Need help with Automated installer.

Post by scannergoderich » Tue May 06, 2014 12:28 am

Hello every one,

I am the maker of the new installer.
After posting a new installer for RTL SDR a while back, i am stuck with the following windows xp portion of the installer.
I will also post just a driver installer only version for people that are only interested in that for their projects. (once the issue is resolved)

Please read,

-Windows 7 & Windows 8 are working 100%
-I need to fix Windows XP

I had a windows xp computer from a friend to use, therefor i was able to check the xp module of the installer.

I need your help to fix it!!!
I have fixed an issue where it asks for autodriver.bat so it will get included once i can fix the following problem

Part of the installer is made using the Microsoft Development kit.

Here is where i get stuck, i use DPINST.EXE to install the drivers to the appropriate location.

However the following happens, even without my program when i am just testing the program DPINST.EXE on its own i get this under windows XP:

DPINST.EXE is not a valid win32 application.

So i am stuck here.

in my observation:
-DPINST.EXE is indeed a WIN32 bit application
-The file isn't corrupt
-Microsoft tells me: it is supposed to work from WIN XP all the way up to WIN 8
-WIN XP support no longer available "i could ask for paid help but ...no thanks i am doing this as a hobby and try to help make other people life easier :lol: "

If any on here could help out that would be greatly appreciated

"So busy with family life that i will need some help ;) "

All the best,
Scanner goderich

Many Thanks for putting this installer package together. I'm new to SDR. This made life a lot easier than the load the drivers, load the software, etc. method for a not so technically oriented "newbie" like me. The windows 8 (8.1)version works great!. I have an old XP laptop that I want to use also so I'm anxious to give that a go with your driver fixes. I don't seem to be able to update the sd#daily build version by unzipping and extracting the files into the sdr folder. It still opens with ver.1.0.0.1135. Obviously I am doing something wrong? Anyway thanks again. This is cool stuff.
