    I previously had success installing the driver a few times and running payloads easily. But i uninstalled the driver and TegraRCMGUI because its not my personal computer and I dont want my dad thinking im installing viruses.

    Can anybody help ke understand why the driver fails to install each time I try now? .

    This might help for your driver issue. Go into RCM mode and plug in your USB from switch to PC choose APX in device list and arrow down and use libusbK (v3.0.7.0) after install APX should show up under device manager.

    Maybe try installing the driver via zadig -> https://zadig.akeo.ie/ also run as admin and maybe you must select show all devices.

    Try a different cable and also check to see if there's any conflict that shows up in device manager.

    .
    AFAIK imstalling drivers dont require you to have any device connected or cables. And it does show up in device manager as APX and not having any drivers installed

    Ill take it you don't install many USB devices to your PC very much. I often get devices for PCs where manufacturers include that as part of the install process. Read this https://github.com/rajkosto/TegraRcmSmash scroll down and read driver setup.

    Ah well i see. But i did plug it in and APX did show up in the list and i chose that driver and it said "user cancelled installation" when in fact I did not cancel it.

    Do i need to install An APX driver if I get my hands on a chrome book?

    Speaking from experience, I've had this occur to me on my Windows 7 PC and Laptop where both refused to install the drivers. After randomly toying around with the USB ports from both computers, eventually it installed the drivers onto my W7 PC. But I didn't really do anything noteworthy to get it work, it just sort of happened.

    I've also seen other Windows 10 users struggle from getting the drivers to install too with no clear reason why no matter how much help was offered. If you have really set up everything properly and the drivers are not being installed, it may be worth using something else to send payloads with like an Android, iOS, or another Windows OS in the meantime.

    You cant use tegrasmash on a chromebook. You may get lucky using the android app but i dont know how youd turn on OTG in a chromebook. Its not windows you know
