Hi,

 

Thank you for contacting Intel community.

 

That might be due to issue with USB Blaster. Kindly follow the workaround in KDB below (it is also applicable for USB Blaster):

Hello,

Can you provide a similar link for USB-Blaster? It has the same expiration issue.

Thank you,

Thanks, BRRRRT,

I will try it.

After I posted my question I was able to install the driver in  a special boot mode without signature check:
