Hi Augster, I'm interested on the VCDS cable, please excuse my lack of knowledge, will this work on Mac computers and is it the last version or upgradeable, also, i'm assuming the license is transferable?

Thank you very much.
John

P.S I have less than 15 posts here so I couldn't PM.

Hi John,

There is no software license. All of the software is free to download at Ross-Tech.com. The catch is it only works if you have their cable. Folks have tried those fake cables from China but it will not work with their software. I just checked their website and only saw it avlb for Window PCs, but should work on anything that has windows. I've used my tablet since it was running Windows and had a USB.

Let me know if you are still interested.

Thanks!
- Augie

Hi Augie, forgive me for the delayed reply, unfortunately I will have to pass, reason being I don't own a Windows device.
Best of luck on the sale.

I'm sure you can use this on a Mac with a windows emulator. I believe @fred44nl uses VCDS on his Mac and has done for years.

I've also used mine with some of the really cheap Windows tablets, like the 8" ones that were going for $50 a few weeks ago. Just needed a USB-OTG cable. Cheap enough to dedicate one to the job!
