Greetings from Saipan. This is my first post. I'm one of the engineers doing the test DRM broadcasts from KFBS.

I have the Digital World Traveller and this has been working well with XP. However, I had to purchase a new notebook and unfortunately it has Vista as its OS. I am having trouble with the installation of the DWT. Does anyone have some advice for me? I haven't been able to find a driver for Vista.
Help!

Hi Owen,
I had the same problem and this was one of the reasons for me to downgrade from Vista to XP.

Hi Simone!
That's not what I want to hear! But, I did ask!

That was my solution too, though I'd made things even worse for myself
by trying to use 64 bit Vista :rolleyes:

Cheers, Chris

Thanks, Chris,

I nearly ended up with the 64 bit system, too, but glad I didn't, for a number of other reasons!

Understood, but why don't you try some other receiver which doesn't need a specific SW to work with. There are some in the market...

The reason is that we already have the DWT, and at this time, don't have the money to buy something else!

Why not install a dual boot system?
Something like
C:\WinXP
D:\Vista

Yes, a very good option !

Certainly worth considering!:)

Hi all,

Sorry for not replying earlier with a progress report. I finally got myself organized and now have a virtual machine running in Vista, with XP. After some work, I can now use the Digital World Traveller!
