 How to I fix this? According to Google no one has encountered this problem yet.

  • I think you will find several similar threads here. Look for them.

    Don't believe everything you get from Google. Really...!

    The search tool couldn't find anything remotely similar to my problem. If you have the answer it's more productive you loose your time by telling me the solution, other than telling me to search for my self.

    I typed in Windows 8 into the search box and it returned a few threads of people who are having problems.

    If you have examined those threads and are not satisfied with the responses from TI you should say something like:

    "I have examined other threads on Windows 8 and none of them have provided a resolution.".

    Many people do not take the time to read the other threads or use the search function. Apparently you appear to have done so -- but just did not mention it.

    If people have a problem they should provide the relevant information so that responders can save their time as well as the OP's..

    NB: You can put quotes around "Windows 8" so that it only returns relevant threads.

    In future I will try not to respond to your threads so that you are not distressed.

    There is only 2 (two) threads of people with this problem, one of them abandoned the thread and didn't got a solution and the other one is my self. If you type anything in the search bar it will show a great amount of people with problems (yay, TI), but none of those are similar to MY problem.

    Windows 8 normally requires drivers to be digitally signed, the ICDI drivers are not signed to install anyway you can do this:

    1 - open a command shell ( windowskey + r, type 'cmd.exe', enter )
    2 - type the following commands

    bcdedit -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
    bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON
    shutdown /r

    3 - wait for reboot, install drivers (it should work now)
    4 - open a command shell ( windowskey + r, type 'cmd.exe', enter )
    5 - type the following commands:

    bcdedit -set loadoptions ENABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
    bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING OFF
    shutdown /r

    6 - wait for reboot and you should be ready to go
  • In reply to Luke Ordelmans:

    It worked perfectly for me, thank you.

  • In reply to Luke Ordelmans:

    This worked for me as well! Thank you so much :)

    Could just add that you might need to run cmd as administrator or you might be denied to use the bcdedit command.

  • Just an FYI, there s an easier way to fix this. WIndows 8 doesn't allow unsigned drivers to be installed.

    1. Go to settings (bring mouse to top right corner)

    2. Change PC settings (at the bottom)

    3. Advance start up (all the way at the bottom)

    4. Restart now

    5. When computer reboots, just hit 7 for disable unsigned dirvers

    and voila! You may now install unsigned drivers until you restart or shut down your computer

  • In reply to Luke Ordelmans:

    When I tried to execute this command:

    bcdedit -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

    I got this message:

    The boot configuration data store could not be opened.
    Access is denied.

    I am running Windows 8.1

    I am running Windows 8.1 and I don't see Advanced start up in Change PC setting.  Am I missing something?
