    Sorry if this is a common one, it is a strage issue since I have had this running on this machine before.

    I am using the v3 drivers (though have also tried older versions)

    Win 7 SP1

    The computer complains that the drivers are unsigned and will not allow the drivers to be used, even if I select "install anyway" during installation when running the installer under admin.

    I have no "US 16x08 Mixing driver" drivers showing any more either.

    I have tried turning off driver signing on windows, strangely I have unsigned DMX drivers from Chromatec that have installed without issue.

    Whenever I uninstall the driver, windows automatically re-installs the faulty driver, even if I select "delete driver files from disk" during uninstall.

    I have tried every method I know to manually install the drivers however this is difficult as the drivers are wrapped in a .exe installer, so the only place to get them is from the system32 folder (I also can't manually delete the files from this folder even if I take ownership of them)

    My best thought is that windows has somehow managed to get a corrupt file as a driver, and just keeps reinstalling it.

    I was hoping someone may have had a similar experience and could give me some options.

    Cheers!

    The issue was that I had missed a couple of windows updates, a fully updated windows will accept the drivers.

    Also the V3 drivers are buggy, working with 2.12 no problems
