When installing current Lynx drivers for Thunderbolt or USB, you may get an error message that the drivers will not show as being signed. The drivers are signed by Lynx, but they are not counter-signed by Microsoft (which is a very long and difficult process). As such, Windows 10 Build 1607 and higher will not load the driver unless you disable driver signature enforcement. Here are the steps to do so:
* First off, since you will be disabling a security feature of Windows, after completing these steps take care to only install drivers that you trust to avoid potential corruption of your OS.
* We will be using a "test signing mode" in Windows to get past the driver signing enforcement. Start by right-clicking the Start button, and selecting "Command Prompt (Admin)".
* Paste the following command into the Command Prompt window and press Enter:
bcdedit /set testsigning on
* Restart your computer to enter test mode. After re-boot you will see a "Test Mode" watermark in the bottom-right corner of the screen. In this state you can successfully install the Lynx Drivers.
* To leave test mode (which will disable the ability to use the Lynx driver), open a Command Prompt (Admin) window again and run the following command:
bcdedit /set testsigning off
