It Isn’t Working Please Help I Have An Error Code, ie: Exit Code:8.
It Says The System Doesn’t Have A Driver To Update.

My instructions for the other user should apply to your case as well:

Then you might have to update your driver manually first before you can install the latest driver:

Download win64_25.20.100.6373.zip from Legacy Intel® Graphics Driver for Windows® 10
Mirror download: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/28289/a08/win64_25.20.100.6373.zip

This seems to suggest there is some problem with your game dump. You’ll need to redump your game. Please refer to our game dumping guides:

Dumping Game Cartridges
Dumping Installed Titles

Make sure your GM9 is up to date and that you have enough free storage space available on your SD-Card to perform the dump.
