    Daemon Tools Pro won't start or mount images


    Like title says, for some reason Daemon Tools Pro (latest build 8.3.0) won't launch or mount images anymore. When I double click the application shortcut or images to mount (they're associated to open with DT), the loading cursor appears for a split second but nothing happens. It was working fine a couple of days ago, I don't have any idea on why it's not working anymore, I didn't install or change anything in Windows. I've already reinstalled the program it but didn't fix the issue.

    I installed the free version (Lite) to test, and though the application launches, the images still don't mount on Explorer. I have to manually select a virtual drive and browse the image to mount. The application is working fine on my other two machines, it's so completely random and unexpected that I have no idea on what might be causing it.

    OS info: Windows 10 Pro 19042.804

    edit: I noticed the service DiscSoftBusServicePro.exe is not running on Task Manager, but I can't start it because it does not show on Services management console. Double clicking it also does nothing. Is there a way to manually start this process?

    Have you got a System Restore Point prior to this issue?

    Hello @ksio89,

     SFC and RestoreHealth

    [1] Press the Win + X keys together > Command Prompt (Admin).
    [2] Highlight ALL the commands below.

    IMPORTANT:

    • It is recommended when running SFC that Fast Startup is turned OFF [ Turn it back ON when finished ] => How to Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10

    • If SFC finds any ERRORS that it can NOT repair, run SFC again upto 3 more times, Restarting after each to allow any pending actions to be implemented.

    • DISM will initially try and Repair ANY Corrupted or Missing files using the Component Store.
      If this is NOT possible, DISM will use Windows Update. Therefore, Internet access is required.
      If you are NOT connected to the Internet, you will receive a Error: 0x800f081f.

    [3] Press the Ctrl + C keys together.
    [4] Right-click inside the Administrator: Command Prompt Window > Paste.
    [5] Press Enter.

    Code:
    
    sfc /scannow
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    sfc /scannow
    

    • When the above has finished processing . . .

    [6] Right-click on the title bar of the Administrator: Command Prompt Window > Edit > Select All.
    [7] Right-click on the title bar of the Administrator: Command Prompt Window again > Edit > Copy.

    • Paste the results into your post using the [CODE] tags . . .

    [8] In your post, click the Hashtag icon #.
    [9] Click INSIDE the [CODE]Here[CODE] tags and press the Ctrl + V keys together.

    • In your post it will look like this . . .

    Code:
    
    <<< Results here >>>
    

     SFC Error Report

    However, if there are STILL SFC ERRORS . . .

    [1] Press the Win + X keys together > Command Prompt (Admin).
    [2] Highlight the command below.

    NOTE:

    If you have a Relocated Desktop, then change the %UserProfile% part of the Command below to the actual path of the Relocated Desktop folder.

    [3] Press the Ctrl + C keys together.
    [4] Right-click inside the Administrator: Command Prompt Window > Paste.
    [5] Press Enter.

    Code:
    
    findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log > "%UserProfile%\Desktop\SFC_Details.log"
    

    • This will create a SFC_Details.log file on the Desktop.

    EITHER:

    Copy & Paste the results into your post using the [CODE] tags . . .

    [1] Open the SFC_Details.log file in Notepad.
    [2] Press the Ctrl + A keys together.

    Hello, thank you for the help. Fortunately, I did, and after restoring, the application is working again. It's scary how these random Windows issues arise from nowhere and do not have any apparent solution, forcing users to refresh, restore or reinstall the OS. I'll follow Brink's tutorial to schedule the creation of restore points, because you just can't trust Windows to stay issue free for long.
