(Solved) Volvo VIDA 2014D Patch Cannot be Found on Win7

Customer problem: I just bought a VIDA Dice 2014D OBD and I’m using the Win7 as required.

When installing, it asks administration rights to install, ok, rights given. Next, a window pops up saying something about skill.exe being not recognized as a command or sort of and the same time another window opens saying that %VIDA_HOME%patch\filldb.cmd cannot be found, make sure you have written the name correct. What the hell is going on?

The discs included with the DICE units can be a problem. My disc had printed instructions and a read me on the disc, and neither worked at all. I noticed in the directory of the file system on the disc, that there were 4 ISO Disc files on the disc. I used a disc copy program to make an installation disc from the ISO, and that worked. I’ve also installed the VIDA downloads offered by the wonderful Roxana, both as direct WIN 7 installs and as Virtual Machine installations, and they all worked with my eBay DICE. The easiest thing for you would be to download the direct Win 7 install file from her thread, and be sure to get the latest patch.exe and the EWD (electrical wiring diagram) files, too. The patch will allow you to log in to the VIDA program. It would also be necessary if you unpack your disc, as the logins would likely be expired on those, too.

I’ve built a new ISO for those that want to directly install on their systems with the updates and my redesigned interface already applied. It also contains all the needed files for the install whether on 32bit or 64bit and all 3 patches for the different ways to install… (32bit, 64bit, 32bit installed on 64bit system)

 

Virtual Machine System Minimum Recommendations:

CPU: Intel i3-2100 or better (64bit required)

RAM: 6GB RAM

HARD DRIVE: 40GB free space

 

USB Editions System Minimum Recommendations:

CPU: Intel Core2Duo or better (32bit capable)

RAM: 3GB RAM

STORAGE DEVICE: 32GB or better USB 3.0 (Recommend SanDisk Extreme)

Legacy Boot Mode Support (UEFI won’t boot)

 

Patches, Documents & Walk-throughs can be downloaded from any of the download links below

Download Links:

Image Download

VMWare Player

VirtualBox Installer

7-ZIP – You’ll need this

 

For direct installs, just download the file 2014D Installer.7z. This file contains everything you should need to install including patches and updates.

 

VMWare Virtual Machine Setup:

1.Download the virtual machine 7zip image

2.Download VMWare Player or VMWare Fusion. This will depend on which OS you have running.

3.If you have Windows but don’t have 7zip. Download it. I believe most Linux distros support 7z files out of the box or can be easily installed via the Software Centre. If you are on Mac OS, you can use ‘The Unarchiver’ available via the App Store.

4.Once you have everything downloaded, install your hypervisor of choice. This would be VMWare Player or Fusion. Advanced users can use virtual box with minor modifications I believe.

5.Extract the 7z image file you downloaded to a contained folder. The password is V0lv02Rule You can run it from this location or move it to another location. Doesn’t matter.

6.Locate the file ‘Service Machine.vmx’ and double click on this file. It will open your hypervisor. You may be asked if you copied or moved this. Just click moved.

7.If you want to adjust the VM image settings now if the time to do so. Things like number of cores dedicated to the VM and how much RAM you want it to be allowed to use.

8.Make sure you set the USB setting up to match your machine. If you plug the DICE into a USB 2.0 port it needs to be USB 2.0. If you use a USB 3.0 port, it needs to be set to USB 3.0

9.Run it and enjoy.

 

USB Image Setup: (For more advanced users)

1.Download the image from the builds folder

2.Download the USB Imaging Tool.zip file from tools folder

3.If you have Windows but don’t have 7zip. Download it. I believe most Linux distros support 7z files out of the box or can be easily installed via the Software Centre. If you are on Mac OS, you can use ‘The Unarchiver’ available via the App Store.

4.Once you have everything downloaded, extract the USB Imaging Tool.

5.Run the tool. Select your USB drive from the list on the left. Click Restore. A window will open to locate the IMZ file. In the bottom right is a drop down menu, change it to ‘Compressed (zip) image files’. Locate the folder where you downloaded to and select the IMZ file. Click yes to restore and overwrite the USB drive.

6.Run it and enjoy.

 

Hope it helps you!
