Check in task manager if daemon.exe is running, if so end it, then try to remove -lang 1033 switch from desktop icon -> properties. If it works you can try it for autostart (registry), too.

Hi

I went into the files and removed the lang dll, but when I try to start it then all i get is an error message saying no language file selected.

Any other ideas?
BTW it is not running in task manager.

cheers

You should NOT remove the language dll - where did I say that?
If daemon.exe is not running, there seems to be a problem with autostart (registry) on your system. Does it start normally if you double click desktop icon?

Hi
OK, when I click the icon on the desktop, nothing happens. When I go to the daemon program folder and click on the exe icon, nothing happens. I have been through the repair / update procedure and still nothing happens.

I right clicked on the desktop icon and I couldnt find any way to remove the lang 1033 switch (not sure what that is), so I thought you meant to remove the dll so I did. I have put it back and done nothing else since you last posted.

I am really grateful for your help, and amazed at your patience, I know can be frustrating cos I often help people over at webmaster world and oscdox. But please bear with me, I am sure we will straghten it out.

Do you think it is worth uninstalling and going back to a previous version?

cheers

In properties of desktop icon you should see the command line:
C:\Program Files\D-Tools\daemon.exe -lang 1033 :?:

Hi

Thanks for that, but no, nothing happened. I deleted the switch, tried to use the shortcut on the desktop again, but no luck. Any other ideas?

looks like everyone has given up on us. I disabled my virus app, fixed the autoexec.nt file which appeared to be missing, repaired and still nothing.
This is not easy to uninstall either so I hope someone out there has an answer, cos I have done everything I can.

You and I cant be the only ones out there this has happened to, maybe the only ones persistent enough to post on the forum, so it would be a good idea if the gurus here could get it solved.
Cheers

Anti-virus Software: Norton Anti Virus 2002 8.07.17C
DAEMON Tools Version: 3.47

Same thing is happening to me. I install DT 3.47 and it seems to install ok. However the icon doesnt appear in the systray like other versions (I can install/run v3.44 ok) If I double click icon nothing happens, it doesnt load etc.

I have tried several times uninstalling/reinstalling. I can go back to v3.44 ok.

Any ideas?

Same problem was happening to me so I tried this and it worked for me, maybe it'll work for you:

1. Open Windows Task Manager (by Ctrl-Alt-Del)
2. On the Processes tab, locate daemon.exe
3. Click End Process button
4. Close Task Manager
5. Click the desktop shortcut for Daemon Tools
6. Tray icon loads (at least for me it did)

Hope it works for you.
