We have upgraded to Windows 7 and our castle explorer cd-roms no longer work. is there a newer edition of that wonderful software?

Avanquest have told me that these games simply will not run on newer OS's - I found this out after buying a DK game, thinking I could run it in compatibility mode, but it still did not work. Bottom line, they don't care - unless you have a machine somewhere running XP, there's not much you can do as they really don't seem to care once they have your money.

My frontech e cams driver is not being instlled. i have the cd and everything. Its brand new. plx help

First connect the camera to your computer using the Usb cable and then insert the cd onto your Cd-drive and install the software when it's "atoplay". If it's not autoplay itself, open cd directory/folder and click the Setup file and follow the onscreen instructions.
In case this doesn't fix the installation, you need to run another installation method.

Connect the camera to your computer's usb port, you'll see a pop dialog box with "Found new Hardware" wizard, Click "install from a list or specific location (advanced)" by selecting the radio button, "Next", then click "include this location in the search" and the "browse", locate the cd directory and browse the driver in the cd's folder (don't just click the Cd drive, it might not detect automatically). After you find the drivers, click "Ok" and then, "Next", it'll take few minutes to complete the installation, (if you are prompted with a warning, just click "continue anyway"), when it's done, click finish. You might require to restart your system after the installation is finished.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi, you can download the driver for the HVR-1600 from HERE
(53MB FIle)

Step 1 - Extract the Installer
Download the file to a suitable location on your computer, then extract it . Windows has built in support for zip files, if you right click on the file and select 'extract all' a wizard will guide you through extracting the directory.

Step 2 - Remove the previous software version (if necessary)
If you had previously installed the WinTV-PVR-1600 in your PC, browse to the folder you just extracted to (e.g. through My Computer) and locate a file called hcwclear.exe
Run HCWCLEAR.EXE and choose the options Remove All WinTV Drivers and Applications (Total Removal) and Search All .INF Files for Conflicting Hardware.
Note: wait until the black box has disappeared of its own accord before proceeding.

Step 3 - Reboot
Shutdown and reboot your PC.
IMPORTANT! Once rebooted, please do not cancel any 'Found new hardware' wizards. Also ensure that the original driver CD is NOT in the CD drive.

Step 4 - New Driver Installation
After Windows reboots, you will see some New Hardware Found prompts. For each one, please choose the following options:
4A) On the first page, select 'No, not this time' and click Next.
4B) On the next page, select 'Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)' and click Next.
4C) On the next page you will be asked 'Please choose your search and installation options'. Select 'Search for driver in these locations' and then specify the extracted folder (the folder you extracted in step 1).
Note: Specifiy the 'Driver' subdirectory if Windows cannot find the driver file.
Note: You can also click the Browse button and browse for the directlry created in Step 1.
4D) Keep clicking Next for the rest of the steps then Finish to end the Hardware Installation Wizard
Depending on the model WinTV board, you may see several New Hardware Found wizards. Follow the same steps for each.

Step 5 - Run Setup.exe
Run Setup.exe from the extracted folder (from Step 1). You will be presented with a list of things to install, leave all the default settings and click Install.
Once the installation is complete, all drivers will be installed and you should have a WinTV2000 icon on your desktop.
