Opening the IO Libraries Suite on my new Windows 8.1 causes an error. It was saying something about DPInst.exe. I think that this is related to a driver but I'm not sure how to fix it. Is it the driver for the IO Libraries Suite? Please send me some ideas.

I don’t think you are using the version that supports Microsoft Windows 8 or 8.1 because if you do then you won’t have this problem. IO Libraries Suite versions 15.1 and 15.5 are the versions that don’t support Windows 8.1. Maybe you installed one of these. The IO Libraries Suite 15.1 works only on Windows 2000 Service Pack 4, Windows XP Service Pack 3 32-bit, and Windows Vista Service Pack 1 32-bit.
The IO Libraries Suite 15.5, on the other hand, supports Windows XP Service Pack 2 32-bit, Windows Vista Service Pack 1, and Windows 7. To make sure you install the correct version for your operating system, download and install IO Libraries Suite 16.3 Update 2. This version supports Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 64-bit, Windows Server 2012 64-bit, Windows XP Service Pack 3 32-bit, Windows Vista Service Pack 1, Windows 7 Service Pack 1, and Windows 8.
This IO Libraries Suite version includes support for Microsoft Windows 8.1, USB 3.0, and more.
