      does anyone have vag commander 1.4

      I bought one and none of the channels will communicate

      when i start up the program it says DOG INIT failed
      DOG INITIATION FAILED

      the com port works and the lights blink when I try to open a channel

      But the channel will not connect? I wonder why
      I have tryed all version 1.4 2.1 3.0 4.5 and 5.1

      I tryed 2 different pcs and still nothing. The lights are blinking on the vagcom but it does not open the channel ever!

      Have you tried posting on the Vag com forum? Trying starting a thread in there I'll bet there is a bit more traffic in that area of this site.

      No reason to send him there, Its not a Ross Tech product.
      They make it pretty clear that the forum is strictly for VAG-COM products only.
      Clearly this is a case of a failed third party cable.

      Contact the manufacture, most likely you'll need to send it back as its firmware is damaged.

      Happens quite frequently when someone updates.

      I make a copy of my firmware and keep it as a backup. I won't get into details about it. As my cable is not a Vag-commander.

      Best of luck.

      Having the same issue, wondering if you ever found out how to get it to work.

      Thanks
