Drivers for Windows
If you already installed the PX4 Toolchain there should be no need to install the drivers separately.
If you are using Windows 8, the drivers will not install because they are unsigned. You need to force Windows 8 to install unsigned drivers as per the following instructions:
You have to restart Windows and go to the “Advanced Startup Options”. Press Win+R and execute the following command:
shutdown.exe /r /o
- When the “Choose an option” screen appears, select “Troubleshoot”.
- Select “Advanced options” in the “Troubleshoot” screen.
- Select “Startup Settings”.
- Press the “Restart” button.
Windows will now restart and show the “Startup Settings” screen. Press 7 to select “Disable driver signature enforcement”.
When Windows is finished booting up, install the drivers in the usual way (e.g. using the Device Manager). Windows will still alert you if you try to install a driver that is not signed, but you can choose the “Install this driver software anyway” option.
Windows will automatically re-enable the driver signature enforcement the next time you restart your system.
