$150 later with starter kit and add on motor control dead in the water. - having trouble installing on windows xp - driver from 2007 - downloaded software twice and driver software not on the computer.

What do you mean by “driver from 2007”?

Have you followed the directions in the getting started guide, specifically which directory to select when “installing” the driver?
