Yes, on my 2015 MacBook Air
1moretech had everything needed in the download. VM, windows, all the drivers and bugs worked out. Compared to the frustration I’ve read about from others who downloaded for free, his could not have been easier

Does switching the DRL off trigger a "bulb failure" message ?

The VM downloads no longer exist :(
If I have to pay $200 to Volvo and buy the Vida/Dice machine that won't be good. Any way to know in advance?

Download "community" version of VIDA from torrent, install it yourself. It is not hard at all, just read the software requirements before you try to do anything.

What I meant was someone posted the car needs a $200 upgrade before the DICE unit will be able to change anything. That would be an unpleasant surprise.
I have enough spare computers around I can configure one to do what it needs to.

I believe that upgrade charge is to access other special features and activations normally not granted unless you are a dealer or have a paid subscription. You should not need any upgrade in order to access DRL settings, just the regular ViDA/DiCE without paid subscription.

It needs a user customizable software loaded into car prior to tweaking settings like DRL or changing miles to km.
