In my case, it doesn't work this way as has been discussed earlier in this thread. I tried it again today with the version below, still the same problem. The errors go away and the self test completes without errors if I rename the "FreeCAD 0.14" folder inside "Program Files", create a new folder with that same name there and place the three main folders from the dev snapshot inside. The 3D mouse still doesn't work, though.

You may have had an issue because of the exact name of the directory. In most O/Ses you would expect to have issues if the directory really was named "FreeCAD 0.14" because it has a "full stop" in the name....even the space can cause issues in some circumstances.

I guess this is a false-positive alarm of your virus checker.

Hi

Maybe should not have mentioned the Malware message.
Just realised they are Python files and even harmless macros can set off malware detectors. :)

Is yours Plug-&-Play or has it's own software ?

Just thinking about some gaming mice. Need to be linked with the game being played :mrgreen: (?)

Any 3D mouse I know of needs some kind of (proprietary) drivers. For the windows builds, FreeCAD has a driver for 3DConnexion USB devices included. For the linux builds, there is a demon from http://spacenav.sourceforge.net/ that interfaces with the hardware (both USB and serial) for a lot of devices and in turn provides input to FreeCAD.

3DConnexion keeps dropping support for older devices from their proprietary drivers, so using your own drivers sounds like a very good idea if you want to use your device beyond their support window.

This package is from Microsoft for VS2013 which the X64 dev build is built against.

It can be downloaded here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download ... x?id=40784

You don't need to copy the redist dll's to the bin directory. The windows installer places them in the correct path for your system automatically. Try deleting from the FreeCAD bin folder and restarting FreeCAD. Just to be sure, your OS is 64-bit?
