Using supplied example mount program it works on a Intel based PC. When the same program is run from the AMD processor PC it is unable to mount the solid file and produces the error in topic title.

The correct drivers have been installed pn the AMD pc as I've checked them in the windows\system32\drivers and are correct date stamp.

Any ideas?

thanks in advance.

We mostly have AMD systems and have no problems on them, so the issue might be in something else. What operating systems do you have on those two computers?

wonderful. When exactly are you doing when the error happens? Does it fail on mounting or on adding a mount point? Also can you open the storage in notepad? Notepad works with files in a special way'that's why I am asking.

I've been doing more digging and it looks as if its the drivers that are not installing correctly. Although the files are copied correctly and the reg entries are inserted, the initial reboot the eventvwr states a error: The specified driver is invalid for soldsk & solfs.

Any chance of explaining the install process?

If I'm correct..
Copy sys files to systemroot\system32\drivers
Insert in HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\services\soldsk
Insert in HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\services\solfs

I've noticed that the initial install the registry is updated with soldsk & solfs keys and under them two sub keys Enum & Security. Under soldsk and solfs there is a errorcontrol dword with a value of 1. Also under enum for both Soldsk & Solfs there is a dword INITSTARTFAILED with a value of 1.

I'm not sure this is correct and it could be this that is the problem?

The API ncludes 2 functions, InstallDrivers and UninstallDrivers. Please use those functions to ensure that the drivers are installed correctly. Manual installation will cause all kinds of troubles.

I've not been installing manually...I'm currently using the installdrivers & unistalldrivers functions. As part of the problem determination I'm trying to work out what the functions actually do to see if I can identify the problem.

When the installdrivers function is called the results return true to reboot the PC. Looking at the eventlog it generates an error "The Soldisk service failed to start due to the following error: The specified driver is invalid" Event ID 7000 its also the same for SolFS.

The driver files are:
soldisk.sys 50k 22/08/2006
solfs.sys 597k 22/08/2006

When does the error happen - after rebooting?

I believe this is due to the previous incorrect attempts to manually install the drivers.

I have never installed manually.

I have now rebuilt the AMD PC with standard Windows XP SP2. No other software has been installed...its just the operating system. When I run the program to install the drivers it prompts to reboot. I look into the eventlog prior to rebooting the PC and I can see two entries (eventid 7000) as stated previously in this thread.

I have used the program on two intel machines and they work without any issues. Unfortunately I do not have access to any Athlon PC at this time.

The processor is a AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3500+, Frequency 2190Mhz
