    It won’t work with window 7.. It keeps telling me to restart and when I do it just keeps repeating step 1 over and over again, never completing the download. Is there a way to install it? Or can you tell me a good alternative?

  2. AskYourMom:

    i also use windows 7 and i t doesn’t work

  3. Ushiro:

    I have a question, I was wondering about the steps that you’ve post here.
    Something is different with mine like when you were suppose to uncheck the things like in step 4, the discription saids that uncheck the windows gadget,browser toolbar, DAEMON tools default search provider.

    It didn’t appear in my PC

  4. zakius:

    latest version of dt have optional advanced emulation so you dont have to restart during instalation

  5. Unknown:

  8. Kilik:

    hey admin, how many times I should reboot my PC to install this daemon tool, I’ve already restarted my PC 4 times!
    It said: please reboot your computer before install this program.

  9. Balou:

    So I downloaded this game excisting of 5 parts and I downloaded Daemon Tools, but how the hack do get this game to work, or to appear as a game?

    Hello, i have a question to picture 4 of the install explanation. you say i should disable the three marked options if i don´t want to install spyware but these three options were not shown when i tried to install it (perhaps its a newer version). does that mean that they are already disabled oder do i have no other choice than to install them?

  11. kirarin:

    i have a question.

    does it requires the mount thingy?

  12. TheDarkWolfKnight:

    i just downloaded it, my laptop uses windows 7, but the download link came up with the lite version.

  13. Pickles:

    on step 4 it it has new check boxes and on one of them it says “file associations” do i keep it checked? Is it spyware?

    • admin:

      No. File associations basically tell windows that when you double click on .iso file to open it in specific program. I’ll have to update this guide later to reflect changes to their installer i guess.

  14. kate:

    i downloaded daemon tools but when i go to run the setup i click ok then the next part goes away when it comes up and then nothing happens

  15. Amy:

    To play the games using Daemon Tools do i have to change the files from rar. to iso.? and if so how?

  16. Shawn:

    What is daemon tools used for?

  17. Shawn:

    Plus, do you need it for clannad?

  18. Shawn:

    And is there a free version for it? Not lite?

  19. goldhead4:

    i download the file “getfile” but it asks me to open it with another program is there something else i have to download?

  20. john:

    Well when i downloaded it its a new dt version,after i finished to install and rebooting the system dt is on my desktop

  21. sniper:

    Please give us the list of games which require the dt.

  22. Alex:

    I am trying to download the links to make it into the game, but the rar file type is not shown of the DAEMON Tools Lite program. how can i make this work??

    • Alex:

      ok, i figured out how to do this, but now where do i put the patch info and additional in with the games so that they work? everything i have tried has failed. it doesnt help that my japanese is still lacking so i cant read all the kanji to figure it all out.

  23. Kushula:

    Admin, Is there a tutorial how to install a downloaded 3-file game? and if not, could you make one( I never did this before)

  24. ethan:

    does anyone know how to install any of the games without the cd? I feel like a total idiot for not knowing how…….

  25. J:

    Can you guys update the directions because that installer is sketchy as fuck.

    Can’t you guys just upload your daemon tools folder from your program file?

  26. Roger Gordon:

    Four days ago I downloaded Daemon Tools Lite. Upon installation it also installed Face Smooch which is a malware program, specifically a browser hijacker. See for details. The latest version of Face Smooch is very hard to remove. I have been going back and forth with the support staff at my anti-virus software provider. After running multiple tools over the last few days I will probably remove the last piece of malware tonight. You just can’t remove Face Smooch. Face Smooch downloads several other malware programs after it is installed. These different malware programs each have to be deleted by separate tools. If you don’t get them all, they will supposedly regenerate.

    Anyway after spending multiple hour dealing with all of the malware installed on my computer by Daemon Tools Lite I still don’t have a working version of Daemon Tools Lite. Is there another optical drive emulator from another company that you would recommend using in lieu of Daemon Tools Lite?

    Thanks for your help.

    I would also like to know an alternative for Daemon Tools Lite. I had an older version on my laptop that worked fine for visual novels but my laptop died earlier in the week. I’m now reinstalling all my favorite VNs on a new computer and running into a speed bump since I don’t want to install this new version at all.

  28. Rye:

    Are there any other programs I can use to mount the games? Daemon Tools has malware and stuff on the installer now T~T

  29. Zecxel:

    Hello, I was wondering if any of these work on a mac? Thank you

    • ayee:

      not too sure about daemon tools but if you have an app called winesomething? sorry cant remember the name you should be able to run it but id look up a proper walkthrough as i cant tell you as ive never used a mac in my life 🙂

  30. JustAPasserby:

    Admin, there are other mounting softwares that could be used and for free

    i am using OSFmount now, its free and so far so good

    daemon tools is no longer free, and they seems to give malware from some reports. i suggest you give new link instead

    and for those who are interest : ( there are other mounting software other than this of course

    i simply wish to help, nothing else.excuse me

    Downloaded Daemon Tools Lite, and during the installation it got about 1/3 of the way done and just won’t continue. It never finishes. All it says is “Install core files”. What do I do?

  32. Gamer-kun:
