Hello,

I am using an USBEE AX it contains as far as I know CY7C68013. I was forced to install Windows 10, but now I cannot use my beloved USBEE AX anymore.

I searched here for many hours, and tried to install several drivers for the FX2LP, but so far with no success. I need to say, I am a hardware guy and not too good with this soft or firmware stuff. I tried to download several cypress files and also modify them with the VID/PID but then, windows10 tells me the driver is not signed and does not install it. Please can somebody help me providing me a windows10 driver file or point me in the right direction? VID:PID is 08a9:0014

Thank you very much, for your help

Roland

Hello,

Modifying a signed driver INF file will cause the driver signature in the catalog file to be invalid.

Hence, the driver no longer has a valid signature to be installed in Windows.

The unsigned driver can still be installed by putting the PC into test mode or disabling the driver signature enforcement.  But, this is recommended only during the product development or testing phase. 

Please contact the product manufacturers for the proper driver as using the cyusb3 driver may not be useful for normal operation of the product even if the device is successfully bound to the device.

Thanks,

Yatheesh

Hello Yatheesh

thank you very much for your fast and helpfull answer. Unfortunately, the Company went out of business in 2015, so there is no support from this side. I will try and find out how to deactivate the signing of the .inf and how to force into testmode.

regards,

Roland
