TC-08 Driver SDK Manual Install Doesn't work in Windows 7

Post by markskiba » Wed Aug 24, 2011 5:23 pm

We received a TC-08 driver update to support Windows 7 (software and reference CD-ROM R.49 USB SDK located in We had the driver installation integrated into our application install but the manual driver update instructions (listed in USBReadme.txt) that used to work in XP with the older drivers doesn't work with Windows 7.

After following the steps for manual install, when you plug in a TC-08 the driver setup fails with a "missing file" error. If you install your data logger software, the installation of a TC-08 works ok. Looks like your SDK instructions/Files needs an update.

Following are the instructions in the USBReadme .....

Before using the examples for USB devices, kernel
drivers must be installed. The simples way to install the kernel
drivers is to install PicoScope or PicoLog. Instructions on manually
installing these drivers is as follows:

1 - Copy picopp.inf to \inf
2 - Copy picopp.sys to \system32\drivers
3 - Plug the device in and follow the new hardware wizard.

The instructions will be updated in the next release. In the meantime the following will work

Code: Select all

Open the 'winusb' directory in the root directory of the SDK folder and copy the x86 directory located within to your desktop.
Copy the 3 non-text files from the picopp folder into the 'x86' folder on your desktop.
Run the DPInst.exe file in the 'x86' folder - click Yes to any prompts to continue and follow the prompts in the Device Driver Installation Wizard.
Click 'Finish' when the Wizard completes.
