Greaseweazle - Windows 7 x64 problems.

I have a Greaseweazle V4. It works perfectly with Windows 10 x64 on our main pc.

But I have an old laptop made around 2014, used to belong to my late father. I just cannot get windows 10 on it at all! it refuses to install. Still trying to figure out why. It currently has windows 7 x64 which works fine. virtually every usb device works with it no issues, but not the greaseweazle.

I keep hitting the same snag over and over. I get a failure pop-up window with an address range - 0xc000007b. The gw.exe and a gui add-on both refuse to work! I have followed all the steps outlined for the wiki v4 of this device/board and the steps needed for windows 7, having to make the OS see it as a device (via Zadig). This part of the install seems to function and work totally fine so I am confused?

It is even listed with its com port

I really want to use the laptop as I have created an external disk station in an old scsi case. I want it all portable.

Any possible ideas? anyone else had any issues like this?

Tia

I still use Windows 7 x64 and refuse to update lol

Greaseweazle works fine for me. I'm using the Bluepill revision ie 1st one.

I'm not sure if you still need to but previously you had to manually update the preinstalled driver with one of that with libusb... could that be the issue?

EDIT: I managed to get Windows 10 onto the laptop! Need to do a little more testing but the greaseweazle exe now loads, as does the gui! so im confident installing this OS has fixed all of my problems

I followed the steps for Zadig for windows 7:

Windows 7 & 8: The driver must be manually installed as follows:

Download and install Zadig
Connect Greaseweazle via USB
Start Zadig
Select "List all devices" from the Options pull-down menu
Select "Greaseweazle" in the dropdown list
Select "USB Serial (CDC)" as the driver
Select "Install driver" or "Replace driver"

From now on Greaseweazle will automatically appear as a COM device (typically COM3). To test correct connection to Greaseweazle hardware:

I have done this a few times now, it seems to install, no errors get thrown up.
Until I try and use gw.exe!

I will have another look at libusb and report back.

On Windows 10 Check your Device Manager list and you have to delete a spurious device that has installed itself and blocks the greaseweasle driver, can`t remember its name something like Jungo or similar, if you delete it then plug in your greasweasle it should install the correct COM device driver, you might have to do it a couple of times.
