How to setup VXDIAG VCX NANO Tech2Win on Win10 64 bit

Here I’m only speaking for the Tech2win software to use with VXDIAG VCX NANO for GM. Website says that Tech2Win only runs from a Windows XP/7 32-bit computer. But I have laptops running Windows XP, 7, 8, and 10 32 & 64 bit. So i could try on any operating system.

That i did run straight from a Windows 10 64-bit laptop.

Tech2Win Windows 10 64 bit: need luck!

On a Windows 10 64-bit laptop – I’ve seen lots of bad experience on forums.

But the tech2win software runs just fine on my Windows 10 64bit laptop. Would be even cooler with a surface pro or similar tablet.
Went into my device manager, expanded the Human Interface Devices and disabled the touchscreen device. I then could run Tech2Win and the MDI selector popped up like it should. If your device only has a touchscreen you will have to add a keyboard (either wired or Bluetooth) before you disable the touchscreen so you can use Tech2Win.

I’m willing to bet some device that some GM dealerships run the software on are touchscreen (with a compatible Lib) and in windows 10 we have some sort of touchscreen Lib (not compatible) conflict with the application.

Tech2Win Windows 10 with Windows 7 mode: worked!

On tech2win, although the op is stating that its working in 64 bit mode, really want to go through it to double check if it needs to run in win 7 compatible mode for everything to work “correctly” instead.

Putting tech2 win into win 7 compatibility mode is not hard to do.

Go to the start icon for tech2win, right click it and go to properties, and see if you can click the box and make it run it in win 7 mod.

If the box is grayed out and you can not do it this way, click on the Windows icon, type in run in the search box, then find run program made for a previous version of windows in list it will bring out and click on that to open that program. From here, it pretty straight forward to find Tech2 win, and change tech2 win so it running in win 7 compatible mode.

Another good tip: Tech2Win Windows 7 32/64 bit – also worked
On a 32bit machine running win 7, tech2 seems to be working since I just did a quick check on the car with it, But still trying to skin the cat to get the VXDIAG VCX Nano to work on my 64bit machine.

Here is the tutorial for reference.

Ps. The method also can be used for 64bit Windows 7.

Ford IDS 109 FAQs:

It VCM 1 is compatible?
Yes, it can work with Ford VCM 1 clone

Works good with VCM2 clone?
I have Chinese clone VCM2 SP177-C1 and it works great with impressive speed. I would definitely recommend this guy.

Hi how about Online ? It will be work with cloned VCMII ?
can do online , work with original and clone VCMs

So just to confirm the testman.exe and other DLLs in the Runtime folder are all v109? I’ve found that many other hacked versions are build using v106 and not all features work with 2017+ vehicles. 
i know , some softwares can not work with 2017 cars , i know what to do for supporting 2017 cars .
i will change some files for it .

What is the price??? and where to?
$79.99 with free shipping, installation & activation service

Someone please test 2017 f150 key programming north america model
For F150 2017 need minimum IDS and NASTF account !!!

I have a vmware version of IDS 108.07, that appears to be built on 106 based on the file versions of a lot of the DLLs in the Runtime folder. Using a genuine VCM II with the firmware, I canNOT do TCM module programming on a 2017. 
Never tried TCM on 2017+ but that’s a possibility.
All hack I’ve seen are based on v86, v101 or v106.
Never seen a hack based on v109 executables and DLLs .. that’s why I’m asking but he won’t answer that question.

What vcm2 firmware are you using ??
My point is.. all “good” clone can upgrade firmware to no problem.
On newer vehicle’s BCM replacement, the procedure requires to get configuration restored ( looks like JLR process ). After you done PMI of the said BCM you must complete that configuration restore or the BCM installation won’t be completed and so DTC will show up and/or the bcm won’t work correctly. I’m not talking about PATS functions which do need a dealer login or other tools to complete.
Once again my point is you do require firmware for this procedure on most newer cars like 2015 + focus or escape and probably other model too. Running this procedure with or older firmware will show error in the process.
Now that being said, if your software allow the use of firmware, and has the v109 testman.exe and other executable files, then it should be working. But if you are using v86 testman.exe and other executable files and DLL with odler firmware, I strongly recommend not trying to install BCMs on newer car. And so other functionality might not work too.

