Manually Installing the VeriMark™ IT Driver



  • In most instances, the driver for VeriMark IT will automatically install when VeriMark IT is connected to a USB-A port on your computer.
  • If for some reason the driver does not install upon VeriMark IT being connected to your computer (VeriMark IT is shown as “Unknown Device” within Device Manager), you can manually install the driver following the below steps.
    • The reason why the driver didn’t automatically install can vary; most often it is due to either a restriction by your IT group, or your computer being unable to connect to Windows server.
  • While the instructions below leverage screen shots from Windows 7, the following procedures work for Windows 10 as well.
