Driver installation in Windows 7
« on: October 27, 2009, 06:40:05 pm »

Hi,

unfortunately I have not been successful in installing the device driver for the GH-561 on Windows 7 so far.

Initially I had tried the setup from CD, until you let me know that I should install via the .inf file for Windows 7.

So I downloaded the .inf file (stmcdc.inf) and even rebuild my Win 7 (32 Bit) fresh.

I then connect the device (powered on) and windows tells me there is no driver found. I go to device manager where the device "STM32 Virtual Com Port" shows with an exclamation mark.
I select there to udpate the driver and point windows to the directory with the stmcdc.inf.
Windows gives a warning that the driver is not signed - and I tell windows to still install it.

After windows finished the device unfortunately shows in device manager with an error:
"The device driver was installed but the device could not be started (Code 10)". This error persists after a reboot.

Any advice what to do?

I also tried on Windows 7 (64Bit) but here windows does not even recognize the .inf as a valid driver. I think this is caused by the sections in the .inf only having ".nt" as platform and not ".ntamd64". Maybe removing the limitation of ".nt" could work around this issue but I did not try it, as the .inf is also not working for me on 32bit.

Hope you find a solution for this - I will setup a Windows Vista VM to continue to get the software to run there.

Thanks and best regards - Pwei

PS: I havenīt been able yet to upgrade the firmware for the same reason of the missing driver ...

Hi Pwei,

Sorry for my late response.
Finally, vendor has released the all-in-one USB driver, you can go http://www.gs-sport.com/pro_dl.php?en_product_id=2&en_product_cnt_id=19 for downloading.
So, please try again and upgrading firmware and don't heasitate to let me know if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Geoffrey

Look carefully at the beginning and make sure the boot sequence looks like a DVD player. I have found from time to time, Windows 95, remove the boot device is normal. Wait 3 minutes. off, install the cable of the agreements to ensure the selection of devices. Master or slave. Start a DVD player that you like.

It sounds interesting, likes wait for 5 minutes for my slow PC. :(
