OK, first things first. I won't tell you where to get ETKA 7 in this thread. That's blatantly beyond forum rules. The purpose of this thread is to explain how to install and use ETKA 7 for those that have already obtained it.

For those that don't know what ETKA is, it's VW's official parts catalog. It's what the dealer uses when you ask them to look up a part. Having it is very useful, as it lets you get the part numbers without going to the dealership, so you can shop around for parts. Also, ETKA's diagrams are sometimes helpful when attempting to understand how a vehicle's systems work.

INSTALLATION

The version you obtained may be different. However, as far as I can tell, this is the predominant version that's been spreading around the Internet.

Note for those that have installed ETKA6 in the past: You do NOT need to run at 1280x1024 resolution. ETKA7 only requires 1024x768, and is much more flexible as to how it handles different resolutions. Also, there is no distinction between European and US versions of ETKA any more - in fact, Argentina, Brazil, China, Mexico, and South Africa are in the same copy of ETKA, along with Europe and the US.

Either mount the DVD image using a drive emulator, or burn the image to a DVD and put the disc in your computer. If nothing happens, run SETUP.EXE.

You will be presented with the following screen:

user posted image

Pick the drive you wish to install ETKA on. For most users, C: is the correct drive. Note that it will install into C:\ETKA, so make sure that directory is clear.

Click Installieren to continue. ETKA setup will begin. At this point, it's pretty much just clicking next. Make sure you click US English when given the choice between US English and Deutsch.

FIRST RUN

To start ETKA, there will be an icon placed on your desktop, that looks like this:

user posted image

Double-click it, and ETKA will start. Unfortunately, ETKA starts in German language. What follows is how to change it to English.

You'll be presented with this screen when ETKA starts. Click on the button that's circled, ETKA STARTEN. (Once you have it changed to English, this button will say START EPC.)

Once you do that, you'll get this screen. Click on the "menu" button, then Sprachauswahl, then US Englisch.

Once you do that, everything turns to English. smile.gif

NAVIGATION

Now that we've started ETKA, and switched it to English mode, let's take a look at the interface.

The first part of the interface that we'll look at is the region switcher.

user posted image

This is a new feature in ETKA7. In previous versions of ETKA, a different program had to be installed for each region. That became... tedious... to say the least, especially as both programs couldn't be running at once. Now, ETKA7 includes all regions. You'll notice that the "LOCAL MARKET" for this version of ETKA7 is Europe - however, thanks to ETKA7's inclusion of all regions, we can switch to the USA. Simply click on the USA tab, and you're working with cars sold in the US.

Now, here's something that might not make sense to those that haven't used ETKA before. (Note that model designations have not changed in ETKA7, though, from ETKA6.) In the US only, cars that were produced in different countries have different designations for each country of origin. This mainly applies to those with Golfs and Jettas. D means German production, BR means Brazilian production, MEX means Mexican production, and USA means American production. To see which one your car is, look at the first digit of the VIN. 1 = USA, 3 = MEX, 9 = BR, and W = D (for Golfs and Jettas.)

user posted image

Once you pick a car (I'll use a Jetta built in Mexico as an example), you'll be asked to select the year, and restrictions. Restrictions will only be on cars where two body styles were sold in the same model year. The restriction where the numbers are before the ">>" signs is the newer model. (In my example, the ">> 9M-5-149 999" selection refers to an early 2005 (or 2005.0) Mk4 car, and the "1K-5-600 001 >>" selection refers to a late 2005 (or 2005.5) Mk5 car.) Double click on the restriction you would like to choose, or if there are no restrictions, the year, and you will enter the car's parts catalog.

user posted image

I have circled a button in red. In case you made a mistake and have picked the wrong model, clicking this button will return you to the model selection screen. However, you will have to reselect the USA tab. This button will return you directly to the model selection screen until you have entered a subgroup, at which point it will return you to the group selection screen.

user posted image

Users of ETKA6 will notice a major difference in the interface at this point. Rather than a single dialog box with all of the main groups, that opens another for the subgroups (parts for individual subsystems of the car), it's all in one window. Click on a main group, then a subgroup. In this example, I am looking for an oil filter for an early 2005 Jetta TDI.

After double-clicking on the subgroup you wish to view, you will see the following:

user posted image

The button that was highlighted above will send you to the group selection screen, not the model selection screen.

Now, on this diagram, you can click on a number, or you can scroll through the parts list. Either way, you will get to the part you want. In this case, I click on position 4, and it goes to the filter element with gasket. I would then write down the part number (ignore lowercase letters, and symbols in part numbers - only uppercase letters and numbers are valid), which is 074 115 562. This part number could be used to order the oil filter.

