First version of VHD Attach was written in .NET Framework 3.5 SP1. I figured that since Windows 7 comes with it, it has WCF and it is new, there was no reason not to use it.
Just to prove me wrong there came ThinPC. It comes without any .NET Framework and only version that can be installed is 4.0. Yep, that is one that breaks backward compatibility with 3.0 and 3.5. Well, this version is now written in .NET Framework 2.0.
Those who need to create virtual disks had that feature in 3.0x but only for dynamic disks. With this version you can create fixed disks also.
Some GUI refreshing was in order but do not expect anything revolutionary. It is just an evolution, baby.
Download is available from within application or from these pages.

Is it possible to run this program on Vista machine with .NET Framework installed?
I am afraid not, API needed for program to function is available only from Windows 7 onward.
OK – understand. Windows 7 it is then.
I have installed newer version 3.11.4439.41876 on a Toshiba laptop with Windows 7 Ultimate (6.1.7601 SP1) with .NET Framework 2.0.50727.5446 and I am unable to open VHD files created earlier today by the same operating system or the ones created day before by Vista Ultimate.
Exact speeling of the error message is like this:
Cannot open “filename”.
The version does not support this version of the file format
Do you know what could be wrong?
From this I understand that you are trying to attach backup vhds?
I am not sure how Windows writes these and it might be that they are not supported at all (as message would suggest).
