Currently, we are upgrading our conference room to a Windows 8 pro 64 bit laptop from Windows 7 and need to get the projector to work on the new laptop. I found and installed windows 8 drivers for the wireless transmitter, on the new laptop but cant get the projector to work. I am beginning to believe that even though windows 8 drivers exist for the wireless transmitter I am using to send the signals to the projector, that it is not supported for some reason. However, since I dont have much experience with projectors, I'm giving experts-exchange a try.
Make and model of transmitter - iogear HS6618A 1080p computer to HD display
Site I went to for installing the Windows 8 driver. - http://www.iogear.com/support/dm/driver/GUWAVKIT4B#display
I went through the install steps laid out in this pdf manual found on the site so I feel like I am doing it right and maybe this adapter is just not supported. - http://www.iogear.com/support/manual/GUWAVKIT4B_UM.pdf
Side note: When attaching the transmitter itself to a usb port, I see it show up in device manager fine. However, there is something else that was already there for usb with a "!". This thing I am talking about though is - unknown USB device (device descriptor Request Failed) - Its a standard USB controller - Code 43
Any ideas would be much appreciated.
