SLICE USB Drivers and Windows 8
32 bit and 64 bit Windows 8 require hardware drivers to be digitally signed. DTS drivers prior to June 2013 were not digitally signed. We recommend you download latest version of software to get the signed drivers. If you want to install unsigned drivers on Windows 8, you need to follow this procedure:
To load an unsigned driver, Windows 8 has to be booted into a special mode.
- Close programs and disconnect any SLICE hardware from the computer.
- Open Settings (move cursor to bottom right of screen and click Settings)
- Click 'Change PC Settings' (bottom right of pop-out sidebar)
- Click 'General' and then 'Restart now' (under Advanced startup at bottom)
- Wait a while as system begins reboot process
- Click 'Troubleshoot' and 'Windows Startup Settings'
- System restarts (this process replaces the Windows 7 F8 key)
- On restart select 'Disable driver signature enforcement' and wait for bootup to complete
- Plug in SLICE to USB and power up SLICE
- Manually point the driver install to C:\DTS\SLICEWare**\drivers
- Note there separate drivers for SLICE NANO and SLICE PRO. Plug in the other hardware and point to the respective SLICEWare\drivers folder
- SLICE MICRO/NANO – SLICEWare 1.05 or 1.06
- SLICE PRO – SLICEWare 1.08
- Restart Windows to take out of the disable driver mode, and all should be working.
There is a CMD line string that should achieve the same reboot, but have not tried it: shutdown -o -r -t 0
