Mount VHD with Windows 7 via network

May 17, 2010 at 1:23 PM


can it be that windows 7 doesn't like the creator version 1.0 in the footer, cause I have the problem that windows tells me (only when mounting via network!!!???) "The version doesn't support the file format version." (<= Translated from german).
But the file format version is not the problem, when I patch the creator version to 6.1 (which is used in vhds created with that windows 7 machine), it works.
The file format version is in both kind of vhds (so windows 7 created or discutils created) the same (1.0).

When I copy a not working vhd to the locale filesystem, it can be mounted normaly.

The original error message reads: "Die Version unterstützt die Version des Dateiformats nicht."

Any ideas?

Hi Ephraim,

I've uploaded a change that tweaks the creator version to 6.1 - let me know if that works for you.
