On windows you cant have two sets of drivers for the same device. So you can have either the libprs500 drivers or the connect drivers. Uninstalling the drivers of either package will prevent it from communicating with the device, but will not prevent its other features from working.
EeeehI don't know about the coding...If it were a case of copy/paste and fiddle about a bit with a few things maybe. Otherwise it might be a bit of a steep learning curve for me. But I might look into it. Where would I get the libprs500 development environment btw?
Also I am having problems with slow startup speeds with Connect software and might start using libprs500 instead. What other formats does it convert?
Thanks a lot for the great program!
