First time install of a brand new SpaceNavigator does not error. However 3Dconnexion Control Panel will not run, and checking in Device Manager I see under Human Interface Devices, SpaceNavigator with exclamation flag. This tells me - The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
Re-install from CD v3.1 or from download v3.4.2 gives same result. No other USB peripherals running on any ports, USB port works with other devices.
Installing the same SpaceNavigator on another PC (XP Home SP2) works fine.
If anyone has any idea what I need to check I would be grateful for your input.
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
