I want to force a driver install on Vista to get this certain driver recognized and I know what it is, but Vista refuses to understand that the driver is in the same folder as the 2 other drivers associated to the same thing is. I can't figure out how to force the drivers unlike in XP where I could if need be. Anyway to do this or do I need to know some hacking into the OS?

Have you tried installing the driver via the device manager and choosing the proper driver files manually?

Its my TV Tuner Card drivers. It installed the Connexant and the TV tuner, but not the TV Tuner's Crossbar that is really needed in order to make it work. I want to check if I can get the TV tuner to work on Vista and see if I should eliminate the possibility of it being a hardware issue. Ok Zombie, I'll try and find that box.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
