You might try downloading and running the Firefox browser. I much prefer to use Chrome, but Firefox does a much better job as a mediator between old XP and the modern internet. On my Verdict anyway.

I think so. I used Macrium Reflect like has already been mentioned here.

I may have been thinking of my Verdict where I had to buy a special adapter so I could hook the drive to a regular PC. THAT...

Snap On is installing "Win 10 Enterprise". I don't know why, I like to use the "Pro" myself usually. I have not upgraded ours to Win 10 yet though I have upgraded the hard drive and memory on my...

Good ideas for sure. I have two scanners that I've upgraded to SSD drives and kept the original drives as-is just in case.
I tend not to install much extra stuff on them to backup but I get the...

I've done a bunch of upgrading various other things to Win 10. I had an older dual core laptop that was creaking along slowly with Vista but decided to take a shot. It actually ran a lot better with...

$200? Really. Eesh. I've been updating my own computers since like DOS 3.0. Probably save that 200 and do it myself. I hear some people already have.

I somehow managed to remember to watch. Apparently if you have one of the latest scanners then all you need to do is buy a year's worth of FCA subscription for $50 to be able to fully scan and...

I've been bitten by that too. I came to about the same conclusion as Joe Rappa, though I'm sure he states it better. Since it's now something I know to watch out for it's not so big a deal.

I wonder if your dealer knows the Verus Edge and Zeus are essentially the exact same things? Just slightly different cases and a software tweak or two. I know I'm not the only person aware of this.

They really won't sell you one? That sucks. I have tried it and proven that my Verus Edge will work fine with a Zeus dongle. But for the money, the gigantic soap-on-a-rope is paid for and works OK....

The only reason I complain here about Snap On's tools is that I like them. If I didn't, I'd trade them in on another brand and then go complain wherever appropriate for THAT brand. :)

But anyway,...

I'm afraid you'll just have to source a VCI. The Verdict isn't designed to read OBD any other way but its correct and proprietary hardware.
