Windows 7: DAEMON Tools Lite 4: Unable to mount an image

DAEMON Tools Lite 4: Unable to mount an image

I've successfully installed DAEMON Tools Lite 4 from its official website on Windows 7 Professional. A virtual device has been created. When I double-click on an ISO file, it gives a message as "Mounting image", however, then it stops and gives an error as "Unable to add virtual device." It also creates a new virtual device each time I double-click on an ISO file. DAEMON Tools Lite control panel also does not show any virtual device that is created and seen in the Devices with Removable Storage list on Computer window.

I would suggest you get rid of it and use Virtual Clone Drive instead.

If not, have you installed SPDT and restarted the PC? If not, you should've. I suggest you clean install DT again.

Of all of the well known causes that will throw a BSOD, Daemon Tools ranks in the top three. I Know there are some that will say that SPDT.sys is perfectly safe, however, I beg to differ. There are too many other programs that are available that will safely do what Daemon tools does (Virtual CloneDrive) that its not worth taking the chance. Of course this is my own opinion, and others may disagree!

Slysoft's Virtual CloneDrive SlySoft Virtual CloneDrive is the best and there is no second best.

Issue with Daemon Tools Lite
I have Daemon Tools Lite on my computer, but the issue is that every time it is used, it checks itself in on the start-up list. I would open MSconfig and it would be checked in again. Is there any way to stop this program from making itself a start-up program every time I use it?
