    VCDS Update 17.1

    After installing this update, I can't open the software. It says I need to locate the exe file. (Short cut) The file is missing in the ross-tech folder. It wasn't doing this before.
    Thanks for your support

    Type of computer?
    Version of Windows? 32-bit or 64-bit?
    Installation location?
    Was this an automatic update or did you download and install manually?

    Windows 10 64 bit. When I initially turned on my computer today it asked me if I wanted to update VCDS. I clicked yes. After installation, that message showed. (Could locate exe.) I tried multiple times to re-install. Installed the 32 bit also. Still didn't work.
    Thanks

    VCDS should be installed in the C:\Ross-Tech folder (the default location for the installer) and not in C:\Program Files folder (IIRC because of Windows permission issues).

    I've just installed VCDS 17.1 (updating from VCDS 16.8.4) with no problems on my 3 PCs (Win 8.1 32 bit & 64 bit and Win 10 32 bit) both as an automatic download and as a manual download using a browser.

    Scratching my head. Look in the folder and tell us what's there. Is VCDS.EXE the only thing missing?

    There is a VCDS exe file, on the Ross tech folder.. I right click and open the icon it's says exe....when I click on it nothing happens. It doesn't launch. Most likely I have a pc problem. I'll find other alternatives. Thanks for you response
