Driver update for Windows Vista x64 (64-bit)
Windows Vista x64 requires that all the drivers have the digital signature. If any driver does not have a digital signature, Windows Vista x64 is not loaded until the driver is removed.
How do I know which protection version is installed for the application I use?
Of course, the old protection driver versions without Windows Vista support did not have the digital signature. Therefore, launching the old protection versions for Windows Vista x64 should be performed as follows.
- Launch the protected application with the rights of administrator.
- Allow driver installation
- Reject reboot (otherwise the OS will not load in Normal mode)
- Update drivers
- Reboot the OS.
