USBUIRT site says Girder ships with USBUIRT included.

Does the installer check for Vista?

If USBUIRT is correctly installed shouldn't I see it listed under GirderActions? When I enable/disable Global Cache in the Settings-PluginSettings-Plugins checkbox, I see it appear/disappear from the Actions list. But not so with USBUIRT.

When I select USBUIRT in the list, it says 'Plug-in is loaded(sending events)'

In my old XP installation USBUIRT seemed to come with a .dll and an .xml in the ...\UI folder

I just downloaded USBUIRT_Vista_v20204 for Vista and I see it has four files in i386 folder
ftd2xx.dll
ftdxx.lib
ftdibus.sys
uuirtdrv.dll
and no xml file.

Parent folder USBUIRT_Vista_v20204 has two files
ftdibus.cat
ftdibus.inf

How do I install them?

I just did a complete reinstall of Girder 4.

Now I see USBUIRT actions!

I may have read some old instructions on how to upgrade USBUIRT that do not apply to Vista.

Looks like the Girder installer did it for me.

Yeah just install Girder normally and use the Vista driver supplied by Jon. Both 64 and 32 bit Vista work great.
