A couple of you have had issues with getting the [email protected] software to recognise your iQue Player on 64 bit Windows Operating Systems (both Windows 7 and Windows 8 ). I too had this problem and did a bit of digging and was eventually able to get it to work at no extra cost on my own 64 bit Windows 7 machine.

What you'll need
Microsoft have created a tool called Windows Virtual PC, and with this they have also released an accompanying tool called Windows XP Mode. You'll need to download both of these:

Windows Virtual PC: http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=3702
Windows XP Mode: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8002

I'm getting an error saying Windows XP Mode cannot be run on this version of windows, help!
Follow these instructions: http://www.tomshardware.com/news/windows-xp-mode-windows-7-win7,10213.html

Install Windows XP on your Windows Virtual PC. So that eventually you'll find yourself at the Windows XP desktop.

Step 1: Configuring Windows Virtual PC
In Windows Virtual PC's menu at the top, navigate to Tools -> Settings.
  • Go to Networking and change your Adapter settings to "Shared Networking (NAT)"
  • Go to Integration Features and select your own computer's C drive from the Drives list.
Completely exit from Windows Virtual PC and then open it back up again.

Step 2: Installing [email protected]
Within the virtual Windows XP, navigate to Start -> My Computer and you'll see your own computer's drive in the "Other" area. Navigate to your iQue setup.exe within this drive and install [email protected] on the virtual Windows XP.

Step 3: Attaching the iQue
Turn your iQue on and connect it to any of your computer's USB ports. Your own Operating System will come up with an error saying the drive could not be found (thus why we can't just use [email protected] in the first place).

In Windows Virtual PC's top menu, click on USB at the top. Here you should see your iQue listed as "iQue Player":



Step 4: Install the iQue driver on your virtual Windows XP
You'll probably notice that [email protected] still doesn't recognise your iQue. However you should now see a little tooltip appear to the right of your XP's taskbar and a Found New Hardware window will open:



Click on the Found New Hardware window which has opened and select No when asked if you want Windows Update to look for the driver:



Then click that you don't have a CD and you'll be greeted with a screen asking which driver you want to install:



Ignore the digitally signed warning and click Next to be greeted with an even scarier-looking warning:



Click Continue Anyway and your driver will be installed - woo!



Step 5: Getting the iQue to work with [email protected]
Now that you have the driver installed. Unplug your iQue and plug it back in. Now go back to the menu in Windows Virtual PC and once again select USB and you should again see your iQue listed (as in Step 3). Click to attach it.

Now open [email protected] and click on the apple to get to the games list. Click on any of the games and you should, provided all the above steps went well, now get past the connection error:



Now simply follow the instructions listed in MHFsilver's thread to download the games you want: http://forums.zeldaspeedruns.com/index.php?topic=1457.0

Great guide! I added a link to this topic in mine just in case people stumble upon that post first.
Don't question my knowledge of the Ryuusei no Rockman series.
