Hi,

I recently got Daemon tools pro, but now i cant find a working shell integration program anymore :/

I tried awxDTools, that says "Daemon.dll is not found"
I tried DAEMound, that doesnt give any error, but it also wont mount my images
I tried to do it manually, associating .iso files with "C:\Program Files\DAEMON Tools\DTPro(Agent).exe" -mount 0,"%1", that also didnt work...

Any solution for this?

Thanks

Just open the settings and check "DT Pro shell".

I realise this thread is a little old, but having just purchased DTPro I thought I would throw some input ...

Unfortunately the DTPro Shell integration is a little lacking. Especially when dealing with rare image types, or people that have no clue how to properly image a disc.

All you need to do is copy the dtpro.dll file in the DTPro folder and rename the new copy to daemon.dll, and awxDTools will install fine.
I have also written a script that adds extra file extensions to DTPro associations and also awxDTools context menus.

Just save this as daemon.bat and run it.


@echo off

REM Add DTPro automounting to other image types
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.iso" /VE /D "DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /F
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.isz" /VE /D "DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /F
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.bin" /VE /D "DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /F
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.cif" /VE /D "DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /F
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.vcd" /VE /D "DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /F
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.fcd" /VE /D "DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /F
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.img" /VE /D "DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /F
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.c2d" /VE /D "DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /F
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.dao" /VE /D "DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /F
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.tao" /VE /D "DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /F
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.ccd" /VE /D "DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /F
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.cue" /VE /D "DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /F
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.bwt" /VE /D "DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /F
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.cdi" /VE /D "DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /F
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.b5t" /VE /D "DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /F
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.b6t" /VE /D "DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /F
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.mds" /VE /D "DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /F
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.nrg" /VE /D "DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /F
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.pdi" /VE /D "DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /F

REM Change the default "File Type" label for images
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\DAEMON.Tools.Pro" /VE /D "DTPro Disc Image" /F

REM Enable awxDTools to add context-menu entries for the extra extensions
REM Note: To install awxDTools for DTPro, just copy the "dtpro.dll" as "daemon.dll" and awxDTools will work fine. (TESTED: DTPro v4300302)
REM Note2: Install awxDTools BEFORE running this script, as the installer can overwrite these entries.
REG ADD "HKCU\SOFTWARE\arniWORX\awxDTools" /V "CustomExtensions" /T REG_SZ /D "bin;cif;vcd;fcd;img;c2d;dao;tao;b5t;b6t" /F

REM Unreg and Rereg the awxDTools dll - Paths will need to be changed if you installed to a different folder.
REM This is so awxDTools can reload the custom extension list.
regsvr32 /u /s "C:\Program Files\DAEMON Tools Pro\awxDTools.dll"
regsvr32 /s "C:\Program Files\DAEMON Tools Pro\awxDTools.dll"

Of course, if there is a way to add this functionality to DTPro without resorting to a 3rd party extension, then I'm all ears. :)

Cheers.

Not all your mentioned image types are fully supported, that's why there is no shell extension for them. They can work, but they also can't.



All you need to do is copy the dtpro.dll file in the DTPro folder and rename the new copy to daemon.dll, and awxDTools will install fine.

You are talking about which dtpro.dll file?

Fair enough. I haven't come across any that fail, but I find it helpful to be able to use them easily without conversion. YMMV. Maybe I'm just lazy.

The one installed with DTPro: "C:\Program Files\DAEMON Tools Pro\dtpro.dll"
This file seems to contain everything that awxDTools looks for in daemon.dll, and I've been running it this way without an issue so far.

I thought you meant a dtpro.dll from somewhere else ;)
