    Can't get my GQ-4X programmer working. Had it working fine in an old laptop running XP. That laptop died, got a new one with windows 10, and I have a desktop with windows 7. Cant get it to work in either one. Driver seems to have installed fine in desktop with Windows 7, but it still wont work - just says "Demo Mode" - and when I go to detect hardware I get "Cannot detect hardware".
    Tech support is Non-existent.
    Any help is appreciated.

    Make sure you download the GQ-4X driver, rather than the GQ-4x4 driver--they are different devices.

    List items #8 or #9 depending on your operating system.

    Support requests are usually responded to in a day or two.

    Did you try to "right click" the program, and hit: "Run as administrator" ? Also try plugging in the USB cable to the back of the PC not the front also try using the separate power adapter . (DC9V 200mA)

    I have not used mine in a while but remember having difficulty at first getting it to work. I believe I had to update the USB drivers for the device to be found.

    manually install the driver. it doesnt seem to "plug and play". Should be good after that.

    Thanks Forceflow, you rock! I was hung up on this same thing, didn't notice the subtle difference between 4x and 4x4.
