMU
<! DOCTYPE KeyInstallation>
<KeyInstallation format_id = "0" content_type = "OptionKey" device_id = "1153.6000k02 / 100449" material_description = "Radio Network Analyzer (default)" model_name = "TSMU">
 <OptionKeyData material_no = "1153.4595.02" format_id = "0" option_index = "15" start_date = "" full_name = "TSMU-K15" creation_date = "2006-07-27" customer_order_no = "109171" duration = "" key_type = "Customer Order" license_count = "1" option_type = "K15" activation_type = "Permanent" />
 <OptionKey format_id = "0" key = "213827836019817947172267609678" license_count = "1" />
</ KeyInstallation>

I still have examples for other keys and other devices.

Can someone help me

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
sn: 835068.005  id: 02 option key: 2277388772  desc: feat_2
sn: 835068.005  id: 03 option key: 2328386865  desc: feat_3
sn: 835068.005  id: 04 option key: 0302356071  desc: feat_4
sn: 835068.005  id: 05 option key: 3024766616  desc: feat_5
sn: 835068.005  id: 06 option key: 4252011699  desc: feat_6
sn: 835068.005  id: 07 option key: 4056071223  desc: TIME DOMAIN, B2, Time Domain Measurements
sn: 835068.005  id: 08 option key: 0436723430  desc: CONVERTER 4 CHAN, C4C, 4 Channel Converter
sn: 835068.005  id: 09 option key: 1234299954  desc: EMBED DEEMBED, K9, Virtual Embedding Networks
sn: 835068.005  id: 10 option key: 0493488890  desc: feat_A

Which method did you use to get the code? The python script mentioned in #21 does not give me the same results.

Code: [Select]
from Crypto.Cipher import ARC2
import struct

serial = 835068
serial2 = 005
option = 9

record = struct.pack("<II", serial, serial2 + (option <<20))
encyphered = ARC2.new("Revision\0").encrypt(record)
print encyphered.encode("hex")

I get:

Code: [Select]
24147d39d5347618


My ZVR displays the Serial Number 100041/061 and has several options installed (attached the options.init file). However I would like to get the rest :)

Hello
Can anyone convert the script into Python 3.6? Been struggling for too long with converting it but there are just a few things im not familiar with..

Assuming you're talking about the generator for CMU200 and related boxes, I have already ported it. You can get it here http://gotroot.ca/cmu200/cmuopts.py . You'll need to also install the pycrypto module (pip3 install pycrypto).

AND IT WORKS LIKE A CHARM
No problems AT ALL...
Even tho you gotta give it a few thoughts that you need to add the whole serial number but just took a few seconds to figure out!

yes it should work. most hardware options usually work out of he box. software options need keys to be generated

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?

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-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.

Hello,

FSE/FSIQ Analyzers: any clue what seeds for these options in order to generate the keys ?

FSE-K4  Phase Noise Measurement Software,           
FSE-K3  Noise Measurement Software   

I tried all the seeds in the obove list (from previous post)  but none gave these options.


Thanks

Hi,

I have try the FSP code generator for post nr. 7 (compiled the C code from the attachment ) for some FSP analyzer that already have the installed option and it seams that the generator does not produce the right keys. I have also try the software without using the extensions (only the serial number as some users suggests ) after the serial number (SN:"xxxxxx/"extention") and combinations but without any luck.
So for instrument with the SN:100218/013 for K5 the intrument has valid key value :0129995137 and k73 :3470174034
Running the C produce the following output:

0129996165 - K5  - GSM/EDGE Application Firmware                                                                       
2115523187 - K7  - AM/FM/PM Measurement Demodulator                                                                     
2038900723 - B17 - IQ Online                                                                                           
18446744073588054323 - K84 - 1xEV-DO BTS Application Firmware
................................................................................................

