You should remove Daemon Tools and SPTD layer if you want to upgrade from XP using the upgrade funciton of Vista though.

I wasn't able to get it to work with vista :( I did a search of the forums, and couldn't find any information.

When I start WinVista I get the error message

"Initialization Error -- This program requires at least win2k with sptd 1.28 or higher.

Kernel Degubbger must be Deactivated"

If I try to un-install I get the error

"Setup is unable to validate installation"

The requirement of SPTD layer v1.28 shows that you tried obsolete Daemon Tools version.
Install SPTD layer v1.40 first:

after reboot install Daemon Tools v4.08.

i upgraded from xp to vista, but didn't remove dt4 oder sptd-drivers.
i managed to manually delete my old dt, and sptd.sys.
If i try to install DT or SPTD now i am adviced to reboot.
After that reboot i get the same popup to reboot my system.

Any ideas?

thanks in advance

Try booting to Safe Mode and starting setup from there.

safe mode doesn't work. i found out that i still got that reg-entries from sptd, but i am not able to delete them.

i guess these 2 entries prevent me from installing new dt or sptd

Ensure SPTD is not present/running in your system, then delete those keys, if you get permission error, enable all permissions in registry editor (in 2000 use regedt32) first.
