    What OS are you running and what is installed at \Program Files\wi9130~1 ?

    I am running Windows XP

    Where can I find this file? \Program Files\wi9130~1 I can not find it on my computer anywhere.

    yes, that short name is a pain.

    c:\Program Files is the location, but you will need to eyeball the directory names therein
    to find the best match
