Hi,

I have a huge problem with this new DT4. SPTD drivers installed correctly, but after the restart it asks me to install some scsi/raid controller. So I follow its lead and do what it asks me to do, but after this controller is installed I get an error saying "Unable to add adapter. Device problem 12." and other window which claims that it has some probs with ejecting this controller (?).

My sys is WXP with SP2.
Can someone give me any advice what is wrong and what I need to do ? :) Thanks.

Uninstall DAEMON Tools 4. Reboot. Then reinstall and before you reboot open the device manager and post what you see. Do you see any items with a yellow exclamation mark (check under DVD/CD-ROM drives and also under SCSI and RAID controllers)?

Once you're done checking the device manager, you'll of course reboot (as the installer prompted) and try to use DAEMON Tools 4 normally. Also, see if the entries in the device manager changed after rebooting.

Done that already. AFAIR this new SCSI/RAID Controller got the yellow exclamation mark. I'll check it once more when I return from work, but I'm pretty sure that this is the one.

This is impossible because just after the reboot the SCSI/Raid Controller drivers are not present in the system and DT4 starts asking me to instlla them again and the whole thing goes back right to the point where it started.

thats the problem the device manger says that the scsi driver has error code 12. Which means not enough ressources for this driver ( My guess on translation form german :) )
And as long the driver dosn't work dt4 will not work I guess :)

I've got also the same problem (also Standard PC).

When running daemon tools it seems they're trying to install mentioned driver, it appear in system under scsi/raid controller with yellow exclamation mark, after reboot the driver is gone.
It seems like it was uninstalled due to failure.

May be if we install this driver externaly it'll be okay but I don't know where can I get one.

I have also come accress this problem and finally found a solution.

I would appear that it lies with ACPI or at least lack there of.
If Windows had been installed as a standard PC and not an ACPI Uniprocessor PC, then there is no hope to have DT work.

Here is a link to Microsoft's support site with instructions to get ACPI working.

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=299340

You may want to read all the fine print and notes before you start.

Once ACPI is installed, remove all Daemon tools files and reinstall. Should work like a charm.

Don't try to activete ACPI on an installed windows. It's gonne mess up your system :)
Only way to do it is to reinstall windows. But just for dt4?

Yes, but there is no way that "ACPI Uniprocessor PC" work here with: agp card + sb live + scsi pci controler + pctv tuner + dvb ss2 + dvb ss1 + all onboard resources (usb hubs, sound, sata, ata, lan, serial, paralel...) :)

it didn't work at all, after installer copied first files to disk
and try to ?reboot? or what it is doing, it hanged up. Same
problem with WinXP. I hope they fix the issue, Daemon Tools is cool :)

Check in BIOS if there's an ACPI option you've to enable. Actually all modern boards should support ACPI function, quite some also IO APIC function.

Yes, I've checked that, no matter what the setting was, it crashed. I wonder if it's due to MB.

All ACPI functions of my MB are enabled. After enableing i get error code 22 once. After a second reboot error code 12 was back again :/

The ACPI functions are still enabled but i did not get DT4 to work...

it isnt possible to change a running windows from "standard pc" to "acpi uniprozessor"... u must do a complete new install of the OS... before u do, check the bios if ACPI is enabled....

APIC isnt needed.... its only for more irqs...but windows does share the 16 irqs...

One thing: ALCOHOL 3105 asks to install this same fucking driver that D4 asks! Admins PLEASE find out what is the problem with the D4. The only bug is with D4, isnt with the SCSI, because the Alcohol SCSI Host blabla installed without a problem.

Is the same name driver!

Both programs install drivers for virtual SCSI controllers but I don't know anything about Alcohol drivers being the same as DAEMON Tools 4 drivers. Also I don't think they have the same name in the filesystem or in device manager.

I too get this problem. After starting the installation it tells me to restart to complete. I do this then resume the installation. After it completes, my computer detects a new hardware device. At the same time it makes a sound like a USB device was just attached. After trying to install it, 3 errors pop up. One is the topic error. One is a generic one. The other I think has to do with daemon tools not working.

