JUNO-G and Windows 8

Postby BillArnette » 17:51, 28 October 2012

*** DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE CAUSED TO YOUR SYSTEM OR JUNO-G IF YOU FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS ***

I just installed Windows 8 32-bit on my DAW machine and went to install the Windows 7 Juno-G driver on it. Unfortunately the installer would not allow installation on Windows 8 citing an incorrect OS version. Since the driver model from Windows 7 to Windows 8 has not changed, I figured it should work and it was just the installer that was preventing installation.

Fortunately the actual drivers are uncompressed in the driver download. I first tried installing the driver by right clicking the .INF file (Files\RDIF1063.INF for the Windows 7 64-bit driver) and selecting install and it claimed to work, but the driver was not actually installed. So I had a look at the contents of the .INF file and saw the lines below:


Code: Select all
;;-- From the Win 7 64-bit driver .INF file --
[Roland.NTamd64.6.1]
;; Windows7
%RDID0063DeviceDesc%=RDID0063Install, USB\VID_0582&PID_00A6 ; JUNO-G

[Roland.NTamd64.6.2]
;; not supported

;;-- From the Win 7 32-bit driver .INF file --
[Roland.NTx86.6.1]
;; Windows7
%RDID0063DeviceDesc%=RDID0063Install, USB\VID_0582&PID_00A6 ; JUNO-G

[Roland.NTx86.6.2]
;; not supported


The sections specify the OS and version.
NTx86 = 32-bit Windows
NTamd64 = 64-bit Windows.
6.1 = Windows 7
6.2 = Windows 8

So, Roland.NTx86.6.2 refers to Windows 8 32-bit

So, I copied the line from the Windows 7 section to the Windows 8 section. After that the lines looked like this:

Code: Select all
;;-- From the Win 7 64-bit driver .INF file --
[Roland.NTamd64.6.1]
;; Windows7
%RDID0063DeviceDesc%=RDID0063Install, USB\VID_0582&PID_00A6 ; JUNO-G

[Roland.NTamd64.6.2]
;; Windows 8
%RDID0063DeviceDesc%=RDID0063Install, USB\VID_0582&PID_00A6 ; JUNO-G

;;-- From the Win 7 32-bit driver .INF file --
[Roland.NTx86.6.1]
;; Windows7
%RDID0063DeviceDesc%=RDID0063Install, USB\VID_0582&PID_00A6 ; JUNO-G

[Roland.NTx86.6.2]
;; Windows8
%RDID0063DeviceDesc%=RDID0063Install, USB\VID_0582&PID_00A6 ; JUNO-G


Then I saved the file, right-clicked it, and selected 'Install'.

Looking in Device Manager, I saw that the JUNO-G was no longer an unrecognized device. So I tested it with Sonar X1 and it worked!

I haven't tried to install the editor and librarian yet.

Hope this helps!

Hi Bill

I've tried your suggestion, but it complains about a checksum no longer matching (I suspect it's to do with the signing security file). DId you have this problem? I'm using Windows 8 64 bit.

Thanks

I was afraid somebody was going to beat me to this.

Yeah, later today I installed 64-bit Win8 and got the same result as you.

It did work with 32-bit Win8. I presumed it would work with 64-bit until I tested it. :(

This looks promising...

I'll report back after I try it.


ETA: SUCCESS!

I did as the above post suggested using bcdedit to disable checking of the driver installation signature and it worked.

- In a command prompt (or powershell) running as administrator...

bcdedit -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON

- reboot
- Install the driver by right-clicking the .INF and selection 'Install'
- Allow the driver to install despite being unsigned
- Again in a command prompt (or powershell) running as administrator

bcdedit -set loadoptions ENABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING OFF

- reboot

Hope this helps,
Bill

Well done Bill. I'll check it when I get home, but thanks for all the research/testing.

Will it work on Windows 10?
