4. INSTALLING SOFTWARE COMPONENTS
To install, extract the zip file to a directory of your choice on a system with
an on-board Winbond WPC876xL device.
You must have administrator privileges to install/update the driver.
1. Boot Windows or select "scan for hardware changes" in the Device Manager.
2. The window "Found New Hardware" appears
-> Close this window.
3. Execute CIRPort_Installer.msi
But when I scan for hardware changes, it finds nothing, as well as when I click on cirport installer it says that it cannot be started in safe mode. (Curses)
