    Question PS3 PUP Unpacker & Decrypter v2.2 - help please!

    Dear all,

    While this may be a novice query, I'd greatly appreciate some help in understanding this application: PS3 PUP Unpacker & Decrypter v2.2; linked at the bottom of this post.

    I'm trying to extract a .dat file from a PS3 game backup archive, but in doing so, I get the following error: No such file or Directory -- and when I do get the folder to be recognized, it tells me that it doesn't know the command.

    The explanation doesn't go into detail on the actual download page for this application, so I'd be grateful for anyone's contributions for knowledge of how this program works.

    Many thanks!

    Why don't you put the EXE in the bin folder?

  4. #14
    Hi Foo - upon launching the application by itself from the bin folder, it opens and closes right back up again immediately.

    The same scenario for launching it with Cygwin. I just noticed you have Skype, may I add you? It'd really help me out to talk about it in real-time!

    Best regards,

    Should be Windows, although depending on what OS version you are running (x32, x64, etc) it may not work on them all. If I read anything about which are compatible with it I will update the main article with the details. Has anyone else got it to run successfully?

    This mean we can get a fix for Resident Evil 6? That's all that matters now...
