Unable to Install Drivers for Hardware

Postby jotruebl » 5. Dec 2017, 22:00


I am trying to use a spectrometer through VirtualBox on Windows XP. The spectrometer loads the drivers just fine when it's on the host computer. However, whenever I try to run it on the VM it fails. I have the extension pack and the VM is able to detect the hardware in the USB port. But the driver wizard is unable to find the driver.

If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
