Topic: DUE and windows problems (Read 3 times) previous topic - next topic


I installed Windows 8 on my desktop and then attempted to install the Arduino Due driver.

Windows 8 refuses to accept the Arduino USB driver because it is "unsigned". The message returned is: "The third party INF does not contain digital signature information".

Previous renditions of Windows allowed you to override the "unsigned" warning and continue, Windows 8 will not allow installation of a driver without the proper digital signature.

Looks like a show-stopper for Windows 8 users.

Hey razer93, you sketch works perfectly in my laptop but with Windows 7 x64 SP1. Like you, I am using the native USB port.
I wanted to share a couple of things that happened during the first time I connected DUE to my laptop:

1. Like lynchzilla, I got the red warning about the signature but Windows allowed me to override it.
2. Windows recognized an 'Arduino Due X' driver but I couldn't make anything work! So I re-booted my laptop and the driver was gone; then, I re-installed the driver making Windows browse the arduino-1.5-windows folder and a 'bossac' driver showed up. Finally (and automatically), after few minutes, the Arduino Due driver (ver. 5.1.2600.0) took over again.


my desktop cannot recognise arduino as "BOSSAC" what's the problem? :(
