    Using VCDS for car shopping

    My understanding is that the UK system of driving on the left side of the road dates back to the days of mounted Knights, who would pass on the left side so the person passing was on their dominant (sword-wielding) side, should they need to attack/defend. It's surprising therefore, given...

    Crafter compatibility

    An (anonymised and edited) example of a problematic one: VCDS -- Windows Based VAG/VAS Emulator Running on Windows 10 x64 VCDS Version: 22.3.0.1 (x64) HEX-V2 CB: 0.4613.4 Data version: 20220225 DS336.1 www.Ross-Tech.com VIN: WV1ZZZ2EZD60***** License Plate: *******...

    Crafter compatibility

    In the UK the LT3 was branded as the Crafter. The Crafter Mk2 (2017-on) is pure VAG, and works fine. The LT3 / Crafter Mk1 ('06-'16) is a horrible VW/MB mish-mash, and some modules (notably ABS/ESP on some models) cannot currently be covered with VCDS.

    Possible to Correct Mileage in Cluster Swap for B5?

    My understanding has always been that VCDS can perform a one-time mileage increase on a virgin cluster, but won't adjust a used unit.

    Yeah, as I said in my original post about it: ...but as nothing obvious stops working when I end-task it, and it's not listed in the Task Manager startup tab, I don't know which device / driver is causing it to run in the first place.

    Sorry, been off for a few days over Easter so I've only just seen this. Haven't found a permanent work-around as I don't know what device(s) the WDF thing is used by. I don't regularly use VCDS on that machine, so I've just been killing the process manually when I do. I was hoping RT would...

    After much faffing, I've figured out what is interfering with VCDS finding HEX-V2 interfaces on my laptop. I had the bright idea of seeing if another process was using high CPU when VCDS was timing out, and hey presto!: The culprit appears to be "Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver...

    USB-C Cables

    At the risk of dragging up an old thread, Ross-Tech now offer official USB-C cables for HEX-V2 and HEX-NET interfaces (with the thumbscrew to lock the other end in). We have just received stock of them in the UK this week: https://www.gendan.co.uk/product_VCUSBC.html Ross-Tech list them here...

    I'd already been doing that :(

    Yes, Win11 still has MSConfig. Safe mode - works OK! So that would suggest there's something else running that's interfering. Selective startup with all non-MS services and all startup items disabled still hangs :( I don't understand how it only affects V2, not HN though :confused:

    Lenovo Yoga 510-14AST AMD A9-9410 8GB RAM Windows 11 Home, upgraded from Windows 10 via the Windows Insider Programme. Technically not up to the Win 11 specs as the CPU is not on Microsoft's list, but I've not encountered any other problems so far... (It's the PC we've used on Windows 10 at...

    Hmm, we're seeing oddities here. With a HEX-V2: - VCDS hangs on the interface test (and never times out) - VCIConfig reports "Unable to open interface, it may be in use...", but then finds the S/N, and successfully updates the firmware (albeit repeating the error message during the updates)...

    General Corona Virus Discussion

    As opposed to a private company with no agenda, such as the paragon of virtue that is Fox News? State funded doesn't necessarily mean biased or corrupt 🙄

    Steering assist ECU issue

    Once you've updated, take another Auto Scan. If you still have the problem, please post the full scan log (not just the gateway installation list as above) in here. Instructions on doing that are here: :thumbs: https://forums.ross-tech.com/index.php?threads/101/

    @topcat2006 We've dug out a (well-used) HEX+CAN interface. If you're willing to test that out on the Crafter and give feedback to Ross-Tech, we'll post that out on Monday to the same address you used for your HEX-V2 order. Is that ok with you?
