Problems installing Wireless USB Adapter

  jolea 09:59 09 Aug 2009

Hi I've just bought a EDUP Wireless USB Adapater which sai on system requirements is PC compatible and works with all Microsoft Windows versions. But when I i tried to intall the software CD (tiny little CD) in my CD Rom it said it would auto run immediately but it failed with this message.

"E:\AutoRunSource\(then a lot of weird letters and symbols and squiggles which I can't find to type!). The system cannot find the file specified (then more weird symbols squiggles).

Is it a problem with the product or it not being compatible or something I fix on my computer?

Thanks for your help.

Hi thanks for responding. Yes I did buy it from a big shop on ebay! My system is Windows XP.

Thanks for the link, do you have to pay to update the driver then? Might be cheaper to just go wireless in the first place! Thanks

Try this driver click here

It will take you through some hoops but you should get it for free.

Thanks for that link, downloaded it fine but unfortunately didn't help my problem. Re booted system and tried disk again and came up with same message. Thanks for your help anyway.

Thanks for your help fruit Bat but that link didn't work.

Also a few people have said they installed it by using setup.exe on the cd and not by attempting to install just through drivers but I have no ida how to do that either! If thre cd won't even load how can you do that? Help!

Try clicking on My Computer & then your cd icon & then on setup.exe.
This is how I got round cd's which didn't auto run

Thanks jaraba, thats what I did originally but when I click on the cd icon nothing resembling setup.exe appears. Tried looking everywhere but can't seem to find or see that command listed anywhere.
