Licensing Vehicles

LICENSING VEHICLES

The VCM Suite is licensed based on the vehicles you are actually tuning (or plan to tune in the future). A license is tied to a vehicle's VIN, as well as the serial number and operating system version of its VCM.

A separate license will be required for each HP Tuners interface device you use to flash vehicles. Vehicles that are not licensed on a particular interface device cannot be flashed by that device


A Vehicle License allows you to tune the individual vehicle which has been licensed.

NOTE: For some vehicles, you will be offered the option to license the ECM and TCM separately, rather than licensing the whole vehicle.

Licenses for additional vehicles can be purchased at any time. 

PURCHASING A LICENSE

If you do not yet have a license that covers the vehicle you are working on, the software will prompt you to purchase a license when you attempt to flash those changes to the vehicle. See License Activation Rules for more detail on licensing requirements.

The prompt the software displays looks like this:


NOTE: Prices for licenses are listed in credits. Credits are the currency HP Tuners uses for license transactions. See Credits for more information.

Choose the desired option and click the Ok button. The appropriate amount of credits will be deducted from the credits on your MPVI2/2+.

HOW MANY CREDITS DO I NEED?

The number of credits required to license a particular vehicle depends on the vehicle. Some vehicles require more credits than others. Most single vehicle licenses require between 2 and 6 credits.

CAN I DELETE LICENSES OR SWAP THEM FOR ANOTHER VEHICLE?

No. Once licenses are chosen and committed, they are permanently stored and cannot be erased or swapped.
