There has been a change in the way a package file registers in VisualStudio 2005. The DLL we use needs to be updated. Here is a step-by-step solution.

Install DriverStudio and, when the 1904 error occurs, choose the Ignore button.

Continue the install as normal. Once it is completely installed.

Cut and paste this link into a browser and download the file.

ftp://ftp.compuware.com/pub/driverstudio/outgoing/patch/DSDDKEnv.zip

Extract it into a temp directory. Copy the file DSDDKEnv8.dll into the <INSTALL_DIR>\DriverStudio\Common\Bin directory. Select "yes" if prompted to copy over an existing one. Copy the file DSDDKEnv8UI.dll into the <INSTALL_DIR>\DriverStudio\Common\Bin\1033 directory. Select "yes" if prompted to copy over an existing one.

Then unregister the older version Go to start->run and type

regsvr32 -u "<INSTALL_DIR>\DriverStudio\Common\Bin\dsddkenv8.dll

Then register the new copy Go to start->run and type

regsvr32 "<INSTALL_DIR>\DriverStudio\Common\Bin\dsddkenv8.dll

The DriverStudio menu should now be part of the VisualStudio 2005 menu.</TD>
