Hoping that the local Alcohol folks can shed some light on this apparent driver issue.
This surfaced when trying to install and use Benq firmware flashers and programs. They all crash in Win2000 SP4, producing the “…has generated an error and has been closed” message. This also happens in Safe Mode. When loading safe mode, I notices I was getting a flag to cancel loading “A347bus.sys”, and when I chose to cancel loading that driver, the crashing problem went away. Reference to this thread discussing my problems
My research has pointed to this being an Alcohol driver, virtual drives I take it. There appears to be a variety of other crashing and BSOD problems related to this driver as well.
So I’m looking for some resolution to this issue that does not involve uninstallin Alcohol or disabling the virtual drives.
