    You'll first need the download and install BitTorrent.

    Now you can download a copy of XP from this link: Windows XP Pro SP3 (2013) Activated - 2010kaiser (download torrent) - TPB ____Only click on "Get this Torrent" link with the magnet icon.

    Once you've downloaded XP follow the instructions in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCZJCKj7FPU

    You may also need a copy of WinRAR in order to extract the zipped XP files, and let me know if you have further questions.

    It's the Workshop Information System, which is a CD that has the repair manual on it.

    I used to have it, which I bought from someone who worked at Saab Cars USA. They picked it up from the trash when Saab Cars USA was dumping things and moving from the Atlanta area to the Detroit area.

    Thanks for the information David. Finding Saab stuff can be like finding hens' teeth. Fell in love with the quirky little
    cars when I test drove a new 96 way back when.

    I have a copy running on XP but for convenience I bought a Window 10 tablet for the huge sum of 72 and use it primarily to run WIS and EPC which it does well, no problems with printing. EPC has a great feature, if you right click a part number you can create a Picking list which can then go to your supplier to order your parts. Well I like it.