(If you do wish to know what the lowercase letters and symbols in part numbers mean, right click on a part, go to V-Pages, then go to Symbols - it will explain what they mean.)

If you need a closer view on a diagram (especially on smaller screens), right click on the diagram, and click Zoom Illustration. You will then be able to scroll around a magnified version. Right clicking again and turning Zoom Illustration off will return to normal.

You can also page through subgroups by using the circled buttons in the above screenshot.

SEARCHING

One very useful feature of ETKA is the ability to search for a part. ETKA7 has some critical changes in some of the search tools, so this section is going to be new to everyone.

I will begin with ATP, which is a search tool that searches for a part number that has been provided by the user, and returns all of the cars and diagrams that it is included in.

user posted image

First, make sure you are in the correct region and brand (if you're looking for Audi parts, switch the "BRAND SELECTION" to Audi.) Then, click the binoculars button. This will open the search dialog.

user posted image

Highlighted in red is the ATP tab. We do not want to use the part number tab, as it isn't useful for our purposes - only those of the dealer. Click on the ATP tab. If you are using ATP from within a car's pages (other search options that are available from a car's pages will be covered later), make sure that All Models is selected, unless you know that the part in question belongs to that car, in which case it will DIRECTLY go to where the part is when you search. Those who have experience with ETKA6 will notice that it is NOT possible to search across both Volkswagen Audi models in one search, unlike ETKA6. Also, it is not possible to search across regions. You must manually select the brand and region.

In this case, I will use the oil filter that I used in the previous example, part number 074 115 562.

Enter the part number WITHOUT SPACES, DASHES, OR ANYTHING ELSE TO SEPARATE IT, and then click search.

user posted image

You will be presented with a list of models that use this oil filter. In this case, I will select a 1999-2001 Golf built in Germany by double-clicking.

user posted image

As you can see, a green arrow is pointing towards the part, in addition to it being highlighted - it goes directly to the part, where it's placed. This feature can come in very handy if you end up with a part, but don't know where it goes.

Unfortunately, for those used to ETKA6, going back into ATP does not restore the search results. However, if you use the menu button instead of the binoculars button, then go to Search and then ATP, it will be preloaded with the part number, and you can change the setting to All Models, and click Search.

Also, a very useful new feature is that you can right-click on a part, and then click ATP. ATP will be preloaded with the part number.

Now that we're in a car's pages, we can search by part name. Let's search for a headlight. First, click on the binoculars button, then click on the Name tab (which is now available.)

user posted image

I have searched for the headlight, and it came up with four subgroups. One notable difference between ETKA6 and ETKA7 is that ETKA6 showed the main and subgroup numbers in the search results. One experienced with ETKA6 could tell whether the item was in the right main group at a glance. Unfortunately, this feature doesn't exist any more.

Double-click on the desired subgroup, in this case "halogen twin headlamp with halogen fog lamp". The parts that ETKA feels are the best matches are highlighted.

user posted image

It may take multiple searches to find what you need - be creative with the wording.

PRINTING

Printing ETKA pages will allow you to use the pages for reference at a later time when you're away from your computer. Also, if you have a PDF printer driver such as PDFCreator, you can create PDFs of ETKA pages, which can then easily be sent to other people via e-mail.

To print in ETKA, go to a page that you wish to print. We'll go back to our early 2005 Mexican-production Jetta's oil filter.

user posted image

Circled is the Print button. Click it.

user posted image

This dialog box will come up. The options mean:

visible text page: This prints only the text (the part numbers and descriptions) that is visible on the screen.

all text pages: This prints all of the text for that illustration.

Illustration only: This prints only the illustration, not any of the text.

Text and illustration: There are several options. In my experience, Portrait, all text pages is the most useful, based on how ETKA diagrams tend to be set up.

Click OK, and then you will be able to select a printer, and then print.

An example of the output can be found here.

CONVERTING TO US ETKA

If you don't like that ETKA kicks back to Europe every time you go back to the model selection screen, this can be changed.

Make sure that ETKA is closed when making these changes.

Assuming that you installed ETKA on the C: drive, open C:\ETKA\PROG\ETKA_VW.INI in Notepad.

Search for the following line:

CODE
defaultmarkt=RDW


And change RDW to USA, and save the file.

Do the same to C:\ETKA\PROG\ETKA_AU.INI.

