I confirm that the Ford VCMII works perfectly with Suzuki DST2 software. Tested work with Ford VCM II 100% .
This is how I made it work with the Suzuki sdt2 software.
I used the best Ford VCMII clone from china….yep..it’s SP177-C1.
I used a dell latitude d630 with clean install windows 7 32 bit professional.
I installed the Ford V.86.
I opened the Bosch VCI manager and updated the VCM II to work with Ford v86.
I installed Suzuki sdt2 software, and when the install asked me to connect the VCMII i connected the Ford VCM II and continued with the install.
Once it finished I opened the BOSCH folder, then VTX-VCI sub folder, and copied the entire contents of the VCI Software (Ford-VCM-II) to VCI Software (6516-Suzuki). Replace all files !!!
the Suzuki software will see the VCMII as the OEM VCM even that the VCI manager say its a Ford VCMII.
The regedit will look into the folder VCI Software (6516-Suzuki) for all the drivers, and it will load the Ford drivers to make it work.
Remember to open VCI manager and connect the VCM before you go into the Suzuki or Ford software.
I connected a 2015 car non USA model and worked perfectly.
I also connected other USA model cars and worked OK.
I tried on Suzuki swift 2001 g10a, Suzuki wagon R 1.3 2007′,and Suzuki swift diesel 1.3 2011,ALL WORKED FINE!
I mean it’s not able to do programming VIN or ecu programming if data base is NOT had it….but diagnose is ok……..
I hope this helps !!
Btw, you can change Ford VCM2 Device type to SDT2 VCI , Then you have a SDT2 VCI.
So if dongle not work while it is a Ford vcm2, maybe it would work after you changed the VCM2 Device type to SDT2 VCI.
Note: VCM2 clone can work with a lot of software. Look here: http://blog.obdexpress.co.uk/2018/04/25/ford-vcm-ii-a-lot-of-software-can-work-with/
