    I'm not Bruce, but I can answer your question. VCDS will work perfectly on a Windows 10 tablet. I have 2 tablets running Windows 10 and both run VCDS without a problem. The biggest issue is usually in finding a tablet with a full size USB A connector for the cable. An OTG adapter will work but those micro USB connectors in tablets can be damaged fairly easily. I prefer a tablet with a full size USB connector.

    Have Fun!

    Hi Don thanks for the info. I got a tablet Samsung Android and it will not work with my 10 year old VCDS. I will exchange it tomorrow for a Windows 10
    tablet. Is any particular one preferred?
    Thanks

    I have seen several that will work well. My personal favorite (because it is cheap) is branded as an RCA Cambio 10.1". It is a quad core Intel Atom with a detachable keyboard and it has a full size USB connector for your cable and that USB connector is on the tablet part (I've seen some nice ones with the USB on the keyboard part). The best part is that I only paid $89.95 for it at WalMart.com. You should be able to find it for under $100 (US).

    Have Fun!

    P.S. I also have a Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet which also runs Windows 10 but is only has a micro USB connector, so it is probably better suited for a HEX-NET interface (wi-fi). I have run VCDS on both computers without any problems but I find the 8" one a bit small for my old eyes.
