Current Beta x64 

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 10.4  includes the following:

  • All Features introduced in Beta 10.3; details on this page.  

  • Native x64-bit build of VCDS.
    64-bit operating systems are clearly the future. VCDS has always been as future-proof as possible.  It has run on every new version of Windows the day that version of Windows was released.    Of course the regular 32-bit version of VCDS "runs" on 64-bit versions of Windows too, but sooner or later, 32-bit support is going to go away, much as 16-bit support already has.    

  • Native x64-bit builds VC-Scope, TDI-Graph, and CSVConv. Yes, the whole ball of wax; it's all 64-bit native code!

Release Notes:

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

  • Works on  XP-64, Vista-64 and 64-bit versions of Windows 7 .   32-bit versions of Windows are NOT supported.   It won't even install on 32-bit systems.  

  • Although we realize that we have to continue to support 32-bit environments for some time to come in "Release" versions for the masses, we expect all future Betas to be x64 only.  The reality is, everyone who actually bothers to give us feeback on Beta versions is a major geek anyway and probably has a 64-bit Windows already.

  • Default installation location is C:\Ross-Tech\VCDS-x64\. If allowed to install to its default location, it will not overwrite or interfere with any other version you've got installed.

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