[wireless] WMP11v4 & WLAN Monitor 2.0 Troubleshooting

I am trying to install the WLAN Monitor 2.0 on a Windows XP Pro computer that has v4 of the WMP11 wireless card. I heard that the utility is "incompatible" with XP, but there still should be a way to run the thing even if it is.

After installing it, it sits in the systray and says 'WMP11V4 is not installed' when I hover over the icon. If I right click -> About, it says "unknown" for the driver, and also "unknown" for firmware. If I open the utility, it says that the WMP11 is Inactive.

How can I get this to work?

I have done the following:
~Disabled Windows' from auto-configuring my wireless networks (from Network Connections -> Properties of Wirelss Connection -> Wireless Networks tab.
~Tried to reinstall/uninstall drivers/config utility
~Stopped the Zero Config Service in XP

Any suggestions??

Thanks in advance.
