Getting help with running Fxsound

Hi guys

I got a problem with running Fxsound on my old laptop running windows 7.

Installed successfully (I think)

I get this error

I changed the “Local Group Policy Editor” settings as well.
(Code signing for device drivers)

Not successful. :frowning:

Getting that infamous "Oops! There’s an issue with… "

I would appreciate any help from you guys.

Thank you

You need to install some updates for SHA-2 code sign support.

Don’t use gpedit, if you don’t understand what you are doing.

Hey @raddy

Thank you man.

I edited “gpedit” because it has mentioned on one of these threads.

I will keep that on mind.

Let me get back to you with the update solution.

Hi Sam, welcome to the forum.

When did you download the program, from what source, and which version?
Installing the latest version - currently v1.1.22.0 - is always recommended.

Besides a regular Control Panel uninstall, you can also remove the driver from Device Manager manually if necessary; the instructions on that are linked here.

The solution offered by @bvijay under the fourth category of the issue linked below also seems worth a try:

add this to the list of solutions, if you really want to help:

If it’s not too much to ask, could you look in:
C: > Program Files > FxSound LLC > FxSound
And check the “Digital Signatures” tab in the Properties of FxSound.exe?
I might be wrong, but I’m guessing this would provide certainty on the certificate issue regarding SHA-1 / SHA-2.
