What software do I need for Windows 10?

Post by MrGwilliam » Fri 15 Sep , 2017 15:05 pm


I've just started working at a secondary school and have a Denford microrouter in my room. I can tell from the information it was produced in 2006 and it has the F1 competition in school stickers on it. The school are running Windows 10 on site and I know it connects to the computer by usb. If it helps at all the bed of the router is vacuum suction.

Luckily we have the original install discs - they state windows Xp or 2000. Unfortunately my school do not support these platforms any longer. Does anybody know what software I need to operate this machinery? Plus where to find it.

The machinery could only have been used once or twice and it would be a shame to have replace.

If anyone could help it would be much appreciated.

you don't say what software or versions you have however vr5 will do it (you prob have vr2 with it saying xp/2000), somewhere on here there is a list of all versions and compatibility with different OS.
