    Installing USB Key drivers

    One day I had a problem when I tried to install the drivers on a 32bit Windows 7 version, and ended up with this message: - "A service installation section in this INF is invalid". I gave up and installed a 64bit Windows OS version with which I had no problems installing the Sparkey drivers, but I took a different approach of how I installed the drivers with what I did when I had the 32bit Windows OS.

    First I installed the drivers using a .exe installation of the drivers from here. Choose the one that suits you.

    I think using the .exe file version of the drivers will force the drivers to be installed in the Windows directory.

    Then if the dongle is still not recognised open the Control Panel, locate the Sparkey dongle in Device Manager, and update the driver by pointing to the file downloaded from here.

    But, before you do anything, I would suggest you download USBDeview from here and delete / uninstall the offending USB related to the dongle. You can see which one it is by removing and inserting the dongle in the computer.

    PLEASE NOTE: - This is not a definite solution for Sparkey driver installation problems.

    Hopes this helps.
