The Software You Are Installing Has Not Passed Windows Logo Testing

 

When I insert drivers into a Windows system and attempt to install the driver, it gives me a pop-up stating "The software you are installing for this hardware has not passed Windows Logo testing to verify its compatibility with Windows ." What does this mean?

 

The message above is displayed because the driver you are using with your device is not Windows driver signed.

 

For Microsoft Windows operating systems, Microsoft promotes driver signing for designated device classes.

 

Windows 2000 and later versions of the operating system perform signature detection whenever an INF file is used to install hardware from a designated device class.

 

Please click Continue Anyway to complete the installation of the software.

 

If you have further difficulty installing drivers, we recommend the following:

 

  • Click Start, Control Panel, System, and Hardware.
  • Click Driver Signing.

 

  • Check the box next to Warn instead of Block and click OK.

 

Next, plug the Interface in and follow the prompts on screen for the Found New Hardware Wizard.

 

Now, this message should come up, you should select Continue Anyway.
