Using the RAZ-IR camera & software with Windows 8 requires an easy fix.  Since Windows 8 has “driver signing” on by default, usually a user with administrative rights has to complete the task.

*NOTE*  If you’ve already tried installing this without reading this, you’ll have to go to “Uninstall Programs” applet and uninstall both the driver & software.

First, you’ll need to disable driver signing (For detailed screenshots, click here for an easy to follow article)
