Okay no issues,
If its a exe file then right click on EXE and select option run as administrator it will get installed (before that open properties of exe and select unblock option if it is there)

or

open a command prompt (right click on CMD.EXE and select option run as administrator) type devmgmt.msc to open device manager

now install the driver for the device.


Good Luck!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi,

If even that doesn't help..

Try this..

Press shift and right click on the driver file and you will get another option as
"Run as different User"

See if that helps :)
