(Solved) missing xml files – VCM2 IDS cannot complete PCM flash

Remedy for you guys when VCM2 IDS cannot flash PCM coz xml files are missing



I had a 2013 Ford fiesta TDCi .
I tried to do PMI ..
There is later update available for this PCM online .
I could not complete the pcm reflash as it was looking for two missing xml files on it ..
Is your IDS also a mix off old soft with later soft to keeep the licence for three days .
On previous vehicles i tried i never had problems on updating the PCM to latest calibration files..



I also have this problem, somehow all files in this folder got zero size. So every time it happened I copying them from another location and after programming works fine. I did a lot of cars and trucks with this setup


In detail..


path approximately program files/ford/ids if you have a problem do the search on the file name.

Install any new IDS version from motorcraft.com or any reliable source (I have mine from http://www.obdexpress.co.uk/wholesale/ford-vcm-ids-v108.01-software.html)

and copy them to host desktop.

After, in VM setting do share folders and you can get those files from VM
