    Hi everyone
    I’ve got an FB3 box that is refusing to install its own drivers when plugged into a new laptop. It Works fine on an older laptop.
    The new laptop is running windows 11

    any hints or suggestions? Thanks

    I have just purchased quickshow and a FB3, loaded onto an old laptop running windows 11. I downloaded the current install from the website because I do not have a CD reader.
    1) I didn't see that it installed the Flashback 3 Drivers. But I do get a green LED. Is everything fine?
    2) I'm also see the LED turn other colors as I try to connect to the laser. Where do I find out what those colors mean?
    3) I am attempting to control a E--a Light RGB 246 Mini. It appeared to respond to quickshow, but I could not tell what it was projecting - maybe my images but with a flipped axis? Or maybe it was simply running something off of it's built in card? Any input on this?

    1. The installer installs the driver for you. Once you run the installer of QS, the driver is automatically installed.
    2. Please check the FB3 hardware manual : https://wiki.pangolin.com/doku.php?id=hardware:fb3#led_light_codes
    . Put the scan speed at 15 k first, also set the projection size in projector settings on 25%*25% , try to start with that and take it from there. These sorts of lasers lasers are often limited in their abillity to scan decent patterns through ILDA.
