Hi

I was using Antares fine until I installed Win 8.1. I know, I know but the laptop was running slow so I hoped it would speed it up (optimistic). I'm assuming I need to turn off driver signing enforcement. I could find that under Win 8, but in 8.1, it doesn't seem to be in the same place. Oh, this is a 64bit win8.1

thanks

Barry

Do you mean Altair, or Antares?

If you search, you'll find threads on the forum about getting a Toppy connection with a Win 8 PC, e.g.

Windows 8
Loading Windows8 USB Driver for Toppy communication

Hopefully one of those will help you.

Julie

Yes, Antares (Antilles is a band I like!).

I tried doing what you suggest when I got this win8 machine, and it worked. Until I put 8.1 on yesterday. If I follow the instructions:
1- Move Mouse cursor to bottom right corner and the right control ribbon should appear
2- Click on “Settings”
3- “Change PC Settings” – at bottom of wide ribbon
4- “General”

Thing is...there is no "General" and I can't find the setting that I need.

Sorry then, I can't help. I've been avoiding Windows 8 like the plague!

Looking at/following the "Windows 8" link Juwlz posted, it appears that you are trying to get into "Advanced Startup" on windows 8.1

Googling for "advanced startup windows 8.1" indicates that you can get into this mode by pressing F8 as the system boots (before it starts windows). When you are in this mode, you can select the "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement"

Suggest you give it a go (I can't test it as I'm still on XP); if you get stuck, try googling for the general method of what you are trying to do (rather than making the search toppy specific).

If Geoff's F8 boot-up doesn't play ball, you could try this modified route:

5- "Update and recovery"
6- "Recovery"
7- "Advanced start-up" | Restart-now
7.1- "Troubleshoot"
7.2- "Advanced Options"
8- "Start-up Settings" | Restart [reboots]
9- [F7] or '7' : "Disable driver signature enforcement"

I couldn't get any of the above options to work but the following slightly modified method did work and I finally got the driver installed!

1- Move Mouse cursor to bottom right corner and the right control ribbon should appear
2- Click on “Settings”
3- Then SHIFT + Power
4- "Advanced start-up" | Restart-now
4.1- "Troubleshoot"
4.2- "Advanced Options"
5- "Start-up Settings" | Restart [reboots]
6- [F7] or '7' : "Disable driver signature enforcement"

None of the above would work for me, so I followed the instructions on the MS Support site. (Edit: Just realized that Top Tapper's instructions are pretty much the same).

Go to the Charms and select the following in sequence

Settings,
Change PC Settings,
Update and Recovery,
Recovery,
Advanced Startup (select restart now),
Troubleshoot,
Advanced Options,
Startup Settings,
Restart.
and on restart press F7.

This will switch off the driver signature requirement, and Z4T will install (Presumably, you can also manually install the driver in this mode).

You can then restart the computer to reactive the driver signing requirement, and Antares can be installed and will run.