As can be seen,in this case, from the above the are some similarities  for K5 with the working key but is not what we expect.
Program:     0129996165
working key:0129995137

for k73 i have no clear seed to compare in the program


second example :

Intrument SN
char SerString []   = {"100548/030"};

produces for K8 :
                                                             
18446744072697944362 - K8  - Bluetooth Application Firmware                                                           
 
but the working key of the instrument is :2746489130

I read that the application has been used to generate valid key for FSP but i was not able to verify the usability.
Does anybody has an working example pair (SN-Keys ) that has been verified (for  all options  listed by the C software  so i can test it in my development)
What am i missing here?

Also another aspect that will be welcomed is to explain the decrypt side of the C software
So because ARC is symmetric key block cipher i was expect to encode the SN to a key and when decode the previous encoded key using the same C sw to find the SN. But this was not the case.So using the number in ex. 1 above, the Key for K5 generated by the C code is 0129996165.changing the code to decrypt
#define      DECRYPT      1
#define      ENCRYPT      0

and inputting the above key
char KeyString []   = {"0129996165"};   

the program generate:

1168528319 - K5  - GSM/EDGE Application Firmware                                                                     
0718055252 - K7  - AM/FM/PM Measurement Demodulator                                                                   
18446744072781050645 - B17 - IQ Online     
....................................................................     

As can be seen this does not correspond  to what we expect to find for K5 (apparentley no connection with the encoded side  even when comparing this with the seed for K5 :0x069AF1C1)

Can somebody please explain what i have missed here!

Thank you!

it seems you have done something wrong:
 
I changed only the following line:
Code: [Select]
from:
char SerString []    = {"xxxxxx/xxx"};        // Seriale dello strumento
to:
char SerString []    = {"100218/013"};        // Seriale dello strumento 
I just recompiled the program and I got the following output:
 
0129995137 - K5  - GSM/EDGE Application Firmware
2115523187 - K7  - AM/FM/PM Measurement Demodulator

 0129995137 - K5  - GSM/EDGE Application Firmware
seems to me correct.

-m32 is your friend.

That, or have a machine so old and crusty that 32 bit is the default.

The visual studio project was set for generating a Win32 EXE, not a Win64 one.
BTW, the code was not mine: I just "found" it!

Hi,
Some these questions will be trivial, sorry - I'm not SW guy.
Comming for a while for SMIQ topic.
I have 2 generators one partially dead with options(hdr/sft) and one working but naked. I've moved some modules to this naked one - but as you guess it is necessary to install them with keys.
This partially dead has following numbers:
S/N: 832870/0020
Factory installation key: 352664
Options:
SMIQ-B42 (1104.7936.02), installation key:553631
SMIQB11 1085.4502.04
SMIQB19 1085.2997.02
SMIQB20 1125.5190.02

This naked has following numbers:
S/N: 100587/0036
Factory installation key: 642681

My question is how to use this Python script listed in the posts here to generate installation keys for these options above for my naked generator. I understand that I have to place there  serial number 100587/0036 but what about codes for these options ?  Smiq rather not basing on any operating system. So it is not possible to read some files like in CMU. It has some EEPROM on it - but not sure what data it keeps there.
The other observation is that key should be 6 digit number - but may be not ?

Any suggestions how to start with this ?

And that's why it worked for you. It didn't work for Cristian2020 because he was compiling in 64 bit mode. I haven't even compiled or run the code, but the integer lengths and misalignment in the printout make me 95% sure that was his problem.

I'm trying repeat an operation that artag described in reply 21, after some playing with success.

