    What's the most straightforward method of achieving this?

    Got it, thanks Uwe

    Can I "make/create" an .lbl or .xpl file for a module if I'm connected to a car in real time and somehow store/save that so I can load it offline at a later date?

    Cheers

    If you can load it off-line at a later date, so can everyone else. The whole point of encrypting them is to prevent that.

    Keep asking how to defeat the protections we've put in place, and sooner or later, I may end up thinking you're up to something nefarious.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Noted Uwe, and I can assure you far from it.

    It was just for my personal use. As I do a lot of retrofits for people I do a lot of coding deciphering at my desk in the warm instead of in the cold garage, so it was for that reason I was asking so I could work on this stuff like that

    No issue whatsoever and I'm far from upto anything evil or sinister...

    Cheers

    You may have to consider what Spacewalker said about that "virtual module" idea.

    The third party Android app OBDeleven does save the long coding and labels for offline use so you can mentally visualize the retrofit changes you would want to for a customer. The caveat is that you would have to SCAN the car first and the relevant modules, so that the labels are available offline on your smartphone. They haven't implemented making adaptations available offline. Of course, they changed some of the wording for the labels so it doesn't look like an except from VCDS.
