How to reinstall WibuKey after a complete uninstall?
- Remove all WibuBoxes
- Open the WibuKey Tool in the Control Panel and switch to "Installation"
- Click the "Plug & Play" button to reset the plug and play mechanism
- Open the Control Panel and uninstall the WibuKey driver.
- Open [%systemroot%\inf] (usually C:\Windows\inf).
- Search for all oem*.inf files with the name containing "WIBU". Delete all *.pnf files with the same name and then the *.inf files. For Windows 7 Users: if there is no other file besides wibukeyPCMCIA.inf, refine your search options.
- Check in C:\Windows\System32\drivers or C:\Windows\SysWOW64\drivers, if the Wibukey*.sys was removed; if not delete it.
- Delete the following registry entries, if they are still there. Open registry via Windows button in task bar and type regedit.
a) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services - search for "WIBUKEY" and/or "WibuKey2" and delete, if found.
b) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WIBU-SYSTEMS - delete directory, if found.
c) KEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\WIBU-SYSTEMS - delete directory, if found.
- Restart your computer.
Now you can start reinstalling WibuKey:
- Run the WibuKey Driver setup with administrative privileges. Make sure that no WibuBox is attached yet!
- After the setup is completed, attach your WibuBox.
- Windows should automatically install all ardware drivers since Wibu-Systems drivers since Version 5.0 are Microsoft certified.
After Windows recognizes the WibuBox correctly you can start the WibuKey-Software. You are able to test this via the WibuKey Tool in the Control Panel using page "Tests".
