    Okay, that may be my fault. I think you are getting a Windows error message. Can anyone else download this file and tell me they are getting an error? I think I may have zipped the file wrong.

    The file works. He should use /Wii Brew SD.exe, not /__MACOSX/.Wii Brew SD.exe

    Nice program, this'll make setting up homebrew a lot easier for me mates. Quick question: Do you need to have a Zelda save file on the SD card before running the program?

    No, the program can install the zelda save file on your sd card if you want.

    Does this mean it installs the twilight hack without running Zelda on the Wii? And then homebrew can be installed?

    I think it just puts all the necessary files in the right places on your sd card so after you install the twilight hack everything is already set up.

    Exactly. You still need to copy the save file from the SD card to your wii and run the zelda hack. It'll start the homebrew channel installer and then you can use homebrew directly on it without using the zelda hack.

    Exactly. Just tried it and it worked perfectly. Just run the Twilight Hack and you're gold.

    EDIT: got beaten to again D:

    This program only copy the zelda save file, the homebrew channel installer and some apps for HBC on your SD card. When you run the zelda hack it'll load sd_card:\boot.dol

    It installs it for you already on the SD card along with the Homebrew Manager.
