Details on Win7 64 bit new install method & new JTIS21 XJ series archive
The Details on Win7 64 bit new install method & new JTIS21 XJ series archive are listed here in this thread.
Now here are the details:
There is now a new install PDF file “Installing DA350.dll in Win7 64 bit ver 1.1” PDF file.
This file has step by step instructions and screenshots.
There are really only 4 steps in getting the software installed using this method:
Run Microsoft Help software file - 32 bit for 64 bit OS - Windows6.1-KB91760 - - this prepares the PC to handle 32 bit help files (using "run as administrator" option)
Put the DAO350.dll file into the correct folder, then register the DAO350.dll (using “run as administrator” option)
Run XP-Fix file – that is included in the Special Edited version archives or can be downloaded separately (using “run as administrator” option)
Run the setup.exe file in the JTIS21 folder to install the JTIS21 software (using “run as administrator” option)
I am repeating the same information here in this thread (and also in the other appropriate Jaguar model sections).
Well – Here is the initial information:
We finally have a way to install the JTIS21 Jaguar Shop manual on all the Win7 64 bit computers without having to install vitual machines or xp mode.
This is how it was accomplished:
By Plums furnishing the right technical information and advice on how to get it working properly
By yours truly finding the required files and putting them in proper locations (later doing the 1st successful install on my Win7 64 bit pro laptop) then writing the instructions and inserting the screen shots that are now in the install PDF file, also successfull install on Win7 64 bit Home premium desktop
By Translator furnishing other technical advice on improving the instructions and doing the 2nd & 3rd successful installs on other win7 64 bit computers.
UPDATE: Medifire.com problem with large split files (archives with multiple parts) - mediafire wanting download fee.
You can download the files from dropbox.com - see post# 19 in this thread for the download links to dropbox.com JTIS archive files.
I created separate Special Edited versions of the JTIS21 by Jaguar model series as shown in the screenshot above.
Folder “JTIS 21” has the four folders listed below it. Also has the Win7 64 bit JTIS21 install instructions PDF file (Installing DA350.dll in Win7 64 bit ver 1.1); the JTIS21 instructions and illustrations PDF file; and the Mediafire download & Extract instructions PDF file.
Folder “JTIS21 All Parts” has the entire JTIS21 archive – the 3 self extract archive files total 481 megs – also the technical guides archive and
the CD disk label image file.
The Special Edited JTIS21 archives by model series have the Win 64 bit Install PDF file and the 64 bit files included in them.
Folder “S Type JTIS” is a special edited JTIS archive – it has 2 self extract archive files that total 277 megs – only has the Jaguar S Type model shop repair information (The X type, XJ series and XK series have been removed).
Folder “X Type JTIS” also is SE JTIS archive with 2 files self extracting in the archive (311 megs) - only X Type is included, other models have been removed. Update Note - I updated this archive (now includes the xpfix.exe as of 10:00am EST 1/6/12). If you are missing the xpfix.exe file, you can download xpfix.exe using the link below for my account on mediafire.com
Folder “XJ Series JTIS” same type of SE JTIS archive – 2 files (344 megs) only XJ models Series. Update Note - I updated this archive (now includes the xpfix.exe as of 10:00am EST 1/6/12). If you are missing the xpfix.exe file, you can download xpfix.exe using the link below for my account on mediafire.com
Folder “XK Series JTIS” same type of SE JTIS archive – 2 files (287 megs) only XK models Series
The reason these archives are still pretty large is that the graphic files in the DATA/GRAPHIC folder total 225 megs (just over 13000 files).
All these JTIS archives are also available on my personal mediafire.com account – here are the weblinks
Here are screenshots showing the JTIS21 XJ Special Edited version:
First Screen that opens
Next Screen after Service selection (XJ Range and Model year 2001 selected) Normal screen with a picture of the Car and the graphical choices (General Information, Powertrain, etc)
Here is the Screen after using view menu and the Text Navigator option. It shows listing index with the Body and Paint – sub categories listed.
The top menu bar – DTC Summaries, Maintenace Schedules – all work properly and it will let you view all the Jaguar model series and model years that are in the normal full JTIS21. The Electrical Diagrams for the other model series have been removed to reduce the size of the download archives and save the disk space on your PC.
Here is what happens if you try to use Service selection for anything other than XJ Range (in this case S-Type)
I am sure there will be questions and I will be the point person for all the support issues
Sorry - this post is so lengthy

