You do not install the license. Follow the video to install the license. If you still meet this prompt, then change another computer to install the software, your computer is not compatible with the JLR software. This software has requirement for computer: JLR software requires Windows XP(sp2 or sp3) professional Edition 32-Bit, Computer memory:  at least 1GB, CPU: at least 1GHz, Netbooks (ULPC:Ultra low-cost PC) not allowed.

From your photo, we can see your patch file cannot be run normally. This is the system problem. This VCM software is not compatible with your system. Please use professional XP system. Another information: When run vcm patch, installed vcm ids software cannot be open.