I have a MSI Nforce 4 motherboard, Athlon 64 3700, 2 GB RAM, One SATA 2 HD, one IDE HD, 1 IDE DVD-ROM.

No point in having a 4.0 if it's not useable now is it?

actually Crucible I believe it was beta tested first, however if there was a handful of testers and each of those testers didn't experience this problem they would have never known.

what I find strange is that 4.0 WAS working fine then I dropped on an image of my drive to an earlier date, installed some apps and stuff and voila it doesn't install and run right anymore.

This ISN'T a HD image problem because I've imaged my drive many times and DT 4 worked at one point. my only guess is that it has to do with an update or windows, or some other piece of software...

I wish them luck in fixing this, I was kinda looking forward to 4.0...

This may help but in the UNINSTALLATION (Manual): step 3. Delete 'PnP BIOS Extension' - If you unsure whether to delete it, goto the driver tab and click driver details, then check the version of the driver (should be same version as your DAEMON Tools).

My version is 3.47 not 4.00 or what ever it should be. Also the IRQ is set to 00. Which is not good either. Hope this helps

you don't have to reinstall windows from scratch. All you have to do is activate ACPI on the BIOS then insert the windows xp cd and it will ask u if u want to make a new installation or repair the old one, just choose repair the old one and it will work.

it worked for me.

Also if u got a problem with sptd "system file error" all u have to do is uninstall the starforce drivers. that's all

09.12.2005, 01:05

there must be something called ACPI (IPCA in some MOBOs) in the "Power Management" menu, almost all MOBOs have ACPI so it would be weird yours don't have it.

HA! Of course it works great, Seven, you reinstalled windows... :)

Yeah, juanm, I'm a dork, I do have ACPI in the BIOS, but i'm still not screwing with it. :)

juanm
09.12.2005, 20:39
You won't screw up if u activate ACPI, however if u activate ACPI with windows already installed of course it won't work because the devices are already installed without ACPI. So if u "repair" your installation of Windows it will now detect ACPI and will ONLY install the devices with ACPI without touching your other stuff

i followed the instruction Seven suggested, but it didnt work. i reinstalled WinXP and pressed F6 when XP told me to do, but there was no response. Then i pressed F2, and XP told me to insert a floppy disk.( i have no floppy driver) The installation went on with no list to choose acpi as you said. What is the problem?

BTW:I have SATA disk & amd cpu. Conequently, i used a version of WinXP with SATA drivers added.
Sorry for my poor Engilish 2.

10.12.2005, 10:35
Hehe xD

I`d changed this ACPI option in BIOS and the install new system - I didn`t lose my files, but when I`m switching on computer, it ask me to choose system. On first I have "Standart PC", on second "ACPI etc.". So everything works ^^

lupin: you don't have to press F6 just activate ACPI in the BIOS and reinstall or repair windows, ACPI should be detected automatically

i chose S1(POS) in submenu 'ACPI Standby state' of BIOS, and i reinstalled WinXP. But there was still no list for me to choose ACPI while installing. When are ACPI supposed to be detected? Before or after the agreement license? Before or after copying system files from Winxp disc to harddisk?

you don't have to select ACPI from a list. ACPI will be recognized since the windows installer loads the files. You don't have to select ACPI from a list because this is the way the devices are installed. I mean if u have ACPI enabled but windows don't install the files with ACPI then it would be unstable, so is like an obligation to windows to install the devices with ACPI.

Just install windows with ACPI enabed, let the installation finish and u will see results.

I cannot use ACPI, because it groups my audio card with EVERYTHING else & I need it separate. The fix is to switch to Standard PC, which I just did.

Anything else I can do?

Hi everyone.
XPSP2+last update
When installing v4 deamon tools get the message device problem 12. From your post has heard that problem in invalid IRQ.
In biose function ASPI was enabled but in device manager was standard pc :confused:
Reinstall windows not for me, so i repaired windows with boot cd
After this in device manager appeared ASPI Uniprocessor PC.
BUT as soon as I began installation dt4 again happened new shit
"This program will install SCSI Through Direct (SPTD) layer on your computer.
Waarning - SPTD is not compatible with kernel mode debuggers (soft-ice,Windbg etc.!)

