Mint4Win can't cannot find upload.linuxmint.com and won't install


I've downloaded linux mint 6 x64 and extracted it with WinRar. I then start Mint4Win.exe and it allows me to select how I want to set up my install. The install bar goes 1/3 of the way and then begins to search for upload.linuxmint.com and does not find it, making it quit. Thanks for any help (or trying)!

Do you have iso image and the mint4win.exe in the same folder? If not,do so and try again.

I tried putting the iso into the extracted folder where the mint4win.exe is, and tried puting mint4win and the iso in their own folder, but neither worked. I bittorrented the ISO, if that helps.

Thumbs up

It should work now.
The files it needs to check the iso weren't setup.
I'll try to make sure this is done before the release notes are put out.
