New Update

Ok, I found the problem with the VB6 version, now I just have to find time to fix it.
The VB.NET version is fairly feature and functionality complete.

The .NET version requires

The .NET version requires the .NET framework 1.1.
As for the 429 error I will have to research it further, the changes I made to the code should have eliminated that.

Even after installing .NET 1.1, I still get the following error:

After digging into the code

After digging into the code it seems I left behind some of the vb6 code in the .NET version. This will be fixed in the next release.
As for the 429 error in the vb6 version, everything I have found indicated a missing or corrupt or incorrect version of the VB runtime files. You can download the latest version from microsofts website.

Unfortunately I downloaded

Unfortunately I downloaded the latest VB6 runtime (vbrun60sp6.exe in French) and I still get the 429 error.
Now I'm waiting for your next .NET release Smile

I posted a new update, all

I posted a new update, all of the vb6 code should be gone from the .net version at this point, also rewrote most of the manifest routine.
give it a try and let me know.

It's getting better. Shorcut

It's getting better. Shorcut Creator 4U3 2.0.10 .NET version creates properly the shortcut if the shortcut name has no space.
It seems that you are not using quotes when calling 7zip command line compressor. So the compressor does not find the files and fails to create the installer.

Error 429 Again

Ok I figured out that users will also get error 429 if MSXML isn't installed on there machine.
I believe this will effect XP without SP1 or SP2 installed.
SP1 and SP2 should both have MSXML in them.
I will be adding a check to the program in the next update to prompt if it is not installed.
