The new versions are server authenticated and do not require any dongles

To upgrade from earlier version, YOU MUST UNINSTALL the previous version completely before installing the new version. Failure to do so will create a conflict between drivers.

Please also note that there are now two different installers for WIN7 and WIN10.
Select the proper one for your operating system. Failure to do so may install wrong drivers in your system.

Digital Signature Requirement must be TURNED OFF during first time installation. See below for instructions

How to install PCquirerX on win 7/10, 64 bit system to use with X16 series hardware.
“Digital Signature Requirement” must be DISABLED during bootup before the driver installation.
Disable the Digital Signature Requirement win 7
Disable the Digital Signature Requirement win 10

Before running the PCquirerX installer,you must follow the instructions above during a reboot.

After you have done this step, then install the driver and plug the system in a USB port.
If for some reason the drivers were not recognized by the operating system, with the Driver Signature verification Disabled, please follow the steps below to force the drivers installation:
1. Open control panel, Select System, then Device manager
2. Open the Universal Serial Bus Controllers tab ( at the very bottom)
3. You may find device with either “unrecognized Device” or “X16 Device” with yellow “?” next to it ( this may be also be in other place in the device manager than in the Universal Serial Bus Controllers tab)
4. Left click on it , select Update Drivers
5. Browse my computer for driver software
6. In the next window, navigate to WINDOWS->INF directory or where the PCquirerX is installed (under program files ->SciconRD folder) has been installed. Select the folder and continue.
7. The drivers should get installed.

For the 64 bit systems, if you ever reboot the system, this process may need to be repeated. However, in the normal conditions, if the system goes to sleep, then you do not need to repeat this process.
