VIDA Dice - Vida start fail

Post by philthevolvo »

Hey guys,

My VIDA application has stopped working suddenly and I recieve a HTTP 404 error.

The icon on the bottom right stays on the yellow triangle for a while and then ends up on a question mark with status 'start failed'.

I do remember leaving the computer on with VIDA running and didn't shut it down until my laptop died, which was the last time I used it with full functionality.

Anyone have any idea why this has happened and how to fix?

Try and reboot the computer? Sometimes I have seen that just a refresh of the browser will be sufficient.

Hi all,

Have you tried reinstalling Vida? Also try removing Vida monitor from the startup so it doesn't start automatically when window starts. I found this to help with Vida on one laptop then just start Vida from the All,in one icon on the desktop but I did find a few times I had to manually start Vida monitor then all started fine.

Good luck

Hey guys,

My VIDA 2014D has stopped working suddenly and I recieve a HTTP 404 error.

The icon on the bottom right stays on the yellow triangle for a few minutes and then ends up on a question mark with status 'start failed'.

I already have altered the date on the patch , but that did not help.

Anyone any ideas how to fix this?
