Title: (SOLVED) Windows 10 "Device xxx requires further installation"
Post by: rkbren on September 03, 2015, 08:14:27 AM
I've been dealing with "Device such and such requires further installation" for some time now on my Win 10 laptop, although I hadn't realized it until recently. The message shows up when the Events tab is selected for a driver in Driver Manager. In my case, at least several drivers are affected, including the display adapter, network, and audio devices. Curiously, the device associated with the driver appears to function properly. However, after migrating from Win 8.1 to Win 10, the Linux Mint installation I had running in a VMWare virtual machine stopped recognizing a network connection (which prompted my looking at the driver events). I've tried all sorts of deletion and re-installation without any effect whatsoever. Running Tweaking.com (absolutely great software!) didn't seem to help this problem even though it corrected many others. Any ideas for solving this problem (if in fact it is a problem!) will be greatly appreciated.

Have you checked the vendors sites for Win 10 drivers ?

Yes. As far as I can tell, I have the latest drivers.

It seems strange that all of your devices are working but there are a few Google links relating to this error and perhaps this article may shed some light. http://kb.esi-audio.com/?goto=KB00234EN

According to the site you gave, the "Device xxx requires further installation"  message doesn't mean anything because it's not the latest message listed in Events. The site also says that everything's OK if there's a "device installed" entry. In my case, there were no "device installed" messages in Events for any driver. However, there was always a "device migrated" message which I guess means everything's fine. In any case, I've marked the thread "Solved". Thanks again.

I guess "migrated" could mean it is installed and you don't always get the exact messages in some cases as articles show.

As long as you are satisfied but it would annoy me to hell to have that error showing :)

Yeah, it doesn't make me feel all warm and toasty either. I wish Microsoft would at least post something searchable about things like this, but I guess that's asking too much.

Perhaps after Threshold2 - the proposed major update due in October may resolve a lot of problems.

I've "upvoted" feedback regarding this issue someone left about a Miracast driver. Let's hope Microsoft takes some action.

Well, they have done something about the auto updates as they can cause problems for those on a limited bandwidth and if sufficient people are complaining about it then they will probably do something about it.

The last thing they want with this flagship is another Win 8.0.
