Was hoping for a usable PDF shop manual ... instead this requires some garbage software to be installed and "activated online". Even worse, that garbage software requires administrative privileges to run ... clearly some incompetent software editor more focused on milking their license than providing a decent customer experience. Pathetic.
The manufacturer was previously required by Ford to use the registration software to verify that the pdf was not just being copied and given out. He was able to work with Ford to be able to offer a more user friendly method, that no longer requires that registration software. He has also improved the ability to search the pdf.
