    VCDS with Windows 10 on ARM CPUs

    Sticky Windows 11

    With the Windows 11 release imminent, we're starting to get questions. We haven't done much testing, but don't anticipate any real problems with VCDS who are using any our current interfaces (HEX-V2 or HEX-NET). If you have a current interface, you might have to un-check the "Install USB...

    2021-02-03 Forum Software Update

    The plan for today is to update XenForo from 2.1 to 2.2. Compared to the transition from vBulletin to XF 2.1, this should be relatively straightforward, without much change in the look and feel of the forum. @Santos plans to make the forum read-only at 3:30pm, do a complete backup, and then...
