CCS 3.3 + Windows 7 + XDS510 USB = ????

Other Parts Discussed in Thread: CCSTUDIO


For various corporate reasons, I am trying to get CCS 3.3 running on Windows 7 (64-bit) using XDS510 USB (Plus) emulator. CCS 3.3 seems fine on Windows 7 (though it is not officially tested on it), but I'm having trouble finding drivers for XDS510 USB. Per the Spectrum Digital site, XDS510 USB drivers for CCS 3.3 are only available for Windows OS's up to and including Vista. Per same site, there *are* drivers for XDS510 USB for Windows 7 (including 64-bit), but they are only for CCS 4.2, and come bundled with CCS 4.2.

Does anyone know of any workaround to get XDS510 USB working on Windows 7 with CCS 3.3? I tried just using the 3.3 drivers on Windows 7, but had (not unexpected) problem when driver for XDS510 USB tried to install. Ideally, the Win7 drivers bundled with CCS 4.2 will also work for 3.3 on Windows 7, but because 3.3 is not "officially" tested on Windows 7, they are not independently readily available? Or there exist, but are not readily available, Win7 drivers for 3.3, but are hidden because 3.3 is not "officially" tested on Windows 7?

Any advice other than "upgrade to 4.2" or "stick with XP" or "get a new emulator" would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
