After just receiving the trial key, I am attempting to evaluate SolFS. Using the supplied sample program for .NET (SimpleMounter), I am able to successfully compile using Visual Studio 2008 targeting .NET 2.0 Framework on Windows 7 Ultimate. After clicking on "Install Drivers", I select the \drivers\debug\win32\solfs.sys and soldisk.sys. At which point, an IOException occurs with: The specified driver is invalid.

This was after a clean install, without ever trying to manually install anything. I even tried the "Release" version under \drivers\release\win32, but same problem.

I would appreciate some help here. Thanks.

Nevermind. I found that if I use the AMD64 version, it no longer produces this error. It kind of through me for a bit because I have an Intel i7 chip, not AMD so I didn't automatically think to use that one.
