Today we want to talk about laptops when you’re getting into j254 flash programming. Do not purchase a laptop that has windows 11.
so a few days ago our customers try to flash program with the ford fjds software and vxdiag vcx nano Ford J2534 passthru.
and as you can see here the progress bar is trying to communicate
the software’s trying to communicate with the vci here but it’s not it kept on looping
They tried it on several different vehicles but all had the same result it kept on looping
If we go to ford’s website, they have their operating system requirements.
It says windows 10 professional.
It takes 3 years on average for the flash programming software from the manufacturers to work with the brand new operating systems.
You’re gonna get a lot of errors like this if you purchase a laptop that has this windows 11 operating system.
so we repeat do not upgrade your existing windows 10 to windows 11 and do not purchase a laptop that has the windows 11 operating system.
Most of them probably have windows home version. VXDIAG software does not accept Home version Windows.
