This is an HTML simulation built from actual screen-shots of the latest version of VAG-COM Diagnostic System (VCDS). 
You can click the buttons as if you were using the software.    The screen-shots were done using Microsoft
Windows 7 with the "Aero" style.  If you are not using W7 Aero, expect the screens to look different but the functions will be the same.  

This screen appears when you start VCDS by clicking the shortcut on your Desktop or by selecting VCDS from the Start Menu.

On this screen, you have 8 buttons that you can click with your mouse:

[Select]

[Auto-Scan]

[SRI Reset]

[OBD-II]

[Applications]

[Options]

[About]

[Exit] (This closes the VCDS program)

In the actual VCDS program, all buttons except Options and About will be grayed-out until you have Tested and Saved your port settings on the Options screen.

Click on the buttons in the screen shots to "navigate" through this manual.

You can also use the "Manual Index" below (scroll down).
