Operating System: Windows 2000 SP4
Anti-virus Software: None

I have a fresh win 2k sp4 installation. I can mount/unmount images using version 3.47, 4.0, or 4.03-x86 using the taskbar icon, but from the command line I get the "unable to mount image..." error message from 4.x. Command line works just fine with 3.47. The image being mounted doesn't have any copy protection.

I realize this error appears numerous times in the forum, but I couldn't find one that seemed to match my situation. The closest was: http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/showthread.php?t=3398&highlight=kernel+mode
but I have SP4, and I tried the DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES hack, and I have none.

Check for extra spaces and post your entire command line here verbatim. You could try using 8.3 short (aka DOS style) filenames if your're trying to mount a file with a long name or that is many directories deep.

I have a win 2k sp2 installation and the same Problem: Command line works fine only with V 3.47 - none of the other versions!
I tried with long and short filenames - makes no difference.

commandline:
c:\Programme\DAEMON Tools>"C:\Programme\DAEMON Tools\daemon.exe" -mount 0,"c:\Reinh.ISO"

response:
"Unable to mount image. Unable to open file in kernel mode."

First deaktivate the secure mode, then try it this way:



CD C:\Programme\DAEMON Tools\
START daemon.exe -mount 0, "C:\Reinh.ISO"

That's an interesting way of doing it. BTW there cannot be a space after the 0 and the comma.

Thank you for your help. I tried the commandline you sent and it works. And it is because of the uppercase C:\ instead of c:\. Now, as I use a batch

start daemon.exe -unmount 0
START daemon.exe -mount 0, "%1"

there is no uppercase C:\ sent to the commandline. It is lowercase c:\!

This batch is a workaround to drag'n'drop the iso-files I want to load. What else could I use instead?
