View Full Version : Failed calling Createfile; GetLastError = 5

Hi, I am having a prolbem with installing Damone Tools 4.03HE(32bit). I was updating from 4.01 i think, and when i went to install/update to 4.03, i got the system file error that many others have been plauged with. My simple solution tot hat was to download the spdtinst_x86.exe from the daemon tools download section, and used it to remove the SPTD adapters through the command console via "spdtinst_x86.exe remove". Which worked fine and solved the "System File Error". And this brings me to my prolbem. I rebooted again after using the spdtinst_x86.exe to remove the drivers or whatever, and then proceeded to install Daemon Tools 4.03HE. I disabled my antivirus(norton systemworks 2006) beforehand. It brought me to the screen telling me its going to install the SPTD adapter or whatever and i said ok, and it worked fine, then told me i need to reboot to finish installing daemon tools.

This is where the real fun begins. So i reboot my macheine, and once it is rebooted i once again disable norton and continue with the install, which is when i get the error "Failed calling Createfile; GetLastError = 5 when it is about halfway through the install.

If anyone has any solutions or suggestions to help fix this prolbem, i would greatly appreciate them.
