Truecrypt and Dev Preview? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does TrueCrypt work with the Windows 8 Developer Preview x64? If it doesn't...does anyone know what to do with the 'this device cannot use a trusted TPM' or whatever message for Bitlocker? I really prefer TrueCrypt though...

  • Hello,

    Can you see if your trusted platform module (TPM) on the machine is enabled? You can follow the below steps.

    Click on start --> Type "tpm.msc" --> Press Enter --> You can check if the status of the TPM here is enabled.


    Did you know that you can enable Bitlocker just by using a password without having to use the TPM on Windows 8? Steps to follow are below:

    · Open “Local group policy editor” . Click on Start àType “gpedit.msc” and press Enter

    · On the left pane, expand the ‘Computer Configuration’ node àExpand the “Administrative templates” node àExpand “Windows Components àExpand “Bitlocker drive encryption” àClick on “Operating system drives”

    · On the right pane, double click on the policy “Configure use of passwords for operating system drives” àClick on ‘Enabled’ àClick on ‘OK

    · On the right pane, double click on the policy “Require additional authentication at startup” àClick on ‘Enabled’ àClick on ‘OK’

    · When you try to enable bitlocker now from the Control Panel, you will see an option to enable Bitlocker using “Password”.
