I am running Beta 2 5384 and none of the versions of D-tools work. I am not going to try anything about 3.33 [ blue screen].

3.33 gives the contact your admin error and 3.02 [ which worked in prev builds] installs fine but reports an error with the virtual driver not being there.

I did also get star port to work but during an install of VS 2005 it stopped working. The fight for virtual drive vista continues. I really like d-tools and hope to see a fix.

3.02 Works fine, you just have to run the EXE as administrator (right click on icon)

hi,
I personally think it must be a hardware compatibility problem with your pc and daemon because i installed 3.33 on every build of vista i have ( 3683 till 5384 and 5421 also ):wink:
and this on the 5 different pc's i have!
Never a problem at all!

Take care!

where could you find it ...
i've nstall 3.47 with blue screen and a none working install an no way to remove :-<

sfkilla23
27.05.2006, 20:47
what can't you find? the 3.33?
if its this than you should go in the download section of the site and down till archive....all daemon versions are there!

Blue screen....you definitely have a problem....(hardware) i never had a blue screen with any daemon...i remember the blue screen age with win98 but this is years ago!

Hi

I having trouble with this new cool windows:confused:
When I try to install the daemon-tools on the x64 version, after restart I get this error screen before booting:

File: \System32\Drivers\sptd.sys

On Vista Build 5384 I couldn't get 3.02 to work. I tried to uninstall, it hung, and then the file st320hg.sys became corrupt :(. Reinstalling Vista now.

Any tips?

You may have to reinstall Vista. Sorry. I had a similar error, and couldn't get around it.

For future ref, Create a restore point after the base os is installed.

hi,

If you guys have read the posts, you would see that i use daemon 3.33 on all vista since build 5048 untill latest 5421.
I also have different configurations but it stills works without any problem on any on my pcs.

I personally think that you guys have a hardware problem or some hardware that makes conflict with DT's virtual drive!
I have Amd based system and also Pentium based systems but either of them work nice with any vista and DT 3.33.

My main Config is:

MSI NEO2 LS Intel 865PE
Pentium 4C @ 3200mhz ( 266*12 ) Intel Fan
1 Go Ram DDR400 @ 422mhz Dual Channel ( 4*256 )
Geforce 6600GT AGP 128M XFX Zalman VF700
Hitachi 160Go 7200Rpm 8M
FreeCom F-1 CDRW 52X

HD in 3 Partitions!
C: 40Go - Vista Beta 2
D: 40Go - Xp SP2
E: 80Go - Backup Drive
F: Daemon Drive
G: CDRW

The trick to putt Xp on partition 2 "D:" is to install xp first on D:
After that install Vista mounting it from xp ( with Dt or Alcohol120 ) on the C:
Otherwise if you install vista on the C: first.... it will be deleted or overwritten when you will try to install Xp after that.
Just a trick to make it quick!

My Second main pc:

ABIT NF7-S V1.2 NForce2
AMD ATHLON XP 1800+ @ 2300mhz ( 200*11.5 )
512 Mo DDR400 ( 2*256 )
Maxtor 160Go 7200rpm 16Mo
ATI RADEON 9600 PRO 256Mo AGP
LITEON DVDROM

Partitions same way as above!

I remember i had complication with other versions of DT such as 3.02, 3.47, 4.00, 4.03 but since i found version 3.33 i never had any problems anymore!
I had more complication with my AMD system than my Intel system!

Can i suggest you guys to try a fresh install of vista... but this time only attach 1 hard disk and 1 dvdrom! take away all other unescessary (at the moment) hardware. (exemple: Tuner cards, audio cards, raid cards, etc but also check the bios of your system and disactivate raid controller and firewire controller.... Actually it would be good just to disactivate anything that you don't need to install vista with!

I know it might be boring but this is how i do everytime i wanna know where the problem comes from and it usually gives me an answer!
By the way it only takes a couple of more minutes to go through the bios settings! :rolleyes:

Voila!:)
Hope i'll get some testing feedback from you

Sincerely,
SFkilla23

Judging by that error, it looks like all that needs to be done is get sptd.sys digitally signed....
The image hash not being found in the system catalogs should just be vista looking for the SIP's and not finding them, so denying access to run sptd.sys as a kernel mode process... AFAIK anyways...

Apparently you should be able to force Vista to use an unsigned driver by pressing f8 at the boot menu and choosing the corresponding option

unfortunately i think this would need to be done at every boot

Sorry guys.... but version 3.33 of Daemon tools installation DOES NOT ASK to reboot or what so ever! This is the reason why it works great with all vista.

Does it ask you to reboot ???
Do you reboot yourself ???
Do you guys install DT on C: or D: ???

If you don't explain or be more specific... i can't help you.

Thanks for replying:)

So, are you guys talking about Vista x32 ? I saw someone saying that 3.02 would work on all Vista versions... but I'm assuming they mean the 32-bit ones?

I have had no luck getting DT4.03 x64 to run on Vista Beta 2. I get the sptd.sys crash at startup. I have'nt really done any troubleshooting yet. I wanted to check out if any of you guys had any luch on the 64-bit department.

What nobody has said, that I can see, is that before you install v3.33 in Vista you must disable UAP first. This is the protection layer that causes all those annoying popups everytime you try to do something. This is done by the following.
start/administrative tools/system configuration/tools scroll down and click on Disable UAP/ click launch and then reboot

Once you have done that, v3.33 will install and work perfectly well in 5384.4.

