-I cant get the VAG-COM program from the CD to work at all, it wont install properly, maybe because my computer is 64 bit.
-I was able to install VCDS-Lite but it isnt recognizing the cable. When I hit test for COM1 it says "Port status OK, Interface not found." Maybe I need to plug it into the car for it to see the interface?
-After the ECU flash install I got an error that said "You have to run the 64 bit version of DPinst.exe on this machine."
-I was able to install the FTDI drivers manually so hopefully this error wont matter.
-EcuFlash is seeing my cable (COM1).
It's dark out right now so tommorrow when I have some daylight I'll try to read from ECU. If it works I'll go forth with trying to delete some CEL codes caused by the stupid secondary air injection system. If it doesnt work I'll try a 32 bit Win7 VM.
You don't need to run that program that comes with the cable. You need ecuFlash and/or RomRaider
