Hello Guys,

So I updated the VCDS , I tried Beta, Release , local internet, vpn , other county as well, I always get "VCDS was not able to reach the server (error code : -4) " any idea how I can have this fixed ?

I don't mind to always go to the website and get the newest version and then do the install again but I did a mistake while I was In a hurry and I actually deleted the VCDS folder with the initial scan and all the log so if we have that update function there I wanted to know if we can use it as well.

Thanks.

Aurelian

Hello Aurelian,

Personally, I usually do a Copy/Paste [Logs] folder from C:\Ross-Tech\VCDS in My Documents and then install a newer version from here or Beta.

This takes 5 minutes.;)

Check your HOSTS file to see if there's anything in there that might be blocking Ross-Tech.com.
