I got the right driver and was successful with a clone in windows 7. Since the app quit working on my iphone I don't come here much anymoreHello all, just registered here so I could post in this thread. Bought a Premium cluster for mine over 6 weeks ago and have spent most of the time since trying to find someone to program it for me. After a couple dealers acting like they didn't want to do it or not being able to access my ECM (no idea why), I decided to buy a VCM clone off EBay and do it myself. Of course as my luck goes, I cannot get my laptop to recognize the clone. I get the 'installing device driver' notification when I plug it up but it always fails a minute or two later. The green light on the VCM signalling that it is hooked to a PC comes on for a couple secs then goes back off (the power on comes on and stays on). The VCM does beep when first plugged in.
I have downloaded this software :https://www.boschdiagnostics.com/pro/software-ford-vcm-ii as well as V86 inside a VM on my Win7 laptop. Even if I open the Bosch software it won't detect the VCM. Am I missing a driver somewhere or have gotten the luck of the draw with a bad clone?
I am close to being done with this and just selling the cluster but I'm trying to have more patience.
FWIW I did try plugging the VCM into my gaming PC and never got the driver error and the light (PC connection) flashed every few seconds. I then tried installing the Bosch software to that PC and it still said no VCM connected.
