    did you use the guide here?

    Whats the error? did you check that against the errors against the rooting FAQ?

    You have to run it as an administrator. Right click > run as administrator. Then it should open.

    Plaese use the unrevoked guide in the "all about rooting" sticky thread. I put it together and its straight forward and will help you a lot.

    Not 1.06

    That's a driver issue. If you have the drivers for HTC sync and hboot, uninstall them then install them as per the guide

    As said many times, use our guides. Firmware too new usually means the latest unrevoked is not compatible with your phone. You should use 3.21 instead
