The error window was titled as DAEMON Tools Lite and specified a requirement for a version of Windows greater than Windows 2000 and an application  called SPTD. I later discovered that SPTD stands for SCSI Pass Through Direct which is actively developed by a company called DuplexSecure and used by numerous applications including DAEMON Tools Lite. Below I describe the pop up error message in more detail and how to resolve it by installing the SCSI Pass Through Direct application.

I waited out the upgrade for over 8 hours but in the end it still failed out. Anyhow during the process of reinstalling Windows 7 x64 on my laptop and installing all of the applications that were installed previously I wanted to restore my Trillian chat history for all of the various Trillian Connections.
