Do I need an activation code for use as a standard license?

Post by Oldfart01 » Mon Jun 29, 2020 6:04 pm

Hi, I'm a new, old guy trying to get the FORScan to work on my new Raptor. I have a new OBDLinkEX and I am having issues getting started with it. Do I need an activation code to use it as a standard license? I keep getting a code saying that the USB device I connected has malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it. I downloaded the forscan app fine, and the obdwiz app download was fine. I have the red light on the unit now, so I tried to download the drivers as the directions tell you. The driver download ends up being a list of files that will not do anything, will not load, it's just a list of files. Is this because I need an activation code, or am I doing something else dumb? I'm not exactly an IT wizard. Thanks for any help.

You do not need any extra codes to use Forscan with a standard license. The extended license requires a code.

Your problem is with the OBDLink EX and or your computer.

Ok, thanks, I appreciate the answer. It's looking like the adapter doesn't want to work with my Dell XPS for some reason.
