MAUSS It might have been sensitive to the order in which they were installed. If I have the time, I might experiment with it... it's really the only thing I use that computer for.

ford2go This is a little amazing. I can buy downloading the .net -- which comes in 1.1, 2.0, and 3.0 -- all of which are supposed to be able to run on the same computer -- at the same time. ( I have 1.1 and 2.0)

Uninstallling the Java2.0 seems awfully strange -- unless the DVD requires a different version. Maybe it wants to install a different version ( which could be an earlier one), and it won't if one is installed. In my opinion that's a pretty bogus installation process.

Glad that you got it working.

MAUSS I finally got it to work by loading it onto a clean install of Windows 2000 Pro. I made sure nothing else was loaded on the computer, loaded the Microsoft .NET Framework, eSI program, then loaded the anti-virus, firewall, MS Office, etc. Fortunately I had enough parts on hand to build the extra PC. It seems to work fine now.

kses123 Has anyone figured this one out yet? I just got the DVD and it just opens 127.0.0.....blah blah and it cannot find it. Anyone know what I should do?

MAUSS After much searching, I found copies of the original paper GM eSI DVD installation instructions online... this looks promising. It says that the Java 2 Runtime Environment has to be removed before installation and that Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 has to be installed. I'll have to try this again tonight.

MAUSS The eSI software has a web server (Tomcat) built into it to allow access to the files. The icon on the desktop opens the 127.0.0.1 address (the Tomcat server inside the computer), but it can't seem to open the eSI data files themselves from there. This is where it comes up and says that the Stand-alone data files need to be installed. I guess it could be looking in the wrong place for them.

On Any computer 127.0.0.1 should be the loopback address and valid. It's the reference address for itself.

MAUSS One computer is running Windows 2000 Pro, the other one Vista Home Premium. I disabled the firewalls, anti-virus, and everything that wasn't absolutely necessary. In what order did you install everything?

I would think that the SI Stand-alone data that it's asking for would be the stuff that's in the "Copy to HardDrive" folder. These folders and files were installed in the C:\Program Files\GM SPO\eSI\SIROM\SIen folder (Db, R0, R1, R2, R2.1).

HalfOunce What operating system are you running and are you running a firewall??? 127.0.0.1 is a loop back to your own machine nothing to worry about. You will want to shut the firewall down for a few mins to install the software... You should have a disk labeled "application" thats the first disk to run...

HalfOunce Should have no problems installing it and running it as long as your "firewall" does not block it...

GM eSI DVD question

I bought a GM eSI Factory Service Manual DVD for my daughter's 2004 Chevy Malibu and I must be doing something wrong with the installation on my PC. Does anybody have any experience with this?
