    I just bought a DSi secondhand and installed Unlaunch via the Memory Pit method. I've been following the https://dsi.cfw.guide tutorial without issue, up to the point of installing HiyaCFW.

    I backed up my NAND with FWTools, and the HiyaCFW Helper detects it without issue, but after I start the install process, I get this error (Picture attached).

    HiyaCFW Error.

    I've tried backing up my NAND again, to the same error. I've ensured my target SD Card is formatted FAT32, I've also ensured I'm opening HiyaCFW Helper as an administrator, so I can't quite figure out what the problem could be.

    Thanks in advance!

    HiyaCFW-Helper requires at least 7-zip 19.00 to be installed on a Windows computer.
    Without 7-zip or with older versions you get this error.

    See readme.md

    Oooh, I wasn't running the newest version of 7-Zip. After updating to version 19.00, it worked flawlessly. Thank you very much!
