Authentication without Flashing

Last updated: 2019-07-25

If you want to authenticate without flashing, you have to proceed as follows:

  • install vFlash 4 SP3 
  • open an existing vFlash project or create a new vFlash project that supports authentication:

  • deactivate/erase all data blocks:

  • add a CustomAction DLL, containing following code:

    using Vector.vFlash.CustomActions;
    using Vector.Diagnostics;
    using Vector.vFlash.Extensions.Diagnostics;


public void Execute(IStatusSink statusSink, ICustomActionConfig customActionConfig)


Ecu ecu = Application.GetEcu();



  • The ExecuteAuthentification() method is not yet available, therefore you have to reference the DLL Vector.vFlash.Extensions.dll from the vFlash installation file (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Vector vFlash 4\Bin) in the custom action project. 

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Vector vFlash 4\Bin\Vector.vFlash.Extensions.dll


With this new vFlash 4 SP3 feature Custom Actions can be executed without any reprogramming by deactivating all data blocks:
