Sooooooooo... What am I missing here?
It appears in my case having a Firefox browser window open was mucking things up. I did a reboot and tried it again with Firefox closed and now I'm happily running ZE08.3!
Had you tried previously rebooting and have it fail with FF open? I don't doubt you, but that's really random. I can't imagine anything that FF would normally do that would interfere with Odin. Unless you have some pretty wild add-ons installed?