After small Internet investigation about values representation and modifications in newer Python:
Code: [Select]
import binascii
import sys
from Crypto.Cipher import ARC2
import struct
import struct
serial = 103086
serial2 = 2
option = 45

record = struct.pack("<II", serial, serial2 + (option <<20))
print(record)
cipher = ARC2.new(b"Revision\0", ARC2.MODE_ECB)
encyphered = cipher.encrypt(record)
msg = binascii.hexlify(encyphered)
msglist = []
for letter in str(msg):
    msglist.append(letter)
msglist.remove("b")
msglist.remove("'")
msglist.remove("'")
for letter in msglist:
    print(letter, end="")
print("")

It gives exactly 11b26d02cee94bea,

and below the final version, maybe  usefull for someone - nothing more than artag made some years ago, just in newer python version:
Code: [Select]
import binascii
import sys
from Crypto.Cipher import ARC2
import struct

serial = 103086
serial2 = 2
#option = 10


sample = open('SWOPT.dat', 'w')

for option in range(10,50):
    record = struct.pack("<II", serial, serial2 + (option <<20))
    cipher = ARC2.new(b"Revision\0", ARC2.MODE_ECB)
    encyphered = cipher.encrypt(record)
    msg = binascii.hexlify(encyphered)
    msglist = []
    for letter in str(msg):
        msglist.append(letter)
    msglist.remove("b")
    msglist.remove("'")
    msglist.remove("'")
    for letter in msglist:
        print(letter, end="", file=sample)
    print("",file=sample)

sample.close()

KEY = b"Revision\0"
STRUCT_TWO_UNSIGNED_INTS = "<II"
for line in open("SWOPT.DAT"):
    if len(line) == 17:
         cipher = ARC2.new(KEY, ARC2.MODE_ECB)  # a new ARC2 cipher with the right key (ARC2 is a symmetric block cipher, we need a new cipher for each ciphertext)
         ciphertext = bytes.fromhex(line.strip()) # Decode our ciphertext from hex, removing whitespace from the start and end
         plaintext = cipher.decrypt(ciphertext)  # Decrypt the cyphertext using the key
         a, b = struct.unpack(STRUCT_TWO_UNSIGNED_INTS, plaintext)  # unpack two unsigned ints from the plaintext
         print ("SN: %d - %08x" % (a, b))

And now fundamental question - how to get the 6 digit code that is the key for option in SMIQ generator ?
If this can be used for SMIQ somehow ?
Do I have to install this visual studio program listed in reply 7 and try to play with or it is some other option to extract it ?

Hi Everyone,

Does anybody has any progress on this topic for the Rohde&Schwarz UPL audio analyzer? How to enable the options?

Thanks so much!

I can confirm that the problem get solved using compiler for 32Bit.

Thank's  for suggestions!

PS:

SMIQ has some interesting options to be unlocked like arbitrary modulation ,ber testing ..etc.

It will be very useful to have this options but the problem remain (what is the 6 digit magic number key)

BR,

Anyone know how to enable the option on the FSH6? I tried to buy this Key but R&S says they cant generate keys anyone because they have discontinued this product. It just sounds so lillogical I cant even believe they would say something like this. I want to send them money and all that they have to do is generate a key on their PC.

If someone knows a dealer that generates keys that i can buy one for I would be happy to buy it. Moral of the story is buy the options you need before they discontinue them. Test equipment seems to have a very short support life these days especially from R&S

Hi all,

I have an R&S ZVH4. I would like to add options, do you think this is possible?

it's annoying to see that you manage to activate options on CMUs and to say that maybe on ZVH it is not possible,

thank you

Looks like the ZVH product line is still available in the US:
https://www.rohde-schwarz.com/us/product/zvh-productstartpage_63493-11194.html?rusprivacypolicy=0

Maybe you can try and check with the US dealer for your license. They are selling the product, they should also be able to send you an activation code.

Do you think they do bussiness(money) on hobbysts who play with 15 or more years old, 2nd hand equipment ? There is nothing illogical in what they do. Try to understand how much you can pay them and then compare it to recent price of their equipment and options attached. Why they should sell option to equipment they do not sell anymore and even if they would, I see how would you pay some k$ for license ;) I do not defend them but their repair support is long anyhow. And I also understand that they do not want to talk with such hoobysts like we are. An each hour of enginner costs. If you are not happy you can chose other equipment right ? ;) We have to live with this situation and be happy there are contributors who spend time on repairing/hacking some equipment and share it on forum to help others.
Do not take my message as attack - just basic logic justifies their behavior
