    Shrink an OS Help



    Hello everyone:

    I am having some issues with Shrink an OS. Everytime I try to run it it give me an "unhandled exception error" I hit continue and it says it is shrinking and it seems to be doing something but it just "spins" as if it shrinking but does that for a VERY LONG time. I am guessing it isn't really shrinking just locking up.

    My sad little memory is running at 11% :eek1:

    Any suggestions from my merry band of geniuses? :feedback:

    Make sure you are doing the following

    Extracting Shrink .exe to your desktop
    If you are on Vista right click icon and choose run as admin
    Make sure you have net framework .exe installed on your PC (you can get it from Microsoft update page)

    Give those a shot and let us know

    Run windows update and check optional updates to see if shows net framework and you did need to drag the shrink .exe to your desktop then right click on it and choose run as admin
