    Hi there
    Daemon tools like a lot of other programs have passed their Sell by date.

    If you want a FOOL PROOF FREE Virtual Disk mounter (and it will also mount Nero NRG images as well as the usial ISO etc formats) try the FREE version of Alcohol 52% free edition -- this will allow you to have up to 6 Virtual drives mounted.

    Works a treat on W7 X64 too

    Alcohol 52% Free Edition 1.9.5.4327.FE - Free Download

    Sometimes it really is time to abandon older software

    Cheers

    Alcohol 52% comes with is free but comes with the Protection Database Search Toolbar. There is no option to unselect it during install, but it can be uninstalled after installing.

    Hi there
    I don't know what sites you get redirected to in India but I'VE NEVER had this problem.

    I NEVER INSTALL TOOLBARS OF ANY KIND BTW -- they are all irritants on a browser in the first place imo.

    The fact you are downloading something that even says TRIAL in it tells me that this isn't the same download that I used.

    I'm at work now so not at my home PC but I'll post a screenshot of Alcohol52% later when I can get to one of my private PC's.

    No probs of any kind.

    Cheers

    The first link is the official Alcohol Soft site. They have two versions of Alcohol 52% for download.
    1. A free version of Alcohol 52% with the toolbar.
    2. A 15 day trial of Alcohol 52% without the toolbar.

    The version (2.0.1.2033.FE) is different from the one you posted (1.9.5.4327.FE)

    I use DT ever since W98SE and since I wasn't aware of any problem between W7 and DT so I went ahead and just installed it.. so far it seems to be working just fine.

    This topic is 2 years old, back when DAEMON didn't have a version working with Windows 7. That has been fixed though.

    That is questionable.

    I haven't because I don't use it. But I have seen BSODs where uninstalling the newest SPTD driver solved the problem. On the other hand, I have never encountered a BSOD caused by MagicDisc which does not use the SPTD.sys driver. Daemon and Alcohol both use the SPTD driver.

    I've had quite a few BSOD's with Daemon. Fixed by uninstalling it.
    Using Virtual CloneDrive now :)

    Wow, why the heck am I the only one who doesn't have software problems? DAEMON worked (and still works) for me, Vista worked for me, IE worked for me, Norton worked for me, etc...
