How to use the KTM 790 Repair Manual on macOS 10.15 and later

This is the KTM 790 Adventure Repair/Service Manual. It comes on a DVD and contains an application in both Windows and Mac formats to access the data. You can print the contents to a PDF. However, the PDF is not searchable. updated: I found instructions on telling how to create a searchable PDF using a newer version (v9.12.0) of Flux Player. See this post

The DVD has some kind of copy protection. The program will not let you access the data if copied to a hard disk. This is a minor pain for those who run systems that do not have a built in DVD reader and don’t need one often enough to keep an outboard reader connected on a regular basis.

There is one other issue for those running the current version of macOS – Version 10.15 Catalina: is a 32-bit app and will not run. Here is the workaround to bypass

The repair manual app will start. Select your language and bike (standard or R).

I haven’t tried this, yet, but I suspect that if you copy to your Applications folder you’ll be able to skip the “choose an application” steps.
