USB driver Windows XP will not install

Any ideas? Get to the point in the process where you tell it where the driver is and it just says it cannot install it.

Really aggravating, this whole subject including the Elanscan site is just full of dead links.

The web host that held the ALDL website has shut down. Geoff has moved everything and will be on very soon with the new links. Which drivers did you try to install? What version of Windows?

REMEMBER: You should not have the interface plugged in while you are installing the drivers. For XP, if you plugged in the interface and Windows tried to install drivers, then go into Device Manager and remove the broken driver. It probably will be at the bottom with a big yellow question mark. Just right-click on it and select uninstall. For the newer Windows versions, the process is similar but I don't know the specific steps.

Try this link: http://www.alanmcnicol.dsl.pipex.com/US ... tions.html

To get the NEWEST FTDI drivers go to http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm and download the executable 2.08.28 WHQL Certified driver.

The executable is http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/CDM/CDM20828_Setup.exe Download this, don't run across the web. For XP, this should be able to run by right clicking it (after downloading it) and selecting "run as". For Windows Vista, Win7 or Win8 you probably should use the run as admin/supervisor option. I don't have Win7 installed anywhere but installing drivers requires admin rights.

Sorry - I hadn't realised that some of the links had made themselves absolute rather than relative (so pointed to the old website) and it wasn't until I purged my cache that I found out all the missing links! It should all be working now - let me know if you find any more problems!

Ok, new drivers installed correctly, seems to be working and logging, have to read some other threads for more operational questions
