Thread: New WinXPx64 update breaks Daemon 4.03x64!

  1. #1

    Default New WinXPx64 update breaks Daemon 4.03x64!

    I have had Daemon up and running ever since i had WinXP x64 installed. However, upon installing the newly released
    - "Update for Windows XP x64 Edition (KB914784)"
    which boasts
    -"improved Kernel patch protection" Daemon seems to be unable to successfully initialize upon starting the OS.
    This update was released today, June 13, 2006.

    I forgot the exact text of the initialization error, but upon booting it says that Daemon tools failed to initialize and that daemon requires Win2k+ and not to use a kernel debugger.

    The obvious solution now, which i have already done, is not install this update. However, it would be greatly appreciated if you could update Daemon to work around this new security.

    Thanks, AllUltima

    Default Solution??

    I had the same problem after the recent update of microsoft patches i did (

    It seems the problem on my system is caused by a patch by Microsoft which causes problems with SPTD. It seems this part of the software has problems with the kernel update.

    For my system (windows xp x64) the problem is caused by patch :

    Update for Windows XP x64 Edition (KB914784)
    Date last published: 6/13/2006
    Install this update to improve Kernel Patch Protection. Kernel patch protection in versions of Windows for x64-based systems protects code and critical structures in the Windows kernel from modification by unknown code or data. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer.

    You can uninstall this patch in c:\windows\$NtUninstallKB914784$\spuninst and run spuninst.exe

    I must warn you that it might a security risk to downgrade but hey i want to have my daemon tools running

    After rebooting my problem went away.

    If someone can find the windows xp version, please reply and try to uninstall that patch and tell us if it does the trick. O it might be handy to look in the uninstalldir of the patch, it should have a ntoskrnl.exe file in it.

    To really solve this issue, people need to fix the SPTD to work with the new ntoskrnl.exe.

    I agree AllUtlima, i just post the same info on this forum too.
    After a bunch of updates i figured out which patch caused it.

    I have more info on how to install this patch on the x64 platform :

    Yep, This just happened to me too. Hopefully it's a easy fix for daemon tool devs.

    Hey I also got XP x64 and have the same Error message.
    Before I patched x64 everything worked fine. So it's definitly the new micro$oft patch.

    we are aware of this bullshit already. As soon as we can say
    more about it, I will reply here. Until then, please keep this
    thread clean as good as it gets. Do only post here when
    you have new vital information!

    what exactly is written in your syslog? (SPTD-related)

    Dunno if that is what you are looking for.. I'll try and deinstall that update, cauz i already installed (Then deinstalled DT4, and when trying to reinstall, no go )

    edit: ok, i deinstalled the update, reinstalled DT4 and awxDTools, everything runs smoothly now... so it really is that update

    what does your syslog report - at least SPTD-driver should
    mention something

    thx, we already found issue. It requires alot of work, therefore
    we can't safely determine when fix is available. For sure SPTD
    needs update -> work is already in progress. I hope we can
    provide a hotfix soon.
