VPC Software trouble shooting Tips

1. Use the newest version of the software/firmware, older versions DO NOT support hardware released after it was written
eg CM2 base, CM2 grip, V3 throttle, Virpil pedals.
Latest "release" version here ->
latest "test" version here ->

2. Make sure you are running Virpil Software as Adminstrator (right click short cut - Run As Adminsitrator)

3. If updating firmware ONLY have one Virpil device plugged in at a time, if software freezes (not responding) - just select device on USB LIST (top left side)

4. I am getting incorrect button presses/operation of my virpil device after a firmware upgrade / create&save profile / calibration,
this is usually down to the incorrect profile being loaded onto the device. Check your device type and try to make sure you are using the correct base and grip profile

5. If using a USB Hub and having problems plug the Virpil Device into the Motherboard USB port

6. Anti-virus, sometimes AV will NOT like Virpil software, you can temporarily disable you AV do what you need to do with
the Virpil Software and then when finished re-enable your AV

7. Some other USB devices / software will cause problem for the Virpil software eg Corsair iCUE, some USB fobs for wireless mice
You can try disconnecting/shutting down the software and try the Virpil software again

8. Some buttons are missing on the User interface of VPC software (eg LED/button) Expert Mode in the VPC software can be toggled OFF and ON by pressing left control + F1

9. I cannot see my device in the Virpil Software to even update/configure it! This maybe down to firmware software incompatability, To fix press left control + F12 and in the options list untick Enable USB Devices list filter, press left control + F12, close VPC software and start VPC up again

10. The Virpil software comes with a firmware file that contains the code that is programmed onto the Virpil device. Each revision eg 190723 of
software is only compatible with the same version of the firmware on the actual Virpil device. Exported profiles are ONLY guaranteed to be compatible with
the same rev of software and firmware
