    So I installed Windows 10 on my computer and I just find out that the "Drag and drop" of the "rom.3ds" file on the "ctrKeyGen.py" doesn't seem to work...

    Any idea for workaround?

    EDIT : Now that I think of it, maybe this thread belong to the "3DS - Flashcards & Custom Firmwares" section

    A lot of things don't work on Windows 10. I downgraded because devkit wouldn't work properly on 10. If you want you can downgrade and you can also upgrade anytime you want.

    Well, can't say I wasn't expecting post about "Windows 10 is the problem, remove windows 10".

    No I won't change my OS simply because I encountered a problem and I'm sure there's a way to convert 3ds to cia on Windows 10 system.

    So thanks but no thanks, I'll wait for a real answer.

    Re install python, even if it's already installed.

    Try at cmd prompt:
    python script.py filename_arg.3ds (or whatever)

    This is a better idea than drag n drop.

    Some of the suggestions here are absolutely ridiculous. Downgrade Windows! reinstall python! Stupid.

    Reinstalling python isn't stupid. It's fairly possible that %PATH% might have been changed and something might have gone wrong.
