    Re: Promethean Activdriver 4 now on web

    Ok just tried to allocate the new driver to a machine that has the old one installed and it failed so yes you do need to remove the old one first.
    Thanks Plex for this, saved me a lot of time now,

    There are several manual things you need to uninstall driver 2/3

    You can do it manually on the machine or.

    1. Remove the activdrvservice service from services
    2. Remove the contents of C:\program files\activ software\activdriver\
    3. Remove the key
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run \Activcontrol
    and
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run \Activfilter
    4. Remove Activdrv.sys and Activdrv_usb.sys from
    c:\windows\system32\drivers.

    I think you will have to do the above without the board attached and do a reboot to get rid of the service.

    Thats the driver, Im not sure about the installshield stuff as that gets everywhere.

    I think i'll give this a miss, unless someone can come up with a script that automates this lot above. Looks like they'll have to wait tiill we recall tehe laptops back in for a updated image. (which i guess will be for Vista anyway)

    I take it the driver is compatible with Vista?

    No idea, will try it tomorrow though I hope so as if its not, and not certified for Vista Windows probably won't let it start at startup and need a manual start, or windows modifying to let it start.

    There are some changes that are needed to make it run on vista, I will check if we can let the beta out for testing.

    Re: Promethean Activdriver 4 now on web

    ok I used this to remove 3.03 driver, you can find the product key from the registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ACTIV Software\ACTIVdriver\ProductCode

    http://support.installshield.com/kb/...icleid=Q106685

    IDriver.exe /M{Your Product GUID} /uninst

    They appear to have used v9 for the 3.03 driver

    then after running this in a script on out laptops force a reboot and the AD assigned MSi installed perfectly.

    Nofilt.exe Complains about the lack of VB40032.dll
    Presumably that's just a Visual Basic runtime component - any idea where i can get it please?
