DSI PRO, hair pulling exercize

Hey guys. Im trying to get a DSI pro running on a laptop. The lappy is running windows 7 (32 bit).
The DSI starts up fine but then crashes the computer. Have tried re installing 3 times with the same result.
Is there something im missing?

Cheers

Have you tried setting compatability modes to XP or similar?
I've never used the DSI Pro, but I know that can help with some older software.

You could try running it in a sandbox using sandboxie.

Are you talking about meades software, or does it crash in other apps like phd ect?

Did you download the latest driver release from meade?

Is it a BSOD crash?

Do you have any other usb devices plugged in at the same time and have you tryed another usb cable and usb port?

please read the instructions and download the latest release here also
