Hi guys,

Is it possible to install Oracle virtual machine and Vida 2014 on a USB flash drive?

My laptop has only 90GB of SSD and thought maybe if I run Vida via flash drive, it could save me from buying an old laptop.

When I had my old laptop I had no issues installing oracle and Vida, but never had this done on a USB flash drive.

Is this even possible and have you ever done this before?

Still have the DICE Commucation Error.

WIN10
Volvodiag VM
VIDA 2014D
DICE v.5.6.2

I tried creating a new USB profile in the VM (as read somewhere) to same result: TEST DIAGNOSIS = COMMUNICATION ERROR.

I can SEE the DICE in the Vehicule profile. Just cant use it.

Thanks for helping.

Have you ran the test util for the DICE unit yet? What color are the leds of the DICE you have? Can you see it under device manager?

Do you mean the DICE application itself?

I have a green steady light. Then on lug, a flashing USB one. Then it dies off.

If the LED stop then it's possible the controller chip in the DICE is damaged or gone bad.


Do you mean the VM configuration USB?

I was mileading, the green light (FIRMWARE) always stays on. The amber light (USB) flashes on connection then dies.

Will take a look at the above,

External 250GB SSD is about 35$ on Amazon... Import the virtual machine to it and you now have a portable VM install.

@otter

Downloaded Vida from VolvoDiagnostics. Tried importing the VIDA-2014D-English.ova file into WMware Fusion and get the following errors. Any ideas?

Should I abandon using the Mac for Vida and dust off my Lenovo running Windows 10? This is all very frustrating.

Thanks.

Firstly, if you are looking for help with something from volvodiag, it should be under this thread instead of create a new thread for each issue. Second, I can tell from that file name that you downloaded the VirtualBox image, scroll further down the page and you'll find the VMWare image.

New virtual machines are available for both VMware and Virtualbox. Both images are multilingual. These images now include the following languages (Chinese, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Taiwan, Thai) The languages German and Finnish I've added manually because Volvo did not include them in any 2014 releases.
