    On a fresh install of the x64 RC2, DT works great: no error message, no need to changes files.

    Great job !

    This program requires at least Windows 2000 with SPTD 1.28 or higher.
    Kernel debugger must be activated.
    So I thought upgrading Vista has overwritten some things so installing Daemon Tools again may fix. However I cant install Daemon Tools, because setup quits without a message after I click "OK" at SPTD install warning message. Also I cannot uninstall it since its uninstall information is somehow lost during Vista upgrade.

    1.try to delete file c:\widnows\system32\drivers\sptd.sys
    2.reinstall dt

    I have the same error as Dbl2010 except I am using 5733 x86 32 bit.

    I upgraded from Vista build 5728 to 5744. I already had Daemon Tools 4.06 installed but it did not give me the drive letters (refer to posts about 5728). I knew a new version of Vista was coming, so I did not bother trying any of the fixes in the other topic and just waited till 5744 came out. When I did the upgrade, I got the error message mentioned earlier.

    Code:
    Initialization error 0.
    This program requires at least Windows 2000 with SPTD 1.28 or higher.
    Kernel debugger must be activated.
    I tried reinstalling Daemon Tools 4.06 (as administrator) and get the SPTD warning, but after that nothing happens. Everytime I reboot the computer I get the Initialization error. I tried renaming the file c:\widnows\system32\drivers\sptd.sys
    to sptd_old.sys as mentioned in the previous post and it still would not install (still starts the install process, get the warning then nothing). I tried rebooting after that, still got the initialization error message. In fact if i try and load daemon tools manually, i get the same error message. If I try to uninstall the tools it says "setup is unable to validate instalation."
    Anybody who has any thoughts or help on this problem would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

    Default Problem with installation

    I upgraded from Media Center 2005 to RC1 and forgot to remove daemon tools 4.03 which is not compatible with build 5600. In any case, I had the same problem with removing and getting the newer version installed. Following the advice of this post, I removed the sptd.sys file. As well, a registry search found two references to it in the "last known good" section of the registry. I found them in:

    HKLM\system\currentcontrolset001\services\sptd

    HKLM\system\currentcontrolset002\services\sptd

    I searched for "sptd.sys" to find them, and then deleted both values. Additionally, the initialization error can be removed by disabling the daemon tools from trying to load at logon with msconfig or a tool like autoruns from sysinternals.com.

    After that, I rebooted the machine and ran daemon 4.06 setup with no issues.

    Hope this is helpful.

    Thank you, that was very helpful. Works like a charm now.

    Haha, after getting it to run on my system, I upgraded to build 5744. DT gave me the initialization error so I proceeded to do the same thing that I had done before to get it working. No go. This time around setup just says "You must reboot after previous operation". LOL.

    And this time around, windows won't let me remove any of the registry values; it just tells me access denied when I attempt to remove. And rebooting into safe mode didn't work either.

    Oh well, it gives me something else to get fixed in vista.

    Do NOT upgrade with Daemon Tools and SPTD layer installed!
    To get it working now, you must remove SPTD layer, reboot, then delete SPTD key in registry Services hive (change/enable permissions of SPTD/cfg key if you get message of missing permissions), reboot, and then re-install.

    I forgot to uninstall, so was in a bad shape. I found that even by taking control of the reg key I still could not delete it (owner, full permissions etc), however, by starting device manager (devmgmt.msc) and then view / show hidden devices, under the non-PNP devices was listed SPTD, which I uninstalled, rebooted and was then able to install DT. Finally, it all worked with RC2.

    Sure, if SPTD is still installed/running it protects its key against unauthorized access, thus you can not delete it, you must remove SPTD service first.
