How do I upgrade a MerlinIP board to Windows driver release 34 and firmware 0402 from a driver release 33?

To upgrade a MerlinIP board to driver release 34 and firmware release 0402, begin by running the card in a system using the version 33 driver.

Then, upgrade the firmware using the utilities and instructions found in the Dropbox

\Skymicro_Releases\Latest_Merlin\MerlinIP_Firmware

This folder contains the latest firmware releases for MerlinIP products, along with the load utility and instructions.  The MerlinIP card can store up to 4 different versions of firmware; be certain that the correct load quadrant is active before power cycling the system.

When the firmware update is complete, do not shut down the system.  Use the Windows Control Panel to uninstall and remove the old driver from the system.  Be sure to remove the driver completely off the hard drive when prompted.

At this point, power cycle the machine

Windows should detect the card and prompt for a driver.  Follow the prompts “Browse my Computer for Driver Software” and “Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer”.   On the “select the device driver you want to install for this hardware” prompt, select “Have Disk” and select the release 34 driver.    Reboot after the driver is installed.
