    You may need the 1.0.1 update as well, you can try it, although I haven't needed it.

    Does iTunes need to be loaded into the system before you then close it as the 101 guide states. I am asking because I use a software "xp tools" that disables itunes from loading, i didnt like the idea of starting it wirh windows.

    If not where can i find that update file that i might need as aell?

    dont have another computer, but im planning to do a clean install later today. do you recommend installing itunes on the clean install and then try the 101 steps, or just try the 101 right after the clean install to rule out any other errors.

    let me know

    pf,

    thanks for your help. fixed it now, the problem was that i had itunes and all its software disabled from startup. just ddnt like it load automatcally.

    performed a clean win install, installed itunes right away, closed itunes.exe while i let ituneshelper.exe open. performed the 101 guide without problems.


    now the modding starts, thanks again :>
