Well I have 4.0 x86 installed and I try to upgrade to 4.03 x86 .
The system is Windows XP Pro SP2.

After I get STPD install message and click "OK" I almost immideatly get ""System file write error" (with "STPD setup V1.24 (C) 2004-2005 Duplex Secure Ltd." on top of the message box and everything exits.

I have Nero 6 installed , Daemon TOOLs 4.0 , Visual Studio 2003 and I do have MS Windows 2003 DDK installed but I am not using it.

Obviously setup cannot create file in System32\Drivers folder.

I got this error after letting daemon-tools "Update" my copy of v4

The installer said it was uninstalling daemon tools and then it started this.

If anyone has a fix or work around please let me know.

Here is what I did. First I uninstalled Dtools 4.0 then Alcohol120% Also. I then did a manual uninstall of A120% and Dtool drivers. I then also removed the SPTD driver. Then D4.03 installed fine, and after that so did A120%.

For those worried about these instructions. They are taken directly from the help FAQ of the A120% homepage and the dtools homepage. If you wish to check

To manually remove Alcohol, please adopt following steps:
1.run "regedit"
2.Find "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Uninstall\{E9F81423-211E-46B6-9AE0-38568BC5CF6F}", then delete that.
3.Find "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\32418F9EE1126 B64A90E8365B85CFCF6", then delete that.

Then to remove Alcohol driver you need to start Regedit then go to HKey_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Servic es here you should find the Keys for the Alcohol Driver in version 1.9.2.1705, 1.9.5.2722 or 1.9.5.2802 a347scsi and a347bus, or in version 1.9.5.3105 vax347s and vax347b, delete these Keys and remove corresponding files from Windows\System32\Drivers folder.

Re boot your PC.


-----------------------------------

UNINSTALLATION (Recommended):

Click Start
Select Settings
Click Control Panel
Double-click on Add/Remove Programs
Scroll and click on DAEMON Tools
Click Remove
UNINSTALLATION (Manual):

Enter device manager
In Windows 9x/ME, right-click on My Computer, and click Device Manager
In Windows NT/2000/XP, click Start, click Run, type devmgmt.msc, and click OK
Goto the System section
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)
Reboot your computer
Follow UNINSTALLATION (Recommended)

--------------------------------------
1. Boot in safe mode and press ESC key when you see on bottom line of display:
"Press ESC to cancel loading SPTD.sys". This will abort loading of SPTD layer.

To get around the "system file write error," all I had to do was remove windows\system32\drivers\sptd.sys, reboot, and then install 4.03.

I have same problem ( "system file write error," ) at Windows XP 64-bit
And i doesn't have Alcohole *% installed and file windows\system32\drivers\sptd.sys (or windows\system64\drivers\sptd.sys) not exist in my system :confused:
Also StartForce drivers (old or new file names) not installed at my system.

I think problem with DT 4.03 not related in general to existing some problematic drivers or programs :mad:

I dont think the daemon tool cant write into the folder "windows/system32/drivers/"
cause I removed the sptd.sys before I install daemon tool,
then reboot system
after that, I checked the the folder "windows/system32/drivers/", there was no sptd.sys in it. then I double clicked daemon tool v.403, this time worked, and ask me to reboot. before I clicked "ok", I checked the folder again, now there was a sptd.sys in it.
I think daemon tool installed that file into the folder.

after reboot, the daemon tool poped up again to continue install.

However this time failed, I got the error message "failed to open config key".

my wild guess is if there is no sptd.sys in the folder, the installer will create one and ask to reboot to continue. but if there is a sptd.sys then i will get error message.

I did another experiement:
after the 1st reboot, i went into safe mode and remove the sptd.sys the daemon tool created, and back to normal mode, the daemon tool continued, but this time it asked me to reboot again..............
hope this helps!
Thank again for all the developers and contributors :)

I'm on x64, in the event log i get:
\SystemRoot\SysWow64\Drivers\GEARAspiWDM.sys has been blocked from loading due to incompatibility with this system. Please contact your software vendor for a compatible version of the driver.

GEARAspiWDM.sys is not related to Daemon Tools.

Thanks a lot.
