    Need to manually install a driver but getting an error


    I'm trying to get a manually installed device driver to work under Win 10 Pro 64-bit, but I have a problem.

    I copy the driver to c:\windows\system32\drivers (have also tried just c:\windows\system32 ) but on trying to start it manually from the command prompt with administrator level privileges (using sc start drivername) I get:

    [SC]StartService: OpenService FAILED 1060:

    "the specified service does not exist as an installed service"



    I should say that I've done this before under Windows 7 Pro 64-bit without any problems. The driver is signed so should also work under Win 10.

    Any ideas please?

    Thanks

    Are you trying to install the driver for which device, could you pass the model of the device you want to install?

    It's for an EPROM programmer that isn't officially supported under 64-bit Windows (7, 8 or 10). However a driver exists which was created just for 64-bit Windows which I've had working under Win 7 Pro 64-bit. The programmer is a Galep-4 and it connects to the PC using a parallel cable (therefore the PC also has in it a Startech PCI card with a parallel port which has its own drivers - no faults reported with that).

    The driver does need to be installed manually as outlined in my first post.

    Thanks

    Is it a signed driver or windows wont accept it? Is there an .inf file with it if so if you right click on it you get an install optoin

    It is signed but there's no inf file. It installs just fine (by copying it to c:\windows\system32\drivers) under Win 7 Pro 64-bit but not Win 10 Pro 64-bit.

    Yes, that's the original main install package but it only contains a 32-bit driver. The new, signed 64-bit driver (produced by a third party) is what I use just fine under Win 7 but it's not installing under Win 10.

    Here's the page with the newly signed 64-bit driver and installation info:

    I've made a bit of progress with this, I first had to type:

    sc create glpntdrv type= kernel binPath=c:\windows\system32\drivers\glpntdrv.sys

    this worked and gave the message:

    [SC] CreateService SUCCESS

    I then typed:

    sc start glpntdrv

    but this gave the error:

    startservice failed with error 193

    any ideas how to fix that please?

    The missing 64-bit compilation of glpntdrv.sys driver is the
    one-and-only reason why galep32.exe won't run on 64 bit editions of Windows.
    This is a running and digitally signed release of
    64-bit glpntdrv.sys, with this installation instructions:

    - Install galep32 as usual (with administrative privileges) and start once.

    - Copy glpntdrv.sys to C:\windows\system32\drivers,
    using the 64-bit version of Windows explorer, with administrative privileges.
    (The 32-bit driver file should be at C:\windows\syswow64\drivers,
    this file is useless in a 64-bit Windows and can be deleted safely.)

    - Check for working driver using console window (cmd.exe), enter
    “sc start glpntdrv”. This should emit no error message,
    or possibly „Service already started“.

    - Start galep32.exe, it works now.
