No, what you're trying to do involves programming and updating SCN coding. That requires an account.

The prerequisites are listed before you click next.

Right now if you want to teach in a module and it requires online programming/SCN coding, it's pretty much dealer only. Or an indy who has the official kit. By official kit I mean the kit that's bought straight from MB, not chinese. Last I checked the cost is $36k for a genuine SDS kit....it comes with a subscription account too.

Teamviewer won't work, MB put a stop to that. No longer possible now.

Yes, people who have a chinese J2534 or Xentry are in the same situation. Unless they pony up for a J2534 subscription or a SDS, SOL.

so in the case where people setup a full blown version of Xentry with C4 ect, i.e something like BenzNinja and others I think has advertised to be able to do. then does that mean that these full-blown installs also require an account to do Teach-in's and SCN coding etc?
I'm not sure what you mean by this. Full blown Xentry is what you have now....read codes, clear codes, WIS, EPC, Vediamo, plus guided fault finding, etc. Programming an used module to the car is dependent on the module in question and the year of the car. On your W205, it's pretty much impossible, you need a subscription to get anything done.
