    Question Registering without Windows?

    Good Afternoon,

    I purchased a new HEX-NET from Roseland Technical Services and have successfully created the "Cloud Account" (adamsherman). But I'm not sure if this device is "registered"? I do not have access to post in the support forums area.

    Did I miss a step?

    Thanks,

    A.

    You'll need to find a Windows machine, or send it back to Roseland, who can certainly "pre-register" it for you.

    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.

    Darn, that really takes away from the awesomeness of a platform independent system, too bad.

    Can I use a friend's laptop, who is already setup with VCDS and his own (probably older) dongle? Or will that confuse his own setup?

    Yeah, we understand that. If we could ever come to terms with weird behavior of HID stuff under Mac OS, we'd publish a Mac version of VCIConfig, the utility that you need to register.

    Provided his VCDS is more-or-less current and up-to-date, yes, that should be no problem. You can just run VCIConfig manually on it, without ever starting VCDS, and his VCDS will never be the wiser.

    Or if you do it via VCDS, once you're done, all he has to do is to run [Options] -> [Test] -> [OK] -> [Save] with his interface plugged in to let VCDS know his interface is back.

    My VCDS-Cloud account is adamsherman, is there anything else I need to do in order to become verified?
