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 Windows 32 Bit and 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:

Just experienced this. If you still have the folder, try searching for "Nxt" on your PC, you'll see a .msi file which you click to install the version 1.20.115 driver successfully. The .msi is not missing, maybe the path was wrong.

The driver says it came from LEGO, and the .msi file was located in my Downloads folder, at the time only the LEGO folder was in it, so I'm confident that the msi file didnt come from anywhere else.

I don't understand. Are you saying that you found the missing files somewhere on your harddisk? In what way is that related to the fact that Lego's download is broken since it doesn't contain the missing files? The files will not be on everybody's computer, especially if the Fantom driver is the first piece of Lego software that is being installed.
