Step 5. Finally, double-click the "Intel Play QX3 Microscope" icon on the desktop and the program should run.
If you get a message that the microscope is not plugged in, quit and restart the program.
If the program hangs or crashes, reboot the computer, then restart the program.

SOURCE: need qx3 drivers for windows 7 64 bit

The Intel QX3 is not compatible with 64 bit operating systems. It will not work. Sorry.

You can either reinstall Windows 7 as a 32-bit version or purchase a QX5 model which is compatible with Windows 7 64-bit.
