Trying to upgrade a HP with an N 1030 under Win 7 Pro from v188.8.131.52 to current v15.8.0
When I run the upgrade file [either full 83.9M + or drivers only] it tells me it can't upgrade from that version and I need to manually uninstall the drivers.
1) going into control panel and uninstalling from there. It successfully uninstalls, but the new driver file still refuses to upgrade.
Am I missing something? Is there a command line switch to force the install?
