For new version GQ-4X V4(GQ-4x4), GQ-5X Windows 10 driver update, see:

[added on Jan/19/2016]

For new version GQ-4X V4(GQ-4x4), GQ-5X Win XP, Win7 driver update, see:
http://www.mcumall.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=7054
[added on Mr/22/2016]

For old GQ-4X, if your Windows is English version, you can use signed USB driver Re2.01:

http://www.mcumall.com/downloads/download.asp?DownloadID=55

and then you can ignore all below posts.
===========================================================

If your Windows is not in English version, you need to use following steps to install the unsigned USB driver 2.01 to your computer:


The Windows 8 only accepts the fully digital signed driver.

Temporary disable the digital signature enforcement will let you install the USB driver.

Here are the steps:

From the Metro Start Screen, open Settings (move your mouse to the bottom-right-corner of the screen and wait for the pop-out bar to appear, then click the Gear icon).

Click "More PC Settings"

Click "General"

Scroll down, and click "Restart now" under "Advanced startup"

Wait a bit.

Click "Troubleshoot"

Click "Advanced Options"

Click "Windows Startup Settings"

Click Restart.


When your computer restarts, select "Disable driver signature enforcement (choice 7)from the list. You can now load the driver. Reboot again once the driver is installed and all will be well.

Be sure to run as an administrator.

Stole this from somewhere else. I thought I would share. Might be easier?

1. run shutdown.exe /r /o /f /t 00
2. System will restart to a "Choose an option" screen
3. Select "Troubleshoot" from "Choose an option" screen
4. Select "Advanced options" from "Troubleshoot" screen
5. Select "Windows Startup Settings" from "Advanced options" screen
6. Click "Restart" button

System will restart.

7. Select "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement"

If your display is digital or doesn't work like mine (hdmi) just hit "F7" then "enter". Trust me. :)

What was not mentioned was that when you next boot up into Windows a screen appears with a message like "Trying to Repair your Windows Installation." It fails and gives one of the options of reformatting the disk.

I chose Start Windows Normally - it worked.

ZLM's method only works if one is using the Metro interface. Powerusers disable or use third party desktop shell. Cake's method works.

Running HP Envy laptop w/ 8.1 Windows, 64 bit, I-7 Processor, 12 gig ram, 2.4 Ghz. Hitting gear icon does not give me your options in your solution. I get a 'Change PC Settings" at bottom of screen which brings up a PC Settings Menu. There is no general tab, no restart now or advanced startup option. Unit is installed in X86 programs with all files. Hitting icon does nothing. A little advanced guidance to get operational please? Thanks, Marty

I installed it and it did not work.
I tried it the way you said but still does not work?

Do I have to uninstall the program and then reinstall after I have disabled the driver signing?

No, you do not need to uninstall the software.
After you disabled the driver signing, the driver should be installed normally.

Check your driver from device manager. See Reply #6:

OK, I am trying to get through all this for the first time. My GQ-4X wont arrive until this evening but I decided that I would go ahead and install the software ahead of time since Youtube says do not install from the disk but get the latest program instead.

I have Windows 8.1 (64bit) and I downloaded the latest Ver 6.36 and installed it.. It installed without a hitch..

...then I downloaded the usb driver and I read the README file and it said (much to my horror)

IMPORTANT: Install this driver before install the software.
Because the software will install the Re.1.0 driver automatically.

Hmmm.. not the most user friendly installation

OK so now I need to install the updated USB driver...

What is the best coarse of action at this point?
A: Wait for the programmer to arrive and then update the driver through the device manager?
or
B: Uninstall the program and start fresh by plugging in the programmer and installing the driver when it asks for new hardware and then install the program which I guess I should have done in the first place?

Video link to disable driver signatures:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmw86KplqmU

Once you disabled the signature feature temporarily, then you can follow the regular steps to install the driver. This video is in Win 7, but Win 8 works same way.

I created a simple installer with my own tools and signed both the installer and the driver. This should allow anyone with Win8 (and maybe the other OS's too) to install cleaner. Here is the TEMPORARY link:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/km3nzclj6te0a0t/GQ4X%20Driver%20Setup.exe?dl=0

What I did was

  • Install the main software from here (6.36),

  • Then I ran the GQ4X Driver Setup from above.

  • It cleanly pre-installed the driver.

  • then when I plugged my programmer in for the first time it went without a hitch.



If anyone has any other experiences with it, good or bad, let me know.

It seems the installation exe file only works with English windows.
If you got this message, try to install the driver from Windows device manager with following signed driver:

Does this also work for GQ-3X? or just for GQ-4X?

Hi all

New to this site so hi everyone!

Seems to be an old problem i'm having but I just can't get it sorted out!
I have a GQ-4X which was installed on my laptop with windows 8, I have upgraded to windows 10 (64bit) and now cant get the device to communicate.
I did have the problem of upgrading the driver due to the digital sig error but with the help of this forum have got over that now.
My software is showing as being 2.0.1.0 and in the device information the device is showing as "working".
I am only using USB to power the unit but only get "on" light no "VPP".
Any idea's would be appreciated.

I finally succeed to install this driver, instead to select win10_64 driver (CYPRESS), I choose win7_64 and install "GQ USB Programmer" and it's fine now :)

Just got my GQ-4x4 this past week, but making it work on Windows 10 has not gone well. I disabled driver signing and installed it by right-clicking on the Unknown device in Device Manager and choosing Update Driver. This was the result:



https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_BKYoIz8W22OVo3ZlFHNmpRa2M/view?usp=sharing

Any ideas? I'm going to try Windows 7 in a VM for now.

Thanks,
CliC
