    You have insufficient posts to view location.
    No unsigned 32bit driver works on a 64bit system. You also only have a 50/50 chance of working on the 32bit version.

    I was never able to get the drivers to install correctly on my Vista 32-bit laptop. Refused to work correctly. As a workaround, I tried installing if2a, which has limited support for the F2AU. The installation went fine, but as soon as I tried to actually connect to the cart, I got a blue screen of death. Tried it again, same thing, so I uninstalled everything.

    It looks like you'll have to find an XP computer to flash your F2AU with. No other way around it, sorry to say.
