Anything purchased on eBay is likely a bootleg version - and there's a good chance it won't ever work properly.

I never did get mine to "install". It was old enough (most of the files date back to 98) that it had issues, though I can't remember exactly what they were.

However, try this.

first navigate to the program folder on the cd and click on either 107avi4 or 107avi5, both of which are html files. On my system, either gets you to the manual menu. If the computer asks if you should run, say yes.


If that gets you there and the manual works, you're home free. Just copy the program folder onto your pc and create a shortcut on the desktop to whichever of the files worked. You might want or need to rename the folder. I used MercedesManual so I wouldn't get confused.

Of course from here, this is all I can offer and if it doesn't work, you're on your own.
