kw1281test is your easiest bet, though you gotta do some extra steps. Download the VCDS com port driver from ross-tech, install that, go to device manager, open properties for your VCDS cable. I think it's under advanced and you'd check load VCP (virtual com port). Apply, okay, unplug the cable, plug it back in, and now you should have a COM port, which you need in VCDS. You'd connect to that COM port at 10400 baud, as the SKC lives in the instrument cluster.You can use VagTacho or the kw1281test software to retrieve the code. VCDS will not be able to get it.
