Do either of you have Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable installed?

If you don't, here's the link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downloa ... px?id=3387
Install that, then re-run the autorun (may need to reboot after C++ 2005 install).

If you already have that installed I'll have to dig deeper.

Ill check it out kartmaster, again thanks for all your help!

Edit: well I tried installing C++ 2005 but it looks like I have C++ 2010 and it doesn't want to install an older version.

Okay, a new option to try.

Download the 32bit Setup launcher here: http://toastytech.com/files/Is5Launcher.zip

REPLACE the Setup.exe file in the Dex_002_902 folder with the one you just downloaded.

After you've overwritten the old Setup.exe, Try installing the program by running the new Setup.exe.

So. I ended up getting really frustrated trying to get this to work on Windows 7 so I thought the simplest solution would be to just buy a Win98 laptop! Or so I thought....





For some reason DexDrive is being weird saying it can't recognize my memory paks. I tried it with two different ones to no avail. I'm suspicous that it's the program/hardware at fault and not the memory packs.



Just to show that my memory packs aren't defective....Perfect Dark is showing my memories/blocks are indeed fine.



Any ideas!? This whole memory management thing with N64 is driving me bonkers. :blasphemybat:

Man, I was hoping to do the same thing and pick up and old PC to use my dex drive. It's kinda funny how hard it is to get this piece of tech working that's 10 plus years old. Someday Rocky we will be able to use these Dex Drives!
