Important Note: Beta versions contain new features and functions that have not yet been as fully tested as have Release versions. If you use a Beta, you may find bugs or problems and you are expected to report them to Ross-Tech so that we can fix them before making a new Release.  Please be sure that you have also installed the latest Release on your computer  as well so that you can revert back to using that if you encounter problems with the Beta.  

Beta 10.3  includes the following and improvements:

  • All Features introduced in Beta 912; details on this page.  

  • UDS/ODX Data Files many new control modules.

  • Support for Transport Mode on the "Facelift" T5 vans.

  • Support for new control module addresses above 80.

  • Numerous minor bug-fixes and internal improvements
    aimed at being ready to support new models such as the D4 A8 when they are released.

  • Absolutely nothing worthy of screen-shots.  :-O

Release Notes:

  • Works only with Intelligent Interfaces (HEX, KEY and Micro-CAN).  

  • Works on Windows 2000, XP, Vista and 7.   Windows 95, 98 and ME are no longer supported.

  • Default installation location is C:\Ross-Tech\VCDS-Beta\. If allowed to install to its default location, it will not overwrite or interfere with the use of Release 908.

  • For controllers using the new UDS/ODX protocol, Fault Codes, Measuring Values, Output Tests, Adaptation and Basic Settings all require a control module-specific "data dictionary" file.    If a data dictionary file is not available for a specific control module, VCDS will show an obvious error message, in which case you should contact Support@Ross-Tech.com.  

  • The Copyright Notice, Disclaimer, and Instructions posted on our main download page apply to this version as well.


  • VCDS Beta 10.3 is no longer available for download.
    All features have been incorporated into Release 10.6 which is available from our Current Download Page.
