Here is what the user said:


Have just installed Odis 2.0.2 onto win 8.1 X64 with no problems and connected to our 2002 Audi A4 avant with a clone 5054a diagnostic interface.

Only thing i found is to use Windows 7 or Win xp sp3 compatibility mode on setup in OffboardDiagLauncher Properties, and to make a shortcut from the actual launcher in "C: Program Files (x86)" and place on desktop, run ODIS program as Administrator. After this, the program will run. It's tested with the vehicle, and it's working fine!
Did not use the Bluetooth just the USB cable and all working.
