Windows Server 2012 drivers workaround for irdroid usb ir transceiver

Irdroid USB IR Transceiver v1.0

We got a nice email from a customer from the Irdroid community saying that the Irdroid USB Infrared Transceiver works without any drivers on Windows 10. He tested Also with Windows Server 2012 and there was a driver issue , using the drivers we provide from the download section. The Issue with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 is that signed USB ACM drivers are needed. Windows Server 2012 requires that all drivers need to be signed, The USB Infrared Transceiver can work with Windows 8 but the workaround is that you need to turn off the signed driver requirement.

You can deactivate the forcing of signed drivers by using following Settings. Open a Command Prompt (cmd) as Administrator and type in following two commands. bcdedit -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON With bcdedit you´re configurating the bootmenu of windows, so be careful. If something goes wrong you´ll need a windows dvd to repair the bootmanager. After a restart you can install the driver normally. You just have to confirm to install the unsigned driver, just like in older versions of Windows.
