Step 1: Use this link to download atvusb-creator and save it on your desktop. Choose the newest version of the atvusb-creator interim solution with SSH/XBMC/Boxee installers for XP/Vista platforms.

Step 2: From your desktop open the file you just downloaded (atv-win-1.0.b11.zip).

Step 3: Now drag the folder atv-win-1.0.b11 to your desktop.

Step 4: When pop-up window shows up asking you would you like to copy a file without encryption select the “Do this for all current items” at the bottom of the window and then click on Yes.

Step 5: If in next step a pop-up window shows up telling that a folder with the same name already exists then select “Do this for all current items” and click Skip button.

Step 7: To go directly to the folder you extracted to the desktop, inside Command prompt window type cd Desktop/atv-win-1.0.b11. If you are using another version than I did in this tutorial, just replace the atv-win-1.0.b11 folder name with that folder name.
