Hello All:

I started to test the HEX-NET out on the Lamborghini Aventador today, and after connecting to the interface in Access Point mode, I began an Autoscan.

The VCDS beta application (14.5.2) polled the CAN controller, then the Instrument Cluster Controller, then presented the following application message to me:



I'm perplexed by this, because I have already registered this interface via "the Cloud", etc., as mentioned in a post I made a few days ago.

After the above message was presented, I couldn't do very much else with that car and this interface.

VCDS-Mobile along with Cloud registration and VCDS Licensing are two separate things. What do you see on the About screen of VCDS?

A rather long serial number, and Licence Status that says 'Valid/Activated'.

Ah, wait, my mistake: Although I was using the 14.x beta version for the work I was doing with the HEX-NET, I just went back and checked the headers of my log files, and saw that for that particular instance, I had launched the 12.x release version instead of the beta (this with the HEX-NET connected). So, the screen-shot above is of release 12.x, not release 14.x.

My apologies.

Hi mates,


a few days ago I have the same problem, on my Golf MK5 can not change the long coding and adaptation, my interface is suddenly unregistered / unauthorized.

This is the screen of the about page:



This is instead the error message I get when I try to change long coding or adaptation of any module:



I use the vcds for many years and never happened this thing, my job is having problems due to this anomaly.

Someone can help me?

Very many thanks, Uwe, you are the best! Now all is working!



Finally three questions:

Why did it happen?
It can happen again?
If yes I can always use the file you sent me?

I don't know.
I can't rule it out.
Yes, it should work the same.

I am having a similar issue with my HEX-NET. I have reinstalled v14 but same error. I am pretty sure I am registered, etc. Any ideas?

Hello Uwe,

I have this same problem (license required) for some options in vcds.
Wenn the problem occures the icense is active. What i try to do is to raise the spoiler on my Aventador model 2014 via the Aerodynamics options on a Windows 10 laptop.
My license info is in the link:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/zwxrnwh2f1j72p7/License.png?dl=0

Would be nice if you could help me.

Arthur
