Cannot install signed usb serial driver (Windows 10)


I recently picked up 3 Seeeduino Xiaos with the intention of using them with Arduino IDE. I am unable to install the driver for them in Windows 10 because it says they are unsigned. I have already tried ignoring code signing for device drivers and still no go. I really want to use these but I can’t unless I get this sorted.

can you share the screenshot of the error window?

Well. I actually figured it out. I had originally seen two different ways to configure how “ignore” that a driver wasn’t signed and to install it anyway in windows 10, but just found a third way by holding shift while clicking restart and making the change that way. It worked, driver installed and now I’m onto my next challenge, interface them with nRF24L01+ so I can make a simple switch trigger LED toggle between the two.
