Re: Zadig problem?


Marion, Alan et al.

Many thanks for all your suggestions.

What eventually appears to have made everything run as smooth as silk is to just disregard Zadig and let Windows install a driver.

The dongle appears as Bulk-In, Interface (Interface 0) in Device Manager and the driver provider as

If I then run Zadig and let it overwrite Windows’ offering, the dongle appears as Bulk-In, Interface (Interface 0) (Interface 0) and the driver provider again as…

Having installed the Zadig driver over the Windows one nothing appears to have changed â€" SDR# still appears to run properly.

SO, the above begs the question â€" do I just let Windows do its own thing and leave things at that (shades of if it ain’t broken don’t try and mend it…) or should I then install Zadig afterwards?

Hopefully the above will work on my other pc, I’ll find out later this evening.

Thanks again for all your help and encouragement.

Mike - I know my XP Pro MCE is well past its sell time… I tried W7 (both the grandkids have it on their laptops) but I could never get used to it. Having retired fifteen years ago I suppose I’m getting a bit long in the tooth to try new things â€" apart maybe from SDR - so I stick to things I know and understand â€" well understand ‘reasonably' well!! If and when this old Dell dies I’ll maybe take the plunge…

Thanks guys.

John's post reminded me of what I had to do. John may have other
problems in addition. Hope he resolves them soon......

You may need to install the remote controller driver, so Windows
go looking for "new Hardware". I had to do that to solve a similar
problem on my computer. Somebody tell John what the remote controller
software identifier is, please.

You may be right. But XP will just put that out of the way as an Unknown
Device if John lets it.
