ForceASPI is a lightweight tool that enables you to install the latest Adaptec ASPI layer on your operating system.

ASAPI, or Advanced SCSI Programming Interface is created to regulate the communication between SCSI driver modules and SCSI peripherals. This means that the proper functionality of hardware devices and software is highly dependent on the existence of this layer.

The application comes as a set of script files that you can run using the command-line interpreter. These scripts enable you to install the Adaptec ASPI layer on your computer by ignoring your software and hardware configuration.

Using the Adaptec ASPI layer is basically an automated task. The only thing you need to do is run the appropriate batch file. Your operating system is automatically identified and the appropriate process is executed.

ForceASPI is a tool designed to work with Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000 and XP. Which is actually good news since Windows 2000 and XP are not provided with the layer by default. This makes various incompatibility issues between hardware components and software applications a big possibility. Apart from adding the layer, ForceASPI also enables you to install a better version on systems that normally are not able to support it.

With the new layer added, you get to solve issues that you might have with DVD and audio rippers.

ForceASPI does offer a solution to a rather complicated problem regarding hardware and software compatibility but it’s created for operating systems that are now either extinct or on the verge of being, so its use is rather limited.
