    I can't since the link contains copyrighted material. Just Google "wii u usb helper" and it's the first result.

    Why do people still ask why something is discontinued? Let's see...for the same reason you can't draw the mouse, make copies of your VHS movies, or stream movies before they reach the theater. Because it is the same as breaking into someone's car, mugging defenseless woman, and threatening someone menacingly with a crowbar. If you cross the big N you'll be swimming with the fishes!

    The reddit 'fix' shows up as a Trojan:Win32/Bluteal.B!rfn.

    I wouldn't use it unless they make their new launcher open source and I can compile it myself.

    Ah, that's good to know. Did you just have to copy the appdata from Users or what?

    If you google "wii usb helper not working workaround" then it is the top hit - it is a reddit thread. There are two workarounds in the thread

    Has anyone been able to get the fix to work?

    Running the USBHelperLauncher.exe fails and running it from the updater.exe results in no new titles/updates being shown.

    I'm most interested in getting new updates.

    Getting it running isn't the problem. It isn't showing new games or updates for me.

    Wow, what? I was not aware this happened.

    Luckily mine still works and I had the idea to start downloading everything available on the eShop to prepare for the day when Nintendo shuts down the Wii U servers. Not done yet, but just about half finished.

    Not sure yet, was busy and haven't gotten around to finishing the downloading. So far as exceeded 750GBs, I think it will max out at around 1.5TB or so.

    Specifically, I am downloading the entire contents of the NTSC WiiU eShop. Games, apps, updates.
