    OK, let's start this one here.
    Here's how it works. I'll start it by sending out 3 copies to members here, but in repayment, they MUST
    send out 3 copies.
    To get a copy, make a post here, saying that you want one, then send me your mailing address in a p.m..
    It is that simple.
    To load the program, just follow the instructions after installing the disc.

    For some backround:
    The Mediacat was Stihl's parts lookup software for years, but they expired every year, so the dealers were sent the updated version every year. Back in 2007, Lakeside sent me a copy that had the expiration feature removed, so I
    started it in the chain letter thread. Computer savvy members have contributed updated versions up until 2012, and
    then Stihl came out with a hackproof version, so this copy that I am starting this thread with is the 2012 version.
    It comes with many Stihl catalogs, all of the parts lists, and the mechanic's manuals for the more recent models. Also has a great "item search" feature, which you can enter a part number, and it will tell you where {what models} is used, etc.

    The "downside" is that it won't let you easily move files to e-mail, etc. You have to use a program like "snagit".
    Or print the pages and scan them, or the like .

    I think Young gave me a copy on CD several years ago, let me see if I still have it before I claim one.

    This is a very nice program to have, with tons of info! I got a copy and sent out 3 a couple years ago of the 2011 version.

    If the 2012 version has more/updated info I'd be more than happy to get one and send some out. For the cost of sending a CD in the mail, its a great deal!

    Ok, I've got Gunn and Warped5 in the works. I'll have to buy some blank discs in the morning.

    With the use of (for example) pdf creator (availible as freeware on the net) parts lists can be easily printed directly into pdf files. It is a virtual printer that you can find after the installation in the printer menu. All other existing pdf files can be easily safed directly with the save button. So it`s easy to attach a printed file to an e-mail.

    How does this work ? Get a disk in the mail and for return you burn 3 more copies for the next 3 guys and send them out ?

    I was back in VA over Memorial Day and ran with the group that does the Moormans/AT/Rip Rap/Wildcat Ridge/Turks Gap run. I didn't make it to your trail section as I ran with a fellow who had a stroke 3 months ago. His doctor is limiting his running, so we went from Sugar Hollow to Blackrock and back.

    I started this a long time ago, the one that sends out the copies pays for the shipping, so it could not be said that I
    was in any way "selling" the disc, for legal reasons.
    I would hate to add up how much money that I have thrown into it over the years.
