This article will guide you how to install VAG-COM USB cable on Windows and VCDS software. (This article also applies to later versions of VCDS software)
There's several versions of VAG-COM sold online. Unfortunately 99% of them are using low-grade hardware chip with additional of cracked VCDS software (sometimes needed an awkward computer date adjustment). If you own this kind of version, know half of it's functions don't work. For that reason we recommend you get the high-quality VAG-COM 2019 cable with original, unlocked and full version of VCDS software from Ross-Tech™ — by clicking here.
STEP 1: Install Ross-Tech VCDS Software
DO NOT plug VAG-COM cable into computer yet.
Uninstall any other VCDS versions, if present on computer. Then delete c:\Ross-Tech folder.
Install VCDS software. Make sure to tick ON "Install 32-bit". (If option is grayed out, don't worry, continue.)
Leave original installation path of: C:\Ross-Tech\VCDS
