Ditto but funnily enough I uninstalled it all last night.

My GS has the C1336 Zero Point Calibration etc glitch which means that whichever OBD reader I connect and for whatever reason, I get the the C1336 code and associated warning lights. Not sure if it's my copy of Techstream, the laptop or the cable but the calibration invariably fails. No point me having the software if I can't clear this code.

This is the one that I use and it works well on a Windows 10 64-bit laptop.

This seems to be the one that I have, at least i Think it is? have you had success ever at regenerating a DPF, in particular is lexus 220d ones?

I've never had a diesel car Frederick so no, I've never needed to do it.

Herbie, can you post or message me a link to some working Win10 64 drivers please, dude?  I've got the same or a very similar Techstream cable but my PC nor laptop will recognise it and I've messed with a fair few drivers trying to get it to show up in the software!

I would be very happy to do that for you Matt but I'm afraid that my laptop is currently 90 miles north of me, on loan to my sister in law for a few weeks.

If she can get them to me then I'll forward them to you - but don't hold your breath as she's not very tech-savvy :wacko:
