What is ModKit Link?

In layman’s terms, could someone explain what the purpose of ModKit Link is? Thanks!!


Modkit Link is the bit of software that allows your computer to talk to the vex brain. It must be running when you open modkit, or the computer doesn’t recognize that your vex brain is connected, and you will not be able to download programs from your computer to the brain.

I always start modkit link before opening the programming software. In fact, even if it’still running when I reboot, I stop it and restart it each time I run modkit. This re-establishes an active communicaton link, and I never have any problems. (You can tell if it’s running because a yellow “M” icon will appear in your task bar. )

Hope this helps,


Thank you so much! That is extremely helpful.

You’re entirely welcome.
