    HEX-V2 interface and update

    Hello,

    I got hex-v2 with VCDS version 17.8.0. I followed the instructions but I encountered an error while performing the hardware test.
    The system could not find an interface. So I tried to update the software to 19.6.1 and then tried the configuration procedure. Unfortunately in configuration I do not have the choice of Interface.
    Where is the problem? I went through the forum and found nothing.
    Thank you for your help

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Serial number H10-000000

    What you have there is a clone, NOT a genuine Ross-Tech interface

    It means you've been sold a counterfeit, and you should check what steps you can take in the Czech Republic to report the seller to the Authorities so they can be prosecuted and/or fined.

    Plus you need to "take it on the chin" and buy a genuine HEX-V2 - then we we will be able to help you

    If he had bought an original, he would not have this problem and wouldn't need our help... I've never got software with the interfaces...

    As Uwe pointed out to me recently, where a Ross-Tech agent has created an alternative language version of VCDS that is normally supplied on a CD, so coming with a CD is not automatically proof that an interface is counterfeit.

    Some do, some don't.

    But if the CD has a stylized panda face on it, that's a sure sign that it's not legit.

    If Resellers provide software, it would be the most recent version of a version prior... 17.8.x seems really old to me. In the Netherlands the resellers provide us a download link to download the Dutch version!
