BeMicro (Cyclone III version) Windows 64 driver

Hi all, 

 

I'm a new FAE with Arrow, and in attempting to get BeMicro installed on my Windows 7-64 bit machine, I've noticed a lot of people having issues with this. 

 

One of our FAEs in Europe worked with Hitex to create a Windows 64 compatible driver. I've confirmed that it works, and I can talk to the BeMicro without jumping through any hoops. 

 

The new DLL should also not cause a conflict with the USB blaster driver, but I have not had the opportunity to confirm that yet. 

 

Attached is the install file. It's an exe that I added the .zip extension to in order to allow it to upload to Altera forums. 

 

Cheers.

Are you sure you just added the .zip extension? I had to run unzip to get Win7 64-bit to recognize the file. 

 

I can confirm that this driver works with the BeMicro under Win64. 

 

Thanks! 

 

Cheers, 

Dave

I just loaded the attached driver from Ilsie on my laptop with Windows 7 (64bit) and my BeMicro is now recognized.
