Official Fantom driver download is broken

Postby skoehler » Wed Apr 16, 2014 5:50 pm

The Fantom Driver (also sometimes spelled Phantom Driver) download provided on the official Lego homepage is currently broken. The ZIP file that can be downloaded at
http://www.lego.com/en-us/mindstorms/do ... om-driver/ is incomplete. The following two files are missing in the ZIP file:
Code: Select all
NXT Fantom Drivers/Windows/1.2/1.2.0/Products/LEGO_NXT_Driver_64_Support/NXT_D00/LegoMindstormsNXTdriver64Supp.msi
NXT Fantom Drivers/Windows/1.2/1.2.0/Products/LEGO_NXT_Driver_64_Support/NXT_D00/LegoMindstormsNXTdriver64Supp_mft.cab

Thus, the installation of the driver will fail on 64 Bit Windows with an error message. Installation on OS X (32 Bit and 64 Bit) seems to work fine.

A working Windows version of the Fantom driver version 1.2.0 is available on the RobotC homepage. The ZIP archive provided by the RobotC folks is complete and the driver has been tested with leJOS. However, the download does not include the OS X version of the driver. The URL to download is:
