Computer shuts down when Leapster2 attached

Note: The Leapster2 was last sold in 2012 and is no longer supported. The LeapFrog Connect software for this product is offered as-is. 


If you are running Windows XP, this problem can be resolved by downloading Windows XP Service Pack 3 from the Microsoft website.  This download can be accessed here:http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/windowsxp/sp3/default.mspx

If this doesn't work, or if you already have XP Service Pack 3, there is a Microsoft Hotfix for this issue. 

Request the Hotfix from Microsoft here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/913318/en-us

  • After clicking this link, click the link on the top left of the page that says "View and request hotfix downloads"
  • Check the box for Hotfix File name Fix172242
  • Enter your email address and the verification code.
  • Microsoft will email a link with an executable file for this Hotfix.  Click the link and save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click the icon the Hotfix installs on your desktop and follow the steps for installation.
