    Default *****msd view & windows 8*****

    As of right now this is the temporary fix as the engineering team starts looking into getting the drivers signed by Microsoft.

    Download and install the MSD View software off of our website-

    On the desktop (not in metro) click on-

    Settings (Side bar)=> Change PC Settings=> General=> Advanced Start Up=> Restart Now.

    When prompted with "Choose an option,"

    Choose Troubleshoot=> Advanced options=> Startup settings=> Restart.

    When prompted with "Startup Settings,"

    Press the number 7 key (Disable driver signature enforcement).

    Now in the desktop (not metro),
    click on settings (Side bar)=> Control Panel=> System and Security=> Device Manager.

    Plug the Power Grid in via the USB cable.

    MSD Virtual Com Port should populate under "Other Devices."

    Double click on MSD Virtual Com Port=> Update Driver=> Search automatically for updated driver software.

    When prompted by windows security,

    click on Install this driver software anyway=> Close.

    Open MSD View and verify that the Power Grid is connected.

    not really the grid have to remember that windows 8 and 8.1 has effected everybody...not just msd .

    Go into

    Change PC Settings / Update and Recovery / Recovery / Advanced Startup / Restart now

    Troubleshoot / Advanced Options / Startup Settings / Restart

    Then do option 7) Disable driver signature enforcement

    When it restarts go into device manager with MSD attached and find MSD Virtual com port and update driver/ browse to Program files/MSD View/MSD View and update. It should bring up box to let you allow driver.

    If you have drive encryption enabled then turn it off and let it decrypt drive before doing the above. It is located in Change PC settings/PC and Devices/PC info

    Works fine. Let me know if it works for you. This is on a Dell Tablet that came with 8.1.

    Didn't think and upgraded to Windows 10. Will the software work using the same steps as the windows 8 procedure or had it not been tested yet?
