(when making an entry from the below instructions where the entry item has quotation marks
before and after it disregard the quotation marks)

  • Click on the “Windows symbol
    Window Rectangle Building Tints and shades Fixture
    ” at the lower left corner of the Windows home screen and then scroll down the list to Settings and click it. Under settings click on “system”.

Then click the “X” at the top right corner of the page to exit Settings.
  • (“”IMPORTANT NOTE” After you have gone through the entirety of these procedures and were successfully at viewing your JK Service Manual CD I would recommend you go back and repeat steps 1, 2 and 3 and change your Web browser back to Microsoft Edge. Without doing this you may experience slower Web surfing!!!
  • Now insert your Mopar Tech Authority CD into your CD drive. If a message block appears on you screen asking you to “select to chose what happens with this disk” if it doesn’t disappear by itself after a few seconds then click the “X” in the block to make it disappear. Don’t click anything else.

Nice write up for your first post.
I can confirm that getting Tech Authority to run on any level of Windows running Edge vs. IE is a hassle.
Some of us have gone as far as to spin up Win 7 VMs, so this is a great writeup.
