Buyer beware - emanualsonline.com
« on: May 09, 2018, 09:06:44 PM »
This is a warning to folk who may be tempted to pay for and download a workshop manual from emanualsonline.com. I got caught with the ALFA 147 manual which they advertised as being in PDF format. It was actually in some strange virtual machine format that required it to run on a program that emulated the old windows XP. The whole thing had to be viewed through a tiny window on the screen - and with zero functionality. The support is a joke - you talk to imbeciles who either don't read, don't understand or who are just rat cunning and try to sidetrack you and baffle you with BS. Writing to them is a waste of time. Really p'd off.

I just tested my eLearn and it prints the pages fine, not the LHS menu though.

Yep - the e-manual will print. No problem with that. But the manuals supplied by the emanuals online company are a different format - "Virtual Machine Files" Avoid these and this company like Dracula avoids the crucifix

Are you sorted now with a 147 manual or still searching?
