Technology Errors

A Runtime Error has occurred. Do you wish to Debug? – Internet Explorer 5 – Windows 2000 SP2

I have been working with some older versions of Windows 2000 lately including Windows 2000 SP2 or Service Pack 2. On this version of Windows 2000 SP2 the version of Internet Explorer or IE is 5.00.3315.1000 which is completely outdated. I doubt that many others will be running into Runtime Errors however it is possible even in more current versions of Internet Explorer though the setting that resolves this issue is enabled by default so unless you have modified the settings you should not run into this issue. Below we describe the error in more detail and how to easily change a single settings to fix the problem.

This Program Requires At Least Windows 2000 With SPTD 1.60 Or Higher. Kernel Debugger Must Be Deactivated

During the process of cleaning up a Windows 7 Ultimate x64 computer that is used in a development environment I started receiving an error during boot. 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.
