    I’m having Jacosoft driver issues once again following the Anniversary update of Windows 10. The procedure described in the previous post no longer works. Please recommend a method to install the Kinova drivers in updated Windows 10 environment.

    Thank you, Steve Fox



    Hello Steve, I hope all is well,

    Unfortunately we don’t have a solution yet for the Anniversary update. I have read a bit about it on the web and it seems that with this update Microsoft doesn’t allow any un-signed drivers at all anymore.

    I will verify with our software team if we can find a new work-around for this and keep you informed here! In the meantime, if you find something, please don’t hesitate to share it here!

    Thank you very much,



    Hi Alex,

    Yes, unsigned drivers are only enabled when booting up Windows 10 Pro (1607) in Test mode. This is inconvenient but workable for developers but not available to the typical Jacosoft user. Apparently even Test mode requires a provisional, company assigned, signature.

    I haven’t seen any permanent work-arounds so far.



    Hi Steve,

    I’m one of the software developer at Kinova.

    I would like to have more details on the process you follow to install jacosoft drivers on Win10 build 1607.
    We tried on one of our laptop with a fresh Win10 Anniversary build iso and I was able to install the drivers using the same procedure as stated in this post : http://www.kinovarobotics.com/support/topic/jacosoft-and-usb3/

    Could you explain what you do and give us more details on your setup ?
    Could you send us a screenshot of the “winver” tool to know the exact build number ?
    Do you have SafeBoot ON on the PC ?
    Which version of Jacosoft do you have ?

    You can send an email to support@kinovarobotics.com, it will be sent to me by our support team.

A new year is a time for new beginnings and starting things afresh. In the spirit of making a change, there’s a specific paradigm that needs to be addressed, or, as many in the industry would say, “disrupted.” Consider 2018 the year of “The New Normal” for the Assistive market. The New Normal is a term coined by our colleague, Abe Clark, in the United States.

My objective at Kinova is to build bridges between people, businesses, educational organizations, and governments to effectively fuel the cycle of innovation. Unsurprisingly, that means hopping on a plane and going to find the best people in the world to exchange with. This is why the concept of Steering Committees as I came to realize is, and will increasingly be, vital.