Then I continue and I get the System file error"

in detail this is described here (http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/showthread.php?t=6775&highlight=file+system+error)

:) further I have done following:
1.Remove all starforce driver here (http://www.onlinesecurity-on.com/protect.phtml?c=55)
2. Reboot to save mode, while rebooting to save mode Press ESC on any sptd* driver loads
3.Remove sptd driver from device manager (hidden device)
4.Go to ../system32/drivers/ and delete any sptd* files
5.Open registy editor and search for "sptd", when found - delete. but some sptd-thing can is not deleted (not terribly beside me)
6. Reboot to normal mode.
7. Run Install. Reboot.
8. Finish install, have fun

:mad: I think problem in both events one and the same , what that anti-pirate protection... not the most best:D
excuse me for my english

Thats a good post Jorik; I wish it worked for me. I tried doing a 2nd installation of XP just to see if I could get a different HAL setup without any problems. Choosing either of the ACPI options over my default MPS Uni results in complete system shutdown after a few seconds.

i bet u had alcohol 120% installed, if this is your case then uninstall it for a while because it will reinstall stpd everytime u restart windows (as far as i know)

i did have this problem with stpd, this is what i did.

1- Uninstall Alcohol 120% (if installed) (you don't need to delete stpd because it is uninstalled along with Alcohol)
2- Delete StarForce drivers
3- Install Daemon Tools v4
4- Install Alcohol 120%
5- Enjoy!!!

Hmm.. I seem to recall in windows xp that hardware configurations (or at least the "basic configuration" presets) could be changed manually in the registry?

If the problem is simply the virtual device wanting to camp on an invalid IRQ but xp in all its infinite wisdom believes us too stupid to be trusted with configuring devices manually wouldnt forcibly changing its irq and IO range be a possible solution?

Fray
17.12.2005, 07:44
Cant device configurations or at least the "basic configuration" presets be altered in the registry?

If its just a matter of setting it to a valid IRQ and IO range then reinstalling windows seems rather drastic.

2,Standatd PC

Select Standart PC and update drivers.Select dont connect to win update > User choose driver ( second option ) > dont search,a i will choose from list a select Standart PC again.
After update first driver.Update have same way as driver two,but only one change,u must select driver "Personal Computer with interface ACPI".
Restart.
A now start deamon a go play :D

Hi

I am having problems installing dt4. I install it and it tells me to restart. After the comp restarts I get 2 error messages:
unable to add adapter device problem 12 and
The device SCSI/RAID Host Controller cannot be stopped right now. Try stopping this device later.
When I check in device manager the SCSI/RAID controller has an exclamation mark. When I troubleshoot it tells me that the controller has not enough free resources as it is conflicting with STANDARD PC and SYSTEM TIMER.



I am trying to install Prince of Persia the two thrones so I need daemon tools v4 for it to work. Can anyone tell me how I can solve this problem without having to format the computer or if I can use daemon tools v 3.7 or any other program for pop ttt to work without having to uplug physically the drives????

I have windows XP professional 5.1 Service Pack 2.

I would appreciate any help or any daemon tools 4 update to fix this problem ( seems a lot of people are having this problem). Thanks dt team.

The problem with error 12 is that it is INDEED not enough resources on your computer. DT4 requires real I/O range and shareable interrupt to work properly - same error you may get if you will try to insert some real hardware expansion board that requires interrupt.
We will think about workaround for this problem.

