I am working on my first implementation of a filesystem. Using .NET / C# API. I have followed the documentation very carefully, but when I try to mount the media I receive the following exception:

CallbackFS.ECBFSError was unhandled
Message="The operation completed successfully"
at CallbackFS.CallbackFileSystem.MountMedia(Int32 Timeout)

Here is the code that results in the error (in my Main() method)

            CallbackFileSystem cfs = new CallbackFileSystem();
            var mmfs = new FileSystemImplementation();

            cfs.OnCanFileBeDeleted = new CbFsCanFileBeDeletedEvent(mmfs.FS_CanFileBeDeleted);
            cfs.OnCloseEnumeration = new CbFsCloseEnumerationEvent(mmfs.FS_CloseEnumeration);
            cfs.OnCloseFile = new CbFsCloseFileEvent(mmfs.FS_CloseFile);
            cfs.OnCreateFile = new CbFsCreateFileEvent(mmfs.FS_CreateFile);
            cfs.OnDeleteFile = new CbFsDeleteFileEvent(mmfs.FS_DeleteFile);
            cfs.OnEnumerateDirectory = new CbFsEnumerateDirectoryEvent(mmfs.FS_EnumerateDirectory);
            // cfs.OnEnumerateNamedStreams = new CbFsEnumerateNamedStreamsEvent(mmfs.FS_EnumerateNamedStreams);
            cfs.OnFlushFile = new CbFsFlushFileEvent(mmfs.FS_FlushFile);
            cfs.OnGetFileInfo = new CbFsGetFileInfoEvent(mmfs.FS_GetFileInfo);
            cfs.OnGetFileNameByFileId = new CbFsGetFileNameByFileIdEvent(mmfs.FS_GetFileNameByFileId);
            //cfs.OnGetFileSecurity = new CbFsGetFileSecurityEvent(mmfs.FS_GetFileSecurity);
            cfs.OnGetVolumeId = new CbFsGetVolumeIdEvent(mmfs.FS_GetVolumeID);
            cfs.OnGetVolumeLabel = new CbFsGetVolumeLabelEvent(mmfs.FS_GetVolumeLabel);
            cfs.OnGetVolumeSize = new CbFsGetVolumeSizeEvent(mmfs.FS_GetVolumeSize);
            cfs.OnIsDirectoryEmpty = new CbFsIsDirectoryEmptyEvent(mmfs.FS_IsDirectoryEmpty);
            cfs.OnMount = new CbFsMountEvent(mmfs.FS_Mount);
            cfs.OnOpenFile = new CbFsOpenFileEvent(mmfs.FS_OpenFile);
            cfs.OnReadFile = new CbFsReadFileEvent(mmfs.FS_ReadFile);
            cfs.OnRenameOrMoveFile = new CbFsRenameOrMoveFileEvent(mmfs.FS_RenameOrMove);
            cfs.OnSetAllocationSize = new CbFsSetAllocationSizeEvent(mmfs.FS_SetAllocationSize);
            cfs.OnSetEndOfFile = new CbFsSetEndOfFileEvent(mmfs.FS_SetEndOfFile);
            cfs.OnSetFileAttributes = new CbFsSetFileAttributesEvent(mmfs.FS_SetFileAttributes);
            //cfs.OnSetFileSecurity = new CbFsSetFileSecurityEvent(mmfs.FS_SetFileSecurity);
            cfs.OnSetVolumeLabel = new CbFsSetVolumeLabelEvent(mmfs.FS_SetVolumeLabel);
            cfs.OnStorageEjected = new CbFsStorageEjectedEvent(mmfs.FS_StorageEjected);
            cfs.OnUnmount = new CbFsUnmountEvent(mmfs.FS_Unmount);
            cfs.OnWriteFile = new CbFsWriteFileEvent(mmfs.FS_WriteFile);

            cfs.ShortFileNameSupport = false;
            cfs.AddMountingPoint(";server;share", CallbackFileSystem.CBFS_SYMLINK_NETWORK | CallbackFileSystem.CBFS_SYMLINK_NETWORK_HIDDEN_SHARE, null);


If I break the execution immediately before the call to "MountMedia", the mounting point is available (i.e., windows reports "Not Ready" as opposed to "Not Found")

I have reviewed the documentation and the sample code carefully and I cannot see what I am doing differently. I have tried adding the mount point with a simple drive letter, and I have also tried calling Mount() before calling AddMountingPoint(), both with the same effect. I do have some of the event handlers commented out as the documentation indicates they are optional and not to susbcribe to events that you will not handle. I find it very perplexing that I should receive an exception with the error code indicating "The operation completed successfully" - what am I doing wrong?

The VMounter sample shows the driver is installed and runs fine.

I was able to determine this error is triggered if you do not subscribe to the (supposedly deprecated) OnVolumeOpen and OnOpenClose delegates.

These items were removed from the documentation and I was advised via the forums that they were deprecated and not necessary, but apparently this information is not correct. If you do not subscribe to these delegates it will result in the above specified error.

They were declared as obsolete but not removed from the check list for some reason. We will make them optional in code in the next update.

Sincerely yours
