When Installing SoundTap I receive the following error message "Unable to install Driver."

For XP:

Check that your local security policy settings are set to warn about unsigned drivers rather than block. To do this follow this process:

  1. Click Start
  2. Right click on My Computer
  3. Click Properties
  4. Select the Hardware tab
  5. Click the Driver Signing button
  6. You will now have three choices, Ignore, Warn, Block
  7. Select Warn
  8. Restart your computer
  9. Install SoundTap

For Windows 7:

You need to turn off device driver signing in Windows 7 completely. Please do the following:

  1. Hit the Win+R keys together to open the run dialog
  2. Type gpedit.msc to open the local groups policy editor
  3. Click the arrow next to Administrative Templates under User Configuration to expand the list
  4. Click the arrow next to System to expand the list
  5. Select the Driver Installation folder
  6. In the Driver Installation window, double click on Code Signing for Device Drivers
  7. Select the Enabled radio button in the window that appears
  8. In the underlying Options, select Ignore from the dropdown list
  9. This disables drivers signing in Windows 7, and now you can install unsigned drivers in Windows 7
  10. Click Apply
  11. Click OK
  12. Restart your computer
  13. Install SoundTap
