TrueCrypt may fail on Windows 64 bit platforms

Post by FredM on Mon Mar 08, 2010 10:34 pm

Problem

Starting TrueCrypt from the Lupo PenSuite (2010.02 Full) on an x64 Windows System may fail with a message similar to 'truecrypt-x64.sys' cannot be found. Then TrueCrypt fails to start.

Reason

truecrypt-x64.sys is missing as well in Full Suite (2010.02) as in the TrueCrypt (v6.3a) package available on http://www.lupopensuite.com/suitefull.htm.

More Information

On some x64 systems it seems not to be a difference if truecrypt-x64.sys does exist or not.

Workaraound

Download TrueCrypt 6.3a from http://www.truecrypt.org/downloads, in wizard select the Extract Mode and copy the extracted truecrypt-x64.sys to the \Apps\TrueCrypt\ Directory of Lupo PenSuite.

Solution

I'd like to propose to add truecrypt-x64.sys to TrueCrypt package as well on website as in Lupo PenSuite.

Version Information
Lupo PenSuite 2010.02
TrueCrypt (v6.3) package on Lupo avaylable on Lupo's website

I'd like to create an additional "64bit package", that extracted in the Suite folder add all available supports to use Suite apps under 64bit systems. Can you help me to find various files needed? For example QDir, CCleaner and others have a separated exe, TrueCrypt and others has only separated files..

I did start most of the packages of Lupo PenSuite 2010.02 on 32 and 64 bit platforms. I didn't find any problem - except with TrueCrypt.

If you could give me further instruction I can certainly help you to find the files needes.

And if I'll find a further incompatibility I'll send you a report - of course. :-)

I'm not sure, was that what you asked for?

A propos 64 bit software:
In general all 32 bit apllications run on 64 bit platforms. There is only one exception: Device drivers.

Because of TrueCrypt needs to install a device driver the 32 bit version fails.

I think all other applications from Lupo PenSuite will run as well on 32 bit as on 64 bit platforms. So I expect no further incompatibilities.

Yes, but some software like CCleaner, Recuva, Defraggler, QDir.. has also official 64 bit versions (in some case included with 32 bit one, that I have removed to save space). But now I'm considering to create a pack with all these software (even if are only a few, compared with the entire collection), to allow a complete support of the Suite also on 64 bit systems.
So, if you want, you could only check what apps has these separated files and report them here.

ps: if you want, we could also integrate your useful posts in a section of the website (eventually of the FAQ) as "most common problems and their solutions"..
