Easymanuals - NOT!

Hi there - I too was looking for a manual for the B-Max and eventually paid for the Easymanuals option;-


Had I known then what I know now - I wouldn't have bothered.
After paying the fee 14.99 - I was sent a link to their user site and spent many hours downloading what I thought would be the manual - it wasn't - after leaving the download running overnight and the following day, it finally downloaded a 6.1Gb file!!!
This then requires you to install a version of Windows XP VMware Player into your computer which works as a virtual Windows screen within your existing Windows package - you should then be able to run the manual like you are in a garage -maybe??
After spending many hours and following the instructions exactly, it didn't run - and froze at the same point every time with the Blue Screen of death stating -



"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.
If this is a new installation, as your hardware or software manufacturer fo any window updates you might need.
If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.
Technical Information:
*** STOP: 0x00000050 (0xE1454000,0x00000001,0*806380EE,0x00000001)".


I contacted Support who in fairness offered to send a .pdf instead - but not for my model of B-Max!
The .pdf was over 2344 pages long, but virtually all pictures and hardly any explanatory text. The pictures weren't good quality and finding anything wasn't easy.
Proceed if you wish, but I won't recommend their product.
Sorry

those manuals can work, but essentially you need a degree in computer science to make them work. also as you see, some of the downloads are huge!
