    Using ESET Smart Security 5.0.94.0 under Windows 7 Professional SP1, I tried to create a rescue disk using the option under Tools. ESET says "Windows AIK is not installed or is corrupt. Please install AIK build 6001 or newer and run the ESET SysRescue Wizard again." When I clicked on the link in the message box, it takes me to http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=9085 but that appears to be for Vista and Server 2008, and does not list Windows 7 as a supported operating system. Is that the version I should install, or is ESET just directing me to the wrong page?

    Thanks

    zfactor, thanks for your response. I know there is and AIK for Windows 7, so I guess you're answering the question I had as "Yes, ESET directs you do the wrong web page."?

    Sorry for the confusion. The current Knowledgebase article links to both Microsoft pages:

    Is the second link "here" incorrect or is the format of the sentence confusing for Windows 7 users?

    Thank you
