Hi, I have a pair of Wixels I’ve used successfully on a Windows XP machine. I recently installed the Pololu software on another Windows XP machine and followed the driver install steps when I plugged it in.
But when I tried to run the configuration utility it got the dreaded winusb.dll error. I was fairly sure I followed the steps I did before. But I realized that the Wixel wasn’t in bootloader mode, and I’m wondering if that messed up the driver install.
I wet back to a restore point and tried the whole thing again, but no luck. Microsoft is not forthcoming about how to install this DLL on your own, and I found several broken links on their support site. I imagine that’s because Windows XP is now unsupported.
Do you know of a way to get this to work? This laptop only has 1.5 GB of RAM, so a Windows 7 upgrade isn’t really something I want to try.
Update: If I configure the Wixels on another machine, I can use them as a serial wireless link on the new machine. But I can’t run the config program.
