Roland Audio Drivers Not Compatible With Windows 8.1

This is the challenge as Windows 8.1 rolls out across the world.

The device drivers for many popular audio, video and printer devices may not be available. Without a signed 8.1 driver, you are out of luck until the manufacturer releases it.   Update – see below for Roland’s response.

Update October 23, 2013 – Roland releases the drivers for Windows 8.1

Last year Roland was on the bit with Windows 8.0 drivers and delivered them almost concurrently with Windows 8. Windows 8 shipped on October 26th, 2012 and the Roland drivers on November 2, 2012.

Windows 8 drivers will not work on Windows 8.1 so if you have any of Roland’s audio products you might consider waiting until they are announced.

This holds true for any device like a video card or printer as well. If you update too soon, the affected device probably won’t work.

QuestionWhen will the Windows 8.1 64 bit drivers for the UA-25EX be available? The current drivers are signed for Windows 8.0 and Windows 8.1 will not accept them.

Thank you. Stephen Pate
