I am an XP 64 user trying to get the VA11A drivers to work.  Tried the vista trick of editing CA506AV.inf but—of course—to no avail.  I've done a fair amount of searching for a work around.  Anyone have any tips? Thanks.  -S.

  It worked for me!!!!  I am running Vista Home (32) with AHP.  I read every thread on my search and found this thread and read all the post.  I ignore the 64 bit steps and followed the steps posted.  I disabled the audio driver that was erroring.  Also, when I fired up AHP I got the "can't find the USB VA11a ..." message and just clicked ok.  I went into Iwitness and my camera was giving a picture.
   So, if you think it doesn't work, then re read and don't do anything until you read them all on this thread.  Thanks to those that provided the nice instructions/steps.

Ok, it is now February of 2008, and STILL there is no Vista drivers for the VA11A USB Video Adapter from X10 !!!  Is that correct?  I have not tried the work around yet that the users have come up with, but I will.

Does anyone have any update??

Thanks all.....

Trol - do you have any external USB Hard drives connected?  (and/or what external USB devices do you have?)

When I make the changes and try to save them in the CA506AV.inf I get a message that Cannot create the file, make sure path and file are correct.........................any suggestions?
I had the same problem.  I saved it to a different folder, moved the original file and  then moved the new file to replace the original.  Clumsy but effective!

I have tried every possible variation of this method and still ALWAYS get the error "The Device Cannot Start (Code 10)" in device manager.
Any further suggestions/insights?

Although some folks have it working, for most of us the VA11A does not work with Vista.  You have choices - run a virtual instance of XP, or spend  a couple of bucks on an old XP-capable machine.

However, if you're going to run everything (AHP, 4-modules, the CM15A and the VA11A) make sure you get enough horsepower.  As with "Everything X10" logic does NOT rule - Murphy does.

For instance:  I bought an obsolete Dell Latitude laptop for $100, and installed only XP (SP2), and AHP.  It had only one USB port.  I tried a powered USB HUB.  I tried a powered dual-port USB PCMCIA card.  On idle, the VA11A ate up 80% of the USB bandwidth (internal system report, not just an estimate).  Some signals from the CM15A were not getting to AHP.  Whether or not it SHOULD WORK, with the VA11A plugged in, AHP was not getting all of the CM15A signals.  Unplug the VA11A and no problem (except for that damn popup telling you the VA11A isn't plugged in).

If you really want to run a full-blown X10 system with cameras, sensors, macros, et al, use an XP desktop with multi-channel USB (2.0). 

Or wait for x10 to come out with Vista-compatible drivers - (but don't hold yer breath!)

Personally, I run my cameras via Vanguard on the laptop, and everything else via AHP and my Vista desktop.  While I don't have the iWitness functionality, everything seems to work..... ::)

Could you possibly be able to make a text file of the VA11a driver mod you made and paste it here along with what editor you used?  It would be a great resource for the frustrated Vista users. -:)

Good Idea Dan Lawrence   :)% Simply renaming the file with a "txt" extention will work then it can be posted here!  ;)
Frustrated Vista users can just save the text file and rename the extention back to"inf" place it in the proper folder and cross their fingers that it works! :'

Here you go....rename using note pad and copy to C:\Program Files\Common Files\X10\DriverInstall\VA11A Video Capture".  Uninstall the VA11A in the Device manager and then plug it back in and let it rediscover.  It will come up in Video devices as not active, go to it and reinstall driver and point the process to go the folder you just put it in.
