Hi all,
First time posting so be gentle!

Got a cable and would appreciate help in getting this working.
Steps I have tried are;
Downloaded VCDS 20.4.2 software on Windows 7 (also tried this on a Windows 10 PC with the same results as below)
Connected cable, when pressing Options-Test I get the following message:

This is the USB driver that is shown as present on the laptop:

So I next tried installing the 32bit software on the 64bit System-still no change.
Finally I tried running the VCI Config but as the interface is not found it does not appear on the Interface dropdown menu.
Note: When the cable is connected to the laptop only and also to the car I have a single solid green light on the interface.

Many thanks
Col

Please insert the photo cable You purchased or the serial number from label to make it easier to see where the problem is.

From where did you buy this unit? That is, from which of our listed distributors did you buy? They will support you if you call.

Unfortunately it was an internet purchase.
After looking into this from many posts how can I tell if it is genuine?

Can I post the serial number here?

Thanks

Yes, You can.

I tried to follow the links to the photos, without success. Try [View Image] option after uploading and forwarding that link here.

Serial number = 000000, whenever you see this it's 99.9999999999999999999999999999999% certain to be a pirated copy.

Do you know if there are some pirated copies out there with something that looks like an actual serial number on the interface ? I saw one of those on an ads website and it made me wonder whether that was a copy or not.
