Configure MSL2024 to work with w2003


I'm trying to setup a w2003 Enterprise SP2 itanium 2 installed in a Integrity VM to work with a MSL2024 library.
I've assigned the MSL from the HPUX host to the w2003 as device type 'changer'.
Tried to install the HPTapeDriversInstaller.zip and 1-8G2andMSLG3signed1.6.0.0.zip found at http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=ro&prodNameId=3239075&prodTypeId=12169&prodSeriesId=1809913&am

first file installed ok,but the tape library wasn't detected in w2003.
Having a look over the release notes of the HPTapeDriversInstaller.zip found that some utility named MSL-MedChgr-WindowsDrivers.zip is needed in order to install the specific MSL2024 tape library driver.I couldn't find this utility.Can someone provide me a link ?

Hi Luk,

I've already downloaded that driver,however,extracting it only provides 3 files which has to be used by some other utility to be installed.That's why I was looking the utility mentioned in the release notes.
I found no docs about how to link the driver that you've mentioned with the HPTapeDriversInstaller.zip utility.
