Ford Microcat 2013
« on: January 20, 2014, 11:39:57 AM »
I have a working version of the November Microcat Europe.
Works fine, even without rolling back the date (there is a little tool that fakes the date for it :angel: )

Made a Torrent out of it as it's too big to share otherwise (8 gig)
You can find it @ www.kat.ph .
Just search for Ford Microcat 2013

Or just click on the Torrent file  ;D   [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

We only have the piratebay blocked in Holland.

I`ve added the torrent file as attachment, so that should work ok :)
@ least it will download from the DHT after a while, my server has already uploaded over 40GB from the files :angel:

Oh, it only works in a 32 bit Windows, either Vista, Windows 7 or 8.(1)
The runasdate tool doesn`t work in XP..

Just install it from disk 1 then reboot and start the CMD (that will copy the cracked microcat.exe and mg16.dll to the harddrive and creates the shortcut on the desktop)

Hi
Thankyou for this, mine stopped working ages ago.
I use hidemyass.com to allow my pc to create a connection to get to other countries servers. Other countries dont block piratebay :).
Cheers

I just downloaded it, but the crack.cmd file isn't in the crack folder. My anti-virus program also said it intercepted two files while downloading.

So your antivirus is the culprit here..

in the crack folder you`ll need : microcat.exe , mg16.dll , runasdate.exe ,crack.cmd and ford microcat.lnk

Just temporary disable your antivirus.(there is no virus in there , trust me..)

Here`s a way to manually install the program:

Install Microcat from the disk1 folder, then reboot as requested

After installation, delete mg16.dll and mg32.dll in c:\windows\system32
then, copy microcat.exe, mg16.dll and runasdate.exe to c:\microcat
(overwrite them)
Delete the Microcat icon from your desktop
Copy Ford Microcat.lnk to your desktop.

Then you can start Microcat by clicking on the Ford Microcat icon

The crack.cmd does all those things in 1 go  ;D

For myself i made a Virtual Machine out of it, way easier, runs with the free Oracle VirtualBox.
(just start the virtual pc...)

I've installed from the disk1 folder and rebooted as requested. But I can't find the mg16.dll and mg32.dll in the C:\windows\system32 folder. I've done the other things, but when I click the shortcut it only asks if it is allowed to run the RunAsDate, but nothing happens afterwards.

Strange..


The runasdate tool just fakes the system date for Microcat.
Sometimes the mg16 and mg32 dll files get placed in c:\windows\system (instead of c:\windows\system32)

If you change the date to december 1st 2013, can you start c:\microcat\microcat.exe then?

The C:\windows\system folder is completely empty, so it's not there either.

If I change the date into 1 december 2013 and try to run C:\microcat\microcat.exe it says the version of the file is not compatible with the Windows version.

I'm running Windows 7.

I just noticed the mg16.dll and mg32.dll are in the C:\microcat folder. Should I delete those?

You are running a 32 bit version of Windows 7 ?
Because Microcat still is a 16 bit program...(which cannot work in a 64 Bit OS..)

Since your c:\windows\system folder is empty, it looks like you`re running a 64 bit OS.
(and yes the installer is 32 bit, it does install on a 64 bit os..)

Crazy thing is: Hyundai Microcat IS 32 bit and runs fine on just about any Microsoft OS 32 or 64 bit.
Shame on Ford for that..

You can install XP Mode (it`s free, just google it) and install Microcat in that(just set the date to december 1st when you start it)

Yes I'm running a 64 bit version of Windows 7.

But I still have an old version of Microcat 2005 on an older laptop, perhaps I'll keep using that one. For me it doesn't really matter much as the Sierra didn't get much updates in between 2005 and 2013 anyway.  ;D  I just thought it would be easier to run it on my normal laptop instead of the old one, but now it doesn't sound as easy anymore.

You do know that Windows Phone looks like Windows 8 but it`s internally quite different?
It doesn`t run  normal WinPE (e.g. x86) software...

You`ll need either Windows Vista or Windows 7 (32bit) to run this program.
(i made a virtual machine out of it, that runs with the free VirtualBox from Oracle)

I have added the links to them in the topicstart :angel:

Luckily i am  ;D

I`ve made the "instructions" as simple as possible.
Bonus of the virtual machine is that it works 100%, doesn`t even matter which os you are running ;)

As long as there is a VirtualBox program for it, it works.
(Linux, Windows(XP, Vista,7,8) and MacOSX all work fine)

edit: removed the virtual machine, it`s being downloaded a bit too much...

You will need a bittorrent client to open the file.
E.g. Utorrent (www.utorrent.com)

Once that's installed,just open the file with it.
It will then download everything.

P.s
 It only works on Vista,Windows 7 or 8, just the 32 bit versions..
(it does install on a 64 bit Windows,but cannot run..)
