SEMA Posted March 22, 2015 Share Posted March 22, 2015 So if you try to install CUE on Windows XP x64 you get message about not having the latest service pack. Apparently whoever made the install MSI file isn't aware that XP x64 only has 2 SP's. Being technically minded, rather stubborn, and completely unable to tolerate the poor user interfaces of the newer Windows versions i set about trying to get it to work anyway. And I succeeded. Here's how: 1. Grab the CUE MSI from the website. Find a program to extract the files from it. You'll get a CorsairHID.exe, a pile of DLL's and some directories, including a "Win" and a "driver" directory. 2. The "Win" directory contains 3 DLL's that'll have to be moved to your Windows directory or placed together with CorsairHID.exe. 3. The "driver" directory contains driver files that seem to enable the macro playback and key remapping functions. Use "Add Hardware" from the control panel to add CorsairVBusDriver.inf. Then another device will show up and you need CorsairVHidDriver.inf for that one. 4. You should now be able to start up CUE by running CorsairHID.exe. You might want to move the directory it's located in to some permanent location, like "Program Files (x86)". As far as i can tell everything everything works except for the firmware upgrade. Edit 2015-03-31: NOTE: XP x64 ONLY!!! Apparently CorsairHID.exe uses the Vista and onward GetThreadID() function which is actually available anyway on XP x64, but NOT on XP x86 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
