This worked for me (shortened version of what's up top)...
Download Remote Wonder software version 1.4 (search google for "remote-wonder-1-40-0-0.exe"). Supposedly, only this version works right.
Download ftp.x10.com/pub/applications/drivers/x10drivers_x64.exe (x10 drivers).
Make sure remote wonder is UNplugged.
Install RW-1.4. Reboot.
After rebooting, plug Remote Wonder into USB port. The Driver Wizard will search, find, and correctly install drivers.
Run "x10drivers_x64.exe." Reboot.
The Remote Wonder icon should now be among the hidden tray icons. Everything works. Only issue is randomly the remote response will drop from the computer, but this seems to be pretty infrequently and just requires a reboot.
Couldn't get this to work either. "After rebooting, plug Remote Wonder into USB port. The Driver Wizard will search, find, and correctly install drivers.". At this point it doesn't find and correctly install drivers. It reports that it found a usb composite device and recognized it successfully, but then finds two more unknown devices for which the driver installation was not successful. Even after installing the x10 drivers and restarting these 2 devices remain as unknown devices in device manager.
Are you using Remote Wonder II? (this is what I'm using)
I checked the rwII dongle and remote on xp, and they aren't broken or anything.
EDIT: i followed up with mugsy's method, [since, as you indicated, asteigrod, your method is encapsulated within his,] unfortunately to no avail! =(. Basically after it restarted the final time, it, (the rw 3.04 software), gave a few errors then gave an error saying it failed trying to install driver software.
Going into device manager there are still the two unknown devices generated after plugging in the dongle, and, after unplugging/replugging the dongle yet again, it is still unable to locate the drivers to install.
If anyone has any hints please let me know. If someone could let me know of the exact driver that was installed, through device manager or some similar manner, maybe I could force it to install a particular driver. I can manually select drivers from the x10 x64 set, but there are so many I don't know which is the right one. Other than that, I think it may have something to do with it being Remote Wonder II.
