    WSC removal

    Hi Glyn Yes, that's no problem. Open VCDS, right click the small icon in the top left corner of the VCDS front screen, and choose "Delete config file and close" That will reset VCDS back to how it was when you first installed it Best regards Derek

    Hello Would you post an autoscan from one (or both) of the cars please. I think Ross-Tech will need it so they can see which files are missing and if they should have been there (if you delete your install, and re-install, don't forget to copy the logs, scans and debug folders somewhere so...

    Audi A6 C7 headlight problem

    Hello The fault code shows as "intermittent" which means it is not currently faulty. This could be because there was a problem in the past and the fault code was not cleared, or that the fault only happens sometimes I would clear the code and see if it comes back. If it does come back, check...

    Upgrade to Windows 10

    Hi Rob If you're doing an upgrade straight from Windows 7 to Windows 10 rather than removing 7 and starting from scratch, VCDS will most likely still work after the upgrade without any thing else doing. But if you do need to reinstall VCDS, the license is stored in the interface you plug into...
