    Where did you get the Vagcom from ?

    You tried looking through the files on the disc for a setup or install icon ?

    Think you need a certain version for win7 I maybe wrong tho

    Got it of eBay, I went on rosstec an downloaded the free lite version cause couldn't figure out which file to download on the disk, so ive got the lite version an when i open it i need to do the test thing, where it says com1 com2 com3 com4, there should be 1 that says USB but it's not there, not sure if I've got the wrong download or not, like I said not sure which file it is on the disk

    Yes it's right you just need to figure out which com port your USB port for your lead is. So it nows which com port (USB port) your lead Is plugged in so it can scan the car.

    Look in the device manager, find the USB com port, and ensure the same one is selected in the vagcom config.

    It just keeps trying to connect to the ecu then defaults back to the controller selection after a warning message say no response from ecu/vehicle iirc

    Try selecting your com port whilst it's plugged in to the vehicle and see what messages flag up one should in theory be different to the rest then you will no you have the USB linked to the correct port.

    You got the link from where you purchased the lead from as they vary between Models depending if it's a CAN vehicle.
