Not sure if this will add anything you have not tried yet.

Yeah, I tried all that......I've been at it for 3 days now..!
Like I said before, it worked just fine on the Windows XP laptop, but I guess the Vanguard software, (which I have since removed), is not compatible with Windows 7?
I paid $312 for this system & you'd think that at that price that "working" software would be included......
I was thinking of buying a powered USB hub & see if that might help, although I doubt it, cause it recognizes the VA12A, it just FAILS at loading the drivers...
Thanks for the help though, it is greatly appreciated
Which software did you get yours to work with? Is is working fine?

r u trying it in ahp?  latest firmware? (3.296)?

knock on wood, but my va12a/ahp (only since fw ver 3.268 or somthing like works with win7&va12) win7 pro 64bit system has been working fine.  I too thru away vangaurd quickly after switching to win7 from xp due to insurmountable problems for me.  make sure ur va12 is plugged into real usb port not hub due to power draw.  if not recognized plug inot a different usb port?

ahp.....?
Is that another software?
Is that what your running..............?
I have tried it in different USB port & Window 7 always picks up on it, but it says that drivers installation failed
Also, I noticed that after installing the Vanguard Software, that it would show up under the programs menu, but it would not install an icon on the desktop, I thought that was odd

ahp=active home pro. 
guess u are still using vangaurd then?  thought u said u uninstalled it....
if others make it work u should have a chance to also! 

maybe someone using vanguard successfully can tell u what ver they are using.  tell us what ver u r using.  might there be a newer ver than what u have?

as far out attempt, how about downloading ahp and isntalling it to get the va12 driver installed then go back and run vanguard.  i believe u can download latest ahp and install it and just not bother to register it - the drivers and all get installed before registration.

I want to remove my comment 'far out attempt' from post above.  I am 90% convinced installing ahp latest ver WILL fix your problem since it sure sounds like a va12 driver issue.  Let ahp installer install a known good driver.  u wont even have to run ahp - just install it and watch the va12 driver get installed.  then run your vangaurd.  u probably can uninstall ahp right after proving vanguard now works as long as u leave ur va12 plugged in.

ahp=active home pro...Gotcha
Mike I don't have any software installed currently.......
Your advice is for me to install ahp, & let it install the drivers & them run the Vanguard?
Could I do the same with stuff with ahp?
I never got to use the Vanguard anyway's......
Am not sure what version the Vanguard was, as I've removed it, bot I just got it sent from X10 on Tuesday.....
Let me know guys & I'll do it right away

AHP is the most currently maintained software. It will install the latest versions of the drivers for almost all components.

Dragnet ... you should have gotten an order number when you purchased AHP.  Add a -1 to the order number for the Registration Code.  Let us know when you have AHP installed.

Ok, I have downloaded the ahp software,,,,,
I then re-installed the Vanguard software & it workED
As I was plugging in my 2nd camera, I got this message:
"Windows host process (Rundll32) has stopped working"
"A problem caused the program to stop working correctly"
"Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available"
It then closed the program & of coarse no solution was given......

dragnet, were u running BOTH ahp AND vangaurd at same time?  that may be why the windows crash!  u can only run one or the other not both as the drivers will attach to the running program and both need them!  the ahp install was JUST to install and get win7 64bit working driver for your va12!  then dont run it if u want to use vangaurd.  leave it off.  I think I read they fixed some background x10net stuff (left running after closing program or something) in latest firmware but you may need a clean reboot and dont run ahp anymore;  just try ur vanguard.  Im interested in what you find.

the good news is you made progress!  seems my 90% sure it would work helped loading ahp to get driver.

Yes Mike you were on the money there, the drivers installed perfectly  ;D
I'm not running both, I'm only running the Vanguard,
I have not uninstalled the AHP, cause I'm guessing that it would also uninstall the divers?
