Installer exits without doing anything

The DisplayLink_7.6M1.exe file on the CD that came with my USB 2.0 DisplayLink adapter does not run correctly on the Windows XP computer that I need to install the adapter on. The program appears to run for several seconds and then disappears without ever opening a window or providing a message as to what the problem might be.

Hi Lou,

Sorry to hear about the issues. Though the installer isn’t too different between the different XP versions, let’s try the most recent drivers and see if they behave any differently:…

If that doesn’t do the trick, please email (subject: Ticket 109324) and we’ll dig into some log files to see if we can get a better idea what’s causing the installer to close.
