I am an Alcohol 120% Registered user for a long time, and I always can update my software version to fix compatibility issue form past to Windows 10.
But seems not this time so I decided to report the issue.
Since Windows 10 Creators Update, I have this issue with Alcohol.
This is the steps how to reproduce the issue in my case.
1.Created a ISO to mount or prepare a Disk that can use "Read sub-channel data from current disk" option in Alcohol 120% Image making wizard, I use "AcronisBootableMedia" to test this issue. It can be created by Acronis True Image 2016 app as a bootable CD/iso.
2.After mount the ISO or disk, use Image making wizard to created a .mds format file. Remember to use "Read sub-channel data from current disk" option. In this case it will created .mds and .mdf file.
3.Use archive app like Winrar or 7-zip or Windows archive feature to archive these two files to an archived file(.rar or .zip).
4.Use archive app to open this archived file.
Then I have chance to see the archive app stops responding /freezes.
It seems not all this situation have the issue but it has very high chance to freeze archive app while the archive file contains .mds file.
Also it seems not related to SPTD, once I removed Alcohol 120% (Virtual SCSI driver),even SPTD is still installed, all are fine.
I do not know how it happens, only know if I removed Alcohol then the issue will gone, and only (some,not all) .mds format file contains archive file has the issue. So I have to see it as an Alcohol related issue for now.
Windows 10 64bit 1703(15063.332)
Alcohol 120% 188.8.131.5202 Registered.
Thanks If anyone can take a look at this issue.
