See video on how to... and read these instruction

ftp://ftp.martin.dk/Controller/Lightjockey/LJ_on_Windows_Vista.mov


Vista driver for the Martin Universal USB/DMX Interface. (Vista 32bit edition)



Click the link below and download the MartinUniversalUSBDMX.exe file:

ftp://ftp.martin.com/Controller/Universal%20USB%20DMX%20INterface/beta/MartinUniversalUSBDMX.exe

Once you have downloaded the file, double click it to run it.

IMPORTANT - Do not have any Interfaces connected to the computer while installing the driver.

After installation of the driver reconnect the Interface and start your application.

IMPORTANT - If you use the Martin LightJockey you have to set the compatibility mode XP/SP2.
This has to be done before starting the Martin LightJockey software.


To set the Compatibility mode in Vista, right-click on the Lightjockey icon on the desktop and click properties






For the Offline Visulizer missing DLL

Look for d3drm.dll on this FTP site
ftp://ftp.martin.dk/Controller/Lightjockey/

and place this in the Lightjockey folder
usually
C:\Program Files\Martin Professional\Martin LightJockey

hey im still having issues with the vista OS. I did as you said, downloaded and ran the driver install but my computer still says unsupported OS when i attempt to detect DMX hardware in the LJ setup menu.
Have I done something wrong or am I missing something all together here?

cheers guys,

Have you set lightjockey to run in windows XP compatibility mode? If not right click on the Lightjockey icon and clcik the compatibility tab, then select to run in Windows XP (service pack 2). This should solve your problem

As far as I can remember no... you can't mix different type of hardware as only one driver can be loaded at once.

Will there be driver-support for the 64-bit version of Windows Vista?
I've tried to install your most recent driver (rev. B V8110) on the 64-bit version of Windows Vista Ultimate and in the end of installing the driver, it says it can't start a certain service. Because of this I've downgraded to the 32-bit version of Vista but I would like to go back to 64-bit as soon as possible.

Kind regards,
Bart

Question, why do you need a 64bit version to run Lightjockey? there's no advantage, probably just a slowdown actually as you are not running the software in native mode.

I'm using my LightJockey-laptop with a bunch of other software packages of which I own a license for the 64-bit edition. It's quite a problem to run a 64-bit application on 32-bit Vista, but running a 32-bit application on the 64-bit platform is no problem. Hence I've got Vista DVD's for both 64-bit and 32-bit versions so I can use my key for both versions by only exchanging DVD's.

Okay, that's obviously the way this forum works.

Hope to hear from 64-bit support soon, as that proves that it's worth investing in products from Martin (although I still believe in Martin products if that's not the case). :)

I don't know much about 64bit and written code for it... but I don't think it is that simple... specially in software originally written in 32bit...
I see many PC hardware that don't have 64 bit drivers, like most webcam,, you have to buy a new one as they don't want to make drivers for 64bit plateform.
But maybe the New universal box has some chance to get it as the this is the latest hardware version and is use on many software at Martin.
Let see what they will do...

Ho ok... so the latest driver does work in X64?

Good to know...
Any tip on how to install it?
I don't have a Vista OS to test it.

-EDIT-
Unfortunately it didn't work as expected. LightJockey's USBDMX-dll doesn't recognize the device although it is correctly initialized. It seems not much work to make LightJockey completeley 64-bit compatible so I'm hoping for an update soon...

Hello everyone,

I see many people talk about the VISTA OS, however, it is not mentioned if the different versions of VISTA (home basic, home premium, business, ultimate, etc) make a difference when installing LightJockey.
A customer has sent us a VISTA HOME BASIC 32bit PC to install LJ, but it just won't work, even after following all directions described above.

Any idea wy this happens?

The Vista core remains the same across all versions except maybe between 32 & 64 bit versions, so if it runs on Premium 32, it should run on basic home 32, Business, and Ultimate.

Hello.

After spending about 3 hours trying to get my LightJockey USB II controller working with 32bit Windows Vista Business Edition, I managed to get it working by doing the following...

1. Download the 8.1.1 driver (listed at the first post)
2. Run the driver, let it do it's thing.
3. Plug in the USB LJ II
4. Try to let it run and automatically install. If it is unsuccessful (like it was with my setup), do the following.
5. Download and install the latest Light Jockey software.
6. Open up Device Manager, Right Click on the "Unknown Device", and click on "Update Driver."
7. Browse to C:\Program Files\Martin Professional\Martin LightJockey\Hardware Drivers\*the appropriate driver* (mine was USB2)
8. Let Vista automatically insatll from that.

Here's what happened for me. It automatically installed...then, windows "Found New Hardware" again, and automatically installed the 8.1.1 driver we had ran earlier.

9. Right Click on LightJockey, and Go to Compatibility. Select the "Windows XP SP2" Compatibility Mode.

10. When LightJockey opens, ignore the hardware not found error. Then, go to setup, hardware, and redetect.


This worked for me. Kinda strange, but it worked. LJ works great now.

Just wanted to share,

Matt
