DisplayLink (for example)


DisplayLink USB graphics technology is a unique approach to USB graphics, allowing smooth video playback and providing a low latency connection that feels very much like a traditional monitor while providing the “plug and display” simplicity of USB. DisplayLink USB graphics technology allows for high resolution, full 32-bit color graphics, at resolutions up to 2560×1600 (depending on chip used).

Fix your M$ WVS 6TO4 adapter errors by downgrading !

A lot of googled webpages seem to suggest you can fix your WVS 6TO4 yellow exclaimation mark device errors

6TO4 Adapter
This device cannot start (Code 10)

by downgrading to WXP which sounds a bit drastic to me !


However according to ComputerWorld  only certain WVS Licences can be downgraded to WXP ! Owners of the OEM editions of Vista Business and Vista Ultimate can downgrade to XP … but Vista Home Basic and Vista Home Premium owners can't !

M$ TechNet has a few less drastic options:

  1. Uninstall 6TO4 & reinstall 6TO4
  3. Just ignore it ! You can completely ignore this error, if there isn’t IPv6 network deployed in the environment. The error won’t affect your system.

Finally the best bet may be to 'UPGRADE' to Ubuntu but then your Wi-Fi might stop working instead like mine did !

You just can't win ! Or maybe its time to switch to Sun OpenSolaris ?
