Mindstorms RCX and Windows 7?

9 posts in this topic

I have a RIS 2.0 set with a USB IR tower and I am running Windows 7 x64, is there a way I can use my RCX with this setup?

i also had no trouble running RIS 2.0 under win7 using USB IR Tower. If i remember correctly, there was some sort of a patch for the IR tower driver.

If you have any trouble, let me know. I'll do what i can to help you :)

Ahh, outdated software and current CPU... I think you can run it as long as you get that patch that leg60head was talking about

Sorry, i got a little mixed up.

There's a patch for the RIX 2.0 and an USB IR Tower driver

Here's what the readme of the USB tower driver says:

"Only install this if you have Hyper-threading capabilities of your processor.

Donґt know if you do or donґt ?

Just run the main program without this patch, if it freezes install it :)"

The patch is said to be for win XP, but i guess it works for win7 ( works fine for me at least )

Is it okay if i attach in this topic ?

What I really need is a working 64-bit driver for the IR tower, none of the suggestions in this post seem to indicate one exists.

I am running win7 Ultimate x86.

I just installed RIS2, then installed USB infrared tower xp-patch, and voila - downloaded firmware. Everything works as expected.
