Win7E 32 system: volume cannot be locked and unmounted, if paging file is enabled RRS feed

  • Question

  • It perfectly worked for 64 version of Windows 7 Embedded, but once I prepared 32 version with the same set of packages, I cannot do that.

    I need it to enable HORM.

    To lock and unmount volume I use kernel32.dll 

    DeviceIoControl  with FSCTL_LOCK_VOLUME and FSCTL_DISMOUNT_VOLUME control codes.

    So, how I could overhelm it?

    P.S. Windows version has installed only few updates to safe disk space (harsh conditions), so probably it was fixed sometime. But who knows in which package?
