Downloaded the 4.0 version twice from their website, but it won;t work.
I installed it and when i want to open it up with the icon it gives me an error..
What could be wrong, anyone knows a working version?

go back to Craxtions website... there are [b]pathces[/b] REQUIRED to run the application correctly. you also need to install .NET FRAMEWORK they also have a forum dedicated to installation problems.

I have never been able to get it to run on XP, but you may have a better chance then I did. The older version of craxtion works just as well, as near as I can tell, the gui is the only update. As far as multi-game discs, there are other programs that do the same thing just as well.


now this is how an informed response should be given, not just "USE BETTER MEDIA" .... that's just a comp out answer which is uninformed and is as usless as your craxtion 4 program is to you now. btw, I'm only rude to those who genuinely deserve it. You should've been around when I was a mod...you really wouldn't have liked me then.

Yeah thanks, i realised too late to go the craxtion forum.
But i don't really want to instal any shady net aplications..i think i stay with the old version then.
Or does 4.0 have the latest patches in it..to patch the iso's..

In short, no there are no "latest patches" like in the PS2 scene, all xbe's are patched basically the same i.e. haibibi,media flag or region etc... those basic patches (simply removing checks or chaging the way the xbe is signed) are the same in both versions of craxtion. The only notciable difference is that 4 allows you to patch a larger xbe. While I fully agree that all xbe's should be run through craxtion, the iso created by craxtion is not necessay (imho), neither are the dashupdate.xbe or update.xbe.



from the craxtion site --->


========================
New Features
========================

* Complete Redesign from Bottom Up
Craxtion 4.0.0 has been re-written completely in .NET - The current standard for programming
design in the Windows Environment

* Faster routines and procedures with more capabilities than were provided in previous versions
of Craxtion which were written in Visual Basic 6.0.

* All functions and tools (ISO Extraction, Creation, etc) rewritten for optimal performance and
faster response times.

* New Parent/Child Window Design.
Now you can perform many tasks all at the same time, each task is provided with its own
Child window inside Craxtion.

* Internal File Explorer reduces the need to locate files from Windows Explorer!

* FTP Capability
Craxtion now has the capability to communicate with your XBOX console when connected to a network!

No need to use a separate FTP Program. You can drag and drop files between your computer and your
XBOX all from inside Craxtion!

With this new capability comes features such as:

- File transfer to/from your XBOX console
- Information Retrieval from your XBOX console
- Numerous new features and tools involving transfer to your XBOX console.


* XDVDFS Creator
Our very own ISO Creator built into Craxtion to reduce dependency on external ISO Creators. Our ISO
Creator has been coded for exception creation time, as fast if not faster than any other ISO Creators
currently available with all the same reliability!

* Additional Tools
We've taken Craxtion beyond ISO Creation/Extraction and Multigame Capability. With added tools such
as Game Save Managers and XBOX Restore Utilities so you wont need 10 programs to manage all your XBOX
Needs - We've got all the bases covered with Craxtion 4!

install a specific dash to take advantage of all of Craxtion's features!

on Size that would produce occasional errors. All limitations have been lifted for error free Extraction!

** Extraction to the XBOX!
No need to Extract then FTP, You can extract your ISOs "on-the-fly" directly to your console via

ISO Structure, our ISO Explorer will open any *VALID XDVDFS ISO to allow you to view the contents of your
ISO file without having to extract it!

- Search for Files!
