Re: Proficio - Quisk on Windows? (N7CXI)
toggle quoted message. . .
I use the command window (started as an administrator) to run quisk.
I go to the directory C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\quisk and then start it using: python quisk.py
You should be able to see any errors printed out by Python in this way.
Make sure you use a text editor to make changes to the file.
Let me know how you go. If we can find a robust solution for a few versions of W7 and W10 that have this problem it would be ideal, as I said my test options here are a bit limited.

Just to say that I have the USB permission problem with my Windows 7 ( presumably with updates to number 834 ) So maybe that makes it W7, version 834, . . . . Lol.
ANYWAY, I inserted your code as below and it did do something.
Quisk will now longer start up.
There is a script that flashes up for a microsecond so at some point I shall have to slow that script down a bit so that I can read it and see what it is all about.
Thanks for your efforts.
I had the same issue on my Windows 10 PC.
After a bit of investigation with the python scripts it seems like quisk was selecting the libusb1.py backend rather than the libusb0.py backend that matches the libusb0 driver.
I managed to fix this by adding
_lib.usb_init() to get_backend() in the file C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\quisk\usb\backend\libusb1.py (this is toward the end of the file)
This part of the file now looks like this.
if _lib is None:
_lib = _load_library(find_library)
# added a new line here
Now when it tries to initialise the library after loading the libusb1.py backend it fails (as it should) and then continues on to load the correct libusb0.py backend. It seems like there is some variation between computers about how this part of the code behaves - but this change sorted out my problems. I have to say it hasn't been checked extensively as I only have one windows 10 machine and no Linux machines at present.

I'll have to dig deeper into this issue, at least I have something to compare with now.
