However, before you start installing the Autocom CDP Pro Cars software, there are three things you should take note of: First, the software can only run on a XP system, and any other system will surely destroy it. Secondly, do not forget to close the anti-virus, otherwise the anti-virus software will probably recognize the software as a virus i.e. a false alarm. The anti-virus will cancel your programmer and eventually prevent your operation. Another important thing to take note of is the fact that most of the Autocom-CDP-Diagnostic tools do not support firmware upgrade. Other versions, however, require a VCI connection if you want to upgrade. Article Source: : http://www.obd2cart.com/blog/useful-details-about-an-autocom-cdp-pro-for-cars/ .
