Auto closing all the windows, sunroof and the liftgate.

I had a wiring harness installed behind the COMAND that allowed me to lock the car and auto close all the windows, sunroof and even the liftgate at one touch of the close button on the keyfob..
I had to remove the harness when I upgraded my COMAND screen to the new 10.25 inch Android screen, no room behind the head unit, however I miss that feature.
Is there a way to activate that feature using StarDiag / Xentry?
The car has Keyless Go.

This auto open & close convenience feature has been standard in MB vehicles for 20 + years. You press and hold the lock or unlock button. Not sure why you had to add anything to engage it.

"...... allowed me to lock the car and auto close all the windows, sunroof and even the liftgate at one touch of the close button..."
I didn't need to push and hold the button and wait until everything closed, I could just push the close button once and walk away, everything closed completely.
It was very convenient.
As it is now I can't close the liftgate form the keyfob no matter how long I keep pushing it..

MB doesn't allow closing trunk via remote as safety measure. Even with cabin switch you have to hold it - just like windows closing.
Still works with foot waving.
Unfortunately convenience here doesn't meet safety.
I remember something from manual that on W212 with keyless go you can close the windows by holding door handle.
On older models you could do that by keeping metal key turned.

90% of the time I use the feature to open all windows and my pano roof to cool the car when baking in the sun. It also turns on my ventilated seats at the same time. Iím less inclined to use the close feature, as I canít remember any time when I exited my car with all of the windows open.

I used the below VIM (Video In Motion) unlock interface that has a few additional option.
I removed the COMAND unit, installed the interface inline with the original cabling and it worked like a charm. I was able to open all doors, windows, and the sunroof with double pressing the open button on the key fob.
And was able to close everything, including the lift-gate, by pressing the close button once.
So, if it can be done by the interface it can be done using Xentry or Vediamo.
Hence my original question, does anyone know how to do it?
