i've followed the instructions on this page to the letter http://www.ladyada.net/make/x0xb0x/software/index.html
but i keep getting an error in Win7 that says: "The program can't start because MSVCR71.dll is missing"
so went to FTDI d/l'ed and installed the driver. seemed to all go smoothly according to instruction, UNTIL i opened the contorl software to bootload, and i get the SAME message as before about the missing driver! arggghhh!
i bought the kit from Willzyx w/ the USB chip pre-soldered
on my Vista machine i can start control, but it isn't associating my xoxbox with a COM port, serial or otherwise. the hex file doesn't seem to help, either.
this is thoroughly baffling. installations of all sorts had
become so much easier until just recently - my A&H ZED r16 was fine for a year and a half and is now having major problems too.
my Win7 machine is BRAND NEW (lenovo H405) wtf is going on here!
it's missing a driver, or getting some annoying error i have no idea how to solve.
UGGGGHHH.i thought win95 and all the driver troubles was last century but here i am wrestling with a banned USB driver.
