PROXMARK3: NOT FOUND! in Win7

Updating a win7 last version (r487-r498) and flashing my pm3 appears this error  ..... PROXMARK3 : NOT FOUND! attempting to enter any command the program closes.

According to the forum says I have several ways to install the driver according to this forum

http://www.proxmark.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=531

but still the same problem .... but I follow this procedure

"I have found a signed driver. I test it And This driver Works with last review of the proxmark3."
... ned-driver http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=c

But is to many drivers signed but any working and still giving the same problem

  My PC has Win7 and 32 bit someone can help me

Re: PROXMARK3: NOT FOUND! in Win7

Hey kra,

I had difficulty with this too when I first started with the PM3. The thread you linked has the answer though.
As merlok stated (Here), go to a site that has the Flip libusb signed driver.
Find the PM3 in your device manager under Human Interface Devices.
Update the driver.  I used 'AT90USB162'. I don't know if selecting anything else will/wont work I have not bothered trying tongue (I moved to Ubuntu for PM3 dev work)

PM3 noobie hint:
If you're anything like me and have a computer with over 30 HID thingies attached, you might have a little difficulty finding the PM3 amongst the other devices.
All Windows XP and Windows 7 variants will show the Proxmark as a 'USB Input Device' (That probably rounds it down a bit). To find the PM3, right-click each 'USB Input Device' go to the 'Details' tab and select 'Bus reported device description'. The Promark will identify as 'ProxMark-3 RFID Instrument'.

Hope this helps smile

You can also use the signed driver inside http://proxmark3.com/dl/pm3-bin-r486.zip.

Oh... Forgot about that. It's been a while since I used the PM3 with Windows.
Thanks proxcat.

Re: PROXMARK3: NOT FOUND! in Win7

Hi 0xFFFF and proxcat

Thanks for answering my question

I follow the procedure of each one

0xFFFF

PROXMARK3: NOT FOUND! : S: S: S

Yes I follow the procedure merlok
I install the signed driver on my computer "AT90USB162"  but PM3 appears in 'libusb-Win32 devices' but not 'USB Input Device' ... I don't know if there is a problem, but still recognizes and displays installed

proxcat

I Download and installed the signed driver  and I see "RFID Instrument ProxMark-3" in 'libusb-Win32 devices' in Device Manager but I still see PROXMARK3: NOT FOUND! .

But I find in the folder you sent me in the Win32 folder (v486) an executable named proxmark3.exe which when I compile my files it's no appeared any side, but neither attempt worked out there

When connecting my PM3 sounds of the speaker device is connected but still recognize

If you do not know any other method as you will be the last option, I have Ubuntu on VMware Player but I have no idea how to run out there.

Sorry for the noob questions but all we have ever been

thanks

this appear when i run Prox.exe gui

Re: PROXMARK3: NOT FOUND! in Win7

Hey kra,

It does not should not matter if you change between drivers. I know I've done that plenty of times in the past and had no issues.

Do you know what firmware you're running on the proxmark?

Are you running as an administrator?

Re: PROXMARK3: NOT FOUND! in Win7

It's funny I prove my PM3 in a  PC (Win XP, 32 bit)  and it worked! but It is NOT a laptop and is uncomfortable

But I prove in various Pc Win7  (32 bit and 64bit) with different processors and does not recognize it... it's very strange

My firmware is the latest update svn 498 have published.
And Yes I running as an administrator

As you can see here, according to the command 'version' appears in my PM3

First of all, you need to run client from SVN r498.

BTW we should write some FAQ for noobs, i.e. how to compile latest SVN, how to run client on windows 7, etc and stick it so every noob will see it.

Re: PROXMARK3: NOT FOUND! in Win7

For me in XP, I would never get the "proxmark3>" command line if the Proxmark3.exe couldn't see the PM3 device through the USB. However, it appears above that kra was getting that command line prompt. For example, you won't get the "proxmark3>" command line if the device is not plugged into the USB port.

