I have run into a problem with the wbfs manager and windows vista. On one of my computers with xp, it works great, and it reads the drive and everything works, but when I go on my other computer with windows vista, it gives this error when I try and load it up.

Error occurred while loading drive. Make sure the drive is not in use or open and that it has been formatted to WBFS format.

I have formatted it and it has a lot of games on it already, so why is it not reading it? Is there some issue with vista?

hope you can help me out mates, I can't figure this one out

thanks for the help, really was run as administrator.

FenirWolf, I don't see any compatibility tab, any further directions mate?

nevermind, i figured it out.

the problem is, when the program installs, it puts a shortcut on your desktop.

that shortcut doesn't allow you to run as adminstrator, you have to go to your program files and right click that specific file.

the one on your desktop doesn't work, not until you configure it in the program files

just glad i figured it out, thanks again mates!

Guys, make sure you've downloaded WBFS Manager 3.0. It has a fix which automatically prompts you for Admin mode if you have UAC on.