I have disabled UAP, restarted and tried to install 3.33, but all I get from Deamon Tools after install and restart is this error:

"No language support detected"

Any idea? Should I try 3.02?

jdanforth
04.06.2006, 18:35
I got 3.02 installed now, but now Vista says I need to activate Windows within 14 days, and trying to activate over Internet fails with a longish error code... Jeeeez :mad:

Is it due to the disabling of UAP or the installation of 3.02 itself?

I have been reading this thread, gave it a shot, and I got Daemon Tools v3.33 to install on the first try!

My environment:
* Windows Vista Beta 2 (5384) 32-bit (x86)
* Vista is my primary OS on the C: drive
* UAP is OFF
* Dell Inspiron 6000 (Laptop)
* Lots of other software already installed and running

Installation Steps:
1. Created a restore point (always a good idea)
2. Ran daemon.msi (v3.33) normally
3. I was twice asked if it was okay to install unsigned software: clicked OK both times
4. Installation completed successfully, no reboots!

I ran the tool and everything seems to work fine. I was surprised it worked because I've never had it work before in previous versions of Vista. The primary difference between now and then was that now I have Vista as my primary OS (on the C: drive). I can't remember if I previously turned off UAP, but that probably had something to do with it as well.

Hopefully this is helpful. Thanks to everyone else who has been working hard and providing feedback!

If you use 64bit vista you can NOT install v3.x and earlier versions, they don't support 64bit OS.

You can permanently disable the digital driver signing enforcement (will be removed in release thou)

cmd: Bcdedit.exe /set nointegritychecks ON

However if I try to install SPTD nothing happens when I boot, it just starts the installation again.. maybee it can be installed manually somehow?

DAEMON Tools 4.xx is NOT compatible (ie. the drivers will not work and you can't make a driver suddenly work just by turning off the digital signature checking) with recent betas (it did work on older versions of Vista beta's).

Daemon Tools ver 3.02 will install and run on Vista 5384...BUT!!!! it screws the activation.
It resets the activation to 14days and will not allow Vista to be activated until DT,s is uninstalled.

This tool ( image drive) works but it has limited file support.

You will need to use version 3.33 if you are running Vista Beta2 (build 5384.4). There are currently three issues being investigated at MS regarding this app:

1) 4.0x installations fail to load driver and result in a reboot request loop.
2) 3.20 and earlier versions install but unactivate Windows (and reactivation is not possible)
3) 3.47 installation completes, but bugcheck 7e occurs on reboot when driver attempts to load

Version 3.33 is your best bet until the next public release of Windows Vista (RC1).

then i get that no language support error...
so i guess theres more reg keys too copy...but i dunno where to start...

4.01 was the first to work in x64

Since 4.01 was the first version of DTools to work on x64 and all 4.0x versions are failing to install (reboot request loop), then folks will have to wait for a newer build of Vista (RC1 in August). Or just run x86. Vista Beta2 x64 is crap anyways.

Underheaven
17.06.2006, 06:55
Or just run x86

Fyi: Neither DAEMON Tools 4.00, 4.01, nor 4.03 will install properly on Vista Beta 2. Doesn't matter if your OS is 64-bit or 32-bit.

18.06.2006, 12:53
Well..I (unfortunately) seem to be one of those with the 64 bit issues...I've tried countless different things, either ending up with the blasted sptd.sys error, or one very similar to bscan's. (on 3.33, however I've gone through all the previous versions up to 3.02 and still coming up with the same errors)

However, my error message is slightly different:

Error 25001. Device setup error: code 25007 (0x61AF), -536870347 (0xE0000235) .
Contact your support personnel.

I've gone and disabled UAP, and pretty much have followed all the advice on this forum up until now.

Any ideas?

I am kinda curious wondering if anybody else has gotten this problem...when I am installing windows vista beta 2 I get through till I reach the section that says "checking compatability" which then I get a compatibility report that tells me I need to get some drivers for alot of things but one thing that I would like to point out is this "The following applications/drivers are not supported in Windows Vista.
The following devices will not work until the device driver software is updated. After the installation is complete, contact the device manufacturer for updated driver software for these devices:

1. SCSI/RAID Host Controller

There are more but I think this one is kinda related to daemon tools, right? At least I think so...anyhow I would appreciate is someone would help me out here. Thank you very much.:)

Are you running an upgrade wizard? If so it is recommended to uninstall DAEMON Tools before an OS upgrade (or before creating a Recovery console cmdcons folder [to avoid an access denied message]) and then re-install it into the new OS.

I have not used Vista so I'm not sure at what point in the install process the "checking compatability" section gets displayed.

I'm having a problem installing daemon tools with the new Vista Beta. When i trying installing the new 4.0.3 version, the installer will ask me to restart over and over again. When i try to install with 3.33 version i get an error that reads (Error 25001. Device setup error. code 25030 [0x61c6], 1168 [0x490]). Is daemon tools not workable with Vista or is this a different problem?

If it's the x86 version, there is another very large thread around here about getting DT 3.33 working already, you should check there first (see link below). If it's the x64 version, you cannot install DT or Alcohol at all (or any virtual drive software to my knowledge).

My attempts:
4.0.3 x86 - SPTD attempt...no dice...
Cleaned out attempted installs. Vista rebooting fine at this point.
3.20 - Sucessfully; activation reset (data invalid crap)
3.33 - Hanging installer. Killing SYSTEM msiexec process gives error (windows installer not accessable), install rolled back, install canceled.
3.33 - Asked to roll back current instalation. Driver verify for device instalation (same as for installing non-logo'd drivers). Hanging install, killed larger SYSTEM msiexec process (gives same error as above when done so). Install roll back to unsucessfull screen. Have to restart...wish me luck.

