64 Bit Drivers for Pleo and Windows
« on: May 12, 2010, 03:46:39 PM »

Has anybody heard anything about 64 bit drivers for Windows and PLEO? All of my machines are Win7 64bit and I cannot do anything via USB since INNOVO has not made available any 64 bit drivers as yet. I would certainly like to try developing for PLEO but without the drivers I cannot even access PLEO.

Thanx,
Lou :'(

No 64-bit drivers were ever released.   Don't know if they have any plans or not.  Their plan is all software updates, etc. to be SD card only, no USB going forward, so doesn't sound promising...

Can you run one through an emulator? I know its a major pain but it may be possible...

I don't know. Can one run a 32bit emulator using a 64bit OS? Such as Winxp x32 running virtually under Win7 x64.
Not sure if this can work. Any suggestions?

Hmm according to some quick research it is possible to run a 32 bit emulator on a 64 bit system... as long as you have the software of course...

You can run a 32 bit windows XP under a 64 bit win7 by using any virtualization software like: VMware or Parallels, or even the (free) Microsoft VirtualPC

I have tried 32bit Winxp using Windows Virtual PC but it will not recognize the PLEO when it is connected.

Thanx all,

One other thing, if we can get enough people to respond to this question maybe Innovo Labs will take notice about the 64bit dilemma.

I use VMware workstation, and it recognizes USB ports (both host and guest)

I run my printer and print sessions withing a guest Win XP under Win7 64 bit host because the drivers for my printer are relatively old and only supported under XP

so, i guess running pleo usb drivers in a virtual guest should be OK, though i haven't tried it

Thanx alexlloyd54!
The problem is I don't have VMWare I only have Microsoft's Virtual PC. I really have not looked at VMWare. Is it expensive? Hard to set-up? I have been working on PC's since 1983 so I know my way around. The problem with Virtual PC is it will not even see PLEO. It sees my USB hard drives but not PLEO.

Thanx,
Lou

Dear Lou

There is a (free) version of VMware called (VMware Player), you can download it from their site at:

http://www.vmware.com/products/player/

Registration id free

or from Softpedia  (If you don't want to register  :) ) at: 

http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/VMware-Player.shtml

Give it a try, it's easy to install and setup, and the good news is that you can import your Microsft Virtual PC's virtual hard disk to it, so you don't have to install a fresh copy of windows XP.

Great informational forum, so now it's time to give something back:

USB win7 Pleo driver: Hooking my Pleo up to my Ubuntu Linux let me connect to it directly without driver through a serial terminal window. Usb info from my Linux computer identifies the usb chip as a cdc acm device, a type used in soft modems (also used in windows for ages). The CDC ACM protecol has serial and mass storage just like the options you had with the old software on xp computers that no longer works in Vista,Win7 etc.

So the question; is there a driver for CDC ACM in WIN7 ? YES!!!

On this site:
https://developer.ridgerun.com/wiki/index.php/How_to_use_USB_CDC_ACM_and_MS_composite_Linux_gadget_driver



There is this .inf file: http://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/usb/linux-cdc-acm.inf

Don't be fooled by the "Linux" in the file name. It's an generic file that specifies how windows and other OS'es should handle the USB port

So I found my Usb Pleo device in device manager and "have file" updated the driver by pointing to the .inf, which went through after the complaints about non signed driver.

I then fired up Dino-Mite and if found the correct port (com3) and didn't crash, it just works.

So here you go problem solved three hours hard work on-line, Pleo software is still current.

Thanks a lot. It helped but in windows 8.1 you have to disable the Disable Driver Signature Enforcement before you can install the driver. This is how it's done.

Go to Start - Then Command Prompt
Enter command "shutdown /r /o /f /t 00"
Click the "OK" button
System will restart to a "Choose an option" screen
Then select "Troubleshoot" from "Choose an option" screen
Then select "Advanced options" from "Troubleshoot" screen
Then select "Windows Startup Settings" from "Advanced options" screen
Click "Restart" button
System will restart to "Advanced Boot Options" screen
Select "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement"
Restart & install driver.

Does the trick work for the Ugobe?

It sounds like it should. I think Dino-mite is designed primarially for the Ugobe. Mind I am just barely hanging on the edge of understanding these computer terms here.

i turned the file into a proper inf, and it seems to be working. i tested it on the battery tool, and it showed my Pleo being constantly drowsy...considered posting the download in the downloads section? Btw, DinoMite does not seem to be working on my windows 8.1 computer.

I don't have a windows 8 machine so I can't help, but I would try redoing what you did Tort, the update might have updated a key file.

Reinstall the inf and then reinstall the Pleo programs. With Dinomite you might need to run it in compatibility mode. Also look up the dinomite fix, it may not be a bug with 8.1 but rather the old dinomite bug which just needs a quick file change to work.

Ok, so jump on Google and find a new copy of that file, then add it to your directory.

Old now, but if you want Dino-Mite on a 64bit machine you need to do the following:
install comdlg32.ocx in the \windows\SysWOW64 folder not the system32 folder, then run this command instead:

regsvr32 c:\Windows\SysWOW64\comdlg32.ocx
