Default NCS Expert (Profiles & Backup)

Hello Guys,

I am all set otherwise to program, however; still not comforteable about a couple of things. Before I dig into, I thought its better to get answers rather than mess them up :).

1. I installed the software and am able to communicate with the car, however; I got stuck creating another profile using "ExpertMode". I did that, but that new profile always pops up an error when trying to get the VIN of the car (even though, "ExpertMode" and some other profiles communicate with the car without any problem (and I googled that error msg, didnt get anything ).

I saw online that a number of people are using few profiles that were included within the installation, instead of creating a new one. My question is, what is the purpose of creating a new profile, instead of using the old ones? The way I see it, there are two kinds of profiles that we are using, one to only read (to be safe), and the other to read and write... right?

2. I would like to know what would be my exit strategy if I mess up . Some people are talking about using a blank .MAN file, and some are saying that is the wrong way of doing that? What should I do?

As I understand, whenever I read a module, I it would over write the existing .MAN file, and I should back it up before changing... right??? Its not very clear...

Will really appreciate your help and support .

Thanks again for the help and support.
