    Help!! And sorry if I missed any previous posts.
    I have a Phantom Vision 2+ v3. I got a new computer with windows 8.1
    After having a hard time finding the driver on the new (disregard) the PV2+v3 webpage. I tried to download it. Got to where the folders transfer from left to right and message says unable to download, error. Turned off Firewall and the same thing. I did download the Assistant and the RC assistant but obviously they won't work without the driver properly installed
    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    If you have a friend you can have him email the driver as an attachment and you can extract it and install it then. It should be a small enough file that that should work. If you can't get someone just holler.

    I'll try that. I have the driver on my desktop. So I will email it to myself and check it out. Thanks!

    RoyVa. That didnt work. I get the black installer downliaded to my desktop. But when i click it it asked for language, then plug in quad and turn on, then when the install box comes up and I click downliad, thats when it say unable to install.

    I know you are running Win 8.1, but I just installed the P2 software on a Windows 7 box about an hour ago. Attached the Vision+, powered on & waited for the "Hardware connected" ding. Ran the driver installer, selected English, waited until it asked me to approve unverified software driver, done deal. What is the reason it is giving for not being able to install?

    You may have to temporarily shut off you anti-virus program. Also right click on the Windows driver and do the run as administrator to install. Should install then.

    I did turn off all the virus protection. And Dirty Bird. I get to the point where it shows folder transferring. Does that for like 10 secs. Then a dialog box comes up and say installation failed. Thats it.

    Try to...Save file first to your computer. Right click on the file and run as adminstrator.
