Why can't I use the Update Downloader on Windows Vista?

Because Vista is evil --Jedicommando 20:40, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
No, no, no... ignore Jedicommando. The real reason that you can't use it on Vista is that God hates you. Flark 02:53, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Be sure to combine the files into an .exe when you release it! I HATE having to do it myself. --Jedicommando 20:40, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

No. Just compile it yourself, you Windblows user. --SquidMan 01:13, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

why would you make a windows program when you expect people to compile it with linux? why cant you just compile it yourself? you took all that time programming the thing, i would at least think youd want people to use it without going and learning how to compile programs.--Cert 07:16, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

I don't care what you compile it with. Also, I don't really care if anyone uses it, I'm not in it for the credit (although I do like it). If you think it is worth using, you should know how to compile things. Also, it is NOT a Windblows application. It is a PC application, which means Linux, Mac, or Windblows. So anyone can run it. Also, I didn't include an executable because I'm pretty sure it wouldn't work universally and don't want to deal with support. tl;dr version: Do it yourself, if you can use it, you can compile it.

Would you mind if someone else compiled it and shared the executable? Flark 02:53, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
Yes, that'd be perfectly fine. Just make sure you say that I am completely not responsible for it. =) --SquidMan 05:24, 13 December 2008 (UTC)


I cant compile this app. Not under MinGW, CygWin, Native Linux! I get following warnings/errors:

gcc -c -Wall -O2 aes.c -o aes.o
gcc -c -Wall -O2 main.c -o main.o

Version 2.1 fixes this problem. Thanks =D --SquidMan 01:13, 9 December 2008 (UTC)


Man why don't you just make a dol app and you'll make our lives easier (Previous unsigned comment was made by Rafalfaro 18)

2 reasons:
  • It can't be a DOL, it is a PC app.
  • I think anyone who wants to use this knows how to type make in a terminal window.
Kthx --SquidMan 04:25, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
it can so be a dol. i had something like this as a dol for wii, but to tell it what you wanted to get, you had to edit the source. so pointless for what this guy wants.yossi 04:51, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
Heh, well then you have to write an alternative for wget. Which in it self would probably kinda diffcult, so that would be a moot point =P --SquidMan 02:14, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

"gets Titles"?

Please to explain what a "Title" is in this context? Thanks. Fartboy 02:51, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Ummm, a title. I can't explain it without going really in depth. Look around on here, there is lots of information about titles here =P --SquidMan 04:31, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Package suggestion

On your next release I would suggest putting the files into a directory. So when you extract them they don't go into the current directory. --Sycophantic 03:21, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Oh sorry about that. Didn't mean to tarbomb everyone =P Next release will definitely have them in a directory. --SquidMan 04:31, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

2.1 does not compile

I dont know maybe i do something wrong but if i type make it results in:

gcc -c -Wall -02 aes.c -o aes.o
make: gcc: Command not found
make: *** [aes.o] Error 127

as i looked in to the folder there was no aes.o --THREE Consoles 03:36, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

It means you don't have gcc. If you are using Linux, just use a package manager to get it, if using Windblows, use Cygwin, and make sure to install gcc, and if using Mac OS X, get the XCode toolset. Have fun =) --SquidMan 07:54, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Many THX --THREE Consoles 05:33, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

OMG the downlaod only runs with bytes/s.This is impossible to download.I tryed serveral mirrors or sites and every time would be the same ........ending up in a 5-6 hours download and at the end the connection is dieing. Could some one please host the files for gcc 4.3.2 for me?

ps. and its killing my internet connection.i have to reboot my machine to use the NET without troubles --THREE Consoles 05:39, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

EDIT: OK to day i get it.Now i have to install wget and than i can compile. Next i want to learn how to whrite a dol.This will be a very hard step for me becouse im not a coder.And for things like that there will be no theacher only informations to get. --THREE Consoles 03:12, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

What's the point?

What's the point of this exactly? Won't it still download the fakesigns and stuff? Or can you edit it so it won't? Please Clarify. --Cyndaquil 01:34, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

This is for people that can't connect to the internet with their Wii, but want to install updates. You download the updates with this tool, then install the resulting WADs with a tool like WAD Installer. Too bad Squidman's hosting is messed up right now as all his files are missing... --Techokami 02:28, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
