    Hi Guys

    I too have problems running under Windows 7 x64, I can load the driver
    OK and it all works but if I reboot the PC I get a runtime error 5. From
    there I can reload the driver again and off I go.

    Is there a way to not assign buttons and have the relevant backlight not
    illuminated ??

    I wonder how many other SWC Users are left handed, probably the sort of
    thing to run a poll on...

    Thanks heaps for creating the driver to keep these alive under the new

    Ok, I have a solution for getting it to work in Vista Home Premium 64bit
    (including the lights!:cool:)

    - I plugged in the device and it said installed but didn't do anything
    - when I checked the device manager I had one device not recognised. I
    right clicked and selected update drivers
    - then selected look on internet for recommended driver.
    - Weirdly, it found a driver and installed it. the driver is *ATK0110
    ACPI Utility* that was installed and it now shows in the System
    - I then installed the bodyprint software WEB/Installers/StrategicSetupv1.3.exe
    - Worked and installed like a charm
    All the lights work too :)
