    I had the same problem, this is from shaffer on another forum.

    Okay, myself like all of you who are trying to use jl_cmder and vista 64 bit may run into issues with CHOICE.EXE saying something about 16bit no supported and what not.

    I have a 32bit version (which works with a 64 bit OS) which i will attach for all of you. Simply delete the 16bit version out of the directory and replace it with the 32 bit found on this thread, run jl_cmder and voila! No error.

    I have confirmed this works, as I just did it successfully on mine. Do not run jl_cmder as admin, set compatibility to xp sp2 and it should work.

    Here is the new version: RapidShare: Easy Filehosting

    HOW TO:

    1. Download jl_cmder from JL_Cmder Javaloader Utility Non Installer
    2. Extract contents
    3. Download MY version
    4. Replace CHOICE with the my version of the file.
    5. Right click JL_Cmder.cmd and choose properties
    6. Click compatibility tab and check Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 2)
    7. Click OK
    8. Run JL_Cmder.cmd

    Striker951, I have 32 also, and this was the only way I got it to work. I didn't have to do 6-8 though.

    Vic, My appologies, they must have updated JL_Cmder Javaloader Utility, because step 4 doesn't work. All I did was delete the original choice file, then replaced it with the other one you downloaded. You do not have to rename anything. And because they are 2 different extensions, you can't overwrite. Just delete and replace and your good to go. Beiing x64, you need to also do steps 6-8. Let me know how it goes.

    When I first started modding my BB, I tried to use jl_cmdr to wipe, but because of vista, I could never get it to work. Ended up using Crackmen to do it. You might want to give that a try in addition to jl_cmdr. It has a more friendly interface.
    Here is a pic of the crackmem screen
