Ummm, are you waiting long enough for this thing to exit programming mode? It takes about a minute or so after you key in the exit program command for the system to return to normal operations mode. Only then should you try to jump back to program mode.

The downloader software can change the internal programming so that the methods of entering programming can be limited, for example, to _only_ via * + #.

By your description, you have correctly set the installer code to 4111. Once you are actually out of programming mode, check check to see if it actually works by keying in 4111 1.

If so you should be able to use it to set a master user code for normal arming and disarming.

The Vista 10se is the alarm equivalent of a old style VW Beetle, there's really not that much complexity in the thing.
