2 Ways to exchange VVDI MB FBS3 Smart Key Frequency

Similar as Xhorse VVDI BE key pro, users can exchange the VVDI MB FBS3 keylessgo smart keyfrequency between 315MHz and 433MH.
The reusable FBS3 smart key is compatible with most Mercedes key programmers on the aftermarket.
2 Ways to exchange frequency:
Method 1:
If you have VVDI MB Tool, it is easy to change frequency in vvdi mb software (update software to latest version)
Select Other Function-> Set key remote frequency/ Update MB smart key 
change-vvdi-fbs3-smart-key-frequency-1
You can set frequency between 315MHz and 433MHz

Xhorse VVDI Software Failed to Install on Windows 10 Solution

Problem:
Anyone had problems with VVDI MB on Windows 10? I have version 5.03.
However, the application keeps deleting itself! I am told by our computer support it is not anti-virus issues. I have tried to update to 5.05 but it says it is not compatible with my computer. Dell E5450 i5. Any ideas?
Solution:
Xhorse engineers have tested vvdi tools software on WinXP, Win7, Win8 and Win10 all ok.
If you have problem running vvdi software on Windows 10, here’s the common solutions:
1. It may to be windows problem. Install again win 10 but make sure it’s good quality because some people had same issue and did reinstall with another win 10
2. Disable all the firewall etc. There is a way if doing it permanently if you look on the web.
3. Open windows security and check the threats it was be highlighted, just click allow. This happens on vvdi2 and vvdi prog even after days of it being fine.
4. Windows defender, firewall and any anti-viruses will always cause problems, because the vvdi software doesn’t have microsoft certification etc.  Stop anti-virus or windows defender or any program for virus detects i haved same problem and solved by this way.

Will VVDI MB Program Benz W221 All Keys Lost?

Question: I have Mercedes Benz W221 without keys. I tried to read data with VVDI MB Tool, no success with or without power adapter. I have cable for W221. With that cable I can read EIS with IR, but not with OBD. VVDI MB cannot connect. I also have VVDI prog, but I cannot find how connect to this unit. It is almost like W164, but it is little bit different.
According to Xhorse support this unit is not readable by any VVDI device. For reference I uploaded images.
