Cannot [re]install the Virtual Ambient Light Sensor RRS feed

  • Question

  • Has any one else had any problems with the Virtual Ambient Light Sensor driver?  Tht first time I installed it every thing worked fine.  Today I tried to run VirtualLightSensor.exe and got the following message.

    Failed to create virtual device instance, please be sure you are running this tool elevated as administrator, and that you have the VirtualLightSensor driver installed properly

    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver from the command line with pnputil.  I get back responses that indicate success but the error message is still returned when I try to run VirtualLightSensor.exe.

    I'm running this on a 64-bit system with the UAC security turned off (so everything is running with Admin privs).

    It takes all the running you can do to stay in one place.If you want to get somewhere else,you must try to run at least twice as fast as that.
