error with SmeUtil.sys - Ghost Solution Suite 18.104.22.1686
I'm having a problem with Deploy Anywhere after creating a WinPE 3.0 boot disk including Ghost executables. Everything is working fine with exception to Deploy Anywhere, it's throwing an error:
"Unable to connect to the SmeUtil driver. The handle is invalid."
I followed this guide for adding Ghost executables to WinPE 3.0:
The guide does not mention Deploy Anywhere under WinPE 3.0, but instead just covers getting Ghost32 working, with driver support.
I have tried all combinations to include the SmeUtil.sys driver in "windows\system32", as is required. Many posts I have read refer to this again and again. No matter what I do I get the same error. Whether packaged into the .wim, or added to system32 manually after booting up, no success.
Does anyone have any tips for what I could try next? I plan to stay very active on this thread and will try anything anyone recommends.
Here's a screenshot to get things started...
*Please note, in the screenshot I do not specify a driver database. This is intended. Whether I specify a driver database or not, I get the same error.
Thanks everyone for taking the time to help me out with this.
