We have just produced signed drivers for the XTAG-2 which should resolve the issues with Windows 7 refusing to install them. They are available here:

http://www.xmos.com/xtag-2

The driver is the same as the one in 9.9.2 apart from the addition of the signature and will be included in future releases.

To install:
  • Right click on Computer.
    Select Manage from the pop-up menu
    Go to Device Manager.
    Open LibUSB-Win32 Devices (with an XTAG-2 attached)
    Right click on XMOS XTAG-2 and "Update Driver Software..."
    Click "Browse my computer for driver software"
    Specify the location you have downloaded the signed drivers and click Next
    A Windows Security dialogue box appears, click Install.
    When installed click Close

Great :!:

What about 64-bit Win 7 ?

The driver should work on 32 and 64bit Windows OSes.

Please let us know if you have any problems with it.

Great, will try it out on my 64-bit desktop at work.
I'm using 32-bit on all laptops since they do not have so much RAM.

... and Vista gives me gray hair :twisted:

It worked fine for me under 64bits Win7 as well. :D

But since I earlier tried to install the (incorrect) driver in the IDE catalouge by making overrule on Win 7, I had to remove the old driver completly first.
Othervise Windows told me that a driver was already installed and that it didn't needed to be updated.
