The steps followed were as follows:
- Downloaded the driver from this site
- Plugged in the Arnova G2 via USB. Windows 8 did not prompt to install any drivers
- Looked in Control Panel and the Arnova G2 is listed with "Drivers for this device are not installed"
- Went into the device's properties and selected "Update driver"
- Pointed Windows 8 to the location where the downloaded extracted files are.
Then Windows reports as follows:
"Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device. Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it. 'Android Composite ADB Interface' the hash for this file is not present in the specified catalogue file. The file is probably corrupt or been tampered with."
Anyone any ideas what to do next?
OK I managed to find a solution to this issue at http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?p=1039087472
The instructions below taken from there worked for me to get the drivers installed.
How to turn off these driver verification checks?
In order to do this, you must enter the following commands in command prompt (run as administrator)
bcdedit -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON
then reboot (Windows 8 starts in TEST mode).
Please keep in mind that this MAKES YOU VULNERABLE to malicious drivers, packages, blah, blah, blah.
Once you've installed the drivers you've been having trouble with, you can turn it off with these commands using the same process.
bcdedit -set loadoptions ENABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING OFF
Somehow I'm unable to follow these steps that you shared regarding the command prompts codes so I googled for another ways and found that I'm able to disabled the driver signature verification for Windows 8.1 via these methods. Just wanna share this in case anyone else having the same problem as mine
