    ELSAWIN

    Is this normal.....

    Received the Elsawin VW & Audi etc discs this morning. Intructions say before installing onto the computer make sure you turn off ANTIVIRUS, FIRWALL SPYWARE ETC......Is this normal....Has anybody else got Elsawin on their computer???

    Cheers

    A lot of software says that because the antivirus etc can interfere with some installation routines. I have ElsaWin on my pc and I never turned them off when I installed and everything was OK. They only mean you to trun off the antivirus etc during the actual installation process not as a perminant thing anyway.

    All mine have come from eBay sellers and I've never had any problems.

    I've got the 3.7 version,

    I've managed to install Elsawin...but now when I'm trying to copy the Audi data files it keeps saying go to control panel to install and configure system components...Been in control panel and can't find that anywhere...now I'm stuck
