    can some one help me with this one?

    I have tried fixes and reinstalling it, my copy was working before a win7 update.

    it works on the down stairs computer win10, but I had all my stuff on the win7....

    I can't recall if wii u usb helper has any dependencies (might want to look at the documentation or a release thread for that), but have you tried running it as administrator?

    I'm not sure if the guy who made it is even answering questions regarding that app anymore. I assume that it says what is required in the release thread.

    btw, I figured out how to backup wii u usb helper. you need to backup the usb_helper folder in either local or roaming and the hikari06 folder in the same location. one is in local; the other is in roaming. :D you have to backup both or you'll get the error that the app has been discontinued. ;) I just looked it up: hikari06 is in the local folder while usb_helper is in the roaming folder. :P

    I brought a license just before it got taken down, it is a dam shame because look at me now. Yeah on the wii u usb helper GBATEMP page the comments have been stopped on page 198 or something....

    I have got my helper working on my win10, but not enough space to put all my downloads from this pc onto it....

    I need that NAS RAID or a home server money, money, money(BIG money)= lots of storage!

    @godreborn I will keep the back up in mind(the back up) then I know what I have done on this laptop - with that copied over to the other pc will be where I left off.