Re: PROXMARK3: NOT FOUND! in Win7

Hi,Kra. My problem is due to the driver as it not verify for window 7. After installed the latest zip also deleting the old version.
The next step I did was to assign the human interface device .update driver,browse my computer,let me pick,i have disk,from my subdirectory folder proxmark_driver,install anyway. After all this,my proxmark3 was detected. Next is to open the folder win32 >proxmark3/exe after that ,it work.

Hope this will be able to help you.

Re: PROXMARK3: NOT FOUND! in Win7

Go in to your 'ProxSpace' directory. There should be a file called 'runme.bat'. You will need to modify 'MYPATH'. Eg.
If your 'ProxSpace' folder path is 'C:\ProxMark\ProxSpace' use the following: 'set MYPATH=%~d0\ProxMark\ProxSpace'
Using SVN, check out the Proxmark revision your after in to 'C:\ProxMark\ProxSpace\pm3' (assuming the example scenario above). Or, if you've already checked out simply copy the contents in to the 'pm3' folder.
Run 'runme.bat'.
Type in the following:
cd client
./proxmark3.exe

Have fun.

Re: PROXMARK3: NOT FOUND! in Win7

Google translator is awesome........

(Translated)

Thank you! It works ....

But the truth if it was the last post of 0xFFFF, because from my point of view I did not work and fail in that rumne.bat hahahahaha

But as you can see in the video I installed the 'Instrument RFID ProxMark-3' by David PC and this time I did was update the port 'USB Input Device' that went out from time to time .... only when he wants.

A recommendation is right boys Vivat is best to update and download the latest version of SVN and if they can make videos on youtube that would be easier to get to write an entire manual

Re: PROXMARK3: NOT FOUND! in Win7

I have a little different problem here: windows vista 64x just automatically recognize the hardware as a HID input device and i cannot update the drivers because they are "up to date"... is there a way to solve that ? The windows files used are:

hidclass.sys
hidparse.sys
hidusb.sys

located under root:\Windows\System32\drivers

I cannot delete them... and maybe deleting them will cause some windows function not to work properly... any solution ?

Re: PROXMARK3: NOT FOUND! in Win7

Deleting them will cause them to be installed again the  next time you plug the PM3 again...
It's big headache ! the best way I found is to use XP...

Re: PROXMARK3: NOT FOUND! in Win7

PROBLEM FINALLY SOLVED (under Vista 64 bit):

1) Let Vista automatically find drivers

2) Now go to Start and type gpedit.msc in the Start Search and press Enter; once Local Group Policy Editor is open navigate to:     

Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Driver Installation like in this picture:
disableautomaticdriverupdate.png
and from the right sidebar open the key (doubleclick on it) with name “Turn Off Windows Update Device Driver Search Prompt”, select Enabled and click OK.

3) Now go to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Device Installation -> expand the subfolder Device Installation on the left and click on restrictions voice: on the right side you will see the possible restrictions.
Now doubleclickt Click on "Prevent Installation of Devices not described by other policy settings" and set it on ENABLED.

ABSOLUTELY DO NOT REBOOT (otherwise you will not be able to install any driver manually !)

4)  Now: rightclick on "Computer" -> Properties -> Device Manager -> Expand "Human Interface Device (HID), right click on the wrong device and uninstall it (in my case unistalling the last one will cause 2 devices to be removerd, this is normal - if you want to know exactly which one to remove choose the one with VID_9AC4&PID_4B8F)

AGAIN DO NOT ABSOLUTELY REBOOT for the same reason as above

5) Now right click on "Human Interface Device (HID)" and choose "Find Hardware Modifcations" (usually the 1st voice): the Proxmark3 will be now revealed but the settings in step 3 will prevent windows to automatically install its drivers so now right click on the new device with yellow exclamation mark and manually search on your PC for the driver (usally in folder \pm3-bin-r486\proxmark_driver).

Proxmark3 will be now recognized under libusb-win32 devices !!!

THAT'S IT !

This seems difficult but it will be quite easy after all smile


EDIT: REMEMBER TO SET AGAIN THE 2 OPTIONS IN STEP 3 “Turn Off Windows Update Device Driver Search Prompt” and "Prevent Installation of Devices not described by other policy settings" to "NOT SET" otherwise windows will not automatically install any new driver anymore !!!

