  1. Hi guys,

    I own this (¿prehistoric?) device and I reaaally like it.
    But recently I upgraded my computer and move on to Vista SP1 (32 bits) for
    several reasons.

    But I find that the (¡prehistoric!) software won't work.

    It won't even install, the setup.exe just stays there without doing nothing.
    And I have no way to configure the device.

    Is ironic that, when moving to Windows Vista, the only device I have
    problems with is from Microsoft... :mad:

    Any ideas how to make this work?

  2. As I recall, gameports are not supported in Vista so there is no way to
    install a driver for a device that uses a gameport. Perhaps a serial port
    adaptor might work.

  4. Have you tried running the setup by rightclicking on the setup icon and
    choosing Run As Administrator? Have you used the troubleshooting page?;en-us;1016

    There is also a newsgroup.

  5. Hello, thanks for your reply.

    To run the setup as admin was my first shot. But nothing.
    I searched the support page but there is nothing about problems installing
    the drivers...
