    Works brilliantly, just want to add a few things

    You NEED to run the .bat as admin in order for it to work
    I'm guessing on 32 bit systems use install.x86.bat

    As for linux there's "gnome-nds-thumbnailer".
    Windows has already Evotools which works superp and also adds save file image, cheat editor and trimmer. There was also one thumbnailer that worked on 64bit windows (can't find the link [​IMG] ) but it had serious problems with releasing files after it made thumbnail and thus making trimming and ejecting card impossible.

    Will try if this works correctly.
    You should try making some installer which will copy the files on computer and also copies uninstaller on Program files etc. which shows on Windows program uninstaller. There are many installer softwares (installshield wizard is one that comes in mind) and makes peoples life much easier than first copying files and then keeping uninstaller file in somewhere [​IMG]

    EDIT: Works perfectly and fast under Windows 7 Ultimate 64x! [​IMG]
    Default icon size I been using makes icons pixelated but that was expected becouse it's some 4Xpx.
