Solution to Slim Loader driver refusing to install
« on: July 14, 2006, 02:11:40 PM »
I had the same problem as many people here: "Windows cannot find the software for your device". (As I'm Spanish, I don't know the exact message in English).

I edited the XUSBWindow.inf adding the line in bold:

;
[Version]
; Copyright (c) 2004-2005 X-DRIVER SEMICONDUCTOR
Signature="$CHICAGO$"
Class=USB
ClassGUID={36FC9E60-C465-11CF-8056-444553540000}
provider=%X_DRIVER%
LayoutFile=layout.inf


This way the driver installs under the USB Controllers node in the Device Manager tree. Perhaps a more accurate class should be chosen.

I have not tested the software yet.

Hope this helps.

Im not sure how that would help detecting the device, once windows detects it, it installs to that class anyway... please let me know if it does solve you issue though.

Yes, that solved my problem.

It seems like Windows expects to find that line while it's parsing the file. I had a look into several oem*.inf in my Windows\Inf folder, and each and every of them with info about a USB device include it.

Altough this hypothesis has the flaw that the original file worked for other people.

I was installing the driver for Slim Loader III on a fully patched Windows XP SP2.

A menudo te va a dar problemas el driver, pero no es el driver si no windows. En mi caso, cada vez que utilizo el NEO MAX al insertar el slim loader 3, siempre me reconoze hardware nuevo, sin embargo, no se instala automaticamente, aun asi ya le halla instalado los drivers anteriormente. Asi que por cada vez que requiero utilizar el slim loader 3, tengo que reinstalarle los drivers de manera manual especificando la ruta y el archivo desde la carpeta y de esta manera instalarlos, de otra forma cuando le doy buscar automaticamente, se tarde mucho tiempo y por si fuera poco despues de esa larga espera, marca que no encontro hardware compatible.
Tengo bastante tiempo utilizando esto y batallando con esto de los drivers, cualquier otra duda, te puedo ayudar...

I know this is older than hell, but thank you so much for posting this.

It took me 3 hours to get the driver to load, and the only way it would work is by following your .inf edit.  Just bumping for anyone else that have problems with Windows not auto installing the drivers.
