    I have the same problem. My QX3 scope doesn't work on Vista. Does anybody know of any drivers for vista?
    Please email me.

  • King Zagros Mar 11, 2008

    I of course ran the disc supplied and it didn't work. I've done numerous searches to no avail.



    Doesn't Intel and windows realise they are convincing us their products have no longevity and will end up as functional but unusable junk just adding to the pollution of our planet? come on Microsoft & Intel you guys are supposed to be the Big League... act like it! Provide drivers to make the QX3 work with Vista

    Same problem, need a driver for QX3 microscope on Windows Vista

  • ellistai Feb 05, 2009

    With bogey222's 5th step, I managed to get one step closer. Program can now be run, but I got this "Your computer can't find all the necessary software components. Please reinstall QX3 software. (57)".

    Now it's 57 instead of 85. Any further hint?

Solution #3 by MMEHALL needs a 5th step ... Before you run the program, right click it, click on "Properties", click the "Compatability" tab, check the box next to "Run this program in compatability mode for:", then choose in the drop-down box "Windows 98 / Windows ME".

    The Solution by MMEHALL isn't #3. So don't look for Solution #3 ... look for MMEHALL and add this step to it to get the QX3 to run in Vista.

I had the same problem ("Your computer can't find all the necessary software components. Please reinstall QX3 software. (57)") but later noticed that there was a hidden window asking to reinstall the QCODINSTL codec with the proper compatibility mode set. After that the QX3 software worked (without the QCODINSTL codec installed, the application came up but didn't show any image).
I would suggest on right-clicking the qcodinstl.exe file and setting Windows 98/Windows ME compatibility before running this installer.

MMEHALL,

I tried your solution. I followed it step by step but the microscope comes on and I use it briefly. Now, if I close the program, I relaunch the progam, I just get any small clock and that is it.

Anyone have a further solution?

Maybe a step closer...

http://hyperslug.s3.amazonaws.com/IntelQX3driverXP.zip

Extract files to a folder.
When you plug in the USB cord, I tell it to look in that folder for the drivers and it should install.
You should already have installed both QX3plus.exe (and qcodinstl.exe if you needed it).

On Windows Server 2008, the program looks like it's getting started but the clock just spins so it looks like its hung up.

Let me know if you guys get further with Vista. And for those using Vista, always right-click -> "run as admin" to avoid privilege elevation issues or shut off UAC entirely. BTW, those drivers were extracted from QX3plus.exe.

My QX3 worked wonderfully on my XP system, but I can't load the drivers/installation files on a Vista system.


Sorry, Intel stopped making these years ago. They DID post updated drivers, but long before Vista arrived. Go to the Intel web site, your only other hope is to find a blog of Intel QX3 users, maybe some gearhead updated the driver pro bono.
