How to Install Mangoose Honda V2.018 Software on Windows 7 VMware

The MINI VCI cable for Honda (also called mangoose for Honda) gives very good results for older Honda models, compared to expensive universal testers that usually do not produce conclusive results.  I failed to install software on mine Windows 7 machine, but make it work on XP Mode on Windows 7 machines using VMware.  Check tutorial below :
