Verify installation of the GEARAspi driver set

On NT 4.0 1. Verify that the following files exist: GEARAspi.dll in Winnt\System32 Gearsec.exe in Winnt\System32 GearAspiSys.sys in Winnt\System32\Drivers 2. Verify that the following registry keys and values exist: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\GearAspiSys DisplayName (REG_SZ) = GearAspiSys ErrorControl (REG_DWORD) = 1 Group (REG_SZ) = filter ImagePath (REG_EXPAND_SZ) = system32\drivers\gearaspisys.sys Start (REG_DWORD) = 1 Type (REG_DWORD) = 1 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\GEARSecurity ErrorControl (REG_DWORD) = 0 ImagePath (REG_EXPAND_SZ) = system32\gearsec.exe ObjectName (REG_SZ) = LocalSystem Start (REG_DWORD)= 2 Type (REG_DWORD) = 1

On 32bit Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, Vista, Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 1. Verify that the following files exist: GearAspi.dll in Windows\System32 GearAspiWDM.sys in Windows\System32\Drivers GEARAspiWDM.inf in Windows\inf gearaspiwdmx86.cat in Windows\system32\CatRoot\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E500C04FC295EE}and/or in Windows\system32\DRVSTORE\GEARAspiWD_<GUID> 2. Verify that the following registry keys and values exist: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\GearAspiWDM DisplayName (REG_SZ): GEARAspiWDM ErrorControl (REG_DWORD): 1 Group (REG_SZ): filter ImagePath (REG_EXPAND_SZ): system32\drivers\gearaspiwdm.sys Start (REG_DWORD): 3 Type (REG_DWORD): 1 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shar edDll Name: Windows\System32\GEARAspi.dll Type: REG_DWORD

Value: greater than zero Name: Windows\System32\Drivers\GearAspiWDM.sys Type: REG_DWORD Value: greater than zero 3. In the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} key make sure that there exists an UpperFilters value of type REG_MULTI_SZ. UpperFilters should contain GEARAspiWDM so that it is after the 'redbook' entry (if it exists) but before any Roxio driver entries ('Cdralw2k' and 'pwd_2k, if they exist). 4. In the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{6D8078847D21-11CF-801C-08002BE10318} key make sure that there exists an UpperFilters value of type REG_MULTI_SZ. UpperFilters should contain GEARAspiWDM 5. In the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{CE5939AEEBDE-11D0-B181-0000F8753EC4} key make sure that there exists an UpperFilters value of type REG_MULTI_SZ. UpperFilters should contain GEARAspiWDM Note that REG_MULTI_SZ string values use UNICODE characters (double byte) and the entire string value must be terminated with a double NULL character. 6. In the system information file (enter msinfo32.exe in Start | Run...) verify that GEARAspiWDM is listed under System Summary | Software Environment | System Drivers. The settings for the driver should be as follows: Name: gearaspiwdm Description: GEAR ASPI Filter Driver File: Windows\System32\Drivers\gearaspiwdm.sys Type: Kernel Driver Started: Yes Start Mode: Manual State: Running Status: OK Error Control: Normal Accept Pause: No Accept Stop: Yes
