First create a new folder in drive C. (C:/nissan)
Make CD a sub folder in C:/nissan (C:/nissan/CD)
create sub folders in C:/CD/nissan A1,A2,A3,B1,B2....(make what folders you are going to use)
and so on...
Unrar the files in the bit torrent to the corresponding files you just made.
eg A1.rar is extracted to C:/nissan/CD/A1
and so on...
Once you have done that go to C:\NISSAN\CD\A1\FASTPRG\WIN32\SINKI\ and run SETUP32.EXE...
Click next, next, next... This installs the actual FAST software to C:\NISSAN and creates the necessary start menu structure...
Go to C:\NISSAN\CD\A1\FASTPRG\WIN\GR\ and copy the NSFASTKY.INI file to your C:\WINDOWS\ directory... Then go to your C:\WINDOWS\ directory and find the NSFASTKY.INI file and change its attributes (right click, properties) to NOT read-only...
Go to START - PROGRAMS - fast for windows - fast for windows - fast set up
This box should appear
Click the CD-ROM setup box.
Here's an example: If I you were to use A1,A2,A3,B1 and B2 files you would select 5 drives and browse for each file.
It should end up looking like this:
Click OK to return to the main setup screen...
Next click the Font button and choose MS Gothic as the font type and Japanese as the script type... Hit OK to return to the main setup screen... (I do not have MS gothic and japanese script type on my computer but you might have)
Hit OK to exit the setup program and to save the configuration
Nissan FAST should now work, start Nissan FAST by going to Start - Programs - FAST for Windows - FAST for Windows
I dont have alot of space on drive C so the CD files are located somewhere else.( I had already installed nissan fast)
In this example I used drive E for the storage.
I made a folder in drive E... E:/nissan
I made sub folders JP, GR, EL.
In the JP folder, I unrared A1,A2,A3,B1 and B2 (these are japanese files)
The GR folder has the GR and GL files unrared (US files)
The EL folder has EL1, EL2 and ER files (euro files)
Went to START - PROGRAMS - fast for windows - fast for windows - fast set up and changed the CD-ROm setup to this:
Click OK and OK to finish the setup.
Start the program and this came up:
JP= jap cars
Click on one of the boxes, this will start the program.
PS: this is one way of setting up the files, there are many ways to do it.
There are so many ways to use this program, this is just a basic run down how it works.
*Im using only the USA(GR and GL) files in the following example:
Click on the CD icon as shown below:
This box will appear:
Select the model u wish to look at.(200sx S14 in this case, yes i know you guys in the us call it a 240sx but its the same thing really)
It should look like this:
Note: the 3 icons circled is the buttons you need to use.
If you wonder around , you will come across pages like this:
If you have a skyline and wish to find out what your 32 was optioned with eg VIN no= HCR32 010814(skylines are only in files B1 and B2). If you type the number in and hit ok, it will come up like this:
I've marked what description is whatin the pic above, I cannot get the jiberish sorted, maybe someone can find a way....(only happens with the japanese files) the US and EUro files are fine.

There is so much more in the program that I'm yet to explore.
-----------*A word of warning*-------------
The bit torrent is 1.5 gig, trying to download the file using dial up is a long task.
If you wish to decode your VIN and/or trying to find what options it had when it left the factory, plz post(or pm me) ur VIN number, model and type of nissan and make sure u state if its a grey import if its in the US or europe.
