hmmm, can you go back and touch up the solder joints for the resistors and diodes around the USB connector?

I don't see either a resistor or jumper in place for R4 and R7 (resistors for SpokePOV, jumpers otherwise).

OK that is a different message than you said before!

"The specified location does
> not contain information about your hardware.( when browsing and selecting
> the .INF file)"


we could try replacing the chip - email support@adafruit and request a new USBtinyISP chip

that is when i try to install the driver. In windows when the hardware is marked as unknown device it is because the driver is missing. I go to the device manager and right click on "unknown Device" and click properties, then i click update drivers and direct to the folder that i downloaded from ladyada. That is when i get this error not contain information about your hardware.( when browsing and selecting the .INF file)"

I have a question: does USBTinyISP turn on if it is not connected to the target program chip. I am trying to program an Atmega 32 with this.
