Octopus 550 PCI installing drivers
Trying to get Octopus550 to work. It is in slot and octopus cable connected. 

Windows device manager sees that PCI card is there but when trying to load drivers I get error saying, "Windows found driver software but encountered an error while attempting to install it. Lava Octopus PCI ports 1-4, A service installation section in this INF file is invalid.

Never mind. Software guru budy from Canada fixed it for me.

I think the file got corrupted when I downloaded it, after I downloaded the driver again it was fine.
