    I've become stuck in an inexplicable blind-alley trying to RE-install kX under Win8, and would much welcome help in solving it.

    Funny thing is that I originally succeeded (by following IcemanSR's direction) in installing it without any real problems, but now all my repeated attempts to do it again fail each time.

    As before I'm trying to install 3551a (though in desperation I've also tried with 3550 but it made no difference). I have the 3551 driver installed (listed in Device Manager, shown as working correctly), but the program itself fails to install after repeated attempts. Attempts just abort with the error message: "Setup error - Error selecting device".

    I have registered both of Iceman's registry fixes, and have also set the program to be run in Compatibility mode for Win7, all of which repeats the procedure I followed successfully before.

    Can anyone suggest what else I might try? It's driving me nuts!

    Try the card in another slot if you have one.
