Need help getting Dexdrive to work

Hi everyone,
I am new here and just hopped in, because I saw Kartmaster got the program started with Win 10. Since the download link isn't available anymore, just one question to you Kartmaster: Did you use a normal installer or did you modified it anyhow? The normal installer doesn't work with actual versions of Win 10. I just hope, you have a modified version.

If you don't: As far as I can say, the problem is only the installer, not the program itself. Otherwise it wouldn't run on some older builds of windows 10. So if anyone could find out were the installer spread all his files and what it changes on the registry, it would be possible to do the copying and changes manually. Maybe someone with right equipment could work it out.

The issue is a real problem to me. Because I don't own so many memory cards fpr N64 and PSX, I saved many files on my PC and can't use them now. :(

Hey, thanks for the answer. Unfortunately it doesn't work. Autorun starts the selection interface, but when I choose install, it works short, then it does nothing. After a while it just closes. I can see, it tries to start the setup.exe. I can see the 32-bit setup launcher starting in the processes, but it does nothing. No usage of CPU etc., it just takes some memory. I have to shut it down manually, before I can start again. When I start the setup.exe directly, same problems accure. I testes some compatibility modes, always the same result.

Just before you are asking:
I have installed .NET 3.5 (inludes 2.0 and 3.0) and .Net 4.6
Also I have vcredist in the following versions:
2005
2008 x86
2010 x86 and x64
2012 x86 and x64
2013 x86 and x64

PC is fresh installed. No upgrade, clean install. I found the link with the other setup.exe you provided, same result. :(

Win 7 works fine every time. I don't have any problems with Dexdrive and Win 7 on 4 computers. It is only a problem with Win 8 and 10. I have a saved program folder from an Win 7 here and copied it to my Win 10. I got the program running, but it couldn't find his index (Yeah, the registry would fix that) and it couldn't find the Dexdrive (Drivers are missing, I guess). That means, it would probably run with Win 10, if we could get the installer to work. Or find out, what it installs everywhere.

Maybe we could work something out. There are programs existing, which scan the registry and can tell you the difference before and after installation. It would require a clean install (Many programs are leaving registry keys after uninstall) for this. One of this programs is regdiff. The installed drivers could be identified and extracted with double driver. All we would need than is an program which could snapshot a whole system and compare it before and after an installation. The Dexdrive programm ha some dll's and I bet some are stored somewhere in the Windows folder. I don't know if a program exists to snapshot a whole system and even if so, Windows is constantly changing some files. So we would get a lot of files which changed during installation and it would be quite some work to check, what is necessary and what not. Yeah, then we could build a script, which works as installer. Hopefully.

However, it would be much easier to get this installer running. But I even don't know what you changed there.