Next, edit C:\ETKA\PROG\ETKA_USER_VW.INI and C:\ETKA\PROG\ETKA_USER_AU.INI. Search for the following line:

CODE
markt=RDW


And change RDW to USA.

Now you can start ETKA.

LOCAL MARKET will now be the USA. However, Europe will be listed as OTHER. I will edit this post once I figure out how to change this.

UPDATING

Simply run the updates. Then it's a matter of clicking Next.

However, you will be asked for a password. The password is AKTEForum.TK (with that capitalization.)

Whatever you do, do not stick the updates in C:\ETKA\DATA\VW\Updates\ and then expect it to work. What happens when you then run the update is it will begin to install, but be deleted half-way through, crash, and corrupt the entire ETKA database necessitating a reinstall. Don't ask me how I know. unsure.gif laugh.gif

Hi nicklockard,

can you imagine how frustrated i was for 2 days until i recovered the problem with this shit. i was about to go postal. I went mad. People allover the world have the same problem after the deinstallation and i figured this out (so you all dont need to format your harddiscs ;o))) :

1. Go to search and type "ETKA"
erase all files with this name, all folders.

2. Then go to C:\windows\preftech and look for ETSETU~1.EXE-23E0756F.pf and for Etsetup_ets_fat and erase this bitches. You can also look for these files by search.

3. Look for ETKINST or ETKINST.ini and erase them too.

Now after all this --> this rule is to absolutely follow:

- You should not have any Copy or Data of the Etka dvd on any of your harddrives!

- You have to install etka off the dvd and not from somewhere else


Now start the installation and it will work. the error with etmaster2000 and fatdevice will not show up any more. AND do not deinstall it anymore - this work suxxxx. Would be happy if you could inform me for updates for et7 for giving you this solution.



have fun.

Howdy, I have the same problem with the fatclient/etmaster. I scanned the hdds for the files you posted and cleaned the prefetch folder. Any other suggestions to get this installed without these hicups?

OS Vista Ultimate on HP ZD7000 laptop.
Fresh install from DVD (first time install on this computer)

First run: change the language from German to US English and back to first screen and run Update. After some time update finished (didn't asked for a password).
Next run of software on main screen popup with: Update no.: 598 (VW).
Select Yes (If I press NO and press start EPC everithing runs normaly) and error (new popup) contains c:\ETKA\Data\VW\update\temp\*.* and access denied (after the software is closed the folder temp situated in c:\ETKA\Data\VW\update\temp is empty).
Press OK in that window, software (main window) close and have a new Error window: Returcode1 with Error RR15! (press OK and that windows close)

I have the updates files eupdvw598D to eupdvw603D situated in following locations:
c:\ETKA\Data\vw\upload
and
c:\ETKA\Data\vw\update.

Is there anything I can do to run successfully the updates?

Thanks

nyc_tdi: First off, the updates CANNOT be anywhere under C:\ETKA.

Stick them under any convenient directory OUTSIDE OF THE ETKA DIRECTORY on the C: drive.

Then, do not click UPDATE in ETKA - instead, MAKE SURE ETKA IS CLOSED, then run the update. It's an EXE. Put in the password - AKTEForum.TK - and then let the update install. smile.gif

For those continuing to have this installation problem, I got around it somehow.. I followed the general logic in one of the posts above.. searching my entire C: and registry for the keyword "ETK" and intelligently removing any that shouldn't be there.. (web favorites and search histories can be ignored). Don't accidentally delete your ISO.. wink.gif

On my last attempt (which followed numerous unsuccessful attempts) I did the following differently.

I removed a ETK7.INI from C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Temp (look for other etka looking files in here, too, such as a cached version of the setup executable.

In c:\windows\prefetch look for other extraneous etka related files w/ a recent timestamp.. or even setup.*.. whack anything suspicious.

I removed C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\ETKA

Obviously you need to purge c:\etka

I rebooted after cleaning the entire system.

After the reboot, the first thing I opened was the setup.exe from the DVD.. it didn't pop up any error this time.. previous attempts would always give me some INI error (in german) initially, and then proceed to give me the language prompt and then die w/ the fatclient/ETMaster 2000 error... none of those showed up this time.

Hope that helps someone.

Hallo,
I don't know if this thread is still open or if anyone if still following it but I have just downloaded ETKA7 and encountered the installation problems described by others after cancelling the first install because i thought it would take longer than the time I had available.
Clearing the Prefetch folder and so on didn't work for me though until I found and deleted three ETKA files (can't remember exact file names) under C:\Windows
After that installation appears (still going) to be fine.

But I would still like to know if there is any way to modify setup before installation begins so only VW files are installed - I don't need the other makes.

