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.
Beta 22.6.0 included the following improvements:
Model-Year 2023 support
Many behind-the-scenes changes
... internal improvements, but nothing worthy of a screen-shot.
All new ROD date
... version 2.281
New VCDSSCan Toolbox
... version 22.7.0
Beta 22.6.1 included the following improvements:
Improved UDS Output Tests on modules with less common parameters
... such as the Mk7 ABS.
Beta 22.6.2 includes the following improvements:
Increased values accepted by Security Access
... on UDS control modules, some of which now require longer values.
A fix for Sequential Output Test STOP function
... which sometimes didn't work on while simultaneously using Advanced Measuring Values on UDS control modules.
It will not work with any of our older, legacy interfaces.
Support for legacy interfaces will be included again in the next Release version.
HEX-NET and HEX-V2 interfaces must be set to the Beta channel using VCIConfig.
CB v0.4622 or higher is required to use this version of VCDS.
Beta channel for your interface can be selected on the Advanced tab in VCIConfig.
Updating your interface will not affect compatibility with previous versions of VCDS.
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 22.3
Works on Windows 7 and newer, including Windows 11.
32-bit or 64-bit and ARM-64 versions of Windows are fully supported.
It might still work on XP as well, but we no longer consider any version of Windows older than 7 to be "supported."
