A. Installation and usage guide of the new generic USB DAC driver for Q1Mark II/Q5

If your computer is Windows OS, you need to install the USB DAC driver for the Q1MKII/Q5 on your computer firstly, before you want to make the Q1MKII/Q5 work as a DAC for the Windows computer.
The way to install the USB DAC driver for Q5 is the same as Q1MKII. Here is the example for Q1MKII.

Note: ① If it is iOS, then there is no need to install this driver.
② This DAC driver is NOT compatible with Windows XP.

1. Download the DAC driver package firstly: click here, then unzip the package and double click to run the "FiiO_USB_DAC_Driver)Setup_v4.13.0.exe".

Appendix I: Disable driver signature enforcement on Windows 7
Forsome versions of Windows 7, it cannot properly recognize the type of driversignature that we use and will cause the installation to fail. So you need todisable the driver signature enforcement before the installation.
(Butif it still fails after disabling the driver signature enforcement, you mayalso need to update your system. In that case, please check Appendix II).

Method 1
1.Press the Winows key + R on the keyboard to open the Run box, then enter gpedit.mscand click OK

2. In the "Local GroupPolicy Editor" window, select User Configuration ->AdministrativeTemplates->System->Driver Installation. Then in the setting area, double click the "Code signing for device drivers" option (Orright click then select edit).

3. In the "Code signing fordevice drivers" windows, select the "Disable" option and clickOK. After that the driver signature enforcement will be disabled.

4. For safety, it's recommended to enable the driver signature enforcement again after the DAC driver installation completes.

Method 2:
1.Go to Start->All programs->Accessories, then right click Command Promptand select "Run as administrator". Or you can search for it using theSearch box.

2. Enter the below command in the cmd menu. (You may also try to copy the command then right click on the cmd menu, select Paste and press the Enter key).

Appendix II: Update Windows 7for accepting SHA256 certificates

Our driver package is signed with a SHA256 certificate. Windows 8 and 10 accept this SHA256 certificate by default.
On Windows 7 Microsoft has released a patch to also accept SHA256 certificates. You will get it through Windows update or you can be downloaded here:  https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=46148
The description from Microsoft can be found here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3033929
Windows 7 only accepts SHA1 certificates by default. But SHA1 certificates are deprecated and shouldn't be used anymore. You also don't get new SHA1 certificates from the certificate providers.
Please update your Windows 7 systems and try again installing the driver.
