Review from Martin Atkinson: I love my xhorse tools

Review from Martin Atkinson:

I have VVDI-Prog, VVDI MB and VVDI2.

VVDI-Prog is an amazing tool to compliment the VVDI MB and VVDI2

if it won’t read with the adapters I just solder on only had one so far that wouldn’t actually read once I had cleaned it up. But tbf I’ve only used xhorse tools for Mb so far

Tips from an experienced user: Vw polos / Ibizas and similar systems have problems on key learning menu cause ecus it locks itself and doesn’t allow you to do the process even if vvdi2 said successful ….as long as you read cluster on those k line there is another way to add key directly and faster than do key learning .


In sum I love my xhorse tools. If you know what your doing and know the systems they are brilliant. I just need to get more acquainted with the BMW systems

(Solved) VVDI2 unable to work on any laptop

About: all laptops cannot find the vvdi2. how to get it to work?


Complaint from a VVDI2 owner:


I’ve had a vvdi2 for over two months now, unable to get it to work, I have four different laptops, all do different things, cannot find device, or as soon as I go to load it up it doesn’t work, I’ve tried reloading software over and over, shutting down firewall, am I not updating properly, does anyone else have these problem, kinda getting disappointed with this machine, any help would be appreciated .


VVDI2 tech support:


Disable driver signature requirement on computer, keep pressing F8 on startup

Also make sure you install the correct drivers, if one doesn’t work try the other. Should be in the same folder where you extracted the software


Important: Operators fail for sure …don’t blame the tool….unistall any windows defender, antivirus, non compatible software etc….best thing its getting just one laptop for xhorse and problem solved


Just a simple laptop …with nothing at all …i personally use windows xp and windows 7 ….but it will work in any system
