Drivers for USB Bridge?

After installing the latest ZRound software to a new computer, I cannot get the software to recognize the Giro-Z Bridge or Adapter.

Device Manager shows no drivers available for these devices on Windows 7. I see that it shows the new software includes drivers for Win 7, but doing a manual search for drivers finds nothing. Windows Update finds no drivers either.

Anyone know where I can get these drivers?

Thanks,
Hood

I was in your shoes when I updated to Win7/64 years ago. GiroZ original drivers are only supported on 32bits system. I "patched" the drivers package to allow run on 64bit machines. I work with them on win8.1/64.

Unfortunatelly the installation can be a bit tricky. On win7, the device is not recognized and windows doesn't ask you about the drivers but you can go to windows device manager, edit the device properties and click on the "update drivers" option. My patched drivers are placed in the folder "GiroZUSB" under the ZRound application directory.

It should work. You will be warned about installing unsigned drivers, it is normal, they are not digitally signed by the maker. On win8 the installation is harder as you must check an option to "allow unsigend drivers to install" on system settings and reboot.

Hope it helps.
