Re: Will ReadyCache have a driver for Windows 10?

Re: Will ReadyCache have a driver for Windows 10?

Thanks for posting Rmast, can you post brief steps on what you did to get it back up and running?

 

Currently using primocach which is working quite nicely (no random cache resets)

Re: Will ReadyCache have a driver for Windows 10?

I have just had anothe long discussion with SanDisk support for our region (UK etc) and basically go nowhere.

 

All they said really was " our engineering department is working on it ".

 

They would not give any timescales or anything - so unless I use a third party caching product I have a useless 32 Gb SSD in my machine taking up a SATA port.

 

I really have no confidence in SanDisk fixing this issue even though they could have easily have fixed it either while Windows 10 was being shipped as part of the Insider program or even after version 100240 was shipped - which actually ended up as the version they finally released with a couple of patches.

 

Any updates I will post here.

 

Regards

I don't have a configuration in which I can reproduce all steps, and don't know where anyone gets stuck.

 

My suggestion at this moment (for Windows 10 x64) to get the current install running would be:

 

Doubleclick on

C:\Program Files\Condusiv Technologies\ExpressCache\excfs\excfs.inf

and

C:\Program Files\Condusiv Technologies\ExpressCache\excsd\excsd.inf

 

Disable and uninstall PrimoCache if you installed that.

 

Reboot

remove the 29 GB volume in diskmanager

 

Run eccmd -partition

 

Start ExpressCache as you allways would. It should run now without annoying popup.

 

If it doesn't or you're anywhere between install and uninstall:

 

First, get the (un)install working by clearing Expresscache from registry and files.

 

If during (un)install the setup still complains there is a previous version installed find the

file 'expresscache.msi' on your (Windows) c:-drive during setup.

It must reside somewhere around %LOCALAPPDATA%\Temp with the most recent timestamp.

 

From (a copy of) the directory run 

msiexec /i expresscache.msi /Lv* output.txt

 

which will give a file output.txt, which contains a pointer to the obstructing remnants.

 

Uninstall and reinstall expresscache 1.3.2, and follow up the requested reboots.

 

Now continue at the suggestions at the top, so

 

Doubleclick on

C:\Program Files\Condusiv Technologies\ExpressCache\excfs\excfs.inf

and

C:\Program Files\Condusiv Technologies\ExpressCache\excsd\excsd.inf

Reboot

Run eccmd -partition to partition the 32 GB Sandisk SSD.

 

If you still experience issues with (un)install use Revo Uninstaller trial to remove all remnants with a managed uninstall, after reinstalling everything you installed to get things running.

 

Revo Uninstaller will lookup all files and registry-entries in the MSI that can probably be left by the uninstall.

 

That's it.

Please post if you succeed with this manual, or else, what eccmd -info shows... (probably still some licencing issue?)

Re: Will ReadyCache have a driver for Windows 10?

@rmast:

I didn't have the folder with the inf driver files but I did have a few alternate installs for ExpressCache, I tried one of those and eventually "setup_x64.exe" gave it to me.  I believe that one was posted in this thread.

 

I ran Revo Uninstaller first to get rid of any old files I had then installed it.  I could not run eccmd -partition, it just gave me some error every time and running eccmd -info told me nothing was being cached.  I right clicked and installed both of those inf files since double clicking opened them in a text editor.  Tried eccmd again and both still said the same.  I uninstalled it through Windows I believe and then grabbed ExpressCache 1.3.2 and ran that installer.  It took a long time to install the drivers during setup, like 5 minutes or something, it always gave me an error at that point before though which it didn't do this time.  Install finished fine and I restarted then opened ExpressCache which seems to be working.

 

I currently have 10gb cached and I've restarted a few times to make sure my cache wasn't going to randomly disappear.  So yes I have a working ExpressCache now, thank you.  I think it was a combination of those inf files and Revo Uninstaller.

Re: Will ReadyCache have a driver for Windows 10?

Some of the users have figured out ways to get it to work. I hope Sandisk folks are looking into the methods and hopefully release an installer that gets it done.

 

Right now, can't uninstall it and can't install version 1.3.2 back into the system.

 

Fast, man. We are waiting.

Re: Will ReadyCache have a driver for Windows 10?

I've still got the same issue. Can't install.

 

Still waiting for SanDisk to come back to me with a fix.

Still nothing. lol.

 

Are they playing hide and seek with us?

 

I bet the sandisk bosses don't really know about the whole broken

product and lazy support situation.
