SoftIce Problem.

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
Hi all,

I want to load SoftIce (Debugger) while booting on Windows 2000.
I am using 2195 build of Win2K. SoftIce doesn't support this build other than previous builds of 2038.
As per the instructions given by SoftIce's NT5Boot.txt file, I have downloaded the keyboard driver and replaced the system supplied
driver with the downloaded one and installed SoftIce, but the Keyboard is still not functioning.
Then I have tried with loading SoftIce after boot option. But system displays blue screen after loading SoftIce mannually.
Could anyone of u have the solution for SoftIce problem?

Thanks in advance,
Syed.

    Hi all,

    Here's the key for that SoftIce problem.
    Yes , You are right. I don't know the reason but the system could not work properly if you are using SoftICE on Win2k. To avoid that you have to do:

    1. Start the system without SoftICE.
    2. Run its Symbol loader component and do some work on its initialization:
    - Open "SoftICE Initialization Settings" from "Edit" menu
    - Select "Troubleshooting" and check:
    - "Disable Num Lock and Caps Lock programming"
    - "Do not patch keyboard driver"
    - "Disable mouse support"
    3. Close Symbol loader and run its "IcePack" component.
    4. Enable SoftIce to start at boot time and restart your system.
    For now, everything should be okay.

    I hope, this one is what you are looking for.

    Doru
