Trying to install Realtek Audio97 drivers but can't because they aren't signed

0 like 0 dislike

I'm trying to install the Realtek Audio97 sound driver from the Realtek driver download page for Windows 7 and every time I try to run the installer I get the "Windows Can't verify the publisher of this driver". No matter how many times I select "Install this driver anyway", it just keeps coming back in a forever loop to that same popup window.

Do you actually need AC97? IIRC, Realtek High Definition Audio Codec superseded AC97 and ac97 is need only for backwards compatibility.

Have you run the installation as Administrator?

If yes try this.

Go to start type CMD prompt then copy and paste this (this will disable digital driver signing authentication)

bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING ON

UAC was and is disabled.
Will you Type UAC into the windows search and turn it off. Try install then
Still facing the same issue
It's also the home edition so I there's no gpedit.msc option either.
