I've been trying to get the Tarot T-2D configuration application to run for a couple of weeks in a VM with no luck. I've tried VirtualBox with:
- Windows 7
- Windows 7, running the .exe in WinXP compatibility mode
- Windows XP SP3
- Windows XP, no SPs
Each time I get a dialog from Windows telling me the application has crashed and asking about sending an error report. I would really like to be able to point my camera somewhere other than straight ahead, but until I get this app working, I can't do that.
I got the application, along with drivers for the Tarot USB dongle, from here:
I can see the "Prolific" device in Device Manager, but when I get to step 3 at the above link:
Double click on the ZYX-BMGC-EN_V1.5.exe file (found in the above zip) and the configuration UI shown below should appear
the application crashes every time. I got the gimbal from a local hobby shop, so it's not ready to roll with my Y6 like the ones direct from 3DR are.
Has anyone done this in VirtualBox? Another VM? Has anyone seen these symptoms?
