When Installing SoundTap I receive the following error message "Unable to install Driver."
Check that your local security policy settings are set to warn about unsigned drivers rather than block. To do this follow this process:
- Click Start
- Right click on My Computer
- Click properties
- Select the hardware tab
- Click the Driver Signing button
You will now have three choices, Ignore, Warn, Block.
- Select warn.
Restart your computer and install SoundTap.
For Windows 7:
If you want to turn off device driver signing in Windows 7 completely, do the following.
Hit the Win+R keys together to open the run dialog. Type gpedit.msc to open the local groups policy editor.
Expand ‘Administrative Templates’ (it’s under ‘User Configuration’). Expand ‘System’. Click ‘Driver Installation’.
In the right panel, double click on ‘Code Signing for Device Drivers’
Choose ‘Enabled’ in the window that appears. In the underlying options, choose ‘Ignore’. This disables drivers signing in Windows 7, and now you can install unsigned drivers in Windows 7.
Click Apply, OK. Restart your computer and install SoundTap