Thats odd Venom. Considering I only have a video card, onboard LAN/Sound/USB, 1 CDROM, and 1 Harddrive it seems like I should have more than enough resources to go around. I often think to myself if I could run DT4 on a Win98 machine and force a interrupt & memory range that everything would work. Unfortunately, WinXP was made by control freaks.

i launched the setup of Daemon Tools 4.0.3... first it wanted to install some scsi stuff and reboot, i did... after reboot setup finished and started launching d-tools and then these three error windows appeared. the first two of them at once and the third in a moment later... Translation (pls excuse my tranlastion coz i have no idea how they sound in real english version of windows): 1) Ejecting of Host SCSI Controller or RAID has come to problems 2) Activity of Host SCSI Controller or RAID cannot be shuted down at the moment. Pls try to shut them down later. 3) Change of system settings 4) Windows has finished instalation of new devices. Software of the device requires computer restart. New settings are taking affect after the computer reboot. Reboot now? Yes. No.

when i click NO and try to launch d-tools again, the process of these three windows repeats. when i click YES, system reboots and after restart while launching d-tools these three windows reapears again. and again and again...

d-tools 3.47 are working with no problem...

im suspecting of this problem having system installed on sata2 hdd...??? I ran d-tools 4.0.3 before (system on uata/133 hdd) then i connected the sata2 hdd as a second hdd (device manager showed him as a external hdd), stil no problems, but when i formated and installed the system into the sata2 hdd, i wasnt able to run them anymore... i think becoz the device manager already shows that i have a scsi controller (sata2 hdd with system within pretends to be an scsi device) so the scsi device cannot be shut down and the d-tools launched...??? is that correct?

im running Windows XP x86 Pro SP2 with all updates via microsoftupdate (incl. .net 1.1 sp1 and .net 2.0)
burning soft NERO 6.6.0.18 (no other like easy cd creator), burning within winwows explorer disabled, no other sw like d-tools

Once ACPI is installed, remove all Daemon tools files and reinstall. Should work like a charm.
http://img238.imageshack.us/img238/528/onairsign7ir.png
This is the correct solution I already have in the past few days ago.
But remember.. once you Uninstall DT makes sure that all tracks and any remains on Hard Drive(s) gone or do the delete if any find..
Check as well under \system32\ the Minidump and empty if there is any thing inside.
Reboot System a couple times and then Re-Install the DT and all will works pretty smoth.
Now during the Re-Installation it may shows some Errors saying: "The installation was interupted.. can not to continue.
Try again!" - so go for again but gave a short time break when the installation process start.. because the DT is checking the existence of all drives installed here.. include a Floppy Drive which often what I find is the problems of unsuccessful installation and the pop-up Errors when you too fast going with the mouse pointer clickin.
The whole above problem I have and going ahead till get them works as expected. http://img128.imageshack.us/img128/1923/secretbath3lz.gif

The problem with error 12 is that it is INDEED not enough resources on your computer. DT4 requires real I/O range and shareable interrupt to work properly - same error you may get if you will try to insert some real hardware expansion board that requires interrupt.
We will think about workaround for this problem.

I don't want to sound like I know more than you do, cause I don't but...

The real problem is that you worked around black listing of SCSI devices? and added the new version of Dtools into the registry as a ACPI device, but your relying on Windows to modify the IRQs, as Standard PC users CAN modify the I/O but can not Modify the IRQ's since theres no INF available that tells windows that it can use more than 1 irq. AKA Windows HAL is re-allocating resources as I stated before, but since the ACPI devices only use 1 dedicated IRQ there is no chance for Standard PC Users to run this program.

Did I grasp that properly?

Development
07.02.2006, 07:07
Yes, for standard PC configuration with not enough interrupts it is no chance to run. It depends in fact on HAL which manages IRQ resources. At least one shareable interrupt must be present on system so SCSI controller can use it.
If Standard PC has one - it will work too. ACPI just has more effective interrupt management that is why at least one shareable interrupt is guaranteed and DT4 works fine.

Fray
09.02.2006, 07:25
If its just a matter of building an inf to allow you to specify a different IRQ or using a reg patch to manually adjust the HAL whats the holdup?

The system IRQ is about the only one that cant be adjusted to make room.. not knocking the software but that seemed to be a poor choice of IRQs to assign to a device thats not core to start with.

Have the same problem. Had problem with ACPI on motherboard so I've turned it for while installing windows.

After reading this thread I am still not sure. Is there a fix expected to this problem from DAEMON TOOLS? Can they fix it? Or is reinstalling windows/try to enable ACPI the only expected way to do it?

norc
10.02.2006, 17:47
It would be hard to make a fix that will leave all the functionality of DT and not use IRQ since the whole idea of apearing as a real drive is built on it apearing as a scsi device which requires a free IRQ. ACPI has been around for years and almost every system supports it since it is currently the only way you can have more then 15 devices that use IRQ in your comp. ACPI actually shares them between devices. Most of you have the problem becasu your bios factory settings were set to ACPI disabled (don't ask me why ask the vendor). You can however fix this without crashing your system. All you have to do is enable all acpi settings in bios and do a repair install of windows. This will leave all your settings and programs intact! (not recovery console, repair installation when asked where to install).

I suggest you uninstall DT and SPTD before doing this. To uninstall SPTD use sptdinst in downloads section!

IMPORTANT: This however will not work if you have any one component that is not ACPI compliant! (if you don't know which one it is then just pull out all the extension cards :) ) In this case there is not much you can do since standard PC won't allow IRQ's to be shared. You will get the same problem if you try to install some new hardware that requires an IRQ. (additional ports, controlers, sound cards etc.) You will have to remove something!!! This is the whole reason why ACPI was introduces (and some other fancy stuff like computer shutdown :) ). Fot those of you that have this problem my suggestion is "GET AN ACPI COMPLIANT COMPONENT!".

norc
10.02.2006, 18:25
Although I could be wrong in respect that at least on my system the DT SCSI/RAID controler settled on the same IRQ as ACPI system and may be looking for it and won't use others that is something the designers can figure out!

I've been fighting with this for a couple of weeks now. My story:

I put together a new system October last year:

AMD Athlon64 4400+ Dual-Core CPU
Gigabyte K8N SLI Motherboard
2GB RAM
XFX NVidia 7800GT Video
Latest NVidia drivers, latest BIOS, etc.

and I downlaoded WinXP64 trial version from Microsoft.

I got the v4.03 version of Daemon tools, and everything worked fine.

My 'trial copy' of WinXP64 ran out, and it said I needed to upgrade to the official release.

I upgraded with an official copy, and I got an error about not being able to remove spdt.sys (I forget the specifics) during the upgrade.

After the upgrade, everything worked fine, with the exception of Daemon Tools. I uninstalled, and reinstalled, and then I got the dreaded 'Unable to add adapter. Device problem 12.'.

I've folowed this thread ever since, and all the suggestions (removing spdt, reinstalling, ACPI stuff, etc.) but nothing makes a difference.

My ACPI driver shows:

"ACPI Multiprocessor x64-based PC", and always did (even when Daemon tools worked). All my drivers/BIOS are the latest available, and I've got IRQs to spare.

I've removed and reinstalled several times, and my error has now changed - I get an 'Unable to add adapter. Device problem 32.' error now...

Is there any hope?

:confused:

Having the same problem here as well.

Dtools V3.47 works like a dream.

Dtools V4.0-4.3 both refuse to work, always popping up with this Device problem #12 when I reboot the PC.

I find that the Standard PC option creates a much more stable environment for my PC, as opposed to ACPI. Reinstalling the OS so that it's under ACPI is out of the question for me.

Is this issue a high priority on the fix list, or are the non-acpi users just better off sticking to 3.47 and/or finding another program?

Just ran into this problem myself and I have yet to see any real official response that anyone is working on this problem (of course might be in a thread elsewhere... but I have been looking). Is there any way around this? I've tried everything within reason and the only thing really feasible is to reload v3 as that actually works and seems to use a different method of setting the virtual drives up. Seems like many people are having this prob. Alcohol120% latest version does a very similar kind of thing. It's a dark day indeed.

I tried installing this on an old system. Unfortunately, it's old enough that it lacks proper ACPI functions. Thing is, I can't afford to buy a new processor + mb right now (not even a new old one that's really cheap.) Besides, this is precicely 100% perfect for my needs. It's just supposed to be a carryable HTPC/retrogaming system, which is where Daemon-Tools comes in since it's what I need for emulators and some old games that require the original cds. If I carried all those discs with me when I carry the system, I'd break my back.

