When Installing Wilcom 9, Two Options Are Avalaible. Install From the .ISO, or Extract The .ISO withWinRar : (winrar is very simular to winzip but ready many more filetypes)
In My Experience the .ISO Install, although a bit more technical, is the Best Aproach, however both work, and are the Exact Same, other than where you Install From. if you are not comfortable installing Damemon Tools, the alternative method is to Simply Extract the ISO with Winrar into a Folder. From the Extracted Folder you can run setup.exe and Install from there.
ISO Method: When Installing from the .ISO You will Need to DownloadDaemon Tools . Download Here Ounce you have Installed DTools, you can start it by running c:\Program Files\D-Tools\daemon.exe.
You will Notice a Icon In you SysTray.
Right Click The Icon. Select Virtual CD/DVD-Rom / Select Number of Devices / Choose 1 Device.
As Shown Below
Next You Open the Same Menu, This time you Will Mount The Wilcom.ISO as Shown Below.
Select Mount Image. Then Navigate to Where You have Wilcom.ISO Stored.
Assuming all Went well The Wilcom Slpash Screen Will Come Up.
If it Does Not. You may have Autorun Disabled. Simply Go To your My Computer and Run it From the New Virtual CD-Rom Manually.(You will see a New Drive Letter)
Click the Quick Install, After Installation is complete let it hang on the Final Screen
Do Not Click Finish, DO NOT Reboot.
Right Click You SytemBar, Open the TaskManager.
The Following will open
Locate the Process ntvdm.exe select End Process. Locate winoldap.mod and End The Process. You may have to Select End Process twice if either does not Shutdown on the First Try. Also if wowexec.exe remain open end it as well.
The Object is to Shut the Setup down without letting it reboot!
Now Run the Service Pack 4 Installation. Again, Do Not allow system to Reboot, let it hang on the Final Screen . As before open TaskManager and End all Processes Related to the Install.
Open the Wilcom 9 Patch Folder. Highlight the Bin and DesignExplorer Folders, RightClick and Copy.
Go to “C:\ESWin ” and Paste Both Folders from the patch/crack folder to there corresonding folders /Bin and /DesignExplorer overwriting the Existing Folders.
You must Start Wilcom From the Start/Program Files/Wilcom/Designer or From the Icon on Your Desktop. If on the Initial Run It asks for the Version Number type without the quotes “9.0”
