The Evaluation version has some limitations (naturally). They can be reviewed in the documentation (under the menu: Help->Help F1), then follow the links: Release notes -> Pro vs Eval. Does this sound like what you're seeing?

no, i plugged it into a mates VN and the dash and ALDL features worked perfectly but when i plug it into the VS the boxes are grayed out and i get no reading what so ever.

ok a bit of an update, i uninstalled EFILIVE V4 and reinstalled in on my laptop and on my desktop, on the laptop the ALDL and the DASH are greyed out but on the desktop its coloured, what could be causing this??

I trust you are using the correct vehicle definition file for the different vehicles?

Does the VS have a stock chip (or aftermarket)? Reason I ask is that we have seen occasions where a modified chip does not behave like a standard one and EFILive V4 will not communicate with it.

Also not sure what you mean by "coloured on the desktop"? Do you mean the Windows Desktop or just the EFILive V4 application window?
