Release Notes

Code has been removed that handles and supports windows "shares"

  • Due to the many issues that the Dokan driver has, and the lack of ongoing support, when using SMB to setup shares to the mounted volume; I have decided to remove all the workaround for sharing code
  • If you have done the SMB / OpLocks registry hacks and other fiddles to get previous releases to work, then I recommend you undo them for this release onwards

If you install (or later remove), then please leave a little feedback here

So if you want to have the new volume shared, then use a third-party application to redirect the network requests into the Windows FileSystem. I suggest one of the free FTP services, and then some sort of client application that "Talks" FTP and maps the drive into the client OS. Something Like Amalgam or Eldos SFTP.

A delay

- Currently under going a delay, due to time being spent on work projects and also getting the tracker code sorted to enable the "Guided Wizard" pages. See http://trackers.codeplex.com/ for progress.

Working on

- Management App Startup is not "Ideal"

Done in code

- 1st install, does not use a non used drive for demo mapping.
- Issue with Liquesce and uTorrent - needs more testing

- 2012-12-11 RC2

- Allow mounting of pool in directory point
-- Need to create it as an access point in XP
-- Check Drive exists
-- Create folder if it does not exist
-- Allow drag drop into the mount point
- Start to investigate Management App Startup is not "Ideal"
- Add "Service not running" text back in
- Modify service exit state to capture when mounting is not successful and force service close with the appropriate error code.

- 2012-11-23 Test Release (Beta 1)

- Release for testing
- Remove FileSharing and will decline any further support for Phase I shares.
- Start to investigate mounting as a folder
- Add TailForm to the Management application to see the Service log files changing.

Testing

- http://liquesce.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Test%20Scenarios
- Investigated Liquesce won't uninstall - fails with error 2755

And as always - Fix / investigate some issues

- Change the space usage to be a table with scroll-bars to give better layout options (And sorting etc.)
- Error 1450: Insufficient System Resources for Service

What Settings to reset windows after SMB fiddling?

- 0.6.0 Sharing on Win 7 x64 & x32 Host Locks up XP Client
- Possibly solved the x64 Sharing Issue
