It may be necessary to extract the installer .msi file from the downloaded zip file before installing. If installing directly from the zip file by double clicking the contained .msi file, a compression/archiving program may open it and display its content. An install cannot be initiated that way.

VolumeNode is compatible with all Windows versions from Windows 10 to XP.

The program is uninstalled from the Windows Programs & Features facility. Uninstall does not remove the small amount of data saved by VolumeNode to The Windows registry. The user can manually remove the unwanted data using regedit.exe by deleting the registry key: Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VolumeNode

Runtime error

A referral was returned from the server

This error may pop up on VolumeNode start. This indicates CursorNode is not installed, or it has been uninstalled, or it is out-of-date. CursorNode is not required in order to use VolumeNode. However, the authenticode certificates installed by CursorNode is used by VolumeNode. To correct this error, two options are available:

1. Install the latest CursorNode version

2. Install the latest CursorNode version. Then, use certmgr.msc to export the "Freshnet Ltd (UK) CSA" certificate from the "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" store. After that, CursorNode can be uninstalled. The last and final step is to double click on the saved certificate to install it back to where it was exported from.
