When I try to run Windinkeditplus2 I get an error that pops up. It says:

The Dink installation folder could not be found. Please locate it...

Windinkeditplus2 is in the dink install folder, it also says if i run dink it should fix the issue, however, it does not. Any thoughts on what I need to do to run it?

What version of Dink are we using? If it's the new Dink HD would that be the problem. I can't get it to work, either.

I think I have found a solution:

If you run dink.exe as administrator, start a new game or whatever, then exit to windows.
Now try running WinDinkEdit Plus2.

This worked for me in Windows 7.

Edit: Tested and works with having WDE plus2 in a different folder as well

That's what I did. Something about bios and fooling the computer into thinking it's activated. No issues. Do it.

You should never trust a cracked version of an OS. It may function, but there's no guarantee that your system will be secure or working as intended, at all.

If you get a cracked windows, you should know at least a trustable hacker, or trustable torrent.

Pessimistic much? It works as it should completely. There's some times when it has some really obvious glitches, but it's windows. Of course it's going to have them.

Yeah! Like that one time when it....... I mean. I bought Windows. You should never crack a window. You will then have to buy a new one!

Sharing is caring, but I'd be extra cautious regarding a cracked operating system. I've used some before and they worked fine, but they're laughably vulnerable.

Strange that some are willing to use a cracked version of windows but prefer to pack their DMods in encrypted form, to at least make it difficult for other's to view or decompile their creations.

Realistically though, as a Lan/Wan tech in my day job, there are positive reasons to 'Not' use a hacked/cracked installation of an operating system. When we consider that Prism/Tempora are a reality and that accessing computer resources belonging to other people is being accomplished through social engineering practices, as well as the severely weakened security of a "rooted" mobile device, we already must become more aware of who has or may gain access to our systems.

installing a non-certified copy of an OS allows a much larger opportunity to gain access to your system, as well as any other system you have credentials to connect too, as there is no way to be completely certain that all avenues of unwanted access can be prevented by the end user, being us. Note, it does not matter if you are connecting remotely to another system using a VPN tunnel nor using even applications as secure as Citrix (for example). Simply, anyone that has credentials granting access to your system; has of can escalate access to every other resource you have access too.

I do agree that the cost an operating system is much higher than it needs to be, in fact I am miffed that we have to pay for it in the first place, but the cost of unknowingly granting access to somebody else or any foreign system, can easily overshadow the relatively minuscule cost of purchasing legitimate software.

I will omit my opinions on the copyright perspective except to say I am a working musician.
