Silverlink doesn't install correctly
« on: June 16, 2012, 05:08:37 am »
I'm not sure whether I'm right in this forum or not, but here's my problem:

A few weeks ago I installed a new sound card for my Windows 7 64-bit computer and suddenly the graph link didn't work anymore. I looked into the device manager and it says the driver can't be verified to be signed or something. I never had this problem before.
Every time I plug in the cable, after it tried to install software and says it failed. Reinstalling/updating driver leads always to the same problem, it says the driver is the newest version.
Booting without driver signature is possible and it shows up the device is working correctly, but TIConnect is acting up and doesn't find the device.

I'm using TIConnect with a TI 83+.

Well, there are only 2 possible solutions that I can think of-

1) Use TiLP.

2) Buy a different calculator, computer, and cable. :P

Maybe see if there's a new update of Ti-connect?

Very funny... It worked perfectly with the same components before.

Maybe see if there's a new update of Ti-connect?
Last one is two years old, I already used the newest one.


I try TiLP first

Edit: Same problem - it is the driver for the cable I think

ticonnect and tilp don't use the same drivers for cables.

Good to know. So I deleted all the drivers and reinstalled TiLP, but that didn't help.
Is there a way to manually install the driver?

I was once in your shoes, that's why I wrote a tutorial on TI-Connect.

Try it out and see if it helps.

You can build a statue out of either 1'x1' blocks or 12'x12' blocks. The 1'x1' blocks will take a lot longer, but the final product is worth it.

I followed all the steps in your tutorial exactly as they are written, it helped nothing. I tried it again, this time installing TI-connect from the CD, same.
When I have TIconnect ready and I plug in the cable, Windows tries to install a driver and can't find one. The TiLP driver doesn't work either, because it isn't signed.
