Hi,
Im trying to install a driver on my Compaq PC for a (dont laugh!) Voyager 105 modem and keep getting the error message "Cant get registry value Key=software/GlobespanVirta/ Adsl value = driver type"
Any suggestions?
Cheers
Jude

Hi Judie,

Try saving this to a text file with notepad and then name it. voyager105.reg
Using NOTEPAD when you do a File-Save As if you put quotes before and after it will save the .REG instead of .TXT

so it would be like: "voyager105.reg"

Code:
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GlobespanVirata\Adsl]
"annexType"=""
"driverDir"=""
"driverType"=""
"ispSection"=""
"layer3Protocol"=""
"modulation"=""
"vci"=""
"vpi"=""
Then once you save it, find it and double-click on it and allow it to update the Registry.

Then try to reinstall the drivers and let us know how it goes.


Make sure the registry key location is spelled EXACTLY as the error says, if not then it need to be modified to the same name.