Anyway, I suppose the functionality of the old one is enough for me. I'm not worried about blacklists since most of these games were before protections even existed beyond "just check to see if the supposed CD drive can be written to." It's still terribly annoying, especially since it's so unclear what the problem is.


It would be hard to make a fix that will leave all the functionality of DT and not use IRQ since the whole idea of apearing as a real drive is built on it apearing as a scsi device which requires a free IRQ. ACPI has been around for years and almost every system supports it since it is currently the only way you can have more then 15 devices that use IRQ in your comp.

...

Fot those of you that have this problem my suggestion is "GET AN ACPI COMPLIANT COMPONENT!".
Yeah, uhm, you're mistaken I'm afraid. Daemon Tools < 4.xx has been chugging along just fine on old systems for years, and by your logic it never worked on any of those systems. Actually, I scrolled back a bit, and someone explicitely went over the details of the problem. The problem isn't that ACPI is the only way, just that it's the best way so the other way wasn't focused correctly on. As was mentioned, it needs a properly written INF file so it can support a different IRQ and then it should be possible to correct it. I have quite a number of devices stuffed into this system and they all get along just fine without ACPI. The only problem I have is that most things are too braindead to use APM to shut off power, so I have to physically press the switch to shutdown (I might add that Win98SE correctly shuts off the system, so this reliance on ACPI with no support for APM as a backup is a step down in the case of Win2k.)

As for buying new stuff, well, we can't all be as rich as you must be since you feel money is so free we can all run and buy new components just for Daemon Tools. Please feel free to pass along some of the riches you so enjoy our way, I could really put it to good use, I assure you.

To follow up my previous post, I solved my problem.

To do this, I blew my system away, and reloaded it from scratch - this allowed Dtools 4.03 to work, but at the cost of a day's worth of reloading my system. I still don't unerstand why it didn't work before, since basically my system is using the same software all around.

I've had this same issue with Daemon Tools, ever since I switched to a SATA HDD on my Abit NF7-sv2. I have a Silicon Image Raid Controller 3112 already installed to manage my HDD.

I'm totally new to SATA. I have the RAID controller enabled under my SATA controller in my BIOS, and when I installed XP, I put in a floppy disk and had to selest my RAID driver to install. If I try to disable my RAID controller, I can't boot - it says insert system disk. Now, say I reformatted, this time with that controller disabled in my BIOS, and without inserting that RAID disk - would WIndows see a empty NTFS drive even if it was SATA and be able to install to it? Honestly, I'd hate to have to reformat again, but I need Daemon Tools.

This is exactly what happens in Windows at the moment (I copied and pasted this from someone else's discription as it EXACTLY my problem):
1) Problem Ejecting SCSI/RAID Host Controller: The device 'SCSI/RAID Host Controller' cannot be stopped right now. Try stopping the device again later.

2) DAEMON TOOLS: Unable to add adapter. Device problem 12.

3) DAEMON TOOLS: Invalid Device.

4) Windows XP then tells me I have a new device installed and need to restart my computer. Each time, no matter how many times I reboot.


Any help will be greatly appreciated, because I have many ISO backups of my discs, and I do not feel like always having to use the original disc. And I don't want to have to burn the ISO's I make to test them. SO please, if you know anything that would help me, I'd love to hear it.

Thanks,
D. Wells

"ACPI Multiprocessor x64-based PC", and always did (even when Daemon tools worked). All my drivers/BIOS are the latest available, and I've got IRQs to spare.

I've removed and reinstalled several times, and my error has now changed - I get an 'Unable to add adapter. Device problem 32.' error now...

Is there any hope?

Hi there,

I encountered exactly the same behaviour after an update of x64 eval to x64 retail. Have a look at this thread in german language, if you're capable to read that. There's also a bunch of screenshots.

http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/t10235-scsiraid-probleme-mit-dt-403-nach-winxp-upgrade-x64-eval-gt-x64-retail.html

I think we'll have to wait for a new release?

