v*.*.19 connects but no dtc, v*.*.21 does not connect

Hi,

I'm having issue whit our 2015 mk3.5 focus that occasionally stalls when you lightly press on accelerator. My first step was to check if there's any DTC's present. So i dug my old trusty Ford VCM and fired up Forscan. I was greatly surprised when Forscans log stated "Unable to read DTC" (see first pic bellow) from every module. It's been a while since i last used ForScan (last summer) and back then it worked flawlessly.

After this i tried to update ForScan to latest version (beta .21) and i was even more surprised when i tried to connect - i can hear the VCM2 relay clicking for connection, but i get error "Unable to connect to vehicle. Please check ignition is on". (see pick 2 bellow).

Any ideas what could be the problem?

I am having the same connection issue after the update I performed Sunday 4-17-19 to the latest windows version. I am connecting to a vehicle I have connected to many times in the past. Please advise.
