The driver bundle provided doesn’t include a digital signature (*.cat) file, so it can’t be installed on any modern version of Windows; all 64-bit versions of Windows require a digital signature for the driver bundle (which has been a real PITA for anyone that needs to make .inf files to describe hardware that works with existing signed .sys drivers). Windows 10 also doesn’t recognize the device - the tool doesn’t move or show any signs of life, and for a brief period, all I see is “MT65xx Preloader” as an unknown device in Device Manager.
Kinda getting super frustrated trying to do this super easy process Has anyone tried this on a clean PC to see if it’s as easy as quoted, without any pre-existing development tools/drivers installed?
update: Here is a signed driver bundle: Download MediaTek Preloader USB VCOM Drivers (for MT65xx, MT67xx and MT68xx Chipest) and installation guide - TechReen - probably a good idea to replace that link with one that doesn’t ask someone to change their Windows configuration to allow unsigned drivers (very, very inadvisable practice!) and use a bodged driver like that. Just get a signed version which isn’t available automatically in Windows by default.
