Hello

Just installed your program but cannot run it. Shortcut has been created on the Desktop but just sits there.

I have an IBM SCSI HD and run Adaptec SCSI is there a problem with this etup?

Just to be sure, you don't get the Daemon Tools icon in your system tray?

That would be new to me :mrgreen: If you don't see the tray icon check related thread in common problems and solutions forum.

Hello

There is no Daemon Tools icon sitting in the system tray. I've tried uninstalling and then installing again and zilch. The shortcut just sits on my Desktop mocking me.

Been to solutions forum can't see a solution there either.

Hello

Been to the website, done what needs to be done, still no Daemon Tools, but I do have a very simple answer to all this - goodbye Daemon Tools. So it's back to Virtual Drive, that does work.

Flashy, you keep replying to other people's threads. You've got 5 posts total in 5 threads now. I'd like to keep the discussion simpler.

Did you read the post entitled "Installed Daemon Tools, but the tray icon is missing/disappeared" in the Common Problems and Solutions forum?

Actually Daemon Tools should autostart after required reboot during installation.
So you don't see the tray icon? Then check related thread in common problems and solutions forum.

As I started this thread and eventually gave up trying to install Daemon Tools, perhaps somebody can tell me how to get rid of the virtual drive that the program created. You would think that it would have been deleted after uninstalling , but no the bloody thing is still there.

I do now know why the Daemon Tools icon could not be seen in the system tray. I had previously installed a utility that gets rid of the messenger icon, which is also preventing the Daemon Tools icon from being displayed.

Manual removal procedure is mentioned in thread about error 25002 in common problems and solutions forum; reboot after the procedure.

I don't know wheter to treat you people seriously enogh or what, but your solution to manual removal does not work.

I am not a programmer, so why do you not offer a solution to what is probably a very simple procedure. Can I suggest a course in customer relations?

Sure it does work. What problem do you have on your system?

Hello Copytroper

I'm sure it does somewhere on planet earth, but not in my real world. After moving to the error code support you suggested I ended back where I started from.

I have one simple question, are we dealing with robots or real human beings?

You may have noticed the same responses that you could have found by using the forum search function. We get a lot of questions here everyday and most people ask the same ones over and over and the most common answers solve most people's problems, however in your case after double checking you've done all the normal fix procedures, I'm sure people will try and eventually suggest working solutions. It may just take some time and more forum questions and responses until it happens.