Well...I'm back, but I ended up having a dirty 3.20 install (on boot requested critical driver st320hg, which is 3.20 (obviously) ), so I loaded up The ultimate boot CD for windows, ran regedit pe, and removed the entries for it manually.

Restart, vista loaded sucessfully, and I got a DT icon. MMC lists two (2) ST3WOLF SCSI Adapters (one w/error, 1 ok), and the data is still invalid for activation. Removing extra Adapter was painless, but still no luck...but I do have 3.33 installed sucessfully (albeit painfully)

I never had any installation error or whatever error with v3.33 of DT in vista 32bit build of vista... (from build 5231-5384)untill a couple of weeks ago:

Actually i had an error installing dt3.33 on vista!
Explanation: I tried to install dt4.03 first ( don't work ) and after that fail i tried installing dt3.33 ( this is were i get the error )
So its easy! Never try any other DT version before v3.33 !!!!
In other words... after a fresh installation of vista.... install DT3.33 directly without trying another newer version ( that won't work ) and you won't have the installation error ! This is with the 32bit vista build ( 64bit is another story )


Trying a newer version of DT before installing v3.33 seems to mess up the all virtual drive system in vista
Take it for advice

This is what worked for me after that:

- Tried install v3.33 (after v4.03 try)
- Get error !!!
- Than i went into device manager and the ST3WOLF controller was marked with a yellow exclamation mark!
- I uninstalled the ST3WOLF controller
- Reboot the PC
- After the reboot...i got the DT3.33 installation window that tells me "DT3.33 was install successfully" and the desktop icon appeared on my desktop.
- I opened DT, Used it to install couple of programs and everything works great since then.

Sincerely

Hey there I was quickly looking around the forums for a guide but couldn't find one (perhaps I didn't look hard enough?)

I was just curious as to whether anyone has (or can write) a step by step guide of how to install Vista using Daemon Tools (I have the latest version)

I tried before and all seemed to work ok, but after installation it would only boot up to a blue screen of death, though safe mode worked fine.. but nothing I did would fix normal start up. Thanks for any help!

P.S. I have just reformatted the C: drive and am looking to reinstall vista.

SFKilla, Does your vista stay activated after you installed it? After removing the ST3WOLF SCSI Adapter (yellow), did vista go activated again?

sfkilla23
23.06.2006, 10:33
no! no activation problems...i'm activated and it stays like this!
Never had an activation change or problem before or after DT installation...
but i'm wondering how this could be related any how???

I think this is a problem with the 64bit versions of vista.

Vista Build 5384

Tried to install 3.33, 3.43 & 3.44. None of them worked.

Same Error-Message at all Versions:

"Device setup error: code 25030 (0x61c6), -536870337 (0xE000023F). Contact your Service personnel"

By the way, itґs a Windows Installer Package, so u canґt execute it as "Admin" ;) (as aforementioned)

I managed to install v3.33 with no problems while logged into the Administrator account. Unfortunately I did this before activating Vista and as a result the activation wouldn't work. Kept saying something about 'invalid data'.

Uninstalled DT and the activation worked fine. I read elsewhere on the net that reinstalling DT had deactivated Vista again for some people but I tried it anyway and it worked fine for me and I've had no more problems.

FYI... To enable the Administrator account do the following...

Go to start --> run and type "control userpasswords2" without the quotes.

Click on the Advanced tab.

Under "Advanced User Management" click the Advanced button.

Click on Users then right click the Administrator account and select Properties.

Uncheck "Account is disabled".

Reboot and there you go...

I have Widnows Vista Beta 2 build 5384 (x32 bit) and when I try to install Daemon Tools (daemon403-x86.exe), I get this message:

http://amanda.benavides.googlepages.com/d_install.jpg

and then I get another message saying that I have to reboot, like so:

http://amanda.benavides.googlepages.com/d_install_reboot.jpg

I clicked "OK" on both of these instances and then when the computer reboots, the installation just repeats itself and asks the same questions, including the ones mentioned above.

What can I do to solve this?
I donwloaded the installer from the Daemon Tools website itself, so maybe is it because I using the wrong version of Dameon Tools to install? :confused:

Absolutely!!!
Actually i'm working on it as i write this...
I already tested around 10 games of mine... and guys.....Vista 5456 kicks ass big time.
I will post my test in this forum later tomorrow!!!
I've tried all my games with daemon v3.33 (installed as i explained in this forum too) and sometimes some third party proggys like securom loader v1.2 from daemon also and SD4hide.

Hello everyone,

There as always been one main reason for me to keep using Xp as main Os, games, games and....games!
I have to admit that since build December05 CTP (Build 5270), Graphics were much improved and stability was on
a good way.
The latest vista build 5456 is really improved with gameplay and AA (Antialliasing is endly there)
I'm not an everyday freak extreme gamer but i have some need for speed and reality.

I will start this post with the games i tried untill now (still have others but no time - will update in futur)

I forgot to mention that i don't just install the game and play 10 min to see if it works. I usually install the game, check for the latest updates, drivers, etc...
I do hour sessions (play an hour or two) and do a little break and so on. I also test a game during two or three days.

