Softice 4.3.1 on WinXP SP2

Softice 4.3.1 on WinXP SP2

Softice 4.3.1 on WinXP SP2

Hey Guys
I Installed DriverStudio 3.1 with softice 4.3.1 on a Windows XP SP2
I loaded the symbols of all the components listed in the Winace.dat

My problem is that my system is hanging up whenever I load softice (manually and other start options), after it hangs, I can only run softice (ctlr+D) which runs perfectly (mouse& Keyboard) , and when I type (x) it returns to the (hunged) windows, but then I can only return to Softice

some of my settings are listed below in case it make any use:

Control Panal->
              Softice =Manual

SoftICE Initialization->
              Initialization string= X;
              Video memory size= 3145 (as I am running under an 1024x768 Res.)
              Display Dignostics Message= True
              Trap NMI=True
              Support Power Management=True
        Symbols-> [all loaded]
              PS2, Enhanced
              Universal Video Driver


I've set boot.ini to a "NOGUIBOOT"

Can Anyone tell me what to do to get it work?!!

Hey Binu...

Unfortunately no, no solution, I tried the net, other forums, they suggested a couple of solutions but still the same.. I am sorry to tell you that I gave up on it... if they can't so a simple work of supporting a stupid OS, they don't deserve that I buy their product(not ignoring that their product is the BEST)

Sorry Man!
