I am trying to install the "firepro" driver to be able to use a pointgrey camera on my computer. I am trying to install it by clicking on it in the devices tree>right clicking>choose update driver>browse my computer for software>use disk>browse
Then I am getting the driver from the Pointgrey folder. When I click next it tells me "the folder doesn't contain a compatible software driver for your device. If the folder contains a driver, make sure it is designed to work with windows 32 bit systems.
According to pointgrey I do have the 32 bit version of their software installed. They remoted in and tried a bunch of things but couldn't figure it out. In the end they said I needed to get a Firewire PCIe card that had a LSI chipset instead of a VIA chipset. Does this sound right? Why would this make a difference in installing a driver.
I am running Windows 7, 64 bit
I have also tried to install the 64 bit firepro driver and I get the same error except it says make sure the folder contains a driver to work with windows 64 bit systems
I have opened up the .inf file and when I read through it, it does list LSI and TI chipsets in the file. Is it possible that this is the reason its not letting me install, seems weird.
Any help would be appreciated before I go buy this PCIe card.
