Since MacroWorks II claims to work with Windows x64, I figure there must be a way to program my X-keys on my OS. Only, I can't seem to find the drivers needed to successfully switch to the Programming Mode, nor does the tray icon let me start the MacroWorks II Program.
What drivers do I need and where do I find/get them?
This is what I did:
I installed MacroWorks II and ran it; the tray icon wont let me click on the "X-keys MacroWorks II" on its context menu - only on "Exit".
Switching to Programming Mode on the X-keys pad triggers the windows´ "New Hardware Found" wizard and I can't seem to find the drivers anywhere (was hoping that installing MacroWorks II would install them too, since that is all the help and guidance the official page offers).
Unfortunately programming in Memory Resident Mode on Vista will not be supported,
however if you program your unit on an XP or 2000 machine first you will be
able to “run” your unit on Vista.
Because we are unable to program in Memory Resident Mode in a Vista environment
we are currently moving to new firmware called MWII which supports a mode
called Boot Mode. Boot Mode is very similar to Memory Resident Mode in that
when operating in Boot Mode all of your X-keys device's macros are stored in
the X-keys device's internal memory. Our MacroWorks II software is required to
write programming to an X-keys device operating in Boot Mode or to read
programming from that device.
I apologize for the inconvenience this will cause. If you have any questions
for me please email me at: Roccol@piengineering.com
Download the Macro Recorder application from PI engineering http://www.piengineering.com/download/Macro_Recorder.zip and run it, you will be able to install the driver and program the X-keys unit using the Macro Recorder application. Wayne

The only thing you can try is the "Compatibility Mode" option in windows 7. Right click the executable for your game and choose properties. Go to compatibility tab and choose a lower version of Operating System (e.g. Windows XP SP2) that supports your game. Save the changes you made by clicking on OK and try the game again. If this won't work, there is no other way but to use another computer with a compatible OS or downgrade your OS to a lower version that works.
You might also want to check your game manufacturer website for any update or patch that you can use to make the game compatible for Windows 7.
Hope this helps.

Have you tried to copy the compressed folder from the disc to your computer desktop and open it there? Give that a try and see if it works.... I have had this happen to a couple customers at work and I just copied the folder from the disc onto the desktop, opened it there and re-installed it. Or you could also try a repair install of the OS but it does carry the possibility of losing your data and programs.
Hi niket_shah, sorry but you're board Asus M2N-MX, does support Win XP SP2.
Chances are that while installing windows updates one or more updates failed. People like myself know from repairing PC's which updates need to be installed first. If you're Win XP SP2 did not or would not install than either the Win CD is not a valid Microsoft Win XP SP2 CD or (You have a copy) & there is something wrong with the CD. After a fresh (New install) of Win XP with SP2 there is more than 90+ updates for SP2 which must be downloaded through windows update program. Or you're windows will not function properly.
Just to show you what versions of windows the M2N-MX board does support. Click the link listed below. Once the link loads click the + sign next to Audio. Scroll down the page an notice the different Window version listed for you're board. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=M2N-MX&SLanguage=en-us
To recap this issue. The problem is either the WinCD or possibly you're hard drive. Make sure you allow windows to perform a full format before installing window. (Not a quick format).
