Need help getting Dexdrive to work

Hmm... This is a good question as I have purchased a Dex drive several months ago but have yet to set it up. I am running windows 10. Also Kartmaster had mentioned to me that he has some software to run the Dex drive, I wonder if its an updated version from the one that came in the box?

Is there anyway to do this without having to run virtual console? Trying on windows 10 to save a glitched ghost for MK64. Time is of the essence as my memory card tends to erase itself every couple days.

Thanks kartmaster! I've been doing a bunch of research and so far it looks like I need to buy an old PC lol.

Edit: Well I cont my PC to recognize the adapter for the DexDrive but not the device itself. Also my DexDrive's light doesn't turn on when plugged in. Does it only light up when transferring data? I hope its not broken as it came complete in a very nice box in good condition.

I am having the same problem that Rocky is having. I am running Win 10 and I have extracted the files. When I run the autorun and I get the Dex installer app, but when I click install it seems to crash. This is the farthest I have come with this program so thanks kartmaster, almost there!

I did notice that when running compatibility (xp service pack 3) or as administrator the buttons will change to a purple color when clicked before freezing but without those settings the button doesn't change colors. seems like I'm getting closer. Too bad you cant run compatibility mode for Win ME or 98

Ill check it out kartmaster, again thanks for all your help!

Edit: well I tried installing C++ 2005 but it looks like I have C++ 2010 and it doesn't want to install an older version.

Man, I was hoping to do the same thing and pick up and old PC to use my dex drive. It's kinda funny how hard it is to get this piece of tech working that's 10 plus years old. Someday Rocky we will be able to use these Dex Drives!
