Issue Details:

-Driver GUI incompatible with 800x600, forcing user to have to blindly TAB+ALT an Install.
GUI needs to be able to seen on a 800x600 display during first install.

-12.6-Lagacy_xp32_dd_ccc_whql.exe drivers go thru the motions of the install, but do not ask for restart after install.
After Manually restarting, Windows detects new hardware, but does not install anything. Says it can't find drivers.

Installing Older version "10.7" Works. Install asks to overwrite all the newer files from the 12.6 install,
Then asks for Restart. After restart, drivers work fine.

Have Disabled all Antivrus Software & even uninstalled older version prior to trying new version.
Results are the same. New Drivers act like they install, but do not.

I'm not sure what the question is. Anything above Windows ME can do higher than 800x600 using the standard VGA driver. Even under safe mode. First change the resolution, then install the drivers, and you'll see the whole installer.
