    I did get fast help from Harman support, issue solved by following instructions:

    Sometimes you need to disable Driver Signature Enforcement in windows 10 for our driver to install. Here is a link that explains how to do so.

    I just got a Notepad 12FX and have the same issue. I can't believe Harman/Soundcraft are recommending users disable a security feature of Windows. Can't they upgrade the drivers properly? Unresolved driver issues is the kind of experience I might expect with a cheap, no-name brand, not with Soundcraft. Granted, the Notepad series is pretty affordable, but still...?

    I forget my admin password or my up 24(((( can you help me...how can I change admin password

  • I previously had my Notepad 12FX drivers working fine with my Windows 10 PC. I had to do the silly workaround by disabling the certificate security. However, I recently had to reinstall Windows 10. Now I can't get the drivers to install and stay working. I disable certificate security, load the drivers, it works, but after I reboot, they no longer work. I have tried reinstalling multiple times. This is annoying.

    Soundcraft should provide working drivers with valid certificates. This is ridiculous. Aren't they worried about their reputation??????

    I have the same issues with windows 10 and i need to proceed with the certificate desactivation each time I would like to record something. What a pain. What the heck are you waiting to fix this ????
