The issue appeared to be that the 32-bit driver that I got from the HP
Windows service pack (SP32158.exe) was able to detect the chip. Apparently
the 64-bit driver did not so that the chip address had to be entered. And,
it passed its first test last night at MIT. It came up very nicely. And, as
I mentioned, being at MIT automatically gives us a few additional geek
points.
