Vida DICE - "NO TOOL CONNECTION" error

Post by Cosworth1981 »

Hi, ive seen on here a few of you are VIDA experts, and after working for Volvo I know what a great tool it is, So i purchased on and have had many struggles getting it to work. I originally had it running through oraclebox, and when i did VIDA worked but I could not detect the DICE, now Ive bought a purpose built laptop and have install Windows 7 Pro, and have IE 9 running. VIDA loads fine, DICE identified the DICE and shows voltages etc, all tests are good, but when I go into VIDA the TOOL COMMUNICATION box is empty with a red cross in the top corner. Any ideas?

You must be running a 32-bit browser for VIDA to work properly. Normally the desktop icons should launch the correct browser - if you are trying to get to the thing from a browser launched in some other manner, you might have a 64-bit browser.

I've attached some reg files. You need to run EnableIEHostingxxx.reg file depending on the Windows bitness.
That files are needed if .NET version is 4.5 and greater.
