When the LaserBoard is unpowered I am able to use the smoothieware-usb-driver-v1.1.exe installer and get a succesful instilation. There’s no way to do a manual update because there’s no Smoothieboard in the device manager yet.
But once the LaserBoard is powered the OS detects the new USB device and initiates a driver instilation, at this point it fails to install, even though the drivers were loaded previously.
A manual install through the device manager also fails.
It looks like several other people running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit are also having similar issues with their smoothieboards.
"Just a post for anyone that finds this issue and possibly for someone in the dev community to fix.
I was having problems getting the windows drivers for smoothieware to work on a Win7 Ultimate x64 build.
Turns out the 1.1 driver inf file has a missing line in the vista 64 section as follows:
If you add this to the smoothiware.inf file the driver should install fine.
