This first part only happens to some..... so skip it if it does not apply
My first problem with this started when downloading it. it apparently didn't recognize the .inf driver file so it associated it with notepad and gave it a .txt extension. of course you normally cant see it because know extensions are hidden. anyways,, after you fix that that, how to get it to run? the old tricks dont work, and I want a permanent one...so I read this:
The steps to install a unsigned driver on windows 8 is as follows.
1. From windows 8 desktop, put the mouse in the corner so you can hit settings, then hit Change PC Settings at the very bottom again and it will take you to the advanced setup screen, then choose General –> Under “Advanced Startup” –> Restart now.
Now the system will restart and might take some minutes to show up the boot menu. Wait for It patiently.
After some time you will be prompted with a menu with following options.
3. Turn off
Then the following menu appears.
Refresh your PC
Reset your PC
Choose Advanced Options
Then the following menu appears
System Image Recovery
Windows Startup settings
Choose Windows Startup Settings, then Click Restart.
Now the computer will restart and the boot menu appears. Choose “Disable Driver signature Enforcement” from the menu. Now windows will start and you can do the installation of the driver that is not signed. Smile.
This seems to be a permanent fix, unlike the F8 fix in windows 7.
