    Update (May 3): I've updated the jailbreak tool. It no longer deletes photos (sorry!) and should resolve the issue with error code c0000005. (If you still get that error with the new version, try setting compatibility mode to Windows 95.)

    Spirit

    Was you phone jailbroken before? If so you need to restore it to stock 3.1.3 on iTunes first, not just update it. Once this is done just run spirit in win 98.

    Dont forget to back it up in iTunes first before restoring.

    Hope this helps

    Well, I did find this link regarding it but seems like you've already tried it.

    Everything else I have read about it seems to be virus related.

    What do you mean virus related? I did try it again and still got the same DL.exe failed. I don't undersand why though. I changed the compatibility to both 95 and 98 and neither work. I'm getting frustrated. Should I try on a diferent computer?

    I just tried to do it on another computer and the DL.exe still wasn't working but it gave me a different error code c000036

    Make sure that you disable your antivirus and firewall programs. I use Norton 2010 and it detected it as a virus and gave me errors. When I disabled both, spirit worked just fine.

    Still having issues. Any other suggestions?? Does it matter that I am on Vista. Should I try on a computer that has Windows 7 on it?

    Sorry, what I meant was everything I researched on the issue you were having seemed to state that DL.exe was a virus...

    I don't think the Win Vista/Win 7 thing should matter, I have read on the board that people aren't having any problems with Spirit on Vista..hope you find your solution

    Should I delete the spirit I have shut off all my antivirus and firewalls then download again and try to install?
