Part 1: Which tools can I use with this Ford IDS 105.01 VMware? What functions are tested OK?

Ford IDS 105.01 VM compatible interfaces:

VCM IDS 3 (It can use latest Ford IDS 105.01– confirmed by engineers)


VXDIAG VCX NANO for Ford/Mazda (Tested OK by users)


Ford VCM II Clone (Best quality, some yes, some no)


Ford IDS 105.01 Tested OK Reviews:

I did 6 module programming on a 2013 explorer yesterday and all OK!

Ford IDS worked great today. Programmed a few keys and flashed a PCM already. Working flawlessly. Hope it keeps it up.


Today I’ve programmed a Ford Focus blue key with this virtual machine and Ford VCM2. Tested ok!

I’ve used it on 2015 F-150 to enable Car Configuration Parameters without any problem


Tested also with latest VCX manager and updated firmware on the NANO => work great with my VCX NANO Ford


I can now confirm both of these images are working with the Allscanner VCX Brand. Not sure if it makes any different but I used the latest VCX manager from the website.


I can confirm also. I made persistent HDD, then I installed drivers, restart. I checked license of VXDIAG… Then non persistent and now is ok.


Part 2: How to install Ford IDS 105.01 VM correctly?

Download Ford IDS 105.01 VM from here:

To be honest… Just turning non persistent off before the first start is all u need to do… And also click I moved it.

Leaving internet on doesn’t matter.

In fact u need to keep it on if u wanna do programming from the server.

Part 3: How to solve Ford IDS software error “Intel VT-x is disabled”, “64 bit operation is not possible”?

Got the problem when run Ford IDS 105.01 in VMware machine:


This virtual machine is configured for 64-bit guest operating systems. However, 64-bit operation is not possible.

This host supports Intel VT-x, but Intel VT-x is disabled.

Intel VT-x might be disabled if it has been disabled in the BIOS/firmware settings or the host has not been power-cycled since changing this setting.

(1) Verify that the BIOS/firmware settings enable Intel VT-x and disable ‘trusted execution.’

(2) Power-cycle the host if either of these BIOS/firmware settings have been changed.

(3) Power-cycle the host if you have not done so since installing VMware Workstation.

(4) Update the host’s BIOS/firmware to the latest version.

all other images of IDS working without problem

need updating BIOS


The error means you CPU isn’t configured or capable of 64bit virtualization. Check your bios setting!

Change computer BIOS about virtualization that was disabled, change to enabled. Now IDS is working ok!



Part 4: IDS Ford software V105.01 Q&A

Q: What windows it works? And do I need a special winrar version to open the file ?

A: Windows 7/8/10 64bit all OK. Just use latest winrar version available from rarlab website.


Q: Help please! I have a VM ware IDS 105, but is asking for license?

A: Shouldn’t ask if you click ” I moved ” it at first start!

Most of people license error come from clicking ” I copied it” when u first start the VM.

You should click “I moved it”.

Delete the VM.. unzip/ unrar again.

Start over.

Click “I moved it” then no issue anymore.


Q: Is there a way to accelerate this VMware? May I active some options for that?

A: This VM is using 1.5Gb so you will need at least 4Gb on your machine. CPU preferably an i5 processor. Allow more RAM, more CPU. but it won’t ever be like a native machine.

Or try running defrag in VMware> HDD utilities

Hope it helps!
