TrueRNG Windows 8 love

We’ve recently updated the TrueRNG downloads page with a signed INF driver for those windows users, and namely Windows 8.x users that are required to have a signed driver.

Second one of our users pointed out a bug in Windows 8.1 that popped up an error message in the rngcapture tool.  Rngcapture has been updated to 1.1 and appears to be fine now.

Thank you everyone for your feedback.

    Thank you for updating RNG Capture to 1.1. Unfortunately when I run the updated version I receive a new error message:
    (note – the Windows device manager shows that the TrueRNG USB device is connected to com5)

    c:random>rngcapture com5 test1.txt 9600
    Opening serial port \\.\ com0….error

    I will appreciate any advice you can offer to help me overcome this error

    Thank you

      Fortunately that error is just because the rngcapture program is a little crude. Just use the actual number of the comport numerically. So use “5” not “com5” … ie. “rngcapture 5 test.txt 9600”
      Sorry for the confusion.

    I just used your new Win 8 signed driver to use with TRaNGen2 and I am glad to report that it works great.
