Hi Walter,

IDriver may not have installed properly. Try to check if the following files in C:Program FilesCommon FilesInstallShieldDriver8Intel 32 are there:
 
_ISRES1033.dll
IDriver.exe
IScript8.dll
ISRT.dll
IUser8.dll
objps8.dll
 
If so, try these steps:
1. Click on the Start button, type in the search bar the following:
a. Regsvr32 /IScript8.dll
b. Regsvr32 /ISRT.dll
c. Regsvr32 /IUser8.dll
d. Regsvr32 /objps8.dll
e. Then, run idriver /regserver.
 
If it works after that, the problem has to do with installation of IDriver engine itself.

This is a very common problem that installers can have. In short, the computer tries to install the necessary drivers for this device and the error that ensues happens usually because of system privileges. It does not seem to be a hardware issue.

Like stated previously, one of the ways to solve this problem is by removing some entries from regedit; however, Microsoft created a patch which will automatically and safely do this for you. This is the most advisable way to take care of this problem in order to avoid meddling with the registry.

In order to solve this problem solely follow this link.
