This is getting annoying :lol:

I have Disco, Def, 2 x Range Rover Parts Manuals (all Genuine LR)

I now also have thanks kind soul :D A EPC Loaded and running on Wind 7

and

NONE of them have anything I need - which is the parts diagrams and Numbers for the 3.9 SERPENTINE engine

:blink:

Just where and which system has these (and don't Say MicroCat - W7 and MC = Headaches and no worky :( )

What about this ? :

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/LAND-ROVER-DISCOVERY-2-1999-03-OFFICIAL-PARTS-CATALOGUE-/360291531374?pt=UK_CarParts_Vehicles_Manuals_Litterature_ET&hash=item53e30c7a6e#ht_1763wt_911

Its says 4.0 - is that a Serp or a Thor ?

HELP !

It's a piece of cake to get it running in Win 7:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx

I use it for cross-system testing all the time.

I also have a Vista, XP SP0, XP SP1, XP SP2, IE6 IE7 and IE7 versions.... but the XP mode one is the easiest for Nige.

Having said that I have Microcat and happy to look up stuff for you Nige...

TBH i recommended VirtualBox because i tried the MS one on my laptop a few months ago for a similar app for VW/Audi cars. The MS thing is slower, and just seems pretty clunky. It also refused to boot after i installed the Audi software, without any error messages or useful debug info.

Scrapped it and installed VirtualBox, and its a lot nicer to use, and seems to boot much much quicker too.

Ok you need to find a Windows XP CD or ISO image and install it inside the VM, but its not that difficult, and the resulting VM is properly portable too.

That's Thor AFAIK, they came in in 1999, didn't they?

What part numbers are you after Nige?

:(

I basically want all the pages that relate to the engine / rad / cowling / etc so I can work out a shopping list

My local LR dealer is less use than a Shaved Money (Actually Mr "behind the Counter" I think may be one)

so I need to work out what I need.

Just can't find the info

As to the "To load Microcat on W7 you need a left hand wibble RS23412 unit with a Fergurlular compensation valve

coupled to your left testical whilst singing danny boy" is beyond my IT limited abilkities, and just ends in me

clutching the screen screaming obsenities at it :) which makes me feel better just before uninstalling it :(

Ho Hum

There MUST have been a parts book surely between 3.9 non serp book and a 4.0 Thor unit surely FFS

:(

Right :D

Thanks to a certain forum member - who I shall call "Mr A"

I now have a virtual XP Program running Microcat 2010 it seems :D

Whilst it took all day to download, it was easy (even for me :P) to install

and it works and worked 1st time :)

So, you know who you are, and I am extremely gratefull to you

Its what makes this forum so worthwhile - without your help

I would still be stuck - no names for fairly obvious reasons :lol:

Merci Buckets

:D
