    Dokan doesn’t support XP x64, but should support 2008 server because the latest WDK doesn’t support XP x64 anymore. Actually the binary for 2008 and Vista is same. I will change the installer for the next release.

    I’ve uninstalled dokansshfs but I didn’t uninstall dokan library 0.4.2 (I simply forgot it and removed the remaining files manually).
    Now dokan library 0.5.1 installer says that I have to uninstall (not possible now!) the previous version. I’ve cleaned up registry removing all “dokan” references, but it still stops installing. What kind of check does the installer perform? I removed the directories too…
    I tried to trace with regmon/filemon, but I’ve found no hints.
    A manual uninstall procedure for dokan library 0.4.2 would be appreciated.

    hi gencap,
    search in your windows directory for dokan.dll and dokan.sys. just rename or delete these files and the installer shouldn’t make trouble any longer. worked for me.

    The installer checks WINDOWS\System\Drivers\dokan.sys file.
    dokan.sys is registered to system, and you need to unregister it.
    Try following commands on DOS prompt:
    > sc query DokanMounter
    > sc stop DokanMounter
    > sc delete DokanMounter
    > sc query Dokan
    > sc stop Dokan
    > sc delete Dokan

    After running the commands, delete WINDOWS\System\Drivers\dokan.sys file and restart your computer.

    If you get error by “sc query” command, you don’t need to run “sc stop or delete”.

    Is there any alternative program to notepad for this new version of Dokan. I have problems openning files that use to work well in Dokan. Any suggestions?

    Hello, thank you very much for Dokan and DokanSSHFS, great program!
    Is there any way to script drive mounting at login or startup? I would like to use SSHFS instead of samba to my server, since it lets me mount drives to many different user accounts which I have trouble doing with samba.

    Thank you,

    There are files that i use to open with notepad in the earlier version of Dokan (e.g. .dat, .mod etc), but when i installed the new version several of those files were not accessible. I got a way round this by using notepad++ editor. The new problem now is that some file extensions such as .mod anre not visible, maybe there is a way to view hidden files in dokan.

    Thanks for the great work!

    Probably nowhere in the country is this more true than at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which has needed additional space for decades and which http://www.chiflat-iron received its last significant facelift ten years ago.

    Young people are impressionable. Therefore, some request that the media should take responsibility by changing some of the content of their shows
    especially those for teens.

    For workers it promises freedom from the office, less time wasted in traffic, and help with child-care conflicts. For management, telecommuting helps keep high performers on board, minimizes tardiness and absenteeism by eliminating commutes, allows periods of solitude for high-concentration tasks, and provides scheduling flexibility. In some areas, such as Southern California and Seattle, Washington, local governments are encouraging companies to start telecommuting programs in order to reduce rush-hour congestion and improve air quality.
