August 31, 2021

Question: I bought VCM II SP239-B and downloaded Ford IDS / Mazda IDS & Ford Mazda patch. It will not allow me to install both together, nor will the patch work on either, it just shows a notice stating that the IDS can’t be found. how do I get these IDS software into VMware so I can run both on one PC. I already have VMware v6.0.2 installed with JLR SDD on it. engineer solution:


Divide the hard disk into two partitions for example C drive and D drive, and then install a computer system on the C drive and D drive.


Please look at these images, you can get multiple systems on this hard drive:
