    From today, 18th September 2010, this section is For the discussion of the GENUINE Registered or Shareware versions of VAG-COM Only!

    Whilst we appreciate that legal versions of other diagnostic software are available, due to the high number of illegal versions sold, we WILL NOT allow the discussion of any other diagnostic packages in this section.

    This includes any reference to, but not limited to, VAG-Tacho or CAN Commander -

    You have been warned.. These WILL BE removed, so DO NOT discuss them in any form...

    This is stated in the rules of the site, and this section already, plus it does state this under the heading for this section on the forum home page... but a few decide to take no notice!

    There are also rules specific to this forum that must be followed:

    1) Posting or asking for illegal copies of any software whatsoever, or asking for passwords or cracks is strictly forbidden. If it comes to our attention that you're using a pirated version of any software, your thread will be locked and/or deleted.

    2) Questions about design and construction of home-made interfaces are Off-Topic, as are connection problems if you're using a home-made interface or a 3rd party interfaces. If you can't get your aftermarket interface to work, contact your hardware supplier for assistance.

    3) Advertising of 3rd party Interfaces or competing hardware/software is forbidden.

    4) Keep posts on-topic! If it doesn't have anything to do with computer diagnostics of VW/Audi/Seat/Skoda cars, don't post it.

    5) When posting questions related to a problem you are having with a particular car, always state the exact make/model/year/engine of car you are having a problem with. Also state any modifications you have made to the car. Incomplete information will often get you no answer, or worse yet, the wrong answer.

    6) When posting questions involving trouble codes, please post actual scan data from your car using the latest version of VCDS, preferably a complete Auto-Scan. If you're not using VCDS or VCDS-Lite, you're in the wrong forum.

    7) When posting questions related to VCDS itself, always state the version number (you can find it on the Opening Screen and the About Screen) and details about the PC (make/model/CPU/Operating-System). Make sure you are using a current version of VCDS or VCDS-Lite.

    8) Before asking any question, please take the time to read the VAG-COM Manual and the VAG-COM FAQ. Please use the VW Audi Forum Search to see if your question has already been answered.
