    CodingLog and AdpLog, little safety nets for you.

    ALWAYS RUN AUTO-SCAN AND SAVE BEFORE YOU MAKE SOFT CODING CHANGES!! WRITE DOWN ADAPTATION VALUES BEFORE CHANGING!!

    Whenever Soft Coding or Adaptation values are changed, VCDS will save information about the changes in one of two CSV files:

    • Soft coding changes are logged in a CodingLog.CSV.
    • Adaptation changes are logged in a AdpLog.CSV.

    Any time a soft coding or adaptation change is made, a new record is added to the bottom of the respective file. Each record has the type of data separated by a comma (,).

    These 2 files will be in the \DeBug folder, in most cases here:
    C:\Ross-Tech\VCDS\Debug

    Or if you are running a Beta version of VCDS, found here:
    C:\Ross-Tech\VCDS-Beta\Debug




    [Coding - 07]
    • Address
    • VAG Number
    • Coding Type (Long or Short)
    • Original Value
    • New Value
    • Shop Information
    • Time Stamp

    The CodingLog.CSV and AdpLog.CSV can be viewed with Windows Notepad. While Ross-Tech has provided this safety net, it is not fool proof... you, the end user of VCDS, are responsible for your actions, or lack of.

    The CSV files are not altered with VCDS updates. If you use VCDS on different computers, the files are not synced with each other. It would be wise to back up these files every so often, you can email them to yourself.

    VCDS 15.7.4 and older used CodingLog.TXT and AdpLog.TXT files.

    Not really, because of this here.

    I hope Eric may join the discussion as I have a few programming ideas of how to accomplish the correct logging. I appreciate the 'DoIt_Click' may run off the end of the Sub before the new header is returned so it may be difficult to manage directly in the DoIt_Click Sub; but with a few strategically placed global flags...?

    I don't know. Maybe not for open discussion here but PM me if required.

    I don't think VCDS-Mobile creates/maintains the equivalent of CodingLog.TXT yet.

    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.

    Hello. Maybe someone can give advice, links how to carry out coding. Give initial understanding in this matter. What should be launched in order to learn how to perform coding.

    What kind of car do you have? What do you wish to change?
