    Someone posted a link on the old site to a place where you could buy the PDF version, at least of the A3 Maintenance PDF. I don't have the link though.

    Anyone got it?

    That erwin site is really good. And only 18.40 euro (roughly 12quid) a PDF too!!

    I'm going to order:

    1) A3 Body, Interior Repair manual - covers removing dash, armrest etc etc
    2) A3 Running Gear, cover suspension etc, including S3

    OK, bought these manuals and downloaded 'em. How the hell do I get round this sealedmedia sh##?

    My erwin logon details don't work with the sealedmedia Unsealer dialog.

    Re: A3 drivers workshop manual???

    Can anyone remember the guy who orginally bought the A3 Maintenance manual and put it on Gaunty's site?

    Presumably when he bought it from Erwin it was in .spdf form, but somehow its now in .pdf. i.e. password protection has been removed.

    If you know who the guy is please PM me. I might then be able to get at these manuals I've just wasted 36Euro on! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    Re: A3 drivers workshop manual???

    Al B,

    To get at sealed media files you need to download and install a program called unsealer which you can get from http://www.dotencrypt.com/. If you need further help on how to use the program go to http://www.ecch.cranfield.ac.uk/secu...1.html#opendoc

    Hope this helps

    regards

    Cheers Dave.

    The sealedmedia plugin I downloaded was from www.sealedmedia.com.

    The problem is still: my login details get me onto the Erwin site, but those same details do not unlock the documents. Yet they should. This is a total pain in the arse.

    I've sent them another e-mail explaining I still can't get in. I'll just have to wait and see what they come up with tomorrow.

    Thanks

    AL

    Re: A3 drivers workshop manual???

    Al,

    I had similar problems, you may also want to check that the file softseal.api resides in the adobe/acrobat/plugins folder. In my case the unsealer program had not installed it automatically and I had to manually copy it. You also need to be on line the first time you try and run the program.

    What we really need is something that gets around the spdf protection and converts to ordinary pdf

    best of luck with it

    regards

    DavidW

    Thanks again David.

    I checked for the file, it does reside in the Acrobat plug-ins folder. Still no luck though.

    Cheers

    Re: A3 drivers workshop manual???

    I've finally got into the documents. It was a password length problem - basically the length of my password was fine for the Erwin website, but too long for the SealedMedia unsealer.

    The interior manual is great.
