When trying to install MMB0 with ADS8028EVM in windows 8, the installer doesn't complain, but when I am looking in device manager I see that there is an unknown device on USB fabric, VID 0x0451, PID 0x9001, REV 0x0000.
When trying to install, I did the following sequence:
- install adcpro-launcher-1.0.1.exe
- from ADCPro launcher I installed ADCPro and the ADS8028 plugin
Note: I ran the installation of adcpro-launcher-1.0.1.exe as admin. For the others, since they were installed from ADCPro launcher, I don't know the credentials. But I am admin on the machine I used.
Started ADCPro, but after seeing that firmware couldn't be loaded, I checked the USB driver and saw the problem above mentioned.
After looking more closely in drivers locations:
1) C:\Program Files\ADCPro\drivers\driver\usbstyx.inf
2) C:\Program Files (x86)\ADCPro\pdk_lib\libmmb0\Styx\usbstyx_drivers\usbstyx.inf
I saw that the inf files are identical. By looking in amd64 directory (I have 64 bit system) and comparing binary files libusb0.sys I saw that they slightly differ.
Another observation I could make is that the drivers are not signed and this is making installation on windows vista, 7 and 8 difficult because we need to disable sign enforcement (used dseo13b.exe).
I tried to manually install the driver by disabling windows driver signature at startup and also dseo13b.exe, but I couldn't make it work.
Could you provide me with a driver that is confirmed to be working in windows 7 and a manual installation procedure that works? I am presently stuck with my project.
