How to install the INF driver for OpenTracker USB and Tracker3 devices. This procedure should work on both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems, and works with Windows 7.

Windows 8 requires signed drivers. There aren't presently signed drivers available for the OTUSB and T3, but you can temporarily disable the restriction using the instructions here.

  1. Plug in the OpenTracker USB and open Device Manager.
  2. Under "Other devices" there will be an "Unknown device." Right-click the "Unknown device" and select Properties to ensure this is the correct device (VID 134A, PID 9000). Close the Properties dialog.
