How to install Porsche PET 7.3 on Windows 8

This is a installation guide of Spare Parts Catalog for Porsche Cars PET 7.3, tested by one user at UOBD2. Hope this helps you all.

If you would run VmPlayer on your Win8 machine, and install a Xp image or win7/32 image with PET7.3 you’d be fine !!
Free download the VWware player

Tips for those using the VmWare player:
start the player with the virtual machine,
start PET 7.3,
and leave it in suspended state.

Then make a shortcut like this:
“C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation\vmplayer.exe” “d:\win7_32\windows 7.vmx” -u

It starts PET as an application in Unity presentation, which integrates seamless in Win8/64.
