"Generic Host Process" error when installing new hardware

    I am trying to install a Colorvision Spyder2 with the x64 drivers v 2.3.2.
    I get the "new hardware found" when I connect the hardware to my USB-port,
    then click "install automatically". After a bit, I get a "Generic Host
    Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close".
    Clicking Cancel won't help, I can only kill the task.

    What's happening?

    Oh, odd. When I do a complete manual install, the drivers are properly
    installed. Well, that one got fixed, but still, why the error on automatic

  3. I am not familliar with that gear, but could it be one of those instances
    when the driver installation has to be performed by the native installer and
    then Windows protests over the install process being tampered with? - I've
    seen that happen a couple of times and found it very confusing at first.

    I believe the problem is with Windows trying to automatically find the
    driver. You may need to repair Windows files from your cd-rom of Windows.
