The AutoEnginuity Security Dongle (pictured here) may be required to install/run the version 10 or newer software with your ProLine connector ONLY. The VCI connector does not require the Security Dongle. Starting with software version 16.1 (released 3/22/2018), the ProLine Connector (with or without the external Security Dongle) will no longer be supported. The connector had limitations due to changes in the automotive industry, and the capabilities of that hardware are not able to support the new protocols and changes in new vehicles. The newest STABLE version of our software that supports the ProLine connector is 15.21.
Any customer who decides to update their software subscription, must own a ProLine VCI Connector. If a VCI Connector is not owned, an AC12 Hardware Upgrade must take place.
