Windows found driver ... but encountered an error

  1. #11


    I have another computer with XP on it. The Hantek 'scope works fine on it, but it is not convenient to use it on that machine.

    The problem is either Hantek's software or (yet another) problem with Windows 8.1.


    Edit:

    I think I've fixed it.

    After uninstalling and reinstalling again, I plugged the unit in, went to Device Manager and looked for it. Found it in "Other devices" with a yellow exclamation sign. Looked at its Properties / Update Driver and told it where the driver was in the Hantek folder.

    That's got it working.

    Considering the accolades I've seen regarding Windows 8.1, that is astonishing. I would have expected it to have found the file itself.

    I would have liked to find out why, exactly why, I experience this problem. I suspect that it is a shortcoming in both Microsoft's and Hantek's software.

    However, since I am not likely to ever find out, I will mark this thread as solved. At least I now have one route to try if (when) it happens again.

    Good you fixed the issue. Very rarely do I see issues like this, but sometimes I do.

    Makes me wonder how Microsoft has fixed issues in Windows 10. It will be cool to see how it goes.

    Cheers