Here are my specs:

MSI NEO2 LS INTEL 865PE
PENTIUM 4C @ 3200mhz (267*12)
1Go Ram DDR @ 427mhz (256*4) dual channel
Geforce 6600GT AGP 128m XFX (OC @ 580/1160)
Hitachi 160Go 7200rpm 8m (3 partitions)
Freecom F1 CDRW 52x + Mediabay
Levicom 340W

Software installed:

Windows Vista 5456.5 (X86 = 32Bit version)
Daemon Tools v3.33 (4.03 still don't work) Same for ALC120%
Nvidia 88.61 drivers

Important!!!

I already posted this but i prefer to put it here again:
After a fresh install of latest build of vista (5456.5 at present), only install v3.33 of daemon tools and don't try any other version before as it will only complicate the good
working of v3.33. Intallation errors etc....

(If you already tried to install any earlier build before trying v3.33, you can always uninstall first and reboot to see what happens.)

In my case, after a simple reboot... vista fixed it all alone and v3.33 was working great!

Also vista is installed on same hard disk than xp (dual boot)
Xp on C: , Vista5456 on D: and backup partition on E:
My cdrom letter is G: and the daemon virtual drive is F:
Images of games where created with latest alcohol120% and .mds with rmps activated.


Here we go:

- The Sims 2 (DT3.33 + SD4Hide)
DVD version and also 4 extensions ( University - Nightlife - Open for business - Family fun )
Its the only game that worked ok since build 5270... went better and better till 5384 where only the menu inside the game was flickering constantly and now its really good in 5456.
It works like in XP and its even faster to install.

- Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06 (DT3.33 + SD4Hide)
This game is playable since build 5308... never had a graphic artifact or anything else but it as always been to slow. Its a precise golf simulation so it better be sharp!
Since build 5381.1 it runs good but still slower than Xp
In the latest 5456 build its really better (AA is there now) its nearly like Xp now and only difficult people like me will feel the difference. So good for this one too.

- Pro Evolution Soccer 5(DT3.33 + Securom load v1.2)
This game runs great since build 5219 and even earlier just because its not a demanding game (Don't need a monster to run it) But and for me its a big but.... I have never had sound with this game ( the intro sound and everything is there but once i'm in the menu ... nothing.
I've an integrated Sound card (C-media 6channels or something... guess thats not good enough for it)

- Tomb raider Legend (DT3.33 + Securon Load v1.2)
I only tested this game since build 5384.4 since i didn't buy it before. I have to say Amazing!!!
or nothing to say. same or better than xp.

- NBA Live 06 (DT3.33 + SDhide)
No problems at all since many older vista builds! Fast and sharp.

- Farcry ( Updated v1.33 ) (DT3.33 + SDHide)

This game worked ok in latest builds (5308 untill 5384.4) but framerate always to slow and mostly, graphic problems such as flickering, artifacts etc...
Those problems mainly due to the graphic card drivers not too good untill then.

...But in this latest 5456 build (AA present here) its a world of difference
The speed is amazing, the graphics are superb, picture as more light, better contrast and colors are warmer...
Its the game untill now, that i'm the most impressed with.
I didn't even feel testing it because i really got into the game again.
After more than 2 days of playing (around 12hours... i know i'm on holidays for a couple of weeks)
i didn't have any problems.

Half Life 2: (5CDs version) (DT3.33+Securom Load1.2)

This game used to work fine from dt3.33 in earlier builds (5308-5381.1) but since build 5384.4 and this one.
This is what i get:
http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d178/pity233/hl2error.jpg

I tried from my original discs but same problem!
Will have to test further on this one. i 'll let you know.

... ok got it. I had some dirt on my original cd n&#176;4. I cleaned it, made an mds image and all good. I will test and update the post.

http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d178/pity233/hl2solved.jpg

F.E.A.R (1.03) : DT3.33+Secu load1.2)
This game runs great also... since build 5365. Great graphics and since 5456... again AA is making a big difference.
No protection problems so far ;)

Ok thats it so far....
here are some games that i'm testing now... i will update my post everytime. Starforce games will be interesting to test as we know that v3.33 of DT is not build for it.

Next will be:
-Toca Race Driver 3
-GT Legends
-Colin Mc Rae 05
-Medal of honor Latest??
-Prince of Persia Two Thrones
-Etc...

sfkilla23
30.06.2006, 20:34
Starforce is something else!

- GT Legends (v1.1) (DT3.33+SFupdate+Sfcure)

Well well well... this game used to work from build 5270 untill build 5365 without any protection problems.
Since build 5381, 5384 and 5456... its another story.
Normally game used to install just with dt3.33 and i used sfcure to make it start like usual. Starforce tell it wants to restart so i did but on reboot i got this:
http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d178/pity233/sf.jpg

And when i loaded the game i had this:
http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d178/pity233/sf1.jpg

So i realised that Starforce had made and update specifically for vista.
Source: http://www.star-force.com/protection.phtml?c=83&id=957

I installed the update & game could start with sfcure.

PS: framerate is improved alot but still slower than xp!

sfkilla23, Am I to understand that that DirectX on Vista has slowdowns with Anti-Aliasing until the most recent release?


edit: aaah, found an article on the topic here:
http://www.anandtech.com/systems/showdoc.aspx?i=2780&p=11

sfkilla23
30.06.2006, 22:39
The source you give is based on build 5384.4 of vista, which is the actual public build (CPP BETA 2).
Anti alliasing (AA) is only present on vista since 5456.5 so AA was not slowing down vista because it was not really "fully" activated in previous vista's.

