How to Install VOLVO VIDA 2012D with Patch and EWD 2012D on Windows 10
Step 1: Download the files
The first step is to download the files you need to install VOLVO VIDA 2012D with patch and EWD 2012D on your PC. You will need two files: the 2014D_Repack.iso file, which contains the VIDA 2012D software, and the Patch 2014A-B-D-2099.zip file, which contains the patch and EWD 2012D. You can download these files from the following links:
VOLVO VIDA 2014D Patch 2030.exe
You can use any torrent client software to download the ISO file using the magnet link. Once you have downloaded the files, unzip the patch file to a folder on your PC.
Step 2: Install .NET Framework 3.5 and Internet Explorer 11
The next step is to install .NET Framework 3.5 and Internet Explorer 11 on your Windows 10 PC, as these are required for VIDA 2012D to run properly. To do this, follow these steps:
Go to Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Programs and Features > Turn Windows Features on or off.
Check the box for .NET Framework 3.5 and click OK. Wait for .NET Framework 3.5 to install and then reboot your PC.
While you are in the Windows Features window, also check the box for Internet Explorer 11 if it is not enabled already.
Step 3: Mount the ISO file and run the scripts
The third step is to mount the ISO file of VIDA 2012D and run the scripts that will install the software on your PC. To do this, follow these steps:
In Windows File Explorer, navigate to the location where you downloaded the 2014D_Repack.iso file.
Select the file, right-click on it and choose Mount. The ISO file will show up as a DVD drive in your File Explorer.
Open the DVD drive and run scripts 1-3 in the root directory of VIDA2014D_RePack.iso, one at a time. Follow the instructions on each script and wait for them to finish.
Step 4: Run the patch
The fourth step is to run the patch that will update VIDA 2012D and EWD 2012D to work until 2099. To do this, follow these steps:
Navigate to the folder where you unzipped the Patch 2014A-B-D-2099.zip file.
Run the VOLVO VIDA 2014D Patch 2030.exe file as administrator.
Follow the instructions on the patch and wait for it to finish.
Open the DVD drive and run script 4 as administrator.
Follow the instructions on the script and wait for it to finish.
Do not run script 5, as it is not necessary for VIDA 2012D.
Reboot your PC.
Step 6: Wait for Java and VIDA monitor
The sixth step is to wait for Java and VIDA monitor to start up and request permissions. To do this, follow these steps:
After rebooting your PC, wait for a pop-up window from Java asking you to allow access through the firewall. Click Allow access.
Wait for the VIDA monitor icon on the system tray to turn green, indicating that VIDA 2012D is ready to use.
Step 7: Install IE Tab extension and open VIDA
The final step is to install the IE Tab extension on your web browser and open VIDA using it. This is because VIDA 2012D only works with Internet Explorer 11, and not with other browsers. To do this, follow these steps:
In your web browser (Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome), go to the web store and search for IE Tab extension. Install the extension and approve the installation of the IE Tab helper program.
Use IE Tab to open http://localhost/Vida/, which will take you to the VIDA login page.
Bookmark the VIDA login page, so you can access it easily in the future.
Login with the password admin or 1-4 for specific partner groups.
