USB Footswitch software not working (SOLVED)

  • colinquek Friday, May 11, 2012 7:00 PM Reply
    Ok i found the solution to this problem.
    1. What u need to do is go to the actual program folder. I.e. C:\Program Files (x86)\PCsensor\Hid FootSwitch V5.1
    2. Look for Hid FootSwitch.exe
    3. Right click it and Run As Administrator.

    The shortcut the program creates is crap, so delete it, create a new one.
    Under the Advanced option, make it to Run As Administrator.

    Now it works properly.
    With regards to SKU 56508, usb footswitch, the supplied software is not working.
    Keeps saying "cant find device".

    Ive went to PCSensor's website to download their old / latest drivers, still cannot work.
    Anyone has any answer?
    Thanks much in advance.

    Hello , I need help also for this problem ( under Windows 7 )

    I have bought 5 items of this Footcontroler by an Ebay Seller from Hongkong ( incl. the installation CD

    with not the newest Software , but I tried allready all Software Versions from HID Footswitch 4.0 to 6.5.2. from the

    pcsensor homepage , nothing recognizes the Devices )

    Strange thing is , one of those 5 Controllers installes with other Device Name HK6-F1.6 after plugin in into USB

     and this Controller works fine! (The software finds it!!)  the other 4 have Device Name "USB Composite Device" which are from

    Windows view also recognized and working but not found from the software...

    Anybody an idea how to force on these devices also the HK6 Device driver installation ??

    If you are having the issue "Can't find device" on Windows 10,  try downloading v6.9.3 from here: http://software.pcsensor.com/pc_en.html.

    Hi, there is a solution  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOuhyxp1C2Y

    It helps me on Win 10.

    1. Navigate to Control Panel->Clock and Region->Region->Change date time or...->Additional settings

    2. Change "Decimal sympol" option from "," to "."

    3. OK, Close, restart a program, enjoy :).