Here is a bcm replacement failed with firmware and IDS 107. Same I’d happening with v108 and v109. You do require newer firmware.

1: ODIS 4.3.3 works with VAS heads/passthru interfaces?
ODIS 4.3.3 work good with both VAS heads and passthru interfaces?
This version has same level of d-pdu api as odis-e 8.1.3All proper vas heads with amb2300 genuine will work as a charm, same as all passthru interfaces supported.

ODIS 4.3.3 works fine with VAS5054a?
Bad clones of VAS5054a not gonna work with this version.
Even those that works with 4.2.3.
For bad clones just need to downgrade PDU from 042 to 041

Are there clones that work on 4.3.3?
Yes, clones work on 4.3.3 with PDU 041. But not working with PDU 042

Can i ODIS 4.3.3 with Clone head VAS5054a? Works 100%?
ODIS 4.3.3 , ODIS 8.1.3 work perfectly with clone and original VAS 5054 with 1.20.41.
I’m using 1.20.42 version with clone. It is enough to replace the folder 5054 from 1.20.41 in 小/ProgramFiles(x86)/Softing/D-PDU API/1.20.042/VeCom.
ODIS E 8.1.3 isn’t full. I copy projects from service and VRT-VPT files from old ODIS(automatic recognition of the project)

2: How to install ODIS 4.3.3 software for VAS5054A/VAS6154?

Can you post a how do to for removing EDIC_D_PDU_API_1.20.42?
Remove EDIC 1.20.42 from PC
Then install this older EDIC attached:
the installation of this odis is done and after finishing you must install the EDIC_D_PDU_API_1.20.41, so that it recognizes the device? if so, could someone explain how to perform that step of uninstallation and installation, of EDIC DPU ? is there any risk of damaging my clone device? 
If you should check post install (before you plug in your device) in Add/Remove programs you should see Softing D-PDU API V1.20.042 EDIC_D_PDU_API_OE/OS
Remove these from PC and reboot (just in case)
Install the EDIC provided above with version 041
Then plug in your device and test
I myself have not tested the above I’m still using the 4.2.3 in a VM with clone VAS 5054A. This soft needs an generated key depending on the PC.
The 4.3.3 I also installed in a VM, downgraded the EDIC_D_PDU_API_1.20.41 for the clone VAS5054A. I’m preparing for a mechanic friend and will try it out soon at some cars.
If this 4.3.3 runs without key, why the former 4.2.3 was with a hardware key? Or is there any other resctrictions for using?
ODIS v4.2.3 was protected with Enigma software so that it needed activation key to load program (IMMO)
ODIS v4.3.3 was provided by Mr totalfree with no such restrictions
The reason for the restrictions is to stop sellers who come to forums, download and sell dollars sadly they will download this and sell for profit this free material. It is forum life sadly..

I’m from Spain and maybe my translator does not translate very well, but I do not understand why there are 3 license files.
What do I have to choose to install?
Can I have VW, AUDI, Seat .. in the same program?
For now you choose NVASC
N – VW Commercial
V – VW
A – Audi
S – Seat
C – Skoda
E – Bentley, but no PostSetup existing yet.

When Odis 4.3.3 install and run it ok Upadte looking for me. ort pick and then try and get this picture as that data are not current. dal has a solution for this problem ?? 
With DB version 51.0.40 you must use licence NVASC (No Bentley)
With DB version 51.0.20 you can use ANY licence file
DB version 51.0.20 comes direct from ErWin link in post number 1

3: How to setup/install Odis 4.3.3 Postseup?

What differences between postsetup 51.0.20 and 51.0.40?
On Erwin it s 510.20
51.0.30 have newer database for bentley and 51.0.40 have newer database for audi……
Erwin almost never provide the newer and latest databases except only if exist any critical……..

