Current Beta   

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 912.0  includes the following new features and improvements:

  • Basic Settings for latest Control Modules using UDS/ODX/ASAM protocols.
    As is the case for other functions under UDS, there are no longer any channel or group numbers.  Instead, the Basic Setting to be performed must be selected from a drop-down list:
      


    On UDS control modules which offer "Instructions", VCDS will automatically display them:







    In addition, UDS Measuring Values can be displayed simultaneously:


         

  • Added ability to view Measuring Values during UDS Output Tests.  This can be handy to verify that certain outputs are functioning as intended:


  • Improved Readiness screen, now shows name of script in title bar and under [Set Readiness] button, or gives a reason why [Set Readiness] is disabled when that is the case:


  • Support for new and revised models such as the face-lifted 2010 T5 van.

  • New, revised and expanded ODX/ASAM data set, supporting Basic Settings function and additional new control modules under UDS.  

Known Issues:

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, the following functions are supported:  Control Module ID (including Advanced ID), Coding, Security Access, Fault Codes, Advanced Measuring Values, Output Tests Adaptation, and now Basic Settings (see above).  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 912 is no longer available for download.  Please use our current Release or Beta instead.
