the vcx manager must be running in the background for this to work (pretty sure anyway) unless something has changed
What I found while testing was the VCX needed to be connected - SPS2 detected the device on my laptop and connected to the truck. I was only using the techline connect-VX manager was not running during the session, FWIW!

So the Tech2 win can do all the Tech2 stuff like enabling afterblow and calibrating the ride height sensors?
supposedly there is a couple things it cannot do versus a actual tech2 but I do not know the details, although I did not or have not tried those 2 particular things I could not find anything that did not work.

If anyone thinks of something that needs tested, please ask. I am going to do some BCM upgrades this evening and additional poking (research) around to familiarize myself.

I had major success while using SPS2 and Techline Connect to program my driver door module. Here is what I learned.

Guide I followed: http://blog.vxdiagshop.com/2022/03/...ano-gm-with-techline-connect-vmware-solution/

My particular scenario: Use a VM on my work laptop because my home desktop is everything that is not approved: Fedora 36, Ryzen 7 5000 series, and not portable. The work laptop has a strict security policy, but VMs are approved and there is no security policy for them.

What didn't work: 1) VirtualBox. All sorts of weird errors such as unable to authenticate TDS. I spent 3 hours on this before giving up and moving to VMWare Player. 2) Windows Host: could not download a Windows ISO while already using Windows and can't execute the media creation tool due to the work laptop security policy mentioned above.

What did work: 1) USB passthrough to guest OSes on either VM. Easier to set up in VMWare though. May be useful in the future because I have weird graphics issues with VMWare. (white distorted blocks) 2) VX Manager 1.8.9. I think it is the newest version. 3) Launching from Edge browser. 4) Not installing software in any particular order. 5) Only needing VX Manager and Techline Connect.

Actual process took maybe an hour from start-to-finish, including the Windows 10 Pro install.
The driver door module was programmed in under 5 minutes and resolved all of my weird issues I mentioned in my introduction thread.

Wow, I read that twice and am having a bit of a hard time replicating your success. If you can make the time, I’d love to learn more.

To use Tech2win for diagnostic using the vcx nano, do i need to purchase a tech2win subscription from acdelco website or just the sps2 $45 vin credit?
