    This means that windows requires this driver to support ACPI hardware properly,
    and on your system it was not found in drivers cache. This may happen if you've
    used some kind of "cleanup" utility that alters driver cache.

    To fix that - you need to insert Windows installation CD and point driver
    installer to its location.

    I was able to resolve this issue by adding an alias for "localhost" in /etc/hosts to

    It appears that the app is hardcoded to connect to "localhost" but many Macs don't actually have any IP mapping for the alias (as opposed to Windows where it's wired into the OS).

    Yes, sorry with this, it was a bug and it was fixed. This problem still presents at 3540 but will disappear with the next nearest update.
