    I have been fighting installing driver for capture card all day. Every time it tries to install, it comes up with"This operation requires an interactive window station" And that is where the only choice is to close it. I have been googling for 5 hours and there is not a fix that I have found that works. This is 32 bit Windows 7.

    Have you tried disabling your anti virus and firewall before installing? Do you have UAC enabled? If so turn it off and see if it will install. What capture card is it?
    Also what driver version are you trying to install?

    ANtivirus turned off, UAC first thing I disable and firewall turned off. It is Pro149 with Conexant BT878 chip on 4 port. Use it for CCTV cameras. Works great in Vista 32 but has been pure misery for 2 days to get it to work. Even reinstalled Vista on another drive to make sure I got the correct .inf. Before that 7 would not even try to install the Conexant driver. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit.
    Thanks,

    Problem

    Has anyone ran into this interactive station when trying to install drivers? One fix on Google was to reinstall 7 with the card in. Did that, no change.
    Thanks,
