When you run JLR Mongoose SDD and unfortureatly get error message “Invalid VIN Number” shown as follows, what to do?
The problem is due to software installation issue or OS issue, not SDD issue.
100% working solution:
Firstly, browse http://en.file-upload.net/download-10999730/JLR139NEWPATCH.rar.html,
Download the patch file. Extract the .rar file, copy the patch2 file to Program Files_JLR_IDS_SDD and replace the original file in the folder. Then the error will disappear.
If the above-mentioned way is not working, please reinstall a fresh copy of windows xp, and reinstall SDD.