Setup appears to provide this possibilty but the check boxes for other makes could not be unchecked

Okay so Setup has finished and I see Australia is not included as a possible MARKET. Any ideas?

Thanks

Hrm, I'd go to the dealer and keep a close eye when they look up the parts, if you can see the screen.

I suspect that Australia might be getting the European models, and not their own.

Unfortunately, you get the other makes whether you like them or not.

Thanks for the the reply.

So you suspect Australia is not a separate market? Okay.

Too bad about not being able to select makes at Setup.

And what's with the price details? Unless I am doing somehting worng I noticed that prices were no different under across different marketplaces.

Can that be fixed?

Thanks again

The price details are for the European market.

I wouldn't pay attention to that, that probably won't be the price you pay anyway.

First post on this forum, and was wondering if someone could help with an etka 7 problem? I'm getting a hard lock error message when trying to install etka7 on vista, no problems under Windows XP.

Thanks for any help.

What was the source of your copy of ETKA7? If it hasn't been cracked, it will need to have that done.

Pressed the wrong button rolleyes.gif

I got the software from ebay, and it's working fine under XP.

Here is the instructions I got.
Insert Etka disc 1
Locate the program files on you computer
Open the file folder and run “hardlock.exe”
When prompted re-start your computer
Re-open the program file folder
Locate the “EMU” file folder and open it
Run the “installer.exe”
Press “install & start” then “ok”
Close the installer program
Run “setup.exe” from within disc 1
Follow the on screen prompts

Thanks

Hmm.

I'd not touch anything with hardlock. You might look for the AKTEForum.TK version, it's out there, especially on eMule. Filename is ETKA.7.0.-11.2006.rar, I believe.

Also, please only use the "report post to moderator" function if there's a bad post.

How did I get here? huh.gif

Anyhoo, is there any way to plug a part number into ETKA and see how many years/makes/models that it will fit?

Specifically say 1J0 145 828 H

Thx!

Doh! I am such a tard...

SEARCHING

One very useful feature of ETKA is the ability to search for a part. ETKA7 has some critical changes in some of the search tools, so this section is going to be new to everyone.

I will begin with ATP, which is a search tool that searches for a part number that has been provided by the user, and returns all of the cars and diagrams that it is included in.

user posted image

First, make sure you are in the correct region and brand (if you're looking for Audi parts, switch the "BRAND SELECTION" to Audi.) Then, click the binoculars button. This will open the search dialog.

user posted image

Highlighted in red is the ATP tab. We do not want to use the part number tab, as it isn't useful for our purposes - only those of the dealer. Click on the ATP tab. If you are using ATP from within a car's pages (other search options that are available from a car's pages will be covered later), make sure that All Models is selected, unless you know that the part in question belongs to that car, in which case it will DIRECTLY go to where the part is when you search. Those who have experience with ETKA6 will notice that it is NOT possible to search across both Volkswagen Audi models in one search, unlike ETKA6. Also, it is not possible to search across regions. You must manually select the brand and region.

In this case, I will use the oil filter that I used in the previous example, part number 074 115 562.

Enter the part number WITHOUT SPACES, DASHES, OR ANYTHING ELSE TO SEPARATE IT, and then click search.

user posted image

You will be presented with a list of models that use this oil filter. In this case, I will select a 1999-2001 Golf built in Germany by double-clicking.

user posted image

As you can see, a green arrow is pointing towards the part, in addition to it being highlighted - it goes directly to the part, where it's placed. This feature can come in very handy if you end up with a part, but don't know where it goes.

Unfortunately, for those used to ETKA6, going back into ATP does not restore the search results. However, if you use the menu button instead of the binoculars button, then go to Search and then ATP, it will be preloaded with the part number, and you can change the setting to All Models, and click Search.

Also, a very useful new feature is that you can right-click on a part, and then click ATP. ATP will be preloaded with the part number.

Now that we're in a car's pages, we can search by part name. Let's search for a headlight. First, click on the binoculars button, then click on the Name tab (which is now available.)

user posted image

I have searched for the headlight, and it came up with four subgroups. One notable difference between ETKA6 and ETKA7 is that ETKA6 showed the main and subgroup numbers in the search results. One experienced with ETKA6 could tell whether the item was in the right main group at a glance. Unfortunately, this feature doesn't exist any more.

Double-click on the desired subgroup, in this case "halogen twin headlamp with halogen fog lamp". The parts that ETKA feels are the best matches are highlighted.

It may take multiple searches to find what you need - be creative with the wording.
