How to solve VXDIAG GM GDS2 “No Valid Lease Found”?

I have one vxdiag vcx nano gm cable and when running GDS2 software, I get error “no valid lease found” .

I tried to reset the computer date to China date, uninstall anti-virus program, reinstall GDS2 software, all the same results.


Possible reason and solution:

You may start GDS2 software from VX Manager, please run GDS2 from patch directly.
