I’ve been testing Vista RTM for work (v6 build 6000 64-bit) and have finally hit an issue I cannot get around with AnyDVD as the culprit.
Its been a long time since I’ve used the App (as a trial) so I thought I’d download the current version 18.104.22.168 when I read:
Unfortunately this is not the case. After install and reboot AnyDVD advised that “No DVD drive was detected”.
Yes I own one (BENQ DW1650)
Yes I rebooted
Yes I uninstalled and re-installed it (reboots inclusive)
According to Windows Explorer I dont have a DVD Drive when AnyDVD is installed. I also run Daemon Tools and those drives (2 Virtuals) were gone also. When i checked the device manager all 3 drives had the exclamation mark of death saying no drivers were installed - no matter what i did nothing worked aside uninstalling AnyDVD Rebooting and low and behold the drive is back.
Uninstalled Daemon Tools - Failed
Re-installed Any-DVD after removing Daemon Tools - Failed
Uninstalled devices and rebooted - Failed
Dicked around with the Device Manager - Failed
Drive detected in BIOS
So now I’m at a loss but most definately cannot get AnyDVD 22.214.171.124 to work with Vista RTM v6 build 6000 in 64-bit.
