Installation of ESP1010e under Windows Vista & 7/8/10 (from v2.09)
This text describes how to install the ESP1010e
driver under Windows 8.1 (32- or 64-bit) with driver versions starting from
version 2.09. The process is virtually the same for Windows Vista, Windows 7,
Windows 8 and Windows 10. A description of the installation with earlier drivers
(up to version 2.07) can be found here as a video.
Make sure that you have downloaded and unzipped the driver
file. Install the ESP1010e hardware in your computer if not already done.
If you are just booting your system, Windows might detect the hardware as a
new device and a Found New Hardware dialog will appear automatically.
If so, click Cancel.
To start the installation, launch the setup program, which is an .exe file
that is inside the driver download, by double clicking on it. Typically the
filename is something like ESP1010e_driver_vX.YY_setup.exe where X.YY
is the version number of the driver. When launching the installer, Windows
might display a security message. Make sure to allow the installation. After
that, the following dialog will appear:
Click Next and then the following dialog will appear:
Now click Install. Files are now being copied. After some
time an additional dialog will appear:
Confirm this by clicking Next. Again some files are being copied and
typically you will be prompted with a Windows Security
message like this:
Confirm it by clicking Install. After a while the installation
then will be completed and the following dialog will appear:
Once you see this, click Finish. On some systems it might be good to
reboot the computer manually now. You will see that the ESP1010e control panel
is now automatically being loaded and displayed - the installation is finished.
In case you need to uninstall the driver at a later time, you will find it
under the list of installed Programs in Windows Control Panel.
You can simply remove it there.
