Here are the instruction for installing the QX3 (or QX3+) Microscope with Vista. You must be using a 32-BIT VERSION. The QX3 is not compatible with 64-bit versions of Vista.

Note, DO NOT use the software from the CD that came with the microscope.
DO NOT plug in the QX3 microscope until Step 4.

Before you run the programs below, right click the icon, click on "Properties", click the "Compatibility" tab, check the box next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for:", then choose in the drop-down box "Windows 98 / Windows ME". You should also check "Run as Administrator" if your account is a "Standard user".

Step 1. Download and install the QX3PLUS.EXE software from Intel:

Step 3. Download and extract the QX3 Drivers from:
http://tinyurl.com/IntelQX3driverXP or

Step 4. Now, plug in the microscope.

a. Click START - Select Devices & Printers
b. Right-click on the Intel QX3 Icon and select Properties
c. Click the Hardware tab - click Properties
d. Click Update Driver - select "Browse my computer for driver software"

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.
