Hi , guessing this has been discussed a few times, I have an Astra j 2.0 cdti which has had running and idling issues, finally got a fault code P0193, which has been coming on intermittently and not leaving a code , so I purchased an op com reader with the cd disc, disc was damaged when it arrived so no good at all , I’ve tried downloading the software but get the install usb drivers error , disabled the usb driver on windows 10 but still can’t get it to run, any help or a link wound be so much appreciated as it’s driving me mad .

There's a fair chance the correct drivers will need manually installing,
i wrote a guide which is posted on the opcom section of Vxon,
check your driver version and come back as it's important the right versions are used

Hi, can you point me in the direction of a decent download ? And what version I should be using ? The wife’s Astra has again failed to start , new battery full service new fuel rail sensor , was going like a dream , but occasionally just won’t even turn over , lights come on but won’t turn over , leave it for a short while and it starts , I’ve re synced the key in case it was the immobiliser causing a problem , so at a loss , hoping the op com would help identify any issue etc

Are you looking for a recomendation for an opcom unit complete with software rather than looking to update your existing set up with later software ?

I purchased an op com scanner from flea bay, came with a cd but it was broken so looked online for a download but couldn’t get anything to run , tried the windows disable for drivers etc etc but no good , got a download link from the seller but wouldn’t download, so hoping for info re a download and the correct version and drivers needed , haven’t got to use it yet so a bit frustrating

The chances are that running a different software will result in bricking the unit once the firmware auto updates as the unit will most likely be running a copy chip set,if you have already tried different versions the unit may already been bricked.
I would recommend only running exactly the same software version as the one supplied,do you know which version was supplied ?

That is a really old (2008) version and would be no use on your car even if it did work,
post a link to the opcom you bought and i'll see if i can get any more info

Hi again , I contacted the seller who sent out another scanner and software , but again the cd was broken , so unusable, so I have two scanners , one completely unused and one with software there’s been tried to install on it , so guessing the unused one is good, it’s v1.99 if that makes any sense , so any direction to a download would be great if poss oh and got a full refund too

Contact the seller and ask them which software version(s) it's safe to run on the unit,that v 1.99 firmware is a Chinese fake so the chipset will also be a copy,there's no point in loading a software version that'll brick the unit once it trys to auto update the firmware
