    Thanks for the link Tim. That version of the I.R.I.S. software installed and runs OK but fails to download data from the computer. I then attempted to apply the patch that Zak originally linked to but the National Instruments installer from that link is giving me computability error messages now.

    I give up. I'm going to bed.

    Hi Nathan....

    ...sorry, my english isn´t good, but now, after 36-hours i have "the" solution:

    - Go to Windows-Hardware-Manager
    - open Silicon Labs CP201X USB to UART-Bridge
    - then open "access control"
    - change Flow-control to "Hardware"
    - the open the "Extendend (enhanced) Managements"
    choose COM-Port 2,3 or 4 (Test all these COM´s)
    ...this was is.

    But you need to choose the same COM-Port in your Mares-Iris-Software!
    ...my COM-Port is the Port number 3 (Win-Vista-64).

    ....and it works fine!

    You could dual boot or run a 32bit OS in a virtual machine. I can talk you through the basics of either if you are interested in one of those possibilities.

    If theres a fix for it, running dualboot or vm is just overkill (and waste of space) tho..

    I was able to install my I.R.I.S software by following the path that Ronbeau cites.
    Disable UAC, etc. Also there is an I.R.I.S. 2.30 Vista specific driver.
    I had the same problem on Vista Home Premium 32 bit.

    I have tried the above steps and am still unable toget I.R.I.S to load on my Vista Home edition - anyone have any other suggestions - this is so frustrating - Ugg :shakehead:
