Max - did it work for Virtual control, or just to run Arc-Patrol?

All functions worked just fine after I copied the .inf file to my C:windows/inf folder.

Is this on WIN 8 or Win 7 ? Your original post was Win 7 - where the above works fine. Win8 works differently with unsigned drivers.

Win 7. Assumed that it would also work with win 8. After you copied file what message did you get? I do have a win 8 machine i'll try it on there to get a better picture of whats going on.

I copied it to the desktop and ran win's install driver , or find driver utility. You get an unsigned driver message. You can get it too load, but it's not as easy as just accepting as unsigned in win7.

Like I said - Google and find hot to print it or have it handy on another machine. It's not hard, just a lot of steps.
