Thanks you for the reference. I tried it too with unstable results - the driver was re-installed to the "updated" version so often than it made the experience unbearable. I finally had it and returned the Win-8 machine, swapped it with a win-7 Pro system where none of that nonsense exists - and where the OS behaves like an OS as opposed to a GameBoy on steroids...

But the effort wasn't in vain, we've learned how to get things working against the sinister ploys of the OS: by the time I got rid of it I had succeeded in getting all work: MicroBurn, CL transfer, and MLDL2k - but life is too short to spend it fighting the Windoze beast!

Cheers,