Re: PROXMARK3: NOT FOUND! in Win7

SOLUTION FOR WINDOWS XP (tested 32bit) and 7 (tested 64 bit)

1) Connect Proxmark3 to a USB port and let Windows automatically install drivers

2) Rightclick on "My Computer" -> Properties -> Hardware Tab -> Human Interface Device (HID) -> Rightclick on the HID device with VID_9AC4&PID_4B8F -> Driver update -> choose "expert user" (second choice) -> Check "do not search... search it manually" (second option) -> driver disk -> point to  \pm3-bin-r486\proxmark_driver folder

DONE

This solution may also be tested under Vista (really easier)


The procedure is a bit different under Windows 7 but it should be easy for you to do even without step by step guide; dunno why I found so much difficulties under Vista 64 bit...

Re: PROXMARK3: NOT FOUND! in Win7

SOLUTION FOR WINDOWS 8

For safety reasons Windows 8 requires all hardware drivers to have a digital signature before install them; anyway some drivers work like a charm even if they are not digitally signed.

To install proxmark3 drivers you MUST disable the Win8 signature check; here how to do that:

1 - go with the mouse pointer in the bottom-right corner of the screen and select "Settings":
DAsaVTK.png


2 - Select the "Change PC settings" option at the bottom of the "Settings" tab:
Bf16jaF.jpg


3 - In the "PC settings" tab, select "General":
3hZ341c.png


4 - Scroll down and click "Restart now" button under "Advanced startup"; pc will reboot:
JJvEiYm.png


5 - After reboot you will see a new screen where you must select ""Troubleshoot" option:
CINJd4C.png


6 - Now select "Advanced options":
OPHEEvn.png


7 - Here select "Startup Settings":
A3ObxG0.png


8 - Now hit the "Restart" button in the bottom-right:
bAz3VkS.png


9 - Your pc will reboot in a new screen with some options, you must press F7 to automatically reboot with driver signature disabled:
tysrEdQ.png



UNSIGNED DRIVER INSTALLATION
Now that you disabled the signature check, you can install pm3 unsigned driver; here how to do that:

A - Connect pm3 to pc with Windows 8, automatic drive search will appear and rapidly will auto-close;
B - rightclick on computer -> Manage -> Manage Devices -> under "other devices" locate the "Unknown Device" with the following VID/PID: USB\VID_2D2D&PID_504D
C - right click on it -> select  "properties" -> go to "driver tab" -> "driver update" -> "manual update" -> select the folder containing proxmark3.inf (if you use my Windows compiled release you can find it under "\Windows Drivers" folder).
di7uTVD.png


NOTES
If you need to change the driver you need to do the entire procedure from the beginning because there is no way to permanetly disable Windows 8 signature driver check.
If someone can provide a releasable signed driver all this procedure will not be necessary.

Re: PROXMARK3: NOT FOUND! in Win7

I have an old notebook. Running with Win7 32bit.
I have not any problem using/installing the driver the Proxmark with the old interface.
(I use another computer to flash between old interface-<>-CDC)
However, I am not able to instal the driver for the CDC interface...
I tried everything I could think of... (button, signature, reboot, safe mode...)

The error I get during the driver installation is : "A service installation section in the INF is invalid".

And it has been driving me crazy all day Oo

     inf:                Opened INF: 'f:\pm3-bin-715\proxmark3.inf' ([strings])
!    inf:                Unable to load INF: 'C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\mdmcpq.inf_x86_neutral_9f203c20b6f0dabd\mdmcpq.inf'(00000003)

     inf:                Opened INF: 'f:\pm3-bin-715\proxmark3.inf' ([strings])

I copied that folder from another Win7 32bit to this 32bit version. And I am now getting closer to find a solution.
However, now it fails after this step :

     dvi:                               {Writing Device Properties - Complete}
     inf:                               {Install Inf Section [DriverInstall.Services]}
     inf:                                    AddService=usbser,0x00000002,LowerFilter_Service_Inst  (proxmark3.inf line 24)

     ndv:                Performing device install final cleanup...
!    ndv:                Queueing up error report since device installation failed...

EDIT : I bypassed the problem by formating and installing windows xp... Now it is fine.
