hi, i started using DaemonTools since 3.33 and no problems at all so far. till i upgraded to 3.43. during reboot, win98se hanged half way thru, at abt 80% and before going into desktop.
to cut long story short… i’ve done extensive trial & error and checking and have confirmed that it’s the pnphlp.vxd that’s causing the problem. in order to boot properly, i must use StepbyStep Confirmation and when asked whether to load pnphlp.vxd, i must say No. otherwise win98se will hang.
however, by not loading pnphlp.vxd, i won’t be able to use DT coz it’ll say “virtual SCSI driver not found”. but on the other hand, if i boot normally (load all drivers) win98se can’t boot properly, it’ll hang.
i’ve tried removing pnphlp.vxd from the registry. after which win98se is able to boot normally (but cant use DT ofcoz).
i’ve also tried uninstalling/reinstalling many times, using DT version 3.41 and even 3.33… but it seems everytime pnphlp.vxd is present, win98se cannot boot now.
i’ve also tried restoring my registry using scanreg /restore at command prompt. problem still persists, as long as pnphlp.vxd is present.
although i’ve fixed my boot up problem (by removing pnphlp.vxd from the registry), it looks like i can’t use DT ever again… is there a fix? or i need to wait for newer version than 3.43?
in case anyone else encountered problems with 3.43, check if ur problem is similiar to mine. you can try the remedies i did (altho juz temporary fix)
meantime, if anyone has a fix for this (making DT work again) i’m very much appreciate it.
