I bought a car service manual on Fleabay, I downloaded it but it got stuck at 99% when I tried to open it? I've had a look on the net for a solution but they seem too complicated for me? (DropBox & winedvm) I've also asked the seller how I can open it, that was this morning but I haven't had a reply, yet? Any ideas I could try?

My only guess would be 32 bit virtual machine. A 16 bit or 32 bit virtual machine would be the only way to support anything 16 bit.

Usually manuals are PDF documents, only need something like the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to use them. But the mention of .exe format suggests it may be a self-decompressing file, will be much harder to work with as the 64-bit version of Win10 doesn't really work with 16-bit apps, as suggested may need a 32-bit OS. WinXP could do it or maybe Win7.
