How to install MB HHT (Hand Held Tester) on Windows 64 bit

BIG THANKS TO persona! All here is his contribution. If you want to share the content, please show your respect to the original.

Basically:

  1. i (@persona) create windows xp virtual pc (vhd), called windows xp mode (you can try making win 7 32bit vhd etc etc). then i copy HHT program (or install) in its C drive, make hhtpkw shortcut to its desktop.

i am sure this is the way MB Engineers did and hide it from public.

When configured correctly, with fast computer, the end-user will never know that they are running the application in an virtual environment.

  1. i use windows 7 64bit as a host. you can google, how to set windows xp mode in windows 8 64bit or windows 10 64bit as host.

Notes:
– 64bit xdos is the recommended version because of new MB VCI.
– if you have something useful to add, don’t hesitate to add it.

Disclaimer:
i hope you all will be entertained and get the ideas of running hht in 64bit system.
i have not tested it yet for diagnosing real car. my goal to share is to show HHT can be called from XDOS (or as HHT standalone) and run in windows 64bit smoothly
i made it as transparent as possible for educational purposes only.
