Instruction for installing the QX3 or QX3+ Microscope with 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.
Step 1. Install the QX3PLUS.EXE software downloaded from Intel:

Step 3. Download and extract the QX3 Drivers from:
Step 4. Now, plug in the microscope.
When the "Found New Hardware" wizard appears, select "Locate and install driver software (Recommended)", a message "Installing device driver software" will appear. If you click on "details", you will see "Searching Windows Update", after a while you will be able to select "I don't have a disc. Show me other options" and browse to the folder with the extracted QX3 drivers from Step 3. above. The hardware should install successfully.

Try a different computer and install the QX3Plus application (for Win 2K-XP). If it works okay, then completely remove (uninstall) it from your Dell 4600 and clean up the registry of unusable strings (try Advanced Registry Optimizer, its a free download). Then do a clean QX3Plus install BEFORE you plug in the USB cable. If the QX3 did not work on a different computer, the QX3 is faulty and maybe you should look at the QX5 as a replacement. The QX3 was discontinued at around the turn of the Century. However, if you are only missing the SPLAT; try locating the green button at the lower left corner of the image screen, it produces drop-down dialog boxes to splat screens. Good Luck!

SOURCE: 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
