|SP239-B has the difference working method as others. Quality A has the best quality. For ford VCM II which do not have WIFI adapter, if you need WIFI function, you need to buy the WIFI D-link Wireless card. Now vcm ii software adds VMware software inside. Best way is install the VMware first, then install the software on VMware. If you do not want VMware, you can choose the way without vmware to install.
What should you pay attention to install V97 VCM II FORD software:
Change your PC time before 2015.9 and setup your PC time zone to USA. It has two ways for software installation, here is the detailed instruction and advantage:
1) Best way install the software via VMware
If your PC has 2G RAM or more, then can use this one. For VMware, once you setup PC software installation time before 2015.9, then it will not be changed. Thus, no need you change PC time or frozen software. First install software from V86 to V96, then install V97. After done, then test this software with your car. Another advantage for this installation is, because this software no need frozen, when new software release in the future, you can go on to install the new software, just like this v96 finish installation and install V97.
2) Install the software without VMware
If you do not want to use VMware installation way, you can use this way to install. Still change PC installation time before 2015.9, then install V86 first. Then go on to install the next version. When you install the next software, usually it has 3 days, such as V96, when you install V96 ready, test it with your car, if it can work normally, go on to install V97 within 3 days. After done, frozen the software. Another disvantage for this is, because software is frozen, for next new version, maybe it cannot go on to install. Such as if you frozen V96 software, then cannot go on to install V97 VCM II software on the same PC.
How to solve VCM2 IDS USB device, language, license, drive issues
FYI, you’d read tips here if you have lots of issues with you VCM II IDS like "unknown USB device", language setup failure, "no valid license" and the like.
A lot of issues:
- try with V86 versión, when I plug in the USB give me this error "unknown USB device"...
- download VMWare V93 from this fórums it is on Russian and I can't change the language...
- try to install V92 like I saw on cardcodereaders through Youtube...
But even I put 31/10/2014 it says "no valid license"
note: I have format several times and tried with W7 Ultimate, W7 starter, W7 Pro... and always the same. Never works even if I always have in the BIOS the same date: October 31th of 2014
I cant install a XP because I have no drivers for it.
Advice & Suggestion:
IDS saves information to the master boot record of the hard drive, just reinstalling windows won't fix it. Either purchase a genuine license or you have to delete the hard drive partitions to rebuild the MBR and then reinstall windows. It is much easier to acquire VMWare Workstation 10 / 11 to install a copy of Windows 7 that you will use solely for IDS as you can make backup copies in case you goof up something.
What date you use is irrelevant as long as you continue to use the same date. Start with IDS version 91 -> upgrade to 94 (Use the VCM II firmware from this version) -> upgrade to 96 (now the newest IDS is version 109). You can start with an older IDS version if you want the old calibration catalogs, using this method will require you to download any calibration files you need if you plan to do any module programming. Additionally, if you don't purchase a valid license and are using a trial your IDS cannot acquire these files automatically over the internet.
Maybe you could have a try with IDS software from Chinese. They help IDS without expiration and no license issues. Sometimes, if you have good luck, remote tech support is available also, help such as remote installation, language setup and the like

1)FAQ/solution of v86
Q: Ford v86 vcm II wifi wireless card connected with USB works well, but it don’t function properly when Ford vcm II is connected with D-Link USB wifi. Of course, D-Link USB’s adapter is good that D-Link USB wifi adapterconnected with computer can work normally, but vcm’s lights don’t flash any more when D-Link USB connected with vcm II. In addition, it’s also useless that I try to change a D-Link USB wif adapter to connect with vcm II. What’s wrong?
A: please send a printscreen of software version to me for a check.
Q: The software version is v86.
A: You should open the cover of back machine and find the button, then press it all the time , next to link machine to the car, lastly to move away from the bottom. It’s time to link device to computer by USB and then open the software, which will remind you to update your device. No doubt, you should do it as that message. (Please note: You must use v86 version, because the process is software and hardware to update together.)
Q: Can Ford vcm II v86 diagnose 1996 year E-350 Ekonorain car?
A: It’s up to your car type, car or truck. You maybe could have a try if your car is a standard OBD port.
Q: For Ford vcm II, v86 software was installed on Win7 64 bit computer successfully. However, vcm II didn’t communicate with computer normally. I firstly tried W-LAN communication, which worked orderly about 10 seconds, then something was wrong resulting in no communication and two LED lights stopping flashing. What’s more, W-LAN port of computer worked well but W-LAN port of mainframe was out of order. In response to these matters, I attempted to link device to computer with 16pin line. To my disappointment, the result wasn’t what I expected, what should I do?
A: Change Win7 into the Window XP to reinstall software .
2)FAQ/solution of v98
Q: The lights of Ford vcm IIv98 diagnostic tool can’t flash and it doesn’t work when vcm is connected with the car. Is vcm broken?
A: You only need to change the electric condenser.
Q: Whether vcm II v98 IDS can be returned to mainframe paying for changing chip and updating.
A: Normal procedure is you must send the device to factory to update if you would like to update your version to v96. The detailed procedure is as follows: Firstly, need to pay the bill, and buyer will tell us how much you pay. Secondly, the returned device must be our machine, besides, we will ask buyer what kind of devices can be updated then tell you. After all, not any vcm II can be updated to v96. However, I have to remind you that upgrade exists risk. So I advice you can consider to buy a new version device if you are satisfied with the vcm II past using. The reason is returning it to us will spend transportation and upgrade expense, even much time, maybe it will also influence on your repairing car.
Q: Ford vcm IIv98software is installed by virtual machine and set up the software installation date before 2015.9 as requirement. But now the software is prompted that license software has been out of date. What is the matter?
A: The reason is you do network connections. In fact, it’s proved that network must be disconnect and time can’t be selected because of network to update automatically.
Q: Whether Ford vcm II can be tested on Ford F150,F250 and F350, even diesel vehicle and Australia’s Ford.
