ForceASPI is a useful suite of scripts that were designed to install the latest Adaptec ASPI layer on your Intel x86 (or compatible) 32bit Windows operating system.
ForceASPI ignores the system requirements which are imposed by Adaptec's own installer and allows you to install Adaptec ASPI 4.71.2 on your PC regardless of your hardware or software configuration.
The scripts which make up ForceASPI will automatically detect your operating system and install the appropriate files correctly. The following operating systems have been (breifly) tested...
Windows 98 Second Edition
Windows NT 4.0
Why use ForceASPI ?
These are the main reasons I created ForceASPI and why you might want to use it...
No ASPI Layer in Windows 2000 and XP
Windows 9x and Windows ME ASPI Layer sucks
Many CD Digital Audio rippers require a working ASPI layer
Many DVD Rippers require a working ASPI layer
Most CD-R wirting application require a working ASPI layer
I have been applying this hack manually on my own systems and decided to automate the process and let everyone benefit
Plenty of other reasons I cant be bothered to list
