You have not said what manual or which part exactly that you have downloaded. :?

Was it one of the zip files or one of the pdf files. :?:

For zip files you can use a program called 7zip to extract the zip file. It's free and comes in a 64bit version.

If it's a pdf you are having trouble with, I suggest using FoxIT Reader. It's also free and comes in a 64bit version.

Hey thanks for getting back to me it was the GL 1500 2000 Electronic Service Manual in zip format that I was having issues with .
I got it figured out for some reason I had to open it with winRar32 bit program once I did that it now works fine

Thanks Again

Update I just tried it on my Laptop and no go the laptop is a 64 bit system and the program manual I believe is written in 32 bit thats why it works on my desk top ( At Least I think that is Correct ) in any case I got a working copy

The old Honda electronic service manual application is indeed an old 32 bit application that will not run on a 64 bit computer. There is a way around it however - install Microsoft Virtual PC (it's free!), load a 32 bit version of Windows into the virtual PC, then run the service manual inside that.
