Install ETKA8 and apply the DLL patch




The next step is to install ETKA8 and apply the DLL patch. To do this, follow these instructions:



  • Extract the ETKA8_Germany_International_2018 file to a folder on your hard drive, such as C:\ETKA.



  • Run the setup.exe file as administrator and follow the installation wizard. Choose the language and region you prefer, and accept the license agreement.



  • When the installation is complete, do not launch ETKA yet. Instead, go to the folder where you extracted the DLL-PATCH file, and copy the two DLL files (hardlock.sys and multikey.sys) to the C:\Windows\System32 folder.



  • Restart your computer to apply the patch.



Install the emulator and enter test mode




The third step is to install the emulator and enter test mode. This is necessary to bypass the hardware protection of ETKA and run it on 64-bit Windows. To do this, follow these steps:



  • Extract the ApplicationX64 file to a folder on your hard drive, such as C:\Emulator.



  • Run the install.cmd file as administrator and wait for it to finish. You should see a message saying "Emulator installed successfully".



  • Open a command prompt as administrator and type the following command: bcdedit /set testsigning on. Press Enter and wait for a confirmation message.



  • Restart your computer to enter test mode. You should see a watermark on your desktop saying "Test Mode".



Fix the desktop shortcut and launch ETKA8




The fourth step is to fix the desktop shortcut and launch ETKA8. To do this, follow these steps:



  • Right-click on the ETKA8 shortcut on your desktop and choose Properties.



  • In the Target field, change the value from C:\ETKA\PROG\ETK.EXE to C:\ETKA\PROG\ETK8.EXE.



  • In the Start in field, change the value from C:\ETKA\PROG\ to C:\ETKA\PROG\DATA\.



  • Click OK to save the changes.



  • Double-click on the ETKA8 shortcut to launch ETKA. You should see a splash screen with version 7.5.0.0.



Download and apply the update files




The fifth step is to download and apply the update files. This will update ETKA from version 7.5.0.0 to version 7.2.0.3285.FUL.(multilang). To do this, follow these steps:



  • Go to the folder where you downloaded the ETKA_Updates folder, and extract it to a folder on your hard drive, such as C:\Updates.



  • Inside the Updates folder, you will see four subfolders: AU (for Audi), SE (for Seat), SK (for Skoda), and VW (for Volkswagen). Each subfolder contains update files for each brand.



  • To apply the updates, you need to copy each update file to its corresponding folder in C:\ETKA\UPDATE\. For example, if you want to update Audi, you need to copy all the files from C:\Updates\AU\ to C:\ETKA\UPDATE\AU\. Do this for each brand you want to update.



  • After copying all the update files, run the ETKA8 shortcut again and wait for the updates to be installed. You may see some error messages during the process, but you can ignore them. When the updates are done, you should see the version number change to 7.2.0.3285.FUL.(multilang).



Upgrade to V8.1 and edit the registry to continue updates
