Assume other folks are seeing this, license file in the 2013D patch is set as subscriptionExpireDate="2027-12-31 23:59:59", getting countdown now. 2011D is the same thing, at least the one I'm looking at. Who smart knows how to edit the license file in the patch executable? Can see the license file information if you change the .exe to .rar and re-open.

I'll probably figure this out at some point but wanted to give folks the head's up as this is what I've been seeing since yesterday and it's not the first time this has come up. If someone knows how to do it, please assist.

Thanks

Yep, getting the same on my 2014B version and interested in the solution as well. Thanks for starting the thread!

I just had another thought. Since this is a general VIDA issue that many users are likely to run into, maybe we should ping a moderator so they can add an announcement to all the forums? I think that once it's expired the software is essentially bricked.

Maybe someone can translate it into an easier step by step for those of us who those words don't mean much to.
Just run the corresponding patch above. Or open the exe file in winrar and edit the license file with a text editor. IE: notepad. Run the patch again. The ones linked above are edited to 2030.

No problem! Although I simply copied the links from a post on the volvotuning.net facebook page from today. Not sure if he's on here to credit

Didn't for me. Not sure if mine "expired" before I downloaded the patch, I accidentally grabbed the wrong bit version, or some other conflict is going on, but I have an error when trying to communicate. Trying to reinstall from the DVD now and walk through it all again.

Will not work for me, I'm at 2011 and 2013. Have tried repeatedly in editing the license file, easy to modify and looks like I save but will not save in the just opened .rar location. Cannot do on desktop then drop/replace in the .rar, cannot do in place with any number of editors (Atom, ResourceHacker, Notepad,Visual Studio) and get it integrated in the .rar (and eventually into the .exe). Sure I'm missing something but until I can do 2011 and 2013 license edits and save in the executable, I'll be at a pause. If someone can do a quick/dirty description on how to do this change, I for one would appreciate it. Thanks

Is the patch only for 2014D? I have a corrupted 2014D disk that came with my DiCE (the part3.rar file, specifically), so I stayed with the 2014B version I got a while back.
