Here's a crash course on FTP access:

1. Receive the FTP account information from Reno4x4.com Administrator.
server name: reno4x4.com
username: [your_Reno4x4_username]@reno4x4.com
password: **********

2. Download and install an FTP client.
(SmartFTP http://www.smartftp.com or Transmit http://www.panic.com/transmit/ )

3. Enter the above information to connect.

4. Upload files to your web space.

5. Share the link with your friends - http://[your_Reno4x4_username].reno4x4.com/ !

this process is manual. why don't everyone who wants their access PM me with desired password, cause there is no way for you to set it.

You need to reinstall the Windows installer(instmsi.exe) here is the best way that i know how to install it, im coping it off another website cause it just wasent working for me to type it out..... but first go to http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...70-b259-4733-a914-a956122e08e8&DisplayLang=en and download the Installer.....

Forcing a reinstall of windows installer has worked in every case for me. Here's
the step by step:

1. Download the lastest windows installer (Instmsi.exe) and place in a temp directory
such as c:\temp.

2. From a command prompt, run the installer with the /c switch
(ex: c:\temp\Instmsi.exe /c)

3. A dialog will be displayed asking for a destination to extract the files to.
Select your temp directory again (c:\temp)

4. In that temp directory, run the Instmsi.msi file.

5. Also in that temp directory, right-click on the Msi.inf file, and select 'Install'
from the context menu.

6. You should be prompted to reboot your computer. Installation is complete.

Hope this helps as it fixed the problem when i was having it :)