But its true that when i compared my own 3dmark03 benchmarks between Xp and Vista, I've always had a little less for vista:
In xp i get around 9200pts in 3dmark03 and in vista i get around 8000pts.
On the other side i benchmarked farcry and:
-without AA i run around 43fps
-With AA i run around 39fps
So don't really feel the difference.

Sure that directx (Between 9.0c & DirectX 10)and AA are slowing down a little at the moment but since 5456 its really getting close to xp. Even faster for some games and better quality for others.
And directx and AA are not the only things slowing down the gameplay ( UAP and other security stuff from vista are eating machine resources )Better have 1Go of ram minimum and 2Go is not too much.

Hope i answered your question and thanks for the link!

Error 25030 means:
You MUST reboot before re-installation.

But as you're running on vista, who knows what resolution to try.

Running Vista 5456 and keep getting the 25030 error with DT 3.33. Have succesfully installed SPTD 1.25 but get the same error with and without latest SPTD installed.

No amount of rebooting helps.

Any ideas?

Reinstall Vista and do not install any DAEMON Tools version besides 3.33. Failed installs of other versions seem to interfere.

Reinstall of Vista is not needed.
1: Download SPTD-driver 1.25.
2: Install it (sptdinst_x86.exe add)
3: Reboot
4: Remove it (sptdinst_x86.exe remove)
5: Install D-Tools 3.33

After a fresh install of 5456, simply install 3.33 and nothing else!(No sptd 1.25 because its build for the 4.xx versions) Trust me!

As for the DT4.03HE working on vista... We are getting closer but NOT YET WORKING. Be patient as i feel it working very soon with latest DT.

In vista 5456, Directly after completion of install the 4.03he + sptd1.25, I get the error the first time i want to load DT !
After the installation, i 've no scsi controller in the device manager ( funny because the installation completes with luck)
Its only when i load DT that i get the error (and also i have the dt's icon in the taskbar during that time only)

Its hard to explain, this is why i gave a screenshot last time.

I want to thank you guys for the interest and the hint for the error loo location ;)

I did a clean install of 5384 on a new partition!
After installation of drivers and updates, I installed the Latest Daemon Tools ( 4.03HE With Sptd update - 32Bit ).

http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d178/pity233/dt4beta2.jpg

All went perfect. The scsi controller installs the first time you open daemon tools. So endly we got Beta 2 ( and only beta 2 ) running fine with DT4.03.

Thank you to the team - Great work like always :)

PS: There is a but... DT4.03 only works with Beta 2 (5384) because its the free public build etc...
I'm actually trying it out with build 5456 of vista and it doesn't work !!! Hope this gets fixed too. One big reason is that ANti Alliazing is present in 5456 and games are much faster.

I know by experience that earlier installation of DT, messed up the good installation of the new one. Maybe i will make a fresh install of vista 5456 also and try to install latest DT after that. I let you know.

Do you see any error messages in system event log?

Ok, After it finally succeded with Beta2, I did a fresh install of build 5456 and i tried the latest DT (4.03HE + Sptd1.25).
Guess what? It still doesn't work in 5456.

Its true that when i look at build 5456, There are many changes in this build in comparison to beta2 5384.
I hope we will find a solution because games are really faster in 5456.

Here is a screen of the error log:

Dear All, I can install Daemontools 4.03 on Windows Vista x64 beta2.

I belive we can install Daemontools x86 ver on Vista x86.

How to install,
(Information form Microsoft White Papaer

How to Disable Signature Enforcement during Development)

Execute the "Bcdedit.exe set nointegritychecks ON"

-Root Cause
Current Vista system want Sigunautre of Driver.
However, Daemontool does not have sigunature.
Then Windows stop loading the Daemon Tools.

To Support team menber,
Please add the signature.

Hi,
Have you read the post.... because since the new DT4.03he you don't need to do anything! It works great but only on
Beta2 (x86 & x64).

But your story might work for Build 5456???
This one still doesn't work.

I try it out and tell you.
Stay tuned :) & thanks for the info.

Hi again,

Since i prefer to check it out for myself.
I have a fresh install of 5456, and i applied the BCDedit trick
and it doesn't work on vista 5456.

Screens: Same result as before!

http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d178/pity233/CMD.jpg
http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d178/pity233/CMDafter.jpg

As i told to " Darkmark ", i don't think its the bcdedit trick that made daemon 4.03 run on your machine. I think its the daemon's update with latest sptd (1.25) that made it work (maybe this is what the latest sptd does?)
Maybe i'm wrong... Who else as 5456 and wants to test this out.

If anybody as build 5456 of vista like me! Can you please test this bcdedit trick, so we can continue or stop with it.


Thanks all for sharing this and thank you darkmark for letting me hope ;)

Hi sfkilla23,

I tried SPD1.25 with out BCDedit.
I saw loading error on Windows boot up because hash is missmatch.

Then I try the BCDedit trick because Windows does not check the hash on this mode.

It was solved loading error.

I saw your error with Debug kernel mode of F8 option when boot-up.
http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d1...3/CMDafter.jpg

And I'm so sorry, I did not tried this trick on 5456.
Microsoft White papare said, This BCDedit is work on earliear version because this is for driver vendor.

To:Support
Anyway, SPD1.25 was not work on my x64 5384 without BCDedit trick then please add sigunature.

