Description

Updating usbehcd.sys to 10.186 (or even to 10.185) puts Pete Brown's usbcfg.exe in an endless loop with popup error message
"Error GetBuildLevel? 3".

Things worked fine up to 10.177. It is only usbehcd.sys.

It's a bug in usbcfg.exe in that it does not properly parse for the buildlevel string contained in USBEHCD.SYS. Pete wanted to update usbcfg.exe. There is nothing I can do about it. There is no problem with USBEHCD.SYS as such.

usbcfg.exe is improperly parsing the buildlevel string in USBEHCD.SYS.

I'll try a workaround but I won't promise it will work. Make sure you use the most recent version of usbcfg.exe.

I don't know if Pete has fixed the problem in the meantime. I suggest you address this problem in the OS/2 newsgroups. Maybe Pete follows the discussion.

Try version 0.7.5. It's now on Hobbes.

USBcfg beta 0.7.5 has had little testing here but seems to be working
fine and is now on hobbes as a ZIP package.

Not sure when I'll get the chance to put a WPI package together -
especially as I am not a Warpin Expert  :-)

The zip file does have an install.cmd for those people who prefer a
semi-automated installation.
