Configure hardware

When I start the software, a strange dialog box named ‘Configure Hardware’ pops up. What’s wrong?

The dialog ‘Configure hardware’ is raised by a hardware driver (OceanOptics spectrometers) which cannot find its initialization file ooidrv.ini in the Windows directory.
The easiest way to avoid this is to set the second item of the dialog, the ‘A/D converter type) to ‘NONE’ and then quit the dialog with OK.

The setup routine should have copied a file named ooidrv.ini with proper settings to the Windows directory which obviously did not happen in your case.
