    No worries, mate!

    Once I`m happy with the state of the WIS, I`ll move onto the EPC. I`m also trying to find the absolute latest version of that too!

    Re: WIS x64

    I`m happy to report that the 2010-4 version (the latest as far as I`m aware) is currently being uploaded as I type this!

    It covers the following models & Years:-

    900 - 86-98
    9000 - 85-98
    9-3 (9400) - 98-03
    9-3 (9440) - 03-11
    9-5 (9600) - 98-10
    9-5 (650) - 10-11

    If anyone would like to beta test this installation too, just PM me and I`ll send a link.
    I`ve currently tested this on 2 Windows 10 x64 machine but nothing else at present.

    <update>I`d just like to point out that this is the EPC I`m talking about!</update>

    Frank.

    Re: WIS x64

    Glad to hear it!

    If I don't get the 9-2x WIS in the next week or so, I`ll just release both packages 'AS-IS' and declare my little project finished.

    Re: WIS x64

    Some info for people with Non-English versions of Windows:- You will be required to make a 'Users' group on your computer for the WIS to install properly. This can probably be removed afterwards and if I ever get round to re-doing the installation packages, I`ll make sure it's not needed..

    Re: WIS x64

    The Latest version of my installation is now ready.

    This latest (and possibly final) version has the following fixes.....

    1. Should have no more issues with non-English versions of Windows
    2. Changes the shortcut(s) from advertised to standard, this should stop re-installs being required after large Windows 10 updates
    3. Adds a shortcut to the Desktop after installation making it more obvious that it has finished.
    4. Includes the extra PDF documents for the 900 (Service Information, Modification Information & Technical News) that aren't actually installed by the original installer! Please see the note below.

    The installation still takes a long time to install, it is a LARGE program! When installed, it occupies 4.85GB but the installation file is compressed down to just 2.55GB. This saves on download times but requires longer to install. The installer still exhibits the same behaviour when installing eg, sits at 0 seconds remaining for ages - this is to be considered normal, when finished, the installer closes and now leaves a new icon on your Desktop.

    GM900 note. This WIS now contains additional files for the GM900. These files are PDF's that download from the WIS into either your default browser or whatever other program that is associated with PDF's. 2 of my machines crash when the WIS tries to start the download but any fresh install of Windows that I`ve installed the WIS to works fine. I therefore believe that there is nothing wrong with the installation per say, but there is something wrong with my other machines. I haven't been able to work out what is causing it yet - it seems to be related to the WisView.OCX calling MFC42.DLL which is a VC++ DLL. I suspect that some Visual C++ updates might be causing this. I have successfully installed the WIS onto fresh Windows 7 & 10 computer and it works perfectly so there must be something else installed on my other machines that is interfering in some way.

    PM me for the download link.

    Re: WIS x64

    Latest version of the EPC is now online.

    Nothing much has changed, I`ve just added a desktop shortcut to make it obvious that the installation has finished and also changed the shortcuts from advertised to standard for similar reason as listed in my WIS update.

    PM me for the link.

    Re: WIS x64

    Thanks go to Eulerian for providing me with the WIS for the 9-2x!!!

    I`ve now integrated it into my existing package, PM me if you'd like to test this version too (it hasn't had much testing since the 9-2x was integrated).

    Below is a list on Models/years currently covered by my WIS package:-

    GM900 94-98
    9-3 (9400) 98-03
    9-5 (9600) 98-10
    9-3 (9440) 03-12
    9-2x 05
    9-5 (9650) 10-11
    9-4x 11

    It should work on the following OS's :- Win XP (32&64bit), Vista (32&64bit), Win 7 (32&64bit), Win 8 (32&64bit) & Win 10 (32&64bit).

    Re: WIS x64

    My home computers have now installed the Latest Windows 10 build (v1703 aka Creators Update) and the latest versions of my WIS & EPC packages have been unaffected and continue to work as usual.

    I think it's safe to say that I`m finished now! Yay!
