Differences between x64 drivers (XP - Vista - 7) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm new to be a 64bit user/programmer and I have a device for home
    recording named TASCAM US-428 I've downloaded a 64bit driver from their
    website which refuses to install under Win7/x64, complaining that the
    signature cannot be verified.
     
    I don't want to abandon that device, although it's development is
    discontinued, that's why I have no hope to get an updated official
    version. Is there a way to patch the binaries in a way to let them be
    accepted or a way to cheat the installation process to get this driver
    to work? It's an official download and I guess it wasn't if it didn't
    work on earlier 64bit versions of the OS.
     
    Thanks,
    Hans

  • You can disable kernel mode driver verification all together by selecting "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement" during boot process by clicking F8 option. But this option does not survive from restart so you will have to do it again each time you boot up.

    There are other options but not sure if any of them fits to your needs but let me point to you the link:
