    Synaptics driver


    Hi, can you help me to find a signed GENERIC Synaptics driver for Windows 8 32-bit - not released by an OEM but released by Synaptics itself. The latest one v17.0.19 is not properly signed so I am looking for another one.
    Thanks!

    Thanks Brink I have found a bit newer driver 16.3.15.1, which you posted in this thread Touchpad Edge Swipes - Enable or Disable in Windows 8. Thanks for your help!

    If you mean the one from the post below, then it's the 17.0.19 version now.

    What brand is your touchpad?

    If Synaptics, then install the latest 16.3.15.1 driver at the link below to see if that may help. OEMs rarely have the latest driver versions available at their site.

    Hope this helps,

    This is what I mean. The latest version 17.0.19 is not signed and windows refuses to install it but the version 16.3.15.1 is signed and there is no problems with it.

    Back when I posted that, 16.3.15.1 was the latest version, but that is the same link for the latest 17.0.19 version now.

    I know I meant that you posted that there is a newer version at that time, which was 16.3.15.1. I didn't mean the link exactly.However the v17.0.19 is not signed and Windows refuses to install it.