The only thing what I not yet tried is to disable uninstall third party SCSI/RAID drivers (Sil 3114). Will that do the trick?

My Mainboard is Asus A8N-SLI-Deluxe.

OK found the solution it was the non ACPI Computer Bug!
1st uninstall deamon tool
2nd see if u have a ACPI Parameter in The Bios first
3rd Use the Install CD to boot and type at the F6 promt
F5 button to choose the ACPI Single or Multiprocessor
then go on like U normaly would install Win XP then the
Installer will find the Actual Installation of XP then just choose Rapair and go on.
after that u have a ACPI Processor in ur Device Manager
4th Reinstall DT
5th Be happy ! :D

I got already "ACPI-Uniprocessor x64 based PC" in the device Manager.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309283/EN-US/

But there is only hal.dll, but no Halaacpi.dll.

Is this a special behaviour of x64 edition or 2003 x64?

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop which originally had XP Home installed. Under that configuration, DT 4.0.3 worked like a champ.

I then used an upgrade cd to upgrade to XP Pro. After that, I got the dreaded "Unable to add adaptor. Device problem 32" error message. I've followed most of the suggestions in this thread to no avail.

ACPI shows up in my BIOS, so I don't believe that's the issue.

I don't understand German, but I looked at the German thread anyway and saw that the screenshots there described my issue exactly.

Any other suggestions out there? I've wasted many hours on this issue already and am starting to get frustrated! :(

Thanks,

Hi Eric,

I think, there isn't yet any possibility to get around this issue, than waiting for a new release which offers a bugfix.

Like I already mentioned: The one thing I didn't tried yet is to unplug/diable other third party raid adapter like my sil3114 onboard raid controller, and reinstall it after an eventually successful install of daemon-tools 4.03 x64.

I suggest to give up searching for a solution, because that would be a waste of time and I'm afraid that would be a real frustrating mission impossible too...

1. uninstall daemon tools and the sptd.sys using sptdinst_x64.exe remove
2. reboot
3. run regedit delete ALLE! referance to sptd and dtscsi (for those keys you can't delete, just delete the content eksept the (Default) key)
4. reboot in safe mode
5. run sptdinst_x64.exe add
6. reboot
7. install daemon tools v4.03
8. you are done and happy :D

it might work for xp 32 as vel eksept use a defrent sptdinst

sorry for eny bad spelling i am a Dane :)

See my post about this problem here.
http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/showthread.php?t=11560

I refuse to believe there is not a software solution for this problem. I can uninstall daemon-tools 4 and install 3 and it will work fine. I don't use ACPI because the windows ACPI handling sucks, I have always trused the system BIOS more. I have never ran into an application that requires ACPI to function correctly.

This problem is easy to reproduce for all the DT developers. Just install windows with all ACPI functions disabled in your system bios. Then try to install DT.
There are hundreds of posts here with people having this problem and probably thousands actually having the issue.

Rather than telling all them to reinstall windows and waste several hours of their life why not just fix the problem with DT4.

Please investigate further and save the world thousands of hours of un-necssary windows re-install time.

my only guess is that the low-level implementation of the virtual scsi device has problems with the bios handling the IRQ-Ressources. dunno if the problem can be solved that easily. but at least it would be nice to hear from the dt-developers if they are aware of the problem and have thought about it. re-installing windows can't be the only solution, at least it isn't for me.

21.06.2006, 02:01
Have you people simply tried doing a repair install after enabling ACPI in the BIOS? It replaces all the system files from the CD but (in almost all cases) leaves your programs intact. In most cases, this will fix Windows issues without requiring a full reinstall.

Jito--no we haven't, lol, I believe that besides physical limitations due to hardware restrictions (aka perfomance and crap) are the only thing that can't be fix through software implementation.

There has to be a way around this without RISKING my entire computer--I don't need to reformat, my computer's working fine--but I do need a working Daemon tools! lol

hi,
you can change standart pc installation too acpi with acronis trueimage +acronis universal restore.

