Logic 2.3.37 failed to install on windows 11

Hello all,

My machine took the auto update from windows recently, and when I fired up the Logic it also took an update to install 2.3.37 and it failed to install the software. Tried to install several earlier version down to 2.3.30 and the problem still persisted and couldn’t use the device anymore. Does anyone here having the same problem? Any inputs will be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards,

Hello Timreyes,

The OS I’m using is Windows 11 pro Insider Preview. Build 22463.rs_prerelease.210917-1503.
The error message were never displayed clearly, just the status bar rolling almost to the right then back to the left and this window.

Please advise. Thank you!

Best Regards,

@thelamnguyen Thanks for sharing that. It does in fact look similar to the error message in the support article I shared previously. My first hunch is that there is incompatibility with Windows 11. We haven’t run extensive tests on the new version on Windows yet.

I saw that you sent in your installog files via email. Thanks for that. We’ll be in touch via email.

Hello TimReyes,

I’m sorry for the late response. The software was working fine at rev 2.3.36 without any problems. However, once my machine took the windows update and in addition to that I accidentally update the Logic to version 2.3.37, the installation didn’t go through. I’m working with my IT department to revert the OS back to windows 10 then try again and keep you updated.

Best Regards,

@thelamnguyen Thanks for the update. We have some work on our end this week to verify our software with Win11. In the meantime, reverting back to Win10 might be a good idea. I’ll keep you updated on our test results.

We were able to run tests with Windows 11 on our end and succeeded in installing the software and necessary drivers. The Logic also connected and was able to capture data. It looks like Windows 11 is currently compatible with our products.

With that said, it’s possible that the installation error you are seeing might not be related to Windows 11, but instead could be related to another issue. In case your failed install attempt generated an install log file, could you send that over to us? Instructions are below:

The same problems on windows 11 insider preview (latest update) - tried several versions, incl. the last one is 2.3.38. It is not installed (rollback is in progress, it was possible to disable rollback with the keys in the registry, because periodically it is necessary to analyze other people’s results), and the device driver does not work normally (refusal to install the driver, some errors on device manager page). On release windows 11 it works fine (on another computer).

Thanks for the extra information! It does seem like the problem could be specific to the insider program.

We’ve just installed Windows 11 on another machine and verified that the driver installation had no issues.

Now that Windows 11 has been released, are you planning on continuing to use the insider program?

I will roll back to windows 10. Insider has problems with Saleae (necessary for work), and in the release there are still problems with L3 cache (insider don’t have, but have problem with twitch too). I do not know yet. I’m waiting for the release patches, if the work with L3 is fixed in the near future, then I’ll go to the release.

Good to know! My main development machine has a Ryzen CPU, I’ll be sure to hold off updating too.

I had the same the problem with installing the software on my windows 11 insider build. I solved it by starting windows with the option to load unsigned drivers (Installing an Unsigned Driver during Development and Test - Windows drivers | Microsoft Docs). With this start option the install worked without any problems.

Thanks for reporting your workaround!

I suspect the problem is that our driver is signed with a SHA1 certificate. However, I can’t find one shred of documentation from Microsoft that they’ve stopped accepting SHA1 signed drivers.
(They did stop accepting SHA1 signed software a while ago)

We’re able to install our drivers on the non-insider Windows 11 builds. I’m not sure if this means Microsoft plans to stop accepting SHA1 signed drivers eventually, or if there is another reason for difference in the insider version.

Ideally, Microsoft would publish some information somewhere as to why this is the case.
