Definitely try with a genuine RossTech cable first.
I've used VCDS-Lite (and before that VAGCOM) with "generic" cables and had assorted issues connecting to different controllers, even with a genuine registered (paid for) copy of the software. Magically with a genuine cable the problems disappear and they all talk.
Might not be your problem but it's where I'd start. And the genuine version will let you reset the codes too.
