|Very good performance can be achieved at ANY computer running Windows 11 or Windows 10.
Windows 11 with latest updates is recommended. Outdated Windows 7/8 systems are still supported.
To achieve best results we recommend to use (Winter 2020/2021):
Starting from Version 10.48:
OptiLayer software follows the highest modern software standards.
If you have problems with installation, please read our Frequently Asked Questions (Hardware).
Problem with USB III:
USB III controllers at some modern computers may suspend communications with the hardware key in some quite rare cases. This problem can be easily fixed: just try other USB ports! It is better to use not USB III, but classical USB II ports. In cases if your computer has only USB III connections, you can use any cheap USB hub that will automatically downgrade USB III to USB II.Alternatively it is possible to reprogram the dongle to a different mode that is 100% compatible with all USB III controllers. Please, contact us at email@example.com for more information.
Windows 10 or 11 crashes during OptiLayer Installation
In some new laptops a new security option: «Memory Integrity» is activated. It was introduced just recently and by default this option is not active. This option should increase security of your device, but unfortunately it conflicts with non-Microsoft drivers, including the drivers