Thanks Alexander for your support.
I shall try my hands on the OS Edition's sample and get back to you. Sounds like your product will meet all my requirements.

Thanks once again!

Hi Alexander,

I tried to run the SimpleMounter in Visual Studi 2005 (.NET version) but when i run it there is not option to CREATE a storage.There is only the option to Mountit. And when I try to mount a storage formed by the Application Edition, it raises an exception-
"System.IO.IOException was unhandled

Please guide me on the OS version's sample program.

The error "The system cannot open the device or file specified" usually means that the driver (solfs.sys or soldisk.sys) isn't installed.

How can we read the contents of a file, say open an image file in an C# PictureBox control?
The read method doesn't provide it :-(

I just wanted to know "How can we get the exact path of the file" stored in the storage?

Like, I have stored an Image/Video file in my storage, what will be my path that i can use in my application?

Hi Richa,

Sorry for the delay. Please specify your code which is used to initialize the PictureBox control.

The simplest way to load an image from SolFS storage into pictureBox componet is:

Storage = new SolFSStorage(@"C:\1.st", false, false, '\\');
pictureBox1.Image = Image.FromStream(new SolFSStream(Storage, @"\1.jpg", FileMode.Open));

The methods to convert the filename in the storage into fully qualified system file name is really absent from .NET calls. I'm working to add it right now.

Hi Alexander,

I was doing the same but wasnt using the "@". Thank, it solved the problem and my demo ith your project has passed :-)
e ill soon be purchasing it.. Thanks a tonne..

Though I ill have to try embedding a video file and using it. In case I face some issue, will post it here.

Also I wanted to know, that the .st files that we form, these can b mounted by softwares available on the web and the content can be copied. What does SolFS do about it?
