I'm trying to install the drivers for a wireless network adaptor - realtek RTL8192CU. When I try to install from the disc, I get 'runtime error - abnormal programme termination and lots of numbers and things. I have tried to download it from the realtek site to a flash drive from the laptop and install directly from there or copy it over to a folder on the dektop and run it from there. No joy at all. It installs but half way through I get the message 'device drivers were not succesfully installed'. The programme keeps running and reboots the PC. Then when I check device manager-proprties I see 'WIndows cannot initialise the device driver for the hardware (code 37).
I know it's not an expensive piece of kit, it's just nuisance value as I live way out in the middle of nowhere and it's a full day out to go back to the store!
I should mention I am running windows 7 home premium 64 bit.
