Windows-based Diagnostic Software
for VW / Audi / Seat / Skoda
for generic 3rd-party interfaces
VCDS-Lite is our low cost solution for older VW-Audi Group cars. It works great with just about all the older models that didn't require a direct CAN connection for diagnostics. The free shareware version does quite a lot and it's, well, free. The fully registered version is does pretty much everything the older dealers' tools could on those cars, but even when fully registered, it will not have quite all of the functions that the full (non-lite) version of VCDS would provide.
Some of thedifferences between versions and between the free VCDS-Lite Shareware and the Fully Registered version:
Free Shareware:Cannot do AutoScanLimitations of VCDS-Lite compared to VCDS even if Fully Registered:
Won't display text for all fault codes
No Basic Settings (so no TBA, Xenon levelling, etc or checking timing on TDI's)
No Adaptation Saving (so no changing of locking/lights/horn behavior)
No Output Tests
No tech support from Ross-Tech
No Generic OBD-II
Won't work with CAN-Bus vehicles
Fewer fault code definitions and label files
No built-in Activation (you'll be limited to a single PC)
No Advanced Measuring Blocks
No Acceleration Measurement

For $50 not a bad purchase, I just needed to find a different driver for windows 10. The link provided didn't work. After that it was pretty easy. I like how you can see the temp for the transmission as well.
