A way to work with SoftIce on XP SP3 through VMware

Hi to all,
after a couple of month I return to write on my blog…

This time I want to provide you a very usefull pack with everything needed to work with SoftIce on XP SP3 through VMware.

Follow these steps:

1. Copy compuware.dat to your C:\windows\system32\drivers folder;

2. Start Autorun.exe and while you are installing, You use the serial: 7888-5842DD-DD ( you can also use the keygen provided with this pack ) ;

3. When you must choose for option 14-day trial or select the file license, choose the file license, don’t choose 14-daytrial!
Make the path to : C:\windows\system32\drivers\compuware.dat
Finish the installation;

4. Restart;

5. Copy OSINFO.DAT to your C:\windows\system32\drivers folder and overwrite if it exists;

6. Disable DEP by modifying c:\boot.ini


7. Modify *.vmx:

svga.maxFullscreenRefreshTick = 5
vmmouse.present = "FALSE"

8. Copy dbghelp.dll and symsrv.dll to C:\Programmi\Compuware\DriverStudio [or DriverSuite]\Softice\SymbolRetriever directory and overwrite if them exist;

Now run SIce and it’ll work [ hopefully 😉 ] fine on NT and XP on VMware.

Here the link to download the Pack: SIce Pack

Thx to all ExeTool’s Member but a special thx for WhoCares!!!

Sorry for my bad English. 😛

Bye, see you to the next post =)

    Last 2 days I was pulling my hair to figure-out on how to run SICE on Vmware… Though this post is almost 2 years old, I found your post timely. This was a wonderful explanation. I can go to bed peacefully 😉 Thank you very much for your post and share.

    Kind regards,

    Hi! I have one problem because I don’t know if I have to save boot.ini file as boot.vmx or I have to find and modify an existing file. If I have to find this existing file I have one more question. What is the name of the file which I have to look for??

    • Antelox Says:

      Hi “new”!
      – boot.ini file is under Guest OS (Windows XP SP3 in this case) located in C:\
      – *.vmx file is the VMware configuration file and is under Host OS, located where you have decided to save your Virtual XP. VMX file is named like Guest OS name.

      If you have other kind of questions, no problem. =)
