Current Beta

Important Notes: 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 21.7.1 includes the following improvements:

  • Preliminary support for MY 2022 cars.   

  • Completely revised and revamped ASAM/ODX Data (DS 329)
    ... and changes to the VCDS software needed to accommodate it.

  • Many small, behind-the-scenes fixes and enhancements.   

  • Support for the use of Off-Line SFD tokens.
    ... Tokens must still be obtained from VAG's servers, requiring access via their portal for the local market and appropriate credentials, but these tokens can now be used directly in VCDS:

Release Notes:

  • Beta 21.7 works only with Ross-Tech's current HEX-NET and HEX-V2 interfaces.
    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 v0.4548 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 21.3.

  • Works on Windows 7 and newer, including Windows 10.
    Either 32 or 64 bit 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."

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