I am fairly sure that bcdedit trick will not work with Vista because it is not an issue with the driver integrity, it is an issue with Daemon tools opening the adaptor in "kernel" mode. My guess is that the driver is set to operate in "kernel" mode, while Vista wants it to operate in "user" mode. I have the 5456 build and I can test it, but I am 99% sure it will not work.

sfkilla23
08.07.2006, 05:22
So actually you have more problems than me to make DT run on your vista 5384,
because i don't need the bcdedit trick to run DT4.03HE latest (probably related to the 64bit version)and you do! Also the trick doesn't work for me in 5456.

I think we should wait a little (its weekend) so more people might try the bcdedit trick on 5456. And we will see than.

PS: In your case, it will be on vista64bit. Unfortunately i only have 32bit systems :(

Wait and see ;)

Thanks again for replying!

Running Vista Beta 2 and have the problem where stpd.sys is detected as not working properly at start and Vista will not load, anyone know how to fix please?

(This is with the newest download)

Edit: Fixed it by clicking "Use Last Known Good Config", guess I'll have to live without Daemon Tools :(

Hi all,

How to:

-Install a fresh copy of Vista Beta 2 build 5384.4
-Install Daemon Tools 4.03HE (sptd1.25)

Thats it! :)

PS: If you already tried anything with earlier daemon tools versions (it can make you fail the installation of the newest daemon).
So this is why its better to install a fresh copy of beta2 before trying latest DT.

Untill now, it only works with build 5384 (beta2) and it doesn't work on latest Vista (5456.5).

Hi sfkilla23

I am also trying desperately to get 4.03HE working in build 5456.

I will just confirm that i tried the BC fix by pressing F8 when starting windows and disable the driver signature check as the document described. I uses the F8 solution to only disable the signature check one boot-time - instead of doing it permanently with the command. But the document says it does the same thing.

The error-message is a little different now, but same problem.

Instead of:
Unable to add adapter. Unable to open file in kernel mode.

It now says:
Unable to add adapter. Insufficient privileges.

I also tried to disable Windows Defender because i thought at first that this app was the problem as there was an event log (in defender) that said that daemon tools was detected (but not blocked) as an unknown risk. But anyway the problem still exist after disabling windows defender realtime protection - so it must be something else.

There must be some reg-hack or something that can allow daemon tools to lanch properly.

Hope somebody find a solution soon, a lot of people are running the free-to-download build 5384 milestone version. And some of us is running the even newer builds.

Now i just hope ATI soon updates the graphic driver, so i can run TV-Out in theater mode. There is no overlay options in the current ATI driver :-(

But except for Daemon Tools and ATI Overlay issue, it is running pretty good but pretty slow.

Best Regards

hi goa...,

Thanks for telling us your testing. I'm smilling because i went through the same steps as you did. (F8 & bcdedit) but no luck like you say.

I'm just a little afraid for all the vista builds above beta2 (5456 and next) as there are many changes from one vista to the other. This will make it even harder in the futur.
But hope is always on my side and i feel confident to make it work on 5456.

PS: If vista is slow on your machine, than you should check your specs. Me its faster than xp in many things already and gaming starts to kick ass with Anti-alliazing.

Thanks for letting us know what you tried.
I'm sure the team will take note of it.

Actually it was stupid in this case!
Change the sptd from 5384 with the 5456 isn't the problem, Got the proove by trying it. didn't even get a message or what so ever.
The problem in 5456 is the SCSi controller installation (kernel error stated above).
The bcdedit trick isn't really worth it as i know from Microsoft sources, Bcdedit won't be accessible anymore in the final release! So i wouldn't concentrate on it too much.

Thanks for replying!

Hi, the Windows Defender in Vista blocks the Daemon installation so to install the DAEMON 4.03 in Windows Vista, you have to turn off the Windows Defender and after you installs turn on again.

Good Luck :)

Waouw... that easy lol thank you! you made everybody's day with this.
By the way, did you try with build 5456?
Because i just disabled Windows defender and tried again... it doesn't work on 5456 and also its not needed anymore since latest DT with beta2.

Its because there have been changes in bcdedit and system manager in latest 5456,even vistabootpro gave a trick to install it on 5456. its just a coincidance i guess :)

I tried installing the "new" 4.03 on build 5456, and it no longer has the SPTD driver install loop, but I'm still getting errors. I ran it from a regular (non-admin) account and answered the UAC prompts. I also forgot to uninstall virtual clone drive first, if that matters.

I get a "Windows detected that this program did not install correctly" on the first pass, with no explanation, and on the second pass after reboot everything seems to install, but running it produces "Unable to add adapter. Insufficient privileges."

On a second system where I uninstalled Virtual Clone Drive first, rebooted, and then logged in as a real administrator, it installed without any errors, and then when I run it I get "Unable to add adapter. Unable to open file in kernel mode." Subsequent attempts to run it go back to "Unable to add adapter. Insufficient privileges."

Anybody else try this new version and find success on vista?

Under Vista Beta 2 Build 5384 I can install DT and run it (it initializes the drives and everything on startup) but I can't get the right click menu.

If I switch display settings to anything under aero (even vista basic) right clicking does work (and I can switch back and the image I mounted under basic works)


Running an ATI mobility radeon X1600 if that helps. No other virtual drive software or burning software or anything.

It is true that Graphic driver in Vista might give some conflicts with Daemon tools. Don't forget that Vista is still a Beta!
I had sometime some graphic bugs while i installed daemon tools but it was only with build 5456 of vista. The menu settings of the explorer use to settle back as default. But i repeat, I only had this with build 5456 of vista.

Daemon tools 4.03HE is 100% compatible with Beta 2 5384 only!

