Error installing FSCSPr 13.10

Installing fscspr 13.10 on exported msi package to win7 laptop.

I get an error "Windows requires a digitally signed driver".


How do I fix this?

    never seen that before. FS-drivers have been signed since ages. My wild guess: Windows 7 is missing the latest CA updates to verify the signature or the MSI is broken (try tor repeat import/export from a new download).

    The "fsdfw.sys" file in question (or at least the copy found on my office computer) has not one, but two digital signatures:

    - one issued by F-Secure Corp., counter-signed by Globalsign CA and

    - another issued by Microsoft Windows 3rd Party HW Compatibility Publisher, counter-signed by Microsoft Root CA.


    There is likely some problem with the OS on the customer's particular endpoint computer, I think Microsoft Update should be ran on it.
