I get an error message while installing Daemon Tools Pro

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


Hi guys! I tried installing Daemon Tools Pro on my computer, which required me to uninstall the Daemon Tools Lite version which I had previously installed. But after restarting my computer and proceeding to install Daemon Tools Pro, an “Unknown software exception (0x0000409)” error appears. How do I solve this? I need to install this software as soon as possible. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Do you know the minimum system requirements required for installing demon tools into the machine for the version you choose?

If yes then see that they are specific for the type of machine you have.

Secondly, the software that you have obtained is from a valid source, means that the software should be running in another computer to ensure that the software is not corrupt.

Get the new version for the latest updates and bug fixes.

See that the particular executable options are getting blocked by the antivirus or firewall for your security . The files may be affected by viruses. As such obtain another coy form some other website.

To resolve your problem first uninstall all software that uses SPTD layer. Here I will tell you that how to install and reinstall Daemon tools successfully.

For Registry Edit

  • Run REGEDIT in the first and go to the following key

Click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServices

  • Search for SPTD and select START on the right and double click to enter 4 in Value data and then restart the computer.

SPTD service is now disabled. Continue removing it:

  • Click on sptd > Permissions > Advanced
  • Click near to top of the windows’ Owner
  • Your user name in the list to be selected
  • Check Replace owner on sub containers and objects then Press on OK,
  • Check Replace permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here that apply to child objects and then click Add
  • Enter the object name to the select list > OK
  • Now check Allow next to Full Control, this gives your user Full Control over this key > Press on OK
  • In this previous window press on OK and then on Yes > Press on OK now
  • Right click on sptd key and then select Delete > Press on Yes to delete SPTD key

Now reboot your computer. regards,
