Sorry, the QX3 does not work on 64-bit systems. The drivers are not compatible. There are instructions available for using the QX3 with Windows 98, Me, XP and 32-bit versions of Vista, Windows 7 and even Windows 8.

Use with windows vista

Works for me Win 7 64 bit - same basic OS as Vista. May need to run in compatibility mode, I can't remember. That's a windows Vista/7 feature that allows you to run old 32 bit Win XP programs (right click I think)

QX5 Problem with Windows Vista


Do not plug the QX5 in until the software is installed.

I got mine to work on Vista 32bit. Insert the cd, cancel autorun, view files on the cd. locate setup.exe, right-click on the setup and go to properties; then compatibility; then put a check in "run this program in compatibility mode for windows xp" AND put a check mark in "run this program as an administrator; the click Apply and click OK.

Right-click on the setup.exe again, this time choose, Run as Administrator.

Install away from the default. My recommendation is c:\users\(your user name\digitalblue.

Plug in the QX5, then go to Start, Programs, Digital Blue, click on QX5
