Installing unsigned nic driver in w2k

By jrodri1636 ·
I have a dfe-530tx+ dlink network adapter. I have tried to install the driver in w2k. It keeps telling that the error installing driver data invalid. I have changed the driver privilege to ignore in driver signing, but still it will not install. It works well in win98.

Download the correct/latest driver from :

http://support.dlink.com/downloads/

I've looked and there are drivers for your network card for Win9x/NT/2000/XP. So this should work.

Downloading the drivers in not the problem. The problem is that the device driver will not load in win2k. I get an error in the event viewer that driver entry point not found. I have the latest driver for win2k, but I keep getting errors like error installing invalid data. I have changed the driver priviledge to warn but install unsigned driver. What's up.

You don't have an 'unsigned' driver problem, you have an installation problem or hardware conflict.

An 'unsigned' driver only means that the driver has not been checked and 'blessed' by Micro$oft.

Many hardware mfgs. refuse to pay for signing until they have the final stable release of the driver.

I would start by updating the PCI bridge driver for the chip-set on the motherboard.

It is also possible that you got a corrupt download of the driver.
