This method keeps Windows in Test Mode for the driver to work. (I have been running my copy of Windows 10 in Test Mode since the day I installed it.) If you are on an older version of Windows, you should be able to use the DSEO method to turn test mode off after you have signed the driver yourself (see the official installation instructions for details).
- Download the latest version of the driver from povohat's site.
- Open a command prompt with administrator privileges, and type:
Bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING ON
(if the operation failed, you may need to go to your BIOS settings
and turn secure boot off, then do step 2 again. Note that if you
are dual booting linux, GRUB has overwritten the MBR that BCDEdit
tries to access, and I don't know how to get around that.)
- Verify that the corner of your desktop shows "Test Mode"
- Open device manager
- Under "mice and other pointing devices", right click your mouse device (eg: "HID-compliant mouse")
- Select update driver software
- Browse my computer for driver software
- Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer
- Have disk
- Locate moufiltr.inf
- Select HID Mouse (moufiltr) and press next
- Continue past any warnings about unsigned drivers and/or compatibility
- The OS may prompt you to reboot, and you should do so if required
If you got a Code 10 or Code 45 error message upon installing the driver, that means b8 mysteriously dislikes your computer. If you unplug your mouse and connect it to a different USB port, you should be back on the normal Windows mouse driver. Download b7 here and start again from device manager as above with the b7 file instead (note that download zip includes a version of the GUI that works with b7, but not b8). If you're still having problems, let me know!
