Microsoft GPS 360 and x64 and x64 Vista – Getting 64 bit support

December 19, 2005 at 1:06 pm Leave a comment

Microsoft and Pharos seemingly don’t want to support 64 bit Windows computing on XP x64 or Vista Betas x64 with 64 bit GPS drivers. Here’s how I got everything working on both platforms and with Mappoint 2005 and MS Streets and Tips 2006.

1. Download the Prolific driver from

http://www.prolific.com.tw/support/files//IO%20Cable/PL-2303/Drivers%20-%20Generic/Windows/wd_pl2303h-hx-x_64-bit_v2018.zip

and expand/extract to a folder on your hard drive

2. Edit both inf files and change all instances of the ID to USBVID_067B&PID_AAA0

3. Plug in the GPS 360 and use the browse option to point to the folder where the files including the edited versions reside. Accept the unsigned driver if it displays.

4. Open Mappoint/Streets and set the comport (most likely the highest one displayed).

5. Enjoy 64 bit support!
