Brother has a Windows 8 driver for the 64 bit machine, but it will not install because Windows 8 disallows the installation of a kernel-mode driver. Brother tells me that Microsoft or HP has to fix the problem by allowing the kernel-mode driver to be installed. I'm surprised that Brother would develop a kernel-mode driver, so I suspect a problem with the driver setup. Regardless, is there a work-around to install this driver?
I have tried changing policies related to kernal mode drivers, but they do not seem relevant for Windows 8.
The system is a HP laptop with Cintrino Processor. The system has been running 64 bit Windows 7 for several years without any problems. This is last remaining problem in my upgrade to Window 8. I hope someone will help.
