Regarding drivers from other countries

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So here's the rub, I took a plunge and bought a Dare-U Reachace S100. Got the mouse, nice out of the box, but the drivers do not work.


It's a chinese mouse so I figure it has to do with how characters are displayed or region locked, so if anyone can help me figure out how to make a chinese mouse driver/software work on an english/united states machine that'd be great.

Just tested off this link and the installer has an english lanuage option for install:

I tried it and have the same problem, the driver simply refuses to even launch. I think it has something to do with Windows 10.

My next thing to try is a virtual os like VirtualBox, and try a windows 7 virtual os and possibly in chinese, to see if it will launch then.

I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if this ended up being why it won't work, windows 10 has it's problems.


Tried it at my work computer that's running windows 7, it works PERFECTLY fine.

So it has to be windows 10, something about it just doesn't agree.

I'm on win 10 as well. try right clicking on the exe and select run as admin.

Tested, installed fine.

I tried that as well, didn't work


It's as if something was blocking it from even launching.

Anti-virus?

One thing that comes to mind is changing the system locale to chinese, you do this by searching for Region -> Administrative -> Language for non-Unicode programs. It requires a restart and isn't ideal, but might be worth a shot to get the software working.

Edit: Seeing as someone else got it working, this probably wont help

That's actually a solid point, I'll try disabling it when I get home to install.

Yea I tried that too


And I know it's something with my rig in particular cause I could install it at work and it was fine. Not a single hitch.

So it's likely something with my anti virus, or something worse that requires me to do a fresh install of windows 10 sometime soon.

Yeah i've been seeing this on other forums as well, seems to be a potential problem with win 10. Have you tried changing the default install location, do you have user account controls switched to low?

I've tried throwing it on my SSD and Harddrive, and I can't get it to work. And I don't have any other accounts but my own, but I'll try the low account controls too to see if it gets it running.
