    Ausrufezeichen "Unable to open file in kernel mode"

    I have some ISOs on a share on a Windows Server 2008 x64 fileserver, when I try mounting them with Daemon Tools 4.30.3 on a freshly reformatted laptop (Toshiba Tecra M4, running Windows XP TabletPC Edition 2005 with SP3) I get this error page:

    ---------------------------
    DAEMON Tools Lite
    ---------------------------
    Unable to mount image. Unable to open file in kernel mode.
    ---------------------------
    OK
    ---------------------------

    Do you have anydvd installed? Does this test iso image mount successfully when copied to the file server?

    Maybe network permissions are a problem.

    The workaround is if I open another file in the share in say, notepad. (Like if there was a text file in the same directory as the ISO). I can then load the ISO from Daemon Tools.

    Weird.

    Do you have a persistent (across reboots) drive letter assigned to the network location? Do you get asked for credentials after each reboot?

    I don't access it via a mapped network drive, but my computer and the server are all in the same domain (the WS2008 file server is also the domain controller)

    Besides assigning a persistent drive letter, I'm out of ideas.

    I have the same isseu running under vista SP1.

    Have assigned a static drive letter but no joy. The odd this is that my laptop works with no issue again running Vista SP1 same user connected to the same share.

    I have software like AstroBurn and ImgBurn on the machine, but also have this on the laptop with no issue. Will try the test ISO later.

    After re-booting the macine the image would mount successfully.
