"Device requires further installation" in Device Manager
From Windows 10 users, we sometimes get asked about an event that is displayed
in the device properties in Device Manager and looks like this:
The entry under Device install requested lists the device name and says
Device requires further installation. We have been asked if this means
that the driver might not be installed properly.
Actually, if you look at the list, you will see that even though the entry
in the list of Events might be the top one, the Timestamp is older
than the entries below. This means that this message is normal and has no significant
meaning at all, even though it can be confusing and previous Windows versions
did not show something similar. If there is an entry called Device installed
somewhere under it in the list, then you can assume that the driver for your
device is properly installed. Only if this is missing and you have issues with
installing the driver, please follow the instructions on driver installation
for your ESI product as listed in or Knowledge Base and / or in the printed
manual for your product.
For a fresh installation of Windows, we have provided this
article for further troubleshooting and if you are using a PCI / PCIe card
and upgraded to Windows 10, please check this.
