There have been multiple posts regarding problems in Vista and this post is to inform people of how to fix it once and for all.

1. Make sure first and foremost you are running a Vista account that has administrator privileges

2. Make sure you run the kaiEngine.exe as well as kaiConfig.exe from C:\Program Files\XLink Kai Evolution VII as administrator.

Open up the XLink folder under Program Files
Right-click on kaiEngine and choose Properties
Select the Compatibility tab
Enable the option "Run this program as administrator"
Repeat for kaiConfig


When Kai starts up Windows will display a warning screen. Click on the "Allow" option to let it continue.


MeanMF's original topic- http://www.teamxlink.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=20068

3. Disable the User Account Control UAC

UAC forces users that are part of the local administrators group to run like they were regular users with no administrative privileges.

I'd say most likely this could be another problem. Even if you have it run as admin this may make it not work because of this. Follow one of the ways to disable it here


4. Make sure this is no firewalls that may be blocking XLink's access to the PSSDK. If you think one of them may be blocking it..... disable or configure your firewall to give XLink full access.

if you have a router you may have to forward a port .. check the following 2 links..

5.another option is to disable vista driver signing ..

Disable Vista Driver Signing.

Here's the Vista x64 RTM method for permanently disabling the driver signing requirement:

Right-click "command prompt" and select "run as administrator"
At the command prompt, type bcdedit /set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

Meathod number 5 was found out and tried by MeanMF, not myself
If all of the following methods above do not help you have the option to try another version of XLink that uses Winpcap instead of PSSDK

1. Download and Install Winpcap- http://www.winpcap.org/install/default.htm

2. Install XLink Kai normally with the installer(from the site\with default folder)

Kai Download Link- http://www.teamxlink.co.uk/?go=download
Make sure you choose the one that says "Windows XP/2000/Vista"

3. Download http://www.teamxlink.co.uk/binary/XLinkKai-

4. Extract the files out of the Zip( the kaiLaunch, KaiConfig,and KaiEngine files)

5. Go to C:\Program Files\XLink Kai Evolution VII on your computer and overwrite the current kaiLaunch,KaiConfig,and KaiEngine files with the new ones from that zip file.

6. Run the new Kai Config file from that folder and select Winpcap instead of PSSDK

7. Run Kai Smile
