How to solve VCM”Expired” Problem ?

We have a customer who bought an Ford VCM II to do his Ford Models.
During using,there is a problem occured
Here is the message he sent to me.

Hello I bought the ford VCM2 IDS module from you. I wanted to enable the license, but this gave me ‘expired’, so I can’t do anything with it.

vcm-problem-3

Please help

In the readme file it says as follows:

If you need to install the IDS to the physical machine, just 2 steps:

Install IDS software.
Install VX Driver VCMII 2.2.0.xxxx.exe

Note: Ford IDS 86 do not need license and can be freely install.
Note: Mazda IDS any version do not need license and can be freely install.
Note: Ford IDS and Mazda IDS can not install in one PC.

What have I done wrong?

I think there’s a bug in the software. When you open, you get these images:

vcm-problem-1

vcm-problem-2
I think the big problem is that the VCM module isn’t recognized by IDS, The VX manager shows connexion, but no possibility to connect in IDS.

does the vcm module has to be connected to the car for the ids program to regognize the vcm module?

For this kind of issue, the solution is “close the VM manager and change the computer time to Beijing Time East Eight District.

It is easy to operate

2.Softawre
Came with software CDs Mazda ID and Ford IDS. I was pretty happy with it, they all installed flawlessly

Here is my quick gudie for my success

Use virtual machine installer found on CD V100,install VM then create a VM
Then on the virtual machine
Install calibration from V81 CD
Install V91 from V100 CD and reboot without opening software
Once rebooted open software and agree to 3 day license,enter any details
Close software and install V96 and reboot without opening
Once rebooted you can open software
Install software on CD V100 for the VX device
At this point i just installed deep freeze found on CD V100

A bit of advice with the software is use virtual machine(its easier to delete and start again),
and follow video guides found on youtube
Kindly Note:No newest version,but they share the same installation method.
