Can not install VXI-MXI-2 driver under Windows XP

I have a new IBM IntelliStation M Pro PC with Windows XP Pro (but only Service Pack 1) that is having a hard time getting the VXI-MXI-2 PCI driver installed. It reports: "There was a problem installing this hardware: PCI-MXI-2 This device cannot start. (Code 10)".
 
Taking a look at some issues raised on the "Troubleshooting PCI-GPIB, PCI-DAQ, PCI-MXI-2, PCI-IMAQ Installation Problems" page, I have dealt with the following:
 
1) "PCI Bus Mastering" - originally this was turned off for both PCI slots.  I have turned both slots on, but no change.
 
2) PCI slots - I have tried the card in both PCI slots in this machine.
 
3) "More that one PCI bridge (very rare)" - my system reports two other PCI bridges: one for the SCSI interface to my hard drive and another for use of the 1394 port. Could this be the issue and what would be needed to fix it?
Thanks!

NI-VXI 3.3.1 installs an older version of NI-VISA (2.6, I believe) which sometimes has problems with newer systems and results in this "Code 10."  Installing the latest version of NI-VISA (currently 3.5) should fix the problem.
