I also wanted to confirm what another member posted regarding being unable to get a VCX Nano (GM MDI/GDS2) to connect to my bench E67, despite the tool appearing to have initialized successfully.

On the bright side, I was able to read and write both stock and modified calibrations using an Amazon SM2 Pro clone without issue.

How did you manage to get initial connection to tool. Did you fake it it was mdi or some other way. I tried to configure it for other devices, but only mdi and dice are available for selection.

Not sure if this is what he did but you can point the J2534 selection to point at a different dll.. I tried the mdi2 dll and If I remember right ti failed. I don't have any other j2534 device to try besides the gm mdi..

Clones are clones, even if someone got one that worked you cant tell what the next one will be. You can try it, but you never know. Even the genuine ones wont do VPW/PWM protocol, but this is CAN so it might be ok.

What windows OS are you running ? (7,10, 11?) and is it 32bit or 64bit?

Maybe this has been mentioned already, but is there a GitHub page for this great program so I know I have the most up to date? I might have an E67 in a 2008 Trailblazer 4.2L to experiment with.

No. The developer flashed his car, updated the tool in this thread to support J2534, not just the volvo dice tool, then stopped working on it.

Someone would need to RE it and fork it if they wished to keep developing it.
