PCAN-Explorer 6 Setup - Digital Signiture Error

Post by U.Wilhelm » Wed 8. Mar 2017, 12:40

If you run the PCAN-Explorer 6 Setup and get the following Error:
PE6_INST.jpg (59 KiB) Viewed 2826 times
You need to update your Windows System.
You need to take care that the Windows Version you used, have installed the latest Root Certificates.
The reason for the error is the not installed SHA-2 (also named SHA256) root Certificate from Microsoft.
Without this certification, our software could not be installed (security reasons)

If you PC have NO internet connection, please download from a PC with Internet Connection the following files:
Update KB3033929
https://technet.microsoft.com/de-de/lib ... 33929.aspx (Deutsch)
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/lib ... 33929.aspx (Englisch)

and run this packages on the PC where you need to install the PE6.
After that, reboot your system and run the PCAN-Explorer 6 Setup again.
