    Ok, I guess, I posted a slightly incorrect link. Here is the recipe:

    Select “start->run” or press “Windows key + R key”, type “regedit”.
    Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SYSTEM -> CurrentControlSet -> Control -> Class
    Press “Ctrl+F”, type “cdrom”, press ENTER.
    Ensure that the “{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}” class was selected on the left.
    Carefully examine the values on the right. If anything like “UpperFilters”, “LowerFilters” or anything else containing the word “filter” appears there, please either post the values here, or make a screenshot of your regedit window.

    If the “UpperFilters” is non-empty, try using devcon to remove it and test whether WinCDEmu works.

    As for keeping AnyDVD, I suppose, it uses a filter driver – a special driver, that intercepts the connection between the operating system and the original driver and does some background hacking (e.g. prevents other applications from accessing the drive while recording is in process). The problem is that it has its own internal assumptions about the underlying CDROM driver, that I cannot know. As WinCDEmu emulates only basic features, something confuses the filter driver and it sabotages the virtual device. If you get the exact name of the filter driver and I manage to reproduce the bug on my machine, I might be able to make WinCDEmu satisfy AnyDVD’s expectations. However, I cannot promise any success, as the problem is generally outside WinCDEmu and can be hard to analyze.

    Please ensure that the AnyDVD filter was removed from the “UpperFilters” for CDROM class (more details here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=457&start=10)

    Devcon is a Microsoft utility from Windows Driver Kit, that does various maintenance things related to device drivers. You can read more here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/311272
    Yes, you can delete “UpperFilters” manually, but you will most likely need to reboot afterwards and there may be some leftovers in the registry, that devcon would clean up otherwise.
    I have no clue, how did GEARAspiWDM get on your machine, but googling it points to Gear Software. Maybe, some other product uses it as well. I have installed InfraRecorder 0.50 on my VM and found out that it did not add GEARAspiWDM.

    Ok, the GEARAspiWDM, that is the reason of the problem, comes from “GearDVD” and related software. I have checked the latest GearDVD trial on Win7x64 and did not encounter any problems with WinCDEmu. It seems that you have previously installed some older Gear Software products, that left this filter driver. To remove it, please download devcon utility (http://wincdemu.sysprogs.org/devcon.zip) and run the following command line:
    devcon classfilter cdrom upper !GEARAspiWDM

    Ok, the “GEARAspiWDM” seems to be the reason of the conflict. I guess, it sends some specific control codes to the virtual drive, gets a “not supported” reply and aborts the device initialization sequence. Generally, a bug in InfraRecorder, BTW.
    Anyway, I’ll install InfraRecorder on a VM and see what happens.

    Ok, if you just type in e.g. “C:WINDDK7600” or whatever the path is to the text box, what happens?

    Ok. As the combination of Mac + Windows 7 is quite rare and impossible for me to test, I won’t be able to fix it without any feedback.
    If you or anyone else having the same problem find some more time to do the tests and submit the feedback, you are welcome 🙂

    Ok, what does the “batchmnt64 /list” command print, when such a “install failed” dialog is still active? BTW, you need to check the device manager while the dialog is still there (or just after; restarting will of course remove the device node for the virtual CDROM).

    Ok, please go to the device manager (press Windows key + Pause key on the keyboard and select “Device Manager”), find the faulty CD-ROM drive in the list, right-click on it, select “properties”, look and post here the following information:
    1. The text in “device status” box.
    2. In “details” page, the “value” for:
    a. Hardware IDs
    b. Compatible IDs
    c. Device Instance Path
    d. Matching device ID


    It is important that “hardware IDs” will contain “GenCDRom. If it does contain it, but the driver still cannot be installed, do the following:
    Select “start->run” or press “Windows key + R key”, type “regedit”.
    Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SYSTEM -> CurrentControlSet -> Control -> Class
    Press “Ctrl+F”, type “cdrom”, press ENTER.
    Ensure that the “{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}” class was selected on the left.
    Carefully examine the values on the right. If anything like “UpperFilters”, “LoweFilters” or anything else containing the word “filter” appears there, please either post the values here, or make a screenshot of your regedit window.

    Did the installer successfully switch your system to the “testsigning mode”? Maybe, BootCamp somehow prevents it? Do you have the “test mode/windows 7” message in the lower right corner of your desktop?

    That is really wierd. I tested the latest version on Windows XP, Server 2003, Vista and Win7 both x86 and 64 and could not reproduce any problem Please check your system for viruses.

    Visual Studio Express does not support 3-rd party extensions. So, VisualDDK won’t work.

    Which OS version did you select in the wizard? Maybe, the selected OS does not have support for x64 target? Try selecting the latest one (Windows 7).

    Do you have any cd burning software installed? Something that can interfere with CD drives?
    As for the uninstall, I have fixed it in WinCDEmu 3.3-1. Just download the updated file and install it over the old one. Then the uninstall will work.

    Not yet. The explanation is on the main page. Basically, issuing code signing certificates to individuals rather than companies is not a “usual practice”, so it takes time to negotiate things.
