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.

Qx3 microscope driver for Windows 8


Here are the instruction for installing the QX3 (or QX3+) Microscope with Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. You must be using a 32-BIT VERSION of Windows 8 or 8.1.
Note: The QX3 is not compatible with 64-bit versions of XP, Vista, Windows 7 or 8.

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. Download and run the QX3plus.exe program from:
http://tinyurl.com/QX3-Win8-1
After the program installs, uncheck "I would like to view the README file." Click "Finish".

Step 2. Download and run the qcodinstl.exe program from:
http://tinyurl.com/QX3-Win8-1
If asked about NTVDM, click "Install this feature" then click "Close"

Step 3. Download IntelQX3driverXP.zip and save (do not open) the file from:
http://tinyurl.com/QX3-Win8-1

Step 4. Now, plug in the microscope. The driver should load silently.
If the "Found New Hardware" wizard appears and you get a message saying that the driver installation was not successful. Click the Close box. You need to install the driver manually by following these steps:
a. Right-click START - Select "Device Manager"
b. Right-click on the Intel QX3 Icon and select "Update Driver Software", select "Browse my computer for driver software"
e. Browse to the Download folder with the extracted QX3 drivers from Step 3. above. The driver software should install successfully.

IMPORTANT: Before you run the QX3Plus program for the first time, right click the "Intel Play QX3 Microscope" icon on the desktop, click "Properties", click the "Compatibility" tab, check the box next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for:", then choose "Windows 98 / Windows ME" in the drop-down box. You should also check "Run as Administrator" if your account is a "Standard user". Click "Apply" then "Ok".
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.

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.

Want to use Windows XP operating system, rather than windows 3.1 it is designed for. Is there a driver available?


You should be looking for a windows 3.1 emulator, to run 3.1 inside XP, and not for a driver. It's highly unlikely you'll find a driver unless you have a programmer custom make one for you.
