    Default So redsnow a problem for me
    Okay i've posted this a couple of times on all those pitiful websites but my problem is that redsnow doesn't extract right on Vista.

    So what is the fix?
    It does that stupid file name same as folder name and i click skip or retry or ok and it just doesn't extract it right so it always fails.

    Other than that if i run it straight from the zip (dunno how i'm able to do that but it does work) I get to the second reboot and it crashes.

    So what do i do? Hopefully someone knows cause i'd really like to do this on my vista instead of a xp

    What are you using to extract? WinRar or 7-zip. I've read that 7 works better on Vista machines.
