Ive already tried installing the editor again with/without antivirus & firewall enabled but no succes.
Also I tried windows 7 compatibility mode but no luck.
It worked ok up untill the W10 1903 update so i am expecting it to work in windows 10.

I have the same problem but what I have found out it's the Windows 7 OS that is the problem since this message occurs:

Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)

I've searched both Microsoft and the Internet for a solution but now it's late here and I'm getting tired so if anyone out there could help me how to disable the 'digital signature' in Win 7 it would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I just want to play my THR 10X and edit the sound from my axe. :music-guitarred:

Hi Guys . . . .

The "Unsigned Driver" feature is a pain, especially when you KNOW that a certain drive should or will work,

but Windows disagrees and won't allow it . . . .

This Post details my own experience with this problem: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=12706#p75520

I use Win10 Pro 64, but possibly it will work with earlier Windows? -

I can't be sure, but it's got to be worth a try?

Look further down the post . . . . . There is a way to start windows such that the "unsigned driver" problem

can be walked around . . . .

It worked for me in a rather bizarre circumstance . . . . :o

Perhaps it will work for you :pray:

DO read the footnote though . . . . Windows updates frequently undo this sort of jerry-rigging, but mostly

you just need to re-do it after the update

Good morning and thanks for your contribution.

After sleeping I got some power back and finally managed to find a solution (for Windows 7):

Restart your PC and press F8 before the Windows log on screen appears. Then scroll down to "disable digital signature" (or something like that, can't remember the exact words), press Enter and let Windows start. It should work now. It did for me.
