USB install for 95 was just too flighty.
Try http://www.usbman.com and in closing, let's never speak of 95 again? OK?
I have been trying to install USB support to my computer running Windows 95 OSR 2 (4.00.1111) for using my ColorPage Vivid III V2 scanner. I found out that I needed an upgrade patch called USB Supplement that consisted of two executables and an instruction (readme) file. I did everything according to the instruction, and got the USB in my Device Manager, but it was marked with a question mark as a device with a missing driver. When I tried to install the driver by clicking on the "Install Driver" button and letting it search for it, it did not work at first. I also tried a search on the Internet for such drivers but there was no relevant result. I installed the program for a scanner (from the original CD) but of course it failed to work saying the scanner is not found. Next time I tried to install the driver, the program asked for the file "uhcd.sys" but it was missing in my install package. I searched for it online trying to download it but got no result either. In some time after I rebooted, the device manager, to my surprise, was showing the Universal Serial Bus Controller thread as active/working, with a single "USB Root Hub" branch, but even with a working icon (not a question mark) the Properties tab shows that the driver was not properly installed.
I was advised to download a driver compliant with my motherboard. My chipset is VIA-0691 (as shown by testing software) and I have been looking for the driver. I visited the VIA website and downloaded a driver but it is incompatible with Windows 95. Actually, I have enabled USB support by patching the system (instead of 4.00.1111 the testing program now shows it already as 4.03.1214b) and now I only need a driver but there don't seem to be any that I could easily find online. Do you know any place where I could get one to resolve my case?
P.S. Please do not advise upgrading to Windows 98 or higher ))
