    Daemon Works (you dont want to try what i did though...)

    i know you have heard that stpd wont work in 7 no matter what....

    well that dosent meant that deamon tools wont work in 7 (well sort of...)

    well as you can see its installed....

    there are a few caveats....

    no x64....
    (well dosn't matter for the few of you running the beta...lol)
    no DEP
    (idk why maybe had to with the drivers???....)
    deamon must run as Admin
    (idk why my guess is interaction with said scsi drivers...


    and the biggest one....
    you can only run 3.17.....

    well as you might know sptd wasnt originally on deamon tools another scsi adapter
    was used when daemon tools was in its infancy....

    No point, really, for using the older version, though, as Virtual Clone Drive works for basic optical disk emulation, and 3.17 has such old and outdated protection bypass schemes that is it pretty useless with any modern games.

    However, thanks for looking into that - when I couldn't get Daemon to install because the installer kept trying to restart the SPTD driver install, I just gave up and stopped it - however, you have given me an idea - if we download the SPTD standalone installer and run *it* with compatibility mode enabled by itself, perhaps maybe we can get this animal working with the newer versions....

    I was afraid of that - that driver is being a PITA.

    I wonder if we disable the need for signed drivers if it gets installed? Hell, I wonder if we can even disable that check in W7....

    [QUOTE=johngalt;10969] for basic optical disk emulation,

    is basic optical disk emulation suitable for mounting and unmounted applications? I am interested for several reasons: a) I have heard 'old wifes tales' saying to not remove any programs/apps. b) I like [more like addicted] to installing all sorts of exe's, and some of them do need removing, but still reluctant because i was looking for a solution anyway, and a bone yard can be instructive, in that way. c) the new SSDs are great for the C drive, but only the smaller SSD are in my budget, can apps live off the OS drive?. d) i read on the VMware web site of a product that manages configuring applications on corporate laptops, but that was 6-7 thousand bucks! previously known as THINSTALL e) portableapps.com seems to be in the same family f) EVALAZE claims to install and run applications without having to install it in the "traditional way".

    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
