just downloaded vagCOM 805 complete bundle with USB drivers to compliment the usb cable i have bought, its a copy but as i understand a good copy, how true that is i dont know. However, laptop is XP64, which i did check before buying vagcom i believe vagcom supports XP64, and certainly has the drivers. I have tried to download the diagnostics assuming its USB therefore HEX/KEY type? The cable bought is a VW/AUDI CAN BUS USB CABLE 607.3. But the installation file is a bundle so assume its all inclusive. However when i plug in the cable it recognizes the USB device but just will not recognize the drivers at all, i also tried this on an XP pro machine with the same results. Very odd... any advise on what might be the issue? Meantime i have virtual machine on here as well so i can roll back to 2000 if i have too. I have access to a 2000 machine as well which i will try on monday just to see if the cable is recognised. spec wise all machines are more than capable as the are all workstations (laptop included) tried disabling the virus scanner (AVG) no joy either. suggestions on a postcard. fustrating as the more i read on vagcom the more interested i get!
