I'm having a bit of a weird issue. I just downloaded build 3402 of Dolphin, figured I would try giving it a shot. I'm a little new to Wii emulation, but I searched around, without luck, to see if I could find a solution.

I've got the emulator configured to my liking, and no matter what I do I cannot seem to launch a single piece of software, whether it's a full on Wii game like Super Smash Bros. or Klonoa, or any pieces of homebrew. The black render box pops up, and it says it's loading the software, but nothing seems to be happening at all. No activity at all, yet Dolphin seems to be using a large chunk of CPU.

Anybody else run into this issue? Or am I just a simple newbie to this whole thing? :p

That doesn't really help me too much. I've tried this numerous times, deleting the directory and re-extracting the download, no dice.

I also tried not touching any of the settings, simply trying to load a game. No go on that either, same thing's happening.

I reviewed the stickies, and as for hardware requirements, my PC blows them out of the water (bit of a big gamer here).

I managed to fix it, but what's causing the problem is something I still don't know. After digging through log files, testing a number of things (including taking a look at the Wii OS, unencrypted), and then deleting said things, it seemed to have launched. Every build I've used, something about the /user/wii folder it doesn't like.

From the build I stated earlier, after an initial extraction, I went into the /user/wii folder and deleted the contents, then launched the emulator for the first time since the extraction. Works like a charm, and I have no idea how or why the problem was occuring.

Just to make sure, I tried it on a couple other machines. Again, same issue until I deleted the contents of the /user/wii folder. Weird.

Initially I had overwritten it. However, with the current method, keeping the Wii OS out of the picture, I simply deleted it. The emulator seemed to run fine without it, as compared to before when it simply would not load a game for me.

I'm using Windows 7. Been running in non-admin mode, folder located on the desktop.
