Hi there. I installed softice 4.05 on my pc. When i press CTRL+D to enter softice, nothing happens. I then started the following command: net start ntice but "an error occured"... I installed the patch but still no luck. I then downloaded and installed DriverStudio 3.0 because on the web 'they' said that it is fully Windows XP compatible. When I start DriverStudio/Softice, it shows the screen where it calls "net start ntice" but then every thing hangs! When I press CTRL+D it goes into SI and when I press F5 it goes back into Windows but windows still seems to be hanging. No mouse movement or keyboard activity. I cannot even ping this pc from another. I have WinXP Pro (SP2) installed 1GB RAM 1.4 GHz CPU (AMD Duron) NVidia GeForce 4 MX 420 Hope someone can help.
