Windows 8 CP Vita Drivers aren't installing =/

14 Replies 2,357 Views Created 20-04-2012

Even with the proper boot (for the unsigned driver, I don't remember the full name) the Vita type D drivers doesn't want to install under my Win 8 CP install =/.

 

Any suggestions ? (Other than "remove Win8" of course ^^)

Hard to say something other than "go with a yet released Windows version" :smileytongue: They are just not compatible.

From this topic, it seams they are =/...

And (from my point of view) this is not some driver for a complicated experiemental device, this is for transferring the data to the device via USB... I find hard to believe there is so mush difference between win7 et a beta of win8 that an usb driver will not work ^^"

The transfer on Win7 is already wacky sometimes, for you it's even like a beta driver with beta OS :smileywink: What exact error are you getting?

Yes, in fact it was the link I put on one of my previous post =/

It show that the driver is supposed to work under Win8, but in my case it doesn't change anything.

I think I will put a win7 install under VM just for the Vita tests of my apps. Pss Studio just works perfectly now, but I wanted to test some samples and my own app on the vita.

 

For now I'm trying to sign the driver with the WDK... but inf2cat doesn't want to create the certificate xP.

I'm cursed =D.

Re : Windows 8 CP Vita Drivers aren't installing =/

Very sorry about the double post, but since i've managed to install the driver I thought I should "update" the topic.

 

So after a windows update and a reboot, inf2cat created the catalog file for the driver, and it install with the warn "Unsigned driver blah blah".

 

Now it works like a charm, the demos are running well =D.

 

So if someone is as crazy as I am to keep a win8 CP as a main system, and if the "disable driver enforcement" mode doesn't work :

 

- Download Windows Driver Kit (8.0 since it's the one for ... win 8 ^^, and it come with Visual Studio 2011)

- Install it

- Open a notepad as Admin and edit your vita_usbser.inf (located at C:\Program Files (x86)\SCE\Pss\tools\vita\driver\)

- Just before [Manufacturer] add: CatalogFile = MyCatalogFile.cat.

(Replace MyCatalogFile.cat by anything you wish, just keep the .cat at the end)

- Save the file.

- Open a Command Prompt as Admin.

- Go to the install path (default one : C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kit\8.0\bin\x86\)

(x86 in all case, in fact i'm under a x64 Windows)

- type Inf2Cat /drv:"C:\Program Files (x86)\SCE\Pss\tools\vita\driver" /os:8_X64.

(Maybe you should replace 8_X64 by 8_X86 if you're under a x86 windows)

- If all goes right you should have :Capture2.PNG

 

- Plug your vita, and open the PSS Dev Assistant.

- Go into the device manager under windows, choose PSVITA Type D

- Update Driver

- Choose manually and go to the inf file location.

 

Maybe the install by dpinst works to, I didn't try.