I just noticed that the xpfix.exe file is not in the JTIS21 XJ archive, also it is not in the JTIS21 X-Type archive.
you can download it using the link below for my account on mediafire.com, I will be fixing the archive to include it as soon as possible.
Thank you Jim and everyone who worked on this. I still have an old computer hooked up just to access JTIS and I can finally recycle it. I am having some trouble with Media Fire insisting I give them money but I will keep working on the downloads
I appreciate all your work on this
Additional Screenshots and help with install procedures
I just posted this information in the XK & XKR 1996-2006 section.
Note: the instructions & screenshots in XK sticky tread - post #9 are for the special edited versions - X Type, S Type, XJ, XK.
I will start another new thread for the all models archive - to show where the final destination location of the JTIS files and folders should be placed.
Look at post# 9 - here is the weblink to the thread:
JTIS21 all models additional info & screenshots update
I started this new post because it is important to have the JTIS21 files and folders placed in the same final destination folder location.
Note: these instructions & screenshots for the JTIS21 all models (not the special edited versions for individual model achive downloads).
This will make the install process more standardized and leads to better/easier support resolutions to any future issues that may come up.
Here is some more documentation on the install process for the JTIS21 all models (versus the documentation for the special edited versions by model).
I just posted this information in the general tech help sticky JTIS21 win7 64 bit install thread. Note: the instructions & screenshots in general tech help sticky tread - post #13 are for the all model version download achives (not for the special edited achives for the individual X Type, S Type, XJ, XK).
See the rest of these instructions in post 13 in the this other thread:

I installed mine onto a Virtual Machine within the Win 7 64 os. A quick download sorted the nested os. Search your own Help file, (click desktop, then F1) and search for Virtual PC. Top answer shows all the links you need.
Fair point - I cut my install down a good bit though, and I do have other uses for the VM as it helps shift things between Win 7 and Ubuntu. I read your instructions in more detail after your post and they're pretty solid, useful stuff.
The true measure of a Man, is what he would do if he knew he would never be caught.
Thanks for the comprehensive instructions for a Win 7 64-bit machine, extremely useful, I couldn't have managed without them. You obviously put a lot of hard work in to it, it's appreciated.
One minor issue: I have Adobe's Creative Suite on the machine, which includes as standard Acrobat Pro, not Reader. Every time I try to access a PDF from within the JTIS21 software, I just receive a message to say the Acrobat Reader is not installed. It isn't, because you can't have two versions of Acrobat on the same machine.
I can access the PDFs by navigating to the JTIS folder and viewing them from there using Pro. Any idea of a work around?
Welcome to the Jaguar Forum.
I downloaded free acrobat reader X that made the JTIS software happy. I opened acrobat reader X, then I went to Edit, Then to Preferences, then General catagory and used the select default pdf handler button. It gave a choice of acrobat reader X or Adobe Pro 9. I made Adobe Pro 9 the default.
When I am in the JTIS21 software and use the DTC Summaries option - acrobat reader X opens the PDF file.
Now when I do PDF file download from the forum it opens with Adobe Pro 9. I noticed that when used a PDF file shortcut that Gus had posted in a recent thread that it opened the PDF file in a new internet explorer tab.
I have both Adobe software packages (Adobe Pro ver 9 and Adobe Reader ver X) on my win7 64 bit PC.

I didn't realise that you could have Reader and Pro on the same system, whenever I have upgraded Creative Suite it always says that previous versions of Acrobat will be deleted. I've downloaded Reader XI, but it keeps coming up with a file not found error message, I'll do some more digging.
In case it's of any help to anyone else, I couldn't get the Acrobat Reader 11 to see the PDFs when I had downloaded the XJ specific JTIS files. I removed everything, downloaded the entire set, burnt it to DVD, now it works like a dream. A very useful resource, thanks for facilitating it Jim.
Update: Solution to your internet browers invalid link errors (getting "This link wasn't well formed") when trying open the dropbox.com using the PDF weblinks I have in this post.
Looks like I had a bad upload to the dropbox.com website (PDF file for JTIS21 install on 32 bit Windows Operating systems (Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 7, XP, and Vista)
I fixed the issue by reuploading the PDF file.
If you ever get the "This link wasn't well formed" - invalid link error, then you should look at the solution I found on the internet that is in the following PDF file: Clear DNS Cache issues.pdf
End of Update
Here is what you need to know before you download and install the JTIS21 software
First you need to determine whether your PC has a 32 bit or 64 bit Operating System.
Important step after you download the JTIS21 archive files and after you start the running the 1st archive (exe) file to extract the files in the 3 archives - make sure you put in the C:\JTIS21 as the Destination folder
