2 Methods to Install Volvo VIDA 2014D on Window 10 Tablet

VIDA is a catalog of parts with a variety of instructions and manuals. Also, diagnostics, maintenance and adjustment of some parameters will be available using DiCE .

Below is a small example of working with VIDA 2014D and Volvo DiCE , and also described TWO ways of installing TWO variants (original and repack) of VIDA on Windows 10 (also installed on Windows 8.1). Additionally, added options for solving common problems with / after installation and some useful settings.

(The document was translated from Russian forum)

Volvo VIDA 2014D is the last (not the last) file version of VIDA available locally, i.e. installed and running on a separate PC. Accordingly, available to a simple user.
Since the beginning of 2015, the program is only online!

The existing error is nothing more than the LED license plate lights that I have installed. So, while these lamps are standing – there will be a fault, it does not lead to the device and it makes no sense to erase at the moment.

How to install Volvo VIDA 2014D on a PC with Windows 8.1 / 10 Pro / Core x86 / x64

-This instruction for installing VIDA 2014D from an .iso image (or from a folder) on a PC with Windows 10x86-x64 of all versions and versions (as of 08.10.2016). Suitable for Windows 8 of all versions and versions.
In Windows 7, install the usual way – run \ Install \ DVD \ Vida_dvdheader \ Main \ setup.exe
-If you have an image without the Russian language (and it is needed) – unpack the image by any archiver into a folder (for example VIDA2014D), download the archive at the end of the post , create the folder ru-RU in VIDA2014D \ DB , put the downloaded archive servicerep_ru-RU.zip into it , you can start the installation.
-If the PC has 2GB of RAM, 20GB of hard disk space (3GB and 30GB for 2014D) and less, you need to unpack the image and make the appropriate changes to the file \ VIDA2014D \ Install \ DVD \ Vida_dvdheader \ Compinfo.ini , in the lines Win7MinValue = write 512 , in Win7 Recommend = write 5,000,000 (or erase one digit at the end), save.
-If the PC is shaken by unsuccessful attempts to install different versions of VIDA – it is necessary to prepare for the new installation, clean up the OS (uninstall the components VIDA, SQL, remove the remaining folders, remove the remaining keys in the registry).

Method 1

1 . Preparation.
There is nothing to install additionally, except as specified in this manual. Also, there is NO need to disable / stop any of the default components in Windows 10 (defender, firewall, etc.).
a ) Install the .NET Framework 3.5 from:
– Control Panel – Programs and Features – Turn Windows features on or off
In the Windows Components window , note .NET Framework 3.5 , then OK , the .NET Framework 3.5will be loaded and installed , you may need to restart. If already installed, go to the next step.
b) Insert the image into the virtual drive (in Windows 10 it is present by default) by double clicking on VIDA2014D.iso .
Open the explorer folder with the image.
c ) Run cmd from the administrator from the open folder with the image VIDA2014D:
– File – Open the command line – Open the command line as an administrator
Before finishing the installation DO NOT close the cmd window , we need it twice.

Wait until the installation is complete. You can check the correctness of the previous installation in:

VIDA 2014D on Windows 8.1

 

 

Ways to solve problems with installation and startup on Windows 8.1 / 10 are taken HERE

Can Volvo VIDA be loaded on Windows tablet?

I have bought an cheap Volvo VIDA DiCE unit and successfully set it up on a small portable windows tablet, of course on VMware. I’ll post up here for anyone looking for it.

 

I have to say, as a software developer I didn’t expect too much from this, but thought it would be a bit of fun to do some work on it away from my main machine, which is a gaming rig desktop with 3 x 28″ monitors….Hardly portable!

It’s basically a mini Surface Pro with a little quad core with 2GB of RAM and a measly but OK 32GB flash drive as the main ‘C’ drive – Though a micro SD can be installed to create a ‘D’ drive.

Once I had set it up and had a play on Lightroom and Photoshop (both of which, work well on it) I thought I’d see if I could make it a tool for the T4 as it has two full size USB A ports on the side – Perfect for a DICE unit.

So, given Volvo VIDA doesn’t seem to play ball with the pre-installed Windows 10 and VIDA has stupidly high system requirements, I created a virtual machine using ‘virtualbox’, installed ‘Windows XP Black Edition SP3’ and hacked the config file on the VIDA install files to alter the memory and HDD size (thread on here on how to do that). I thought I’d be able to do this on my ‘D’ drive which is a 64GB micro SD card but unfortunately the speeds were unbearably slow (poor read/write performance on Micro SD’s), so back to the main ‘C’ drive, cleared up some space and installed it all. This only left me with about 3GB of space on the main host C drive after a disk clean up, but everything runs as it should and I still have my micro SD for my data and other applications.

***Virtual machine of XP and VIDA can be downloaded from the link below, though I started from scratch and made a slightly smaller VM – If there is interest I will export my image so all you have to do is import it into your virtualbox and you’re good to go.

I was really surprised at just how well this little tablet performs in a VM. XP loads and runs fine and the touchscreen works spot on with XP and VIDA software which is great when using in the car.
