    But I'm rarely using Discord so if you require assistance please use the corresponding tab in the application.

    Here are a few things of interest :
    • The firmware version of your console
    • Its region
    • Capacity (8GB 32GB)
    • Whether games are stored NAND or USB
    • The model of your external hard drive (if any)
    • How its connected (Y cable, external power supply)
    • The brand and capacity of your SD card

    Hello. For almost a month I can not launch the CSS Viyu helper. An error appears after starting. It all started when my provider closed access to this program.
    There are any options for the program to bypass this ban at startup, and I could continue to use it. Or maybe there is an opportunity to download from the site?

    I smell compromised OS or some Firewall in place.... Disable ALL Anti-malware soft including firewall and give it a try.

    I can't start Breath Of the Wild through the USB Helper. Its updated and with the DLC, CEMU is also updated to the last version. I tried removing the emulator completely, but it still doesnt start. Here is the pic.

    Also, the game starts fine through CEMU, updated and with the DLC. But i wish i could start thought USB Helper.

    Try running USB Helper as admin, something like your antivirus or the installation location is preventing the application from executing the emulator.

    Can you please send me the result of the command :

    ping application.wiiuusbhelper.com ?

    I've a newbie question... I've download and installed some games on my Wii U from SD to NAND. Okay... no problem, now I would want do delete some games from the SD to free space and copy other games. Well, I select a game and click delete, but in effect it does not delete any thing and also in the section "installed in the Wii U the games it's still present".
    If I delete the games (from the SD) manually the software seems to not refresh the list of the games present (in the SD); in addition in the "Download Games" section aren't showed all the games downloaded, also if they are present in the download directory, but only the games that aren't already copied to SD.
    In other word, the software do not refresh the status of the folder at all.

    The application manages the content stored on your disk, not your sd card.
    Therefore the "delete" button only deletes games that are stored on your computer. You have to remove games in sd://install manually
    A game is automatically marked as "Installed" when it's copied to the sd. It's just a reminder of what you have installed, even if you delete the data from your computer.

    Great work with the WiiU USB Helper software!

    Its missing some "classic" Gamecube games thou and I wonder if it would be possible to push for these to be added to the program:
    Starfox Assault
    Wave Race: Blue Storm
    Wario World
    Battalion Wars
    Super Monkey Ball
    Super Monkey Ball 2
    Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader
    Ikaruga

    Have these been tested yet or is planned to be added in the future ?

    I keep on getting errors when using WUP Installer with Mario Kart 8. It keeps on saying "Error: Not a game, DLC, or Game Update". What do I do from here?

    Alright what do you get when you type

    nslookup application.wiiuusbhelper.com


    What verison of wup installer are you using?
    Did you use the copy to sd button?

    I'm sorry but the link you provided does not work and I'm not sure what channel you are talking about.
    Thanks for the suggestion, yes they will come at some point I can't exactly say when though.

    Wii U USB Helper can only download games whose title key has been dumped, which is not the case for this title.

    My reply from ny DNS:
    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name: application.wiiusbhelper.com
    Address: 198.58.122.166

    There are two solutions for you:

    1. Change your DNS, for example try the google dns 8.8.8.8.

    Google DNS returns correct IP:
    $ dig applicaton.wiiusbhelper.com @8.8.8.8

    ; <<>> DiG 9.11.0-P2 <<>> applicaton.wiiusbhelper.com @8.8.8.8
    ;; global options: +cmd
    ;; Got answer:
    ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 32688
    ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 1

    ;; OPT PSEUDOSECTION:
    ; EDNS: version: 0, flags:; udp: 512
    ;; QUESTION SECTION:
    ;applicaton.wiiusbhelper.com. IN A

    ;; ANSWER SECTION:
    applicaton.wiiusbhelper.com. 299 IN A 198.58.122.166

    ;; Query time: 197 msec
    ;; SERVER: 8.8.8.8#53(8.8.8.8)
    ;; WHEN: Sun Jan 07 13:52:57 CET 2018
    ;; MSG SIZE rcvd: 72


    2. Set an entry in hosts file in windows (works lika a "static route")
    Havent read/followed the thread entirely so not sure what Windows verion you are using but the hosts file most likely resides in this path: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts)

    Guides for editing the host file with administrative privileges: https://support.rackspace.com/how-to/modify-your-hosts-file/
    However, if application.wiiusbhelper.com changes IP then this solution will not work of course.

    Just got Wii USB Helper 0.6.1.527 to work under Wine in Gentoo Linux.

    Step one - Install prerequisites in a 32-bit Wine Prefix:

    Code:
    WINEPREFIX=~/.WiiUUSBHelper WINEARCH=win32 winetricks msxml3 dotnet45 vcrun2010
    Step two - Change Windows version:
    Code:
    WINEPREFIX=~/.WiiUUSBHelper winecfg
    change "Windows Version:" to Windows 7. click "OK"

    Step three - Run the program:
    Code:
    WINEPREFIX=~/.WiiUUSBHelper wine Updater.exe
    This app requires a 32-bit prefix to run in Wine.
    If you skip step one, it will hang at the first loading screen (Mono is missing components required).
    If you skip step two, it will hang with really stupid errors in console.

    I just spent 3.5 hours trying to figure this out. Likely, I won't be the only person wanting to do this without access to a Windows machine.

    What do you mean by "does not go"?

    Please send me a screenshot of the content of the folder named "install" on your sd, and also one with the content of the mario kart directory.

    Thanks for the guide, I'll add it to the front post for other people :)

    Turns out it was my SD Card the whole time :|

    Thanks for offering to help! Once I replaced the card everything went smoothly!
