You must install VCDS on your PC's hard disk!
It may not work properly if you try running it directly from other media.
You do not need internet access while using VCDS, however, internet access is required to update the firmware in our current generation of interfaces (HEX-NET and HEX-V2). So make sure your interface firmware is up-to-date before trying to use VCDS someplace that doesn't have internet access.
Connect an appropriate interface between the computer and the car.
Turn the car's ignition switch ON. No need to start the engine.
Start the VCDS program:
Click [Options] and select the correct communications port.
Use [Test] to confirm that the program can use the port and find the interface.
Now Play. Make sure the software can reliably access all the control modules that it should in your car. See our Application Charts. Query Fault Codes from some modules.
Please check frequently for updates! If you're using VCDS on a PC that's on-line, it should tell you when there's an update available, but if in doubt, check this page.
Release 20.12 works with Windows 7, 8, and 10 (both 32-bit and 64-bit)
Earlier versions of Windows such as 2000, XP, and Vista might still work, but we no longer consider them supported.
VCDS does not work on Windows 10 running in 'S mode', because 'S mode' prevents software from being installed from any source other than the Microsoft Store. If wish to use VCDS on a computer that came with the 'S' version of Windows, you'll have to switch it to run in Home or Pro mode. Devices with ARM CPUs are NOT SUPPORTED.
Windows running in a VM (Parallels, Virtual Box, etc) may work but is not supported.
Windows 95, 98, ME, and NT4 definitely will not work.
Release 20.12 must be used with a licensed Ross-Tech interface. That includes all genuine HEX-, KEY-, KII-, or Micro-CAN series Interface of interfaces.
It does notwork with any third-party interfaces or some of the older 'low-tech' interfaces we made and sold before 2004.
If you're a registered user and have an older low-tech interface, you should consider our
interface upgrade program.
If you're not ready for an interface upgrade, you'll have to use VCDS-Lite instead.
All model-year 2019 and newer cars require one of our current interfaces.
Although this Release of VCDS still supports every interface Ross-Tech has sold since 2004, none of our legacy interfaces such as the HEX+CAN and Micro-CAN will work with 2019 model cars. If you intend to work with 2019 or newer cars and do not yet have a current interface, please contact your distributor or see this page for upgrade options.
Support for 'Mk.8' and ID.x chassis is premliminary.
Auto-Scan should work on these cars, as should most functions that read data, but SFD will limit changes in some control modules. Nonetheless, would appreciate scans and channel maps, preferably posted in our forum.
