Can't get TestDisk to work in Windows NT 4.0 ?

#1 Post by zxcvb » 23 Mar 2018, 00:32

Mr Grenier,

Many thanks for taking the time to develop and maintain the software.

I cannot get TestDisk 7.1 (Windows) to work in Windows NT 4.0 (sp 6a).

I keep getting the message "The procedure entry point AttachConsole could not be located in the dynamic link library windows KERNEL32.dll"

Am I doing something wrong?

FWIW, TestDisk for DOS can't operate in the protected WINNT 4.0 environment.

The compiler I am using now for Windows isn't compatible with NT 4.
Use TestDisk 7.0 instead.

Version 7.0 (Windows) gives the same message.

Version 6.14 (Windows) says "The procedure entry point FindFirstVolumeMountPointW could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dl"l

The 2006 version 6.3 (Windows) does however work on my system. When I have time I'll check other versions made between 2006 and 2013.