Ok! :)
I use to have this error also, but not with daemon tools!
I had this error with Vistabootpro and i had 3 partitions on my machine. (Xp, 5456 and 5384), i mixed up the boot file and couldn't even install 5384 with latest DT.

I think its already putt 10 times in this thread but... never enough they say :rolleyes:

When i say vista works 100%, Its depending on how you installed it.

This is the perfect way:

- Install Beta2 5384 (Fresh partition & fresh install)
- Install Daemon Tools 4.03HE (Latest only including sptd1.25)

Is it that hard?

Many people still have problems just because they mix up installation, updates, uninstallation etc... its all disturbing the good installation of 4.03HE on vista.

Having multiple partitions can also be cause for trouble, Because if your boot file looks unusual, it will be hard for daemon to install properly. Thats the big reason for the fresh install, instead of mixing up partitions.

And finally, never forget its still a beta! ;)

Hope it helped

There is some legal dispute over the ownership of the code for EasyBCD, apparently it was stolen from VistabootPRO

the author of EasyBCD was one of the people who was helping make VistabootPRO, but he was trying to claim all the credit for himself and advertise his site in the credits etc. (all against the NDA he had signed)

the option you see highlighted is the same as using the command line to enter the command

While we are on this Boot Configuration Data (BCD) topic with tools like bcdedit and EasyBCD, here's something I don't understand. On an non-EFI (just a normal BIOS) computer BCD options are not stored in NVRAM, where are they stored? In some sort of bootup database file that isn't user editable like the old fashioned boot.ini was? It has got to be stored in a file or series of files on the disk, I wonder where?

"Physically, a BCD store is a binary file in the registry hive format." The file is called BCD and is stored in the active partition's \boot folder.

Ok after trying to read 16+ pages of "what to do" I still dont see a CLEAR answer to a question
Will Daemon tools work with build 5384 64 bit OS?
I'm not trying to be rude but trying to read that many pages that DON'T apply (32 and 64 are completely different) and I still can't make heads or tails.
Yes I have disabled the damn "feature that warns everytime i want to do something" (sorry been a while and dont remember the proper title) and It was a pain to install but was done on a freshly re-formatted SATA drive, that i think is the problem I'm having it tells me it can not eject the drive.
A simple go-no go answer would make me happy, I understand it's a whole new animal(64bit AND vista)
I did download the 4.0.3 X64 version.

Will Daemon tools work with build 5384 64 bit OS?Make sure you redownload the latest version of the DAEMON Tools install program. The version number hasn't changed (4.03HE) but the SPTD driver version changed to 1.25 (a version that is Vista Beta 2 compatible).

The answer is yes, the latest version of DAEMON Tools will work on 32-bit and x64 versions of Vista Beta 2 (note: only the beta 2 build).

The answer is yes, the latest version of DAEMON Tools will work on 32-bit and x64 versions of Vista Beta 2 (note: only the beta 2 build).

Wrong. It does not work on x64. Fresh install of Beta2 x64, single drive/partition, etc etc., still get the "image hash cannot be found" error on bootup after forced reboot on initial install.

sfkilla, appreciate all your testing and such, but in reading through these 17 pages, you don't distinguish at all between 32 and 64bit in most of your posts, other than the one time where you did admit they are very much different.

If I may suggest, let's all identify which version we're talking about, would eliminate a lot of confusion! :)

Underheaven
17.07.2006, 10:26
Wrong. It does not work on x64.
It has been tested internally and does work on Vista Beta 2 build 5384.4 x64 Edition. But you don't have to believe me of course.

I can confirm the Public beta x64 vista works with latest Daemon Tools.
Ive been using this copy since the start of the public beta, all i had to do was get VistaBoot Pro --> Advanced --> Allow use of unsigned drivers in x64 Edition?

checking that box stopped the hash check problem from coming up when initialising the sptd.sys driver.

Only problem i encountered was an inability to change the registry settings when setting auto start as a power user (worked fine when i ran the tray icon as admin.)

*edit:
Also my only HDD is a SATA drive (optical drives on PATA IDE)

yup, vistabootpro 2.0 beta (http://www.vistabootpro.org/) works great with 5456 :D
I don't know if anyone tried it out, but if you select allow unsigned drivers, does it work with 5456 then?

I guess the question goes for 5456 64bit?
I only have 32bit systems so i didn't try it.
I'm also waiting for latest build 5472 to come up any moment.

Hello. I read that now daemon tools 4.0.3 with new stpd drive works in Vista beta 2. But after installation daemon tools doesn't work http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/610/problemqv0.th.jpg (http://img215.imageshack.us/my.php?image=problemqv0.jpg) and thats all. Please help me (

Hi Zarogon

at the moment, daemon tools will only work with the official beta 2 build, 5384

something was changed in 5456 that (as you have seen) prevents DT from working :mad:

Ok! :)
I use to have this error also, but not with daemon tools!
I had this error with Vistabootpro and i had 3 partitions on my machine. (Xp, 5456 and 5384), i mixed up the boot file and couldn't even install 5384 with latest DT.

I think its already putt 10 times in this thread but... never enough they say :rolleyes:

When i say vista works 100%, Its depending on how you installed it.

This is the perfect way:

- Install Beta2 5384 (Fresh partition & fresh install)
- Install Daemon Tools 4.03HE (Latest only including sptd1.25)

Is it that hard?

Many people still have problems just because they mix up installation, updates, uninstallation etc... its all disturbing the good installation of 4.03HE on vista.

Having multiple partitions can also be cause for trouble, Because if your boot file looks unusual, it will be hard for daemon to install properly. Thats the big reason for the fresh install, instead of mixing up partitions.

And finally, never forget its still a beta! ;)

Hope it helped
No it didn't.

I did what you described as the "perfect way" first time and that's the error I got.

I installed Vista on a freshly formated Hard Drive and installed Daemon Tools shortly after. It didn't work...

Maybe it's because it's x64 but this website seems to be indicating that it works on this build of Vista and the x64 version does work for the the x64 Vista

Senk's Pyr0 for your answer. I will hope that the Daemon Tools team find what changed in 5456 and release another version of DT work's in this build.

Sorry for my english, I am from Ukraine:rolleyes:

Dt v3.33 works great but its true that its not able to bypass latest protection ( i usualy used it with 3rd party softwares like securom loader or sdhide etc... Starforce above 3.xx doesn't work with v3.33)

Warning: I kind of toasted my 5472 install using this.

It wouldn't let me into the Admin account and of course the other accounts were gone. Rather than messing around in safe mode I've decided to reinstall and go with 3.33 for now.

Earlier I also got the "Unable to add adapter" and "unable to open file in kernel mode" errors despite running DT as Admin and also in compatibility mode.

This was all with Defender running and the default graphics drivers installed (Nvidia 7400 laptop). Someone mentioned that graphics might be an issue.

Edit: 3.33 wouldn't install either (25030, 25001).

I'm running Vista Beta 2 (5384) 64 bit edition. I have an Athlon 3200+, MSI Neo4 K8N with a gigabyte of ram on it and use a WD SATA HD.

I am able to read and follow directions. A quick VistaBoot installation, tweak and DT 4.0.3 installation gave me a DT installation with no hassles.

However, I am confused with one thing and none of the other forum posts I found could quite answer my question. When I load up an image with DT, it works and loads and runs like it should, but with one hitch.

It stutters.

Things like redbook audio, data loading, pretty much anything that accesses the images stutter. I'm not sure is this is a system hardware performance issue, a hard drive issue, but it's very odd to me. Running the same images and applications in XP x86 and XP x64 never gave me these problems. Anyone have any clues?

It's because Blindwrite 6 is a new program.

b) Do you know that you have to replace the .DLL file in the DAEMON Tools directory?

c) Why do you think 'Deamon tools does not work'? Keep in mind that Blindwrite 6 is a new program.

After hours of troubleshooting the issue I have posted regarding virtual drives not appearing in My Computer, I finally got v4.03HE to work on the Vista Beta 2 build 5384. Here's what I did:

Once v4.03 is install and turn on, set number of device to your desire value 1-4. Then open My Computer to see if the virtual drives appear. If not, then go to control panel and device manager. There should be an exclamation mark for the virtual drives in the Other Device group. Right click on each virtual drive and select update driver. Then tell Windows you want to select the location to search the driver file. Make sure to put c:\Windows in the browse field and Windows should be able to find the correct driver file for the virtual drives.

I long ago disabled driver signature's when I first did the install.
I'm sure as Underhaven posted it "may work" and I'll bet it was on an IDE primary partition therefore it worked...for those 'puters who use IDE primary drives.

I'm not trying to pick You out or anything, I will let You know it DID install but tries to put the virtual drive in the place of my DVD-RW drive and program would not allow me to either update/change drive letter for the virtual drive so once again I had to uninstall.
This is definately closer than the frist time I posted the way I read it was the virtual drive was trying to mount in the primary (first drive/0) of my secondary IDE where My DVD drive actually is. It would not let me change the driver for either drive in device manager telling Me driver was needed to boot the system? I'm assuming it is a conflict somehow with the SATA primary boot drive.
I appreciate the help and in no way think there is a "perfect solution"..yet! Hopefully everything will get sorted for it to work before Vista is a retail product , ahh the joys of beta software!

Just FYI (If it's not already somewhere else) - I tried this yesterday on my Vista build 5384, DaemonTools 4.03. After I started the install it gives that to complete the SPTD install it needs to reboot. It comes up with a reboot error stating that the file is corrupt or not in the system catalog. If I then return to the boot menu and hit F8, it gives me an option of booting with "Disable Driver Signing (or similar)". This then lets me install and load Daemontools and successfully mount an image. Don't know about protection however, not had the need to try that yet.

If you've just installed Vista a few days ago then one way is to just reinstall Vista. There's not much known yet about fixing Vista + DAEMON Tools problems. You can check to see if SPTD is installed (see if you are able to rename \Windows\system32\sptd.sys if it cannot be renamed then SPTD should be installed and working OK). Maybe you only thought SPTD was installed correctly.

Is Kernel Patch Protection the feature that prevents us from installing SPTD in Windows Vista? Or is it just incompatible?

I'm currently downloading that build, I hope this works on VMWare, otherwise it will take me longer to check if its working or not.

3.33 installs fine from an administrative command prompt on 5536 using msiexec /i daemon.msi
Remember make the exe always run as admin.

Didn't really try to get any newer builds working.

BTW, do customers have the 20 limit on moderated posts as well as everyone else? If so please consider lowering. Thanks.

I just tried build 5536 with the D-tools 4.0.3 and SPTD 1.25 (the current kit). Install on Vista 5536 says "This program is blocked due to compatibility issues...Daemon Tools is incompatible with this version of Windows."

There is a "Check for solutions online" button, but it never finished in any timely manner.
