Note: I am NOT using Kaspersky Anti Virus, so it isn't part of the issue. I use Microsoft Security Essentials, and installing the CBFS PnP device did not cause Security Essentials to respond in any way.

Ahh for extra information which I realized I had not mentioned, I am building the dotNet C# version of the sample app (and that was what our original program was written in)

Just to clear this up a little, Kaspersky AV only responds when the drive is physically mounted by (our) application (or VMounter sample app). Installation of drivers themselves don't cause a response.

KAV seems to see the drive as it is mounted and respond to it the same way as it would respond to a USB key being inserted or a USB drive being plugged in and offers to scan the new device.
I always clicked "Skip" and never allowed it to scan

The issue still occurs

I know it's only been a couple days, but has there been any progress with this? I'm going to have to reinstall everything on my development machine tomorrow if I can't get this resolved.

We have reproduced the problem and are examining it.

The problem has been resolved. It seems that one of the system API has a bug (or it's such a feature).
The bug is connected with the PnP virtual storages creation and the bugfix will be available in the next build (it's expected in a few days). In the attachment there is a patch that fixes Windows activation. Execute it on the "deactivated" OSes and follow the instructions.
Sorry for the inconveniences.

In the attachment is a zip-file. Strange but this forum spoils the attached file names.

I am suffering from a very similar issue, where both Windows 7 and Office 2010 license cannot be validated anymore. I tried every solution on the internet I could find, from GPO setting, registry settings, resetting the license with slmgr.vbs and many more. Even when I restored an older Windows 7 image from long before I got the problem, the problem swiftly returned, after only windows updates and Comodo firewall updates had run. It took me well over 20 hours of frustration. Then I uninstalled the Comodo firewall but the problem persisted. The only think that seemed to work was running the fix you provided above. Now comes the strange part: After applying the fix and rebooting, All licenses work fine, but after some time (hours?) or one or more reboots the problem pops up again. When I apply he fix and reboot again, everything works again. So I have to repeat this process very often. Somehow something is still broken in the Windows license system. I would really like to know what exactly the fix does, so I might be able to pinpoint the cause of this returning error. Can you tell me what exactly the fix does, which files or settings are repaired?
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

Dear Mr.Reubzaet, is your question related to our product (Callback File System) in any way? If no then we can't help you unfortunately.
