The problem is the unsigned driver. You need to allow installation of unsigned drivers on your Windows 8 computer. It will then work normally.

  • While on the Start Screen, open Computer Settings which is located on the Charms Menu.
  • Change PC Settings
  • General

  • Troubleshoot

  • Startup Settings
  • Restart
  • Disable driver signature enforcement, the computer will reboot
  • Log on
  • Go to desktop by pressing WinKey + D
  • Open Windows Explorer by pressing WinKey + E
  • Right click on computer and choose Manage
  • Click on Device Manager
  • Right Click on the Mobile Studio Driver which should have the yellow ! symbol on it, and choose update driver
  • Browse to the Drivers folder under C:\ Program Files (x86)\Rensselaer\Mobile Studio Desktop\Drivers
  • Click OK
  • You should get a warning message that the driver is unsigned
  • Click on Install anyway
