Electronic manual problem

Post by reinyrooster »



Wasn't sure where to post this so here goes. I can't run the downloaded electronic manual on my home PC which is running Windows Vista 64bit....I get the error message that says....."cannot run due to incompatibility with 64 bit versions of Windows." Does anyone know if/how I can fix that to make this work? Have seen the software and love it....want to make it work at home!
Thanks.

Welcome to the nightmare of Windows Vista. :) Vista 64 will refuse to run old 16-bit applications. I can however run it with no problems under XP 64.

You can try running a 32-bit version of Windows (XP or Vista) in a virtual PC - look up Microsoft Virtual PC for information - and that will run the electronic service manual.

I got it to work on the computer in the other room, so I'm good for now. Thanks for the reply.

O.K., when I download the file it is zipped. When I unzip it, there are no .pdf files to be found. I've tried right-clicking on every file there, including the set-up files but none give me any option that's close to any sort of "compatability mode".
