You may receive the warning message "Windows requires a digitally signed driver" during installation on Windows* 7 and Windows* Server 2008 R2 systems.
The VTune Amplifier hardware event-based sampling drivers (sepdrv.sys and vtss.sys) in version 2016 Update 1 are now signed with digital SHA-2 certificate key for compliance with Windows 10 requirements. To install the drivers on Windows* 7 and Windows* Server 2008 R2 operating systems, you must add functionality for the SHA-2 hashing algorithm to the systems by applying Microsoft Security update 3033929: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/3033929
Hi, I still cannot get the driver to load on a windows7 i7 computer. Here is what I've tried (in order, and trying to reinstall the driver using command line after each step)
updating everything I can se in windows update
manually installing the above mentioned security patch
reinstalling vtune (the install does not give any error)
I still get the error regarding the driver not properly signed.
Are there any other known pitfalls?
No. Did you reboot after applying patches?
