Install Unsigned Drivers on Windows 7 & Vista with Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider

Every time when we try to install any hardware drivers which are not signed by microsoft, Windows shows a warning of Unsigned driver dialog box. The reason of showing warning message is to protect the stability of your Windows operating system as such drivers are not passed in Microsoft windows driver compatibility test.
In Window XP you can still install unsigned drivers but in Windows Vista SP 1 and Windows 7 Microsoft has introduced very restricted module of driver signature enforcement which doesn’t allow us to install any incompatible unsigned drivers.
If you want to bypass or disable Unsigned Driver warning message then Here is small freeware utility Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider which allows you to install and load unsigned drivers dynamically on your Windows 7 and Vista.

Supported Operating System
1. Windows Vista 32-bit & 64 bit
2. Windows 7 32-bit & 64-bit
Download Drive Signature Enforcement Overrider 1.3b
Please Note: User Account Control (UAC) must be disabled in-order to use this tool.

I could not install the driver for pd1100 webcam on my windows XP machine. It say it is not licences with microsoft. What can I do? How can I install it?


Hiya Sivamathy,

1. Do not connect the webcam to your computer before installing the drivers. If you accidentally begin installation with the webcam connected, the Found New Hardware Wizard dialog box appears. Click the Cancel button.
2. Insert the disk. If you are definitely having problems with the drivers on that disk, then download this updated driver pack. It is a zip file you must unpack to a folder.

3. Click the names of the drivers and applications you want to install on your computer.
4. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the installation. You may be asked, after an application is installed, if you want to restart you computer. Do not restart your computer until all the drivers and applications are installed.
5. Connect the webcam's USB cable to an available USB port on your computer and wait for Windows to detect the device.
6. When the Found New Hardware Wizard dialog box appears, select Install the software automatically (Recommended), and then click the Next button.
7. When a Microsoft warning dialog box appears, ignore the message and click the Continue Anyway button.
8.Installation will complete.
9. Check the image in the Video preview pane of the Vibra Webcam Camera Configuration dialog box. If it flickers or displays a series of dark bands, click the Cancel Flicker button.
10. Click the Finish botton, and reboot if necessary.
When you boot up, you can check the Device Manager (Control Panel>System>DeviceManager). Click the plus(+) sign next to the Imaging Device icon. The entry "Vibra Webcam" should appear.

Done!
Hope this helps :)

This driver is blocked due to compatibility isssues


What Windows version are you running? it will really help us a lot if you could provide more details;

Anyway more often this happens when your PC is running on XP(Pro/Home)

If it is you can try the following,;

If your computer is running on Windows XP, normally driver signing is enabled and it will prompt you that an unsigned driver is being installed it will ask you whether you want to install it or not but there are some cases that on the driver signing option that its set to Block unsigned drivers.

To find out which is the current sttings you can go to Control Panel then Look for System
Under the System Properties got the Hardware tab and look for Sriver Signing, on the Driver Signing Options make sure its either set to Ignore or Warn(choose warn so that you are properly noticed if the driver is signed or approved by Windows or Not.

Note: some unsigned drivers may cause your computer to go on bluescreen if its really not compatible or better check 1st on the device's manual if it really is compatible with your system.

Window Vista Problem


Using the OPTIONS menu of IE, select SECURITY. Scroll through and find the check boxes for downloading unsigned and expired ActiveX code. Remember what the current setting is, then uncheck the setting to temporarily allow expired or unsigned ActiveX programs to download.

Try your Veo Observer again, download the ActiveX and when you are sure it is working, go back to IE OPTIONS and change your ActiveX options back to their previous settings, which was to NOT allow expired or unsigned ActiveX code to download..
