Admin rights required to install drivers. Workaround???

I am using a computer that requires administrative rights in order to run your driver installation application. Is there a way for me to work around that by you sending me the raw driver files instead of using the application to install them?

Hi Noah,

Thanks for posting!

Unfortunately, we cannot provide a workaround for the requirement of administrative privileges on your machine. Even if we provided the driver .inf files to you, they would not install properly and therefore it would not work. Is it possible for you to request that your IT department install the drivers for you?

I understand that this may not be possible in some work environments, and in that case I would happy to help you with a quick return and refund your purchase. Just contact us at and use the subject line “Refund - Ticket #230378”.

Sorry I couldn’t be of more help!
