Man, this thing is so awesome. It paid for itself by just turning the DRL's off for me. Saved me $65 in gas + food costs + whatever the dealer would charge me + possible lodging costs after getting lazy from driving a measly 6 hours in 1 day.

Can anyone confirm that it's possible to enter a new set of TPMS codes using this tool?

There are conflicting posts on the AMZN page about whether this will run from 32 bit Windows 7 or not.

I'll be attempting to run it from a notebook with 32 bit Win 7 today or tomorrow and will report my experience back here. If it doesn't work, I'll run it using a virtual machine via Win XP Mode. There are a few programs out there that will allow you to do this, but if you're looking for a free alternative directly from Microsoft, you can just download and run Windows XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC via this link: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...e-in-windows-7 Definitely a bit of a pain, but worth it to me if necessary.

I can confirm that it runs off of windows 7, 32 bit as I just used it last night with no issues. It's 64 bit that has the issues.

Just ordered mine from ebay, exactly the same but with ver 8.10! I'm using windows 7 64bit Ultimate though, so imagine I'm going to have to go through the virtual OS route!!

Oh and to the OP I voted your review

It doesn't work on windows 7 64 bit. I ordered this without reading the reviews. Now I have a diagnostic tool that I won't be able to use.

I know that the Volkswagen/Audi VAG-COM tools record the code of who last modified the ECU settings - does this do the same? Is there any chance of voiding my Certified warranty by using this kind of tool? Can the dealer tell that it has been used? I really don't want to mess anything up.

I bought a used laptop with windows xp and it works. I tried it on a 2014 Tacoma and it doesn't do live data.
