    Smart Card Reader driver problem

    So, I ended up here because I didn't know what else to do. I have a problem with my Smart Card Reader(ID-Card). Windows doesn't let me install drivers for it manually, neither did it install them automatically. It all happened after updating Windows to the Anniversary Update. I tried to reinstall drivers, "Repair My Computer" with Windows disk(which didn't work for some reason) and used USB 2.0 and 3.0 to test whether it's the port problem. Also, manual installation gave me an error: "This operation requires an interactive window station."
    Can anyone here help me? I need to use smart card reader every day, to be honest.

    Are you sure you've got the right driver? Have you checked the manufacturers website yet? If there are no suitable drives you might want to try compatibility mode.

    I tried to install them in Safe Mode aswell and yes, I downloaded the drivers from the manufacturer's website.

    I'm not talking about safe mode, I'm talking about compatibility mode to emulate an older Windows environment (e.g. Windows 7). Have you tried that? In case you don't know where: Right click on the .exe > properties > compatibility.
