Why can’t my computer locate the drivers when I install the Windows version of OceanView, OmniDriver, OmniDriver+SPAM, SpectraSuite, or Overture?

When you install the Windows version of software, the driver installation works a little differently for some spectrometers.

After you install the software, attach your spectrometer to the computer.  Once you have done this, the “Windows Found New Hardware” wizard will open, but may not find the device driver.

  1. Go to Device Manager and find the “Ocean Optics spectrometer” (it should be under the category “Other Devices”).
  2. Right click on the “Ocean Optics spectrometer” and select “Update Driver Software.”  You will get a choice of finding the driver automatically or “Browse My Computer.”
  3. Select Browse and then browse to the following directory:
    1. OceanView: “C:\Program Files\Ocean Optics\OceanView\SystemFiles.”  Please be sure to select the “SystemFiles” directory, and not either of the subfolders.
    2. OmniDriver: “C:\Program Files\Ocean Optics\OmniDriver\winusb_driver.”  Please be sure to select the “winusb_driver” directory, and not either of the subfolders.
    3. OmniDriver+SPAM: “C:\Program Files\Ocean Optics\OmniDriver+SPAM\winusb_driver.”  Please be sure to select the “winusb_driver” directory, and not either of the subfolders.
    4. SpectraSuite: “C:\Program Files\Ocean Optics\SpectraSuite\SystemFiles.”  Please be sure to select the “SystemFiles” directory, and not either of the subfolders.
    5. Overture: “C:\Program Files (x86)\Ocean Optics\Overture\winusb_driver.”  Please be sure to select the “winusb_driver” directory, and not either of the subfolders.
  4. After you select the appropriate directory, click “OK” and then “Next” and you may get a message that “Windows cannot verify the publisher.”
  5. Click on “Install Anyway” and the device driver installation will begin.
  6. It should display “Your hardware was installed successfully” when finished.
