how to update the firmware in the VCI3 SDP3?
Q3: i read that it is compatible only with Windows 7 32 bit.
A3: It works on 64 bit whitout problems.
Windows 10 is not recommended because some of it’s releases does not support .Net Framework 4.7 that is needed to run SDP. If you are using Windows 10 make sure that .Net Framework 4.7 can be installed before bidding!
Recommended operating system: Windows 7 (the most stable – Scania dealerships use this OS)
Most issues that encounter our clients are caused by incompatibility with other software or previous versions installed on your PC. A clean installation is the best way to get a 100% working system.
