The program is prob too old to run on anything newer than XP.

If you have an old machine with XP on it I'd try that.

i have the same issue trying to run epc v.17. In my case setting my pc`s date back a couple years did it. What you could do is run it in compatibility mode to win XP. But trust me, it`s a waste of time if you don`t know the language.
Following instructions posted above I had it running on an Xp machine last year. Took a bit of guess work to get to the model your after (in my case facelift 9) but every time I seemed to retrieve part number the EPC bombed out!
