    Current Versions

    HEX-NET interface & VCDS-Mobile:
    CodeBlock: V0.4513
    FW: 0.256
    CFB: 0.10
    BL: 0.28
    Dataset: DS 60000055

    You can see these versions on the About page of VCDS-Mobile.

    Preferred: Use the native Windows utility for updating, configuring, or registering the HEX-NET. It is included with VCDS and accessible from the Options screen (see this thread).

    Alternative 1: Make sure your HEX-NET is connected to a network in Infrastructure mode and can access the internet.
    Click [Options] -> [Check for updates].

    Alternative 2: connect your HEX-NET to a computer and use the Java configuration utility:
    Windows/Linux: HexNetConfigV2.014.jar
    Mac OS: HexNetConfigV2.014

    Note for people who bought their HEX-NETs way back when and haven't updated them in just about forever: The new config utilities linked above are only compatible with CodeBlock 0.42xx and higher. You can only get from a CodeBlock below 0.42xx to something current with VCDS-Mobile per this thread. If you need to configure a HEX-NET that does not yet have CodeBlock 0.42xx, please use the older version of HexNetConfig here:
    Windows/Linux: HexNetConfigV1.963.jar
    Mac OS: HexNetConfigV1.963

    HEX-NET compatible VCDS for Windows: 19.6.1
    To update: In VCDS click [Options], select the User Interface and Identification tab, and then [Check for updates],
    or you can simply download and install any newer version from this page

    We will endeavor to keep the data in this post current.


    PS: If you can't get JAR files to run on a Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 PC, try Johann Löfflmann's Jarfix.

    Thank you, Uwe. I was actually thinking today about suggesting just such a thread. You beat me to it.

    Important Note: The first time you install CB v0.42xx, (from v0.41xx) you must do so using the web interface (VCDS-Mobile: [Options] -> [Check for Updates]. You cannot update from CB 0.41xx to CB 0.42xx using the PC-based utility. Once you've got a CB v0.42xx in your HEX-NET, the old utility v1.9xx is deprecated and can no longer be used. You should then replace it with the current utility, and you should be able to use the new utility for all updates after that. Of course, you should also be able to do updates via the web interface if you choose.

    Beta Versions:
    These updates are optional. If you are unsure, you do not need to do anything, you can stay on the release channel. If you accept some risks and wish to test the latest stuff, you can switch your interface to the beta update channel via the advanced tab in VCIConfig.

    May I suggest that when you guys update this thread that you add a new post simply stating "update" or something along with editing the first post and change log. That way the date on the thread will update and users will be able to see on what date an update was released. The 3/10/14 date is not changing because you're only editing the posts so I thought I was running the latest version only to discover I actually was not.

    I suppose I could always click on the thread first thing but figured this might help as well.

    VCDS Beta 14.2.3:

    * Fixes timing problem with TCP communications on some PCs/Network boards.
    * Shows what sub-nets it tried to find a HEX-NET on if it fails to find one.
    * Adds configurable Network timeout on Options screen when NET port is in use.
    * Shows mileage in Auto-Scans on cars using UDS instrument clusters
    * Shows real-ish dates in freeze-frame data even on cars that don't know the actual date.

    Requires latest Codeblock V0.4016, so if you haven't updated your HEX-NET itself recently, please do so first.
