Win7. which of d folder is meant for windows 10? cos when I try 2 install USB vcomm diver on my windows 10,I tried d 3 folders bt I got d same error msg...The following hardware was not installed: an error occurred during the installation of d device. the 3rd party INF doesn't contain digital signature information.

    1. Unfortunately, the files are not compatible with Windows 10. You acn use the file for Windows 7 on Windows 8. It is working fine but it is preferable to use Windows 7.

      No course for alarm yet if ypu don't have windows seven. Am working on a new file for windows 10. Will publish it in few days time when am through with it.
