Steps to install Sundance drivers under Windows 7 64 bit. In this example we show you a USB board, but the process should be the same for other computer interfaces too.

1: Get the latest version of the SMT6300.

The easiest way of doing this is to download the Sundance Wizard (Sundance Wizard) and run that.

It will also check that you have the latest versions of the other software we produce.

If you want / need just SMT6300, please ask us via your support forum (Support) and we will supply the latest files.


2: Run through the install wizard for SMT6300.

You will need to accept the installation of the "Jungo device software"

Next you will be asked if you want to install the driver software. It will say that "Windows can't verify the publisher of this driver software". You need to click "Install this driver software anyway".

There will be a couple of these pop-ups. You need to click "Install this driver software anyway" on all of them.

You will also see some pop-ups saying "Windows requires a digitally signed driver". Click close on these boxes.


3: Once SMT6300 is installed, connect and power on your Sundance USB device.

It will be detected, but will say "Device Driver was not successfully installed".

Check that this is the case in the Windows Device manager (Right click "Computer" and select "Manage". From the menu on the left select "Device Manager".

Under the USB devices you will see the Sundance board with a ! next to it.


4: Reboot the PC, and repeatedly press F8 before Windows starts. This brings up the "Advanced Boot Options".

From this menu, select "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement".

Windows will start.

5: Re open the "Device manager" and you will now see the Sundance board has been correctly detected and is ready for use.