1,install acronis true image and backup your standart pc system

2,boot cd with acronis trueimage and acronis universal plugin

3, load image(standart pc image) and restore with acronis universal restore


after reboot windows starts with acpi

install daemon tools 4.0.3

The error is: "This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)"

I have a Silicon Image Sil 3112 SATARaid Controller, so that's the one that's eating up my resources.

Same problem with Onboard HighPoint Tech Raid Controller and running Raid(0) cluster.

there were no problems during the 2 installation steps (before and after the reboot), and i got the DT trayicon.

when i clicked the the tray icon i got a "invalide device" message box. checking the hardwaresettings i found the yellow "!" and the same "no free resources" message at the details.

im running in "Standart-PC" mode to fix some IRQ issuses with TVcard.

at the moment im using the IRQs, 0,1,5,6,8,10,11,12,13,14

i disabeled the serial and paralell ports at bios to get more free IRQs.
IRQ 2,3,4,7,9,15 are free afaik so there should be no real resource problem for DT 4.06

11.10.2006, 17:25
This prob is gonna be fixed soon.

I seriously hope so after slogging through this huge thread. I have discovered there really is no fix for me. I have an older computer with no money to buy a newer one... ie No acpi.

4.06 does not work for me. DT still wants to use irq 0

I have a similar problem.

However, I have a problem when I reboot it freeze's and I have to run safe mode, system restore *sigh*.

DT works once I get into my pc I also get the SCSI/ Raid host controller ! in the device manager. It auto detects but finds nothing then states that my system may be unstable, which it is.

I now keep my pc on all the time although when it crash's it becomes a real song and dance to get it back up.

So I will also be watching this thread.

Oh I lost 70Gig of games formatting thinking I had some Virus that was affecting my boot :-( until I stumbled upon this thread while searching for a fix. It was time for a clean out I spose lol.

So I will be watching as well. Unless I have a different problem that someone knows the answer too.

I was wondering if the ACPI needs to be uniprocessor in order for it to work with DT? My ACPI is on but it is set as ACPI PC, not the aforementioned ACPI uniprocessor. It was my understanding that the uniprocessor ACPI was for a system setup which supports dual processors but currently uses a single processor and that the ACPI PC setting was for a basic system without dual processor support ie: my currrent laptop.

I had the same problem today and after digging around the net i gathered some bits of this and that and got it fixed.

I have ABIT NF7-S MB and i use SATA HDD. Not sure if that info is important but anyway.

First of all this solution might not work for you at all or may do something to your system that will prevent it from operating normaly so proceed at your own risk.

Here is what i did.
1. Uninstall Daemon Tools. (Even if you did not finish the instalation. If you got to this error means its on your system and can be removed via uninstall).
2. Reboot even if it doesn't ask you.
3. After reboot go [OS dir]\System32\Drivers\ and find anything that says 'sptd.sys' and 'sptdXXX.sys' delete those files. (Do note that i have uninstalled my other image/burning software. You just might want to do the same. Not sure if that was important.)
4. My MB uses 'Silicon image SiL 3112 SATA Raid Controller dirvers'. Yours might differ. Run devmgmt.msc (Device Manager). Go 'SCSI and RAID controllers'. I had Silicon image SiL 3112 SATA Raid Controller there respectively. Again you might have something else there. Uninstall it.
5. Reboot.
6. After reboot windows will probably install the drivers again. Mine did at least and without any fuss.
7. Launch daemon tools installer and install daemon tools.

After i did all of the above daemon tools installed just fine and launched without any errors. And i did not reinstall my OS.

As always this might work for you or it might now. It might even do something unpredictable and screw everything up so try only if you REALLY are sure that you can afford loosing stuff.

Hope this stuff helps alot of you.

I too, had the "Unable to add Adapt..." crap. I tried each of the solutions given here to no avail. Then, just on a whim, I went and looked at my services, specifically, the services I had disabled in my efforts to streamline my OS. I had disabled the "Intel Matrix Storage Driver" service since I was not setting up a SATA RAID in my machine. Maybe it's just a fluke or something, but I turned it back on, and DT started up without a hitch.

Just thought I'd add another possible solution. Hope it helps someone.
