So i took a punt and bought the Vida2015a with USB key being sold online now.

Literally took me 5 minutes to bypass the USB key.

the two setup.exe files request the key, the patch requests the key and vida monitor requests the key. I just used the 2014d versions of all of those and it installed like a charm.

Copy the DVD somewhere....

Install\DVD\Vida_dvdheader\Main\Setup.exe Replace with the 2014D version
Install\DVD\Vida_dvdheader\Vida\Setup.exe Replace with the 2014D version
Application\Copy\Vidamonitor.exe Replace with the 2014D version

Install, use you favourite 2014d patch and away you go.

I didn't even uninstall my 2014D and it upgraded it.


However,

Reports of model support past 2017 seems like a stretch of the truth.

So, it will extend the life of Offline Vida to 2016 models, but VDASH will be what most of us will have to live with.

If you haven't seen it, have a look here :-

I might need a tutorial on downloading the 2015. In my default browser (Chrome based), nothing appeared on the page. I tried Edge, and got a password box and entered the password. At least I think it's a password field, it seemed to like it well enough, but no download started. I ticced some of the other bits on there and got different responses, like a sign-up offer. Hard to tell what's going on, as there are no Western language characters displayed.

Any updated download link?

Volvo Vida Dice 2015A software download link: https://share.weiyun.com/53TN74M password: wcxk2g
You need QQ or wechat login to download from that link. Both are nearly impossible to create accounts in outside of China. Any other possibilities to download? Or could a kind user in China download the files into a more international friendly sharing site?

That's because this IS 2014D. They modified the setup apps to request a security key. We used them when developing apps that you want to protect without key codes. They also just downloaded the latest database from Volvo. I'll be release an updated VM with the updated DBs as well. No USB keys needed. It's bull**** to scam people the way they do. Volvo!!! Volvo never released a 2015A. They version after 2014D was online.

No wonder it was so easy to circumvent the security protection.

The more we can distribute the "fixed" non-usb version the less money these people will make :)

The link Dansken posted earlier, was created by my friend with the USB requesting Exes replaced already :)

Give me a few days and I should have an update for my current releases. Anyone that knows how can apply just the database updates or pull the DBs from Volvo.
