RarExpander was linked in the original writeup. The pictures clearly show what what prompt will look like when it asks for the next piece.

You're very lucky that it only took you 15 mins per disk. Mine was more like 30! There's a reason I never buy software on CD or DVD anymore...

The default RAM allocated to the VM is 512MB, which is MORE than adequate for XP doing nothing more than running a Java VM within IE.

Well, I missed it, sorry offended.

Did seem the instructions were to be on the Windows side, using 7 Extruder, but guess got mixed up with instructions that come with the C.Ds.

Not lucky, have a good computer.

Which V.M.? You mean that any V.M.Ware is going to always allot 512M.B.? Odd then my Windows 7 is at the 70G.B.. Something to keep in mind when setting up, since once have V.M.Ware installed, can never increase the size of its memory partition (older versions of Macintosh O.S. could).

RAM and "memory" are different things.

The VM storage size on the hard disk drive is fairly large. The EPC VM is ~46GB. Windows 7 can easily bloat to 100GB+ with very little on it if you run the 64 bit version. This is the storage space on the hard disk where all the files are stored, not the RAM used by the VM when it runs.

The RAM usage can be set in the preferences of the VM. Windows XP is typically set to 512MB, but can be changed if you prefer (there's no reason to). Windows 7 will typically allocate 4GB by default. The amount you can use depends on what is fitted to your computer. Most newer Macs come with 8GB of RAM standard.

You should not be creating separate partitions on your hard disk for the VM's to live in. The VM is its own self-contained file and does not need it's own "drive". The VMWare program takes care of all that for you. The folder you extracted from the RAR files on the DVD *IS THE VM ITSELF* There's nothing more you need to do other than open it with VMWare.

Think of it as a MS Word document, except instead of pulling up a written document, you're pulling up a fully working operating system, just run within a window (or fullscreen if you go that route).

First, please excuse me for mixing up RAR and RAM.

Actually, R.A.M. is memory, in that random-access memory. I.I.R.C. on a Microsoft O.S., if need more R.A.M., seeks space on your internal memory, this why need to clear that catch out for increased speed. Been a long time, so probably wrong.

Better yet, there is this from Wikipedia:
Random-access memory (RAM /rĉm/) is a form of computer data storage which stores frequently used program instructions to increase the general speed of a system. A random-access memory device allows data items to be read or written in almost the same amount of time irrespective of the physical location of data inside the memory. In contrast, with other direct-access data storage media such as hard disks, CD-RWs, DVD-RWs and the older drum memory, the time required to read and write data items varies significantly depending on their physical locations on the recording medium, due to mechanical limitations such as media rotation speeds and arm movement.

Hard disk memory of the V.M. Windows 7 that I have is 70G.B., I.I.R.C.. Love to have more, but alas upgraded to Yosemite before knowing it doesn't allow it. Or am I missing something? Was using the online instructions, but didn't match.

When I got my Air, 4 gigabytes was standard, but since could option the gift, did it, so have 8, split 4 and 4 (was 6 and 2, but too slow for eQuest and AutoC.A.D., especially if running at the same time).

Windows 7 is partitioned, thus why can't increase the hard disk memory. If wrong, love to know.

As to E.P.C., don't think it partitioned. I simply just opened it using V.M.Ware. If couldn't open it as you suggest, how did I obtain that screenshot? Why would I go to all that work to fabricate a lie?

Good grief, all wanted to do was help folks out and end up getting chewed up. No good deed goes unpunished, it seems.

Just so know, this was posted earlier, but might have gotten lost in all this, so appreciated.

Good place to start, despite there are a few pages missing. Even better, will search online for the part and compare prices.

Tell me about it. Spend a couple hours of your life doing a writeup for someone, have them not follow it, then chew you out about it. Talk about feeling appreciated.

I'm out...

Did try and follow. If didn't, then would have been clueless to start.

Where did I chew you out? Seems there was a miscommunication.
