Elsawin on Windows 7 64 bit ?
« on: June 01, 2010, 10:21:19 PM »
As title really. I have a new laptop which came pre-loaded with Windows 7 Home premium 64bit. I've tried to install my copy of Elsawin, but it just won't have it and keeps failing on the first stage of the install.

Has anyone sucessfully installed in on Win 7 64 bit ? If so, how did you do it and what version are you running please, or is it a definate no go ?

Works fine on my desktop with Win 7 HP 32 bit so don't think it's windows par sa, more the 64bit environment ?

Cheers

Andrew

Cheers for that Jay.

I've just tried to download XP mode from Microsoft's website, but apparently it's only available if you have either Win 7 Professional or Enterprise editiions. I have neither, I have home premium.

Bloody microsoft......

I know it  runs on 7 32 bit but as Jay says you need to run as XP and also as an Admin.

It's a VAG Dealer system some functions of which are repair manuals and current flow diagrams.

acquire something like vmware which allows you to run a virtual machine within the windows 7 environment,  you will need a xp iso image to install on the virtual machine.

There most certainly IS a Haynes manual for the Mk5 - I've had one for about three years now . . . http://www.golfgtiforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=108902

I have the haynes manual and for little things its quite good but the wiring diagrams are excellent on elsawin,

This is the only good thing about XP been able to run the likes of ETKA and Elsawin on it, 

My last netboook I installed a dual boot and used Vista and XP.
