Wd smartware.exe won't run

Hi again

when I try to run the WD Smartware.exe file, I get the following error:

“Application not started from drive” 

I’m running (or trying to) this from a My Passport Essential SE 1 Tb on a Win7 laptop Service Pack 1 with 4 Gb of RAM.

Any ideas?


first make sure to update the firmware…

then make sure you are running from the drive :smileyvery-happy:… no, but seriously…  if you formatted the drive and downloaded the installer please follow the steps on the link bellow to run the smartware cd image ’
