SharePort Enable router (DIR-655)
« on: December 05, 2009, 05:39:05 PM »

Hello

I'm using SharePort 1.15. I have 2 systems. a windows 7 and a VM running XP sp3.

The windows 7 works great but the XP system can see the router
Nothing happens when I click enable , it keep being disable.

I tried to reinstall it with no luck, checked with ProcessMonitor see if I get any error msg but non.
Check windows event logs nothing.

Have anyone seen this problem before ?

I have made it work on a VM running XP with sp3 but I needed to reinstall.

TIA

Daniel

As I remember correctly the VM does not allow using the USB device driver for Shareport. The normal VM USB driver inside a VM is already a virtual one, and just does not mix with another virtual USB device driver. So it's a VM limitiation. You can search on the forum, there have been some posts about this before.

Perhaps it will only work when you don't load the standard virtual USB support (in the VM) and install Shareport so it can use USB solo.

Hello, I got it to work :)  I did the other way I installed a USB controller.
I'm running a ESXi server, the USB controller isn't standard when you create a new VM.

Added it and booted up  the system again and now it's working.  If you like to add this as to some FAQ
you are welcome to do.