I have a problem with odis post setup . i attached a screenshot
Run program again with administration powers
Then run again as administrator

In this week was released 51.0.60 whitch has newer database for VW
How To update when an other postsetup is already installed ?
DB = 51.0.70 is current value…
BUT the issue is not how to update, as that is simple.
Problem is you will need to add all NEW files to the existing database to allow update. For this material needs uploading, and also you need access to all Brands too, otherwise update will fail due to missing files.

I don t understand why so many differents versions of postsetup.
Today I have downloaded postsetup from Erwin vag (Belgium account) and when I install odis with licence full postsetup is 51.0.20
Postsetup version is different depending on the country?
Erwin she is not any ‘developer’ or ‘factory’ and of course none any VAG company
She is just let’s we say ‘corporate’ company for support indypendent workshops
So the postsetup that she provide to the indypendent workshops is the main postsetup when new Odis version going out from VAG
All the Odis postsetup updates are available only to the official VAG workshops and dealers via their Btac network server
When exist any very critical update, then Erwin she provide the new and full postsetup with these updates as she made few months ago with the Odis 4.1.3
I hope now clear the things for you

i’m trying to download postsetup using megadownloader software to avoid message “bandwidth limit exceeded”, but after download 5,37gb i’ve that message anyway….how it’s possible? what can i do to download postsetup?
  1. Reboot your router (to possibly change internet address)
    2. Wait
    3. Pay for Mega account

4: How to get ODIS 4.3.3 to work with VXDIAG VCX NANO 5054?

Do I have to choose “VAS6154” or “PassThrough” at the beginning of installation when I intend to use the VCX device?
At the beginning of the installation you have to select VAS5054 as always, then follow this instruction:
Remember, you will not able to make everythings on the vehicle as with vas 5054 because the interface.

Please notice that if you install this version of Odis on Windows 10 no choice for 5054 in the selection exists anymore.
And the vcx driver doesn’t get it working on Windows 10, too because it seems to emulate the 5054 type and not the 6154…
Running Windows 7 seems to be the best option at this point.

Can you give me (us) a few more details about how you installed it?
I mean what options were chosen, standard or compatibility mode, etc – and of course which menu you mean to change the Interface
There is nothing special with the install method, It is same as on win7. The difference is that you need to replace 1 file before running the setup, and 2 files after install. The main thing that I tricked is how determine the running os version. Mainly if the running os is win10, act as if it would win7.

5: How to use ODIS 4.3.3 with US cars?

Will this work with US market cars?
The PostSetup has US files in the database… As listed in the languages supported in post number one.
Are the languages all tested, no!
So fell free to provide feedback on real US car.
Update: I tested today US version 2015 Passat and everything is working fine.

ODIS 4.2.3 – Tested 100%! And you can use it with relief!


VXDIAG VCX NANO GM review on Saab 9-5

I have VXDIAG VCX Nano GM wifi scanner about week. I`m using 9.250 bin.
My Tech2WIN is working with Win 7 64 bit.
I can do in my 9-5 2006:
- turn ON SID2 (trip computer, alarm, speed warning etc): function: again SID programming in 6 steps. This was the main reason why I bought VCX!
- after that I locked my radio. Two days later I found out that I need to put VIN in SID. Radio started to work again during this VIN installation. I was sooo happy after radio turned on
- read all DTC and delete them
- configure/activate/change options in DICE, AC, SID,ECU...
- read all parameters, signals, read Trionic, start adaptations in AT, check fans etc..

I can not:
- read ABS (need to check again!)
- marry radio
- proper finish SID programming with "OK" message. I need to turn off Tech2WIN after interface stop flashing with blue led.

- didn`t try SPS (don`t have GlobalTIS yet), I`m afraid of hard lock (immo-keys, etc)

Someone from Poland don't have any problem with his 9-5 2002.
This is his video...
He can do anything. Including integration with SPS, Globaltis and WIS!
