Sherpya has ported ImDisk to amd64 and ia64 platforms. We would appreciate if people with 64-bit machines and OS could test these versions:

http://oss.netfarm.it/win32/imdiskinst_amd64.zip
http://oss.netfarm.it/win32/imdiskinst_ia64.zip

There is no fully automated install yet, but it should be possible to extract the correct zip file and right-click on imdisk.inf and select 'Install', or run install.cmd.

* Added a "Filesystem" column to the list in the Control Panel applet.
* Corrected an error in the command line tool imdisk.exe. If the -p parameter was used with a virtual disk without a drive letter the program crashed. It now displays a message telling that a drive letter is required for the -p parameter to work.

There have been some changes made to ImDisk recently.

* It is now possible to set or reset the media characteristics removable and read-only for existing virtual disks.

* I/O delays have been removed from the I/O functions for virtual memory backed virtual disks. This means that the write performance for RAM-disks should be much better now.

Two minor changes has been made to ImDisk.

* The window style for the Control Panel applet has been changed so that it is now an "application window" and with a minimize button. This means that it shows up on the taskbar and can be minimized as well.
* The image size visualization for some common floppy sizes are now changed in the Control Panel applet to the more commonly used "thousands of KB". This is done for the floppy sizes 2,880 KB, 1,722 KB, 1,680 KB, 1,440 KB and 1,200 KB.

Got an e-mail from Sebastian Gottschalk who had found two buffer over-runs, one in the driver code that handles pre-loading of virtual devices from registry settings. (This could be seriously bad with a bit of bad luck.) I have fixed those now.

I have made some changes to the "Mount new" dialog in the Control Panel applet. Ideas by "tonedeaf" in the 911-cd forums.

Two changes:
* Fixed an error in the "mount new" dialog in the Control Panel applet. The unit selection radio buttons for offset in image files did not work correctly.
* Added broadcasting of WM_DEVICECHANGE messages when devices are about to be removed as an attempt to resolve this issue: TortoiseSVN incompatibility issue. This has caused that it has not been possible to remove ImDisk virtual drives on computers running such cache/indexing software.

I have now changed the icons in the Control Panel applet and added a right-click context menu to the device list.

It is now possible to type a negative size value on the command line when creating a virtual disk. This means that the size of the virtual disk will be the amount of free physical memory minus this value. This is useful when creating large RAM-disks where the size should depend on the amount of free memory.
