    I searched and I can't find any clear explanation on how exactly this should be set up. I'm using Windows XP and have the following in a folder called "Partition":

    test.iso
    extractpartition.exe
    extractpartition.bat
    libeay32.dll
    MakeKey.Bin.exe
    root-key
    key.bin

    (the key.bin was created using the MakeKey.bin.exe, I also tried by copying the key.bin from my working Trucha Signer folder)

    When I drag the test.iso into extractpartition.bat I get a message saying "common-key not found".

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You need to find it yourself.
    We cannot help you.

    Get the GUI version. Just google (wii iso patcher gui). Download and all files are there and easy to use

    Ok, so the common-key and key.bin are two entirely different things then?

    i believe there are two versions of the key.bin, one works and one doesn't...

    try renaming the key.bin you have now to common-key.bin and see if that works

    He created it by using MakeKey, so it's can be used as root-key, not a common-key

    Ok, did some quick testing. I DLed Wii ISO Patcher GUI and that seems to work, except with the ISO that I'm trying (Guitar Hero World Tour) tested it with different ISO and it worked great. I read on here somewhere that people got GHWT to work using extractpartition the way I originally tried. So I copied the "common-key" from Wii ISO Patcher GUI that seemed to work fine and put it in that folder, but still getting the same error message. (common-key not found)

    Not going to ask "where to find it", but would just like to know if it's the same key you need to use with Trucha Signer, because I have that up and running just fine. Also the "common-key" that is in the GUI folder has no file extension, should it be .bin or as is?

    it shouldn't have a file extension(mine doesn't at least)... what's the size of the "key.bin"? it should be 16kb

    Do you mean 16 bytes? It's 16 bytes and I can confirm that it's the same key that I use for Trucha Signer. I opened both with a Hex Editor to see and their the same except that in my Trucha folder the file is called "key.bin" and in my partition folder the file is called "common-key" with no file extension. So now this is what I have in the root of the folder:

    ghwt.iso
    extractpartition.bat
    extractpartition.exe
    libeay32.dll
    MakeKeyBin.exe (didn't use it this time)
    root-key (no file extension)
    common-key (no file extension)

    And still getting "common-key not found". Is everything supposed to be in the same folder?

    open a dos box, cd to the right directory and run:
    extractpartition.exe ghwt.iso ghwt-extracted.iso

    That should work

    I tried that and got a bunch of stuff with "Decrypting partition..." and numbers just flying by, so I think this is going to work. Thanks to everyone for the help and patience! I'll post back after it's all done with my results.
