Downloadable WIS (07/2013) and EPC (01/2013)

Be Warned. You need to have considerable technical ability to make use of the following.

Once installed the STAR WIS (Workshop Information System) and EPC (Electronic Parts Catalog) software runs in a virtual WinXP environment via VMware Player which allows it to be used on just about any PC. It needs a data connection to access the on-line versions of the EPC and WIS.

BenzWorld Member, BestBalbes, prepared a VM with WIS (07/2013) and EPC (01/2013). The rar-archive file is 25Gb,and when expanded the Virtual Machine file is 40Gb.

Brief instructions. Use VMWare VM Player. OS loads desktop with auto-login.
