Thread: "System File Error" when installing 4.0

  1. #11


    No event at all shown! This issue came after the reboot during th e install. Is this a new key generated? So it would be okay to delete it overall (no idea if deleting would work)?
    I could only see during the install that while install writing into the cfg folder of the registry "ACCESS DENIED" popped up (in regmon) and then the install program aborts.
    So must be an installation script issue.

    The issue could come having two administrators defined on a machine (one local one defined via a domain) as I'm login via the domain one (on XP). If the install does NOT use the current logged on this could be maybe the issue?

    I had the same problem and did what VeNoM386 suggested in his last post. It fixed the system file error, but now I get this error during the D-tools install, and I'm posting it here since it might be related :

    Failed calling CreateFile; GetLastError = 32

    I already installed V4 once without problems, but I had some other problems with my PC and had to do a system repair (yes, just after I installed V4; it wasn't related to it though) and I may need to delete some other files before being able to install it again.

    Well, the error occurs when right after rebooting due to installation of the SPTD, it automatically launches the installation upon entry of Windows again. It then tells me to install SPTD, if I'm ok with that (so, basically, just like a fresh installation without SPTD already on my system), only then, when I click OK, it gives me this System File error.

    Any idea if Norton AntiVirus 2005 might be the culprit here?

    BTW: I have multiple sptd.sys 's. They're named sptd****.sys (where **** is a four character number). Maybe this helps in understanding my problem.

    OMG, I have the same problem and also have no idea how to solve this one.

    -"system file error" after restart of first trying of installation.
    -no services,dlls,folders,error messages in event viewer etc...
    -only 1 administrator defined on the PC

    looks like someone in the DT-dev community is in anti-pirate community, heh => you cannot install DT4 and cannot back to the DT3 after trying to install DT4...

    just kidding of course...

    sorry for my poor english (have no practice, have no English trainig, Russian nationality etc)

    plz if you have a solution/link to solution/any idea - share it!
    I am ready to try any ideas.

    By the way:
    PC configuration:
    Windows XP corporate license ENGLISH
    all patches included
    Avast! Home edition anti-virus software
    Microsoft anti-spyware beta
    administrator's account

    I used Anti-Blaxx but I deleted it some weeks before.
    Right now I cannot find any regs about Anti-Blaxx on my PC

    All ppl who have this System File error after reboot please
    specify as more details as possible about your OS versions (including service packs) and programs installed.
    We are trying to investigate it.

    Default Had same problems as most people but fixed

    I couldnt install Daemon 4.0 for anything, I tried almost everything but nothing worked. However, even when i tried installing it on my laptop, I got the same error even though it was freshly formatted. The only similarities were my anti virus program. I guess some how it was linked to kernel debugger and SPTD. Long story short I uninstalled my anti virus, installed Daemon just fine than reinstalled my anti virus. Working perfect now

    The only solution for my was a fresh reinstall of Windows.
    Now it works...i don't know other way...
