Thanks for the advice. I have tried installing these, then rebooting then retrying the program with the same results. I have also tried this setup in windows xp mode on 7 and still crashes. Anybody else got any advice?
Maximus has just released a fixed version of the HID 2.0 which fixes an important bug: maxavrusb.blogspot.com/2010/11/any-hex-bug-fix.html
I Succesfully spotted the bug causing the backups not loading after importing it with the new HID Loader 2.0, its due to the nature of the hermes/kakaroto differences. The problem is easily fixed if you replace the files located under "generic" folder, with the ones in this FILE.
Also if you want to re-download the full solution now fixed you can do it HERE. All those having problems with yesterday release, Please post me results on the comments to see if everything ok now.
