THESE ARE WINDOWS 10 & 11 INSTRUCTIONS!
Laptop running late model windows 10 or any windows 11 update your windows 10 fully.
DO NOT TURN OFF DEFENDER! DO NOT TURN OFF ANY PROTECTION.
Download GDS2 from the vxdiagshop. navagate to the VCX Nano GM USB product page. About half way down you will see links for GDS2 and VX Manager 1.8.4
Do not use the thumb drive that may have come with the Nano. Download these files from the vxdiagshop only!
Download the GDS2 from the Yandex drive select “download all” only and the download should begin.
Download the 1.8.4 VX Manager from the mega drive.
These are the only 2 we are installing because they are important to work on the Volt tech2win is usless for the Volt and your on your own installing that. I can not help you with that.
Once downloaded verify they are in your download directory.
If not then defender caught the missing file and you must get defender to allow the download.
Extract GDS2 windows will detect the GDS2.exe file click on the notification flag if your fast! If not then click on settings security windows security virus protection. “Protection History” click on the threat click on “actions” click on “allow” or “restore” whichever is available.
Anytime during the install if you download, extract or install anything expect the flag and click on it right away or go to settings security windows security virus protection then “protection history” make sure you click on the threat and choose action and allow or restore.
What this will do is with defender on it will automatically make exceptions in the windows system to allow these files to perform their proper functions without further problems.
Run the Autoinstall in the extracted GDS2 directory.
During the installation windows will again flag the GDS2. Exe so you know what to do as stated above and anytime this happens follow the “Protection History ” as you go and clean up as you go.
Once GDS2 is installed you should see the big blue GM square logo.
If it is not there do not worry go to the GDS2 extracted directory and then the install directory and copy the GDS2. Exe file and place it on your root directory C: on your hard drive.
Make sure there is no protection history and you should now see the GM logo on your desktop!
You are finished installing GDS2 DO NOT OPEN GDS2 YET! Just leave it alone there until after you are finished with VX Manager.
Now run the install program for VX Manager 1.8.5 it should run without issue but if defender complaints you now know very well what to do. Thats right Protection History.
Now prepare to hook the Nano to your laptop for the first time!
When the last screen shows that has the 2 check boxes uncheck visit website DO NOT CLICK FINISH!
NOW PLUG IN THE NANO FOR THE FIRST TIME!
You may now click finish and yes on the following screen.
It does not matter if you can detect the nano in VX Manager at this time. Go to the last tab on the top right and click on the VXDiag tab scroll down slightly abd hit the blue VX Manager button. This will give uou the chance to download the latest vx manager 1.8.9 save this is the choice here.
UNPLUG THE VCX NANO HERE!!!!!!!!
Again anytime you download extract or install you know what to do yes protection history.
Now extract the new vx manager.
Install the VX Manager
Now in install this time you will get a message about installing do the install anyway. Or run away option.
YES INSTALL VX MANAGER 1.8.9 RIGHT OVER 1.8.4
