Can't get the patin-couffin-egine to work

can’t get the patin-couffin-egine to work.
I always get that error message (driver out of date. install a more recent one). No matter if I delete vso_loc or not.

I’m not even sure if the couffin driver is actually installed because the cd access configuration panel only lets me select aspi32 :-((

any ideas?

this crops up while installing blindwrite suite:
Destination directory:

Start Menu folder:
BlindWrite Suite

Hardware access layer installation status :
Patin-Couffin Access layer selected.
Trial period already started
File pcouffin.inf not found or not reachable.

anything serious?
