Changelog Added native support for Windows on ARM64 Load the selected image file to the corresponding drive via hotkeys Added ID and SCSI column Added show drive location and drive letter in properties dialog Removed the ugly focus rectangle on drive list view Fixed invoke hotkeys when configuring them Added save drive list column layout Update language files Fixed unable to install driver in some cases Added doesn't load driver in safe mode Fixed there is no progress while creating the iso Added eject unmounts image
Because native support for the ARM64 version is added to the installation package, the installation package is 254 KB larger.
We took some time to natively support Windows on ARM64, releasing DVDForge first today, will release ImgDrive tomorrow.
Since we do not have ARM64 machine on hand, if you encounter problems during installation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will repair it as soon as possible.
Changelog Fixed unable to install driver in some cases Added doesn't load driver in safe mode Fixed there is no progress while creating the iso
We have received feedback from users that the driver cannot be installed, and an error is displayed in the c:\windows\inf\setupapi.dev.log:
Unable to mark devices that match new INF - (00000490)!
Device not started: Device has problem: 0x25 (CM_PROB_FAILED_DRIVER_ENTRY), problem status: 0xc0000001.
We can't reproduce this issue on win10 machines on our side, and after reviewing a lot of information, we guess that the cause of this problem may be:
The system has Hypervisor-Protected Code Integrity enabled and the driver is not compatible with that feature.
In order to completely solve this problem, we upgraded the driver compilation tool to Visual Studio 2019, if you encounter driver installation failure problems, please try the latest version of ImgDrive 22.214.171.124.
If anyone is happy for us to connect remotely to resolve the problem that the driver won't install, please install TeamViewer and send the ID and Password to email@example.com, thank you.
Changelog Added ID and SCSI column Added show drive location and drive letter in properties dialog Removed the ugly focus rectangle on drive list view Fixed invoke hotkeys when configuring them Added save drive list column layout Update language files
You can drag and drop columns to change the display order
Right click the column to show/hide the specified column
Show drive location and drive letter in properties dialog
We are working on a virtual burner feature, support DVD/BD burning first.
In addition, we will add "Eject unmounts image file" feature in future, which is consistent with the Eject behavior of Windows 10's built-in ISO feature.
Changelog Load the selected image file to the corresponding drive via hotkeys Updated language files
For example, we set ctrl+F2 hotkeys to mount files to drive 2:
Select an image file in Windows Explorer and press Ctrl+F2 to load the file to drive 2.
If no file is selected, the Open File dialog box will pop up.
Changelog Added hotkey settings Added shortcut settings Fixed the destination file cannot be saved when "Create Image" Fixed the Edit control cannot display too long text Removed virtual drive name customization Increase the maximum number of drives to 9 Added install a 32-bit shell extension on a 64-bit system Changed the drive IO, the 32-bit ImgDrive can also run on 64-bit systems Updated driver version to 1.9.2 Some minor changes and improvements
ImgDrive 1.9.2 added a shortcut setting function, shortcut keys can only be used when ImgDrive is the current active window, each command can set two shortcut keys.
Global hotkeys differ from shortcut keys in that they can be used regardless of the current window as long as ImgDrive is running. This function can realize the function of the drive cabinet, press a hotkey, you can load the image to the corresponding drive.
Finally, is anyone using the arm64 version of Windows? If necessary, we are ready to make the arm64 version of ImgDrive
Changelog Drop support for XP and 2003 Server Fixed unable to install driver in some cases Fixed cannot read track information Added Bulgarian translation
Starting in 2021, SHA1-based code signing certificates will no longer be issued, and we won't be able to code sign for imgdrive.sys for Windows XP and Windows 2003 Server. If don't sign, the system can't load the ImgDrive driver (it seems that the PNP driver is more special, and other drivers can load without a signature). XP and 2003 releases have been around for more than 20 years, and there are very few download users, so we don't plan to continue to support these two systems, if you want to use ImgDrive on XP and 2003, you can install ImgDrive 1.8.7, which is the last version that supports XP and 2003.
Microsoft's code signing is now becoming more and more complex, all in all, for ImgDrive, a storport-based PNP driver, if you want to support all systems after Windows 7, you need to:
1. Buy an expensive EV code signing certificate (DigiCert 699 USD/year), in order to apply for this EV code certificate, you need all kinds of strange materials, why not Microsoft copies the Apple Developer Program (99 USB/year + D&B D-U-N-S , do not need vampire-like code certificate authorities)
2. For Windows 10 signed with an EV code signing certificate, submit to Microsoft WHCP for signature
For Windows 8, to load the PNP driver smoothly, you need to do WHQL, and you need to deploy test machines for each system and platform, which is time-consuming
For Windows 7, it is possible to load a driver with a WHCP signature, but a red warning dialog box will pop up during installation
Currently v1.9.0 version of ImgDrive only supports Windows 10/11/7. Windows 8 will do HCK certification later, and future versions will try to support Windows systems released after Windows 7.
The short-term development plans that follow, in order of priority:
1. Focus on improving the driver code, adding support for multi-file CUE
2. HCK and HKL certification (need more than a dozen test machines to deploy each version of x86/x64 Windows)
3. MacOS and Linux versions of ImgDrive, this is still in the research stage, if release these two platform versions in the future, do not pay extra, once purchased can be used on all platforms. Buy Early, Enjoy Early :)
Changelog Fixed cannot load CD-Text in NRG images Added digitally sign the setup package Highlights the menu item: "Open ImgDrive"
Changelog Remove apply button from settings dialog Fixed the status of "Hide Unmounted Drives" was inconsistent in some cases Rename 'Hide Unmounted Drives' to 'Hide Empty Drives' Added drive type and size column Added option to show/hide Other DVD/CD-ROM Drives Removed option shortcut: Ctrl+S Fixed Ctrl+O shortcut not working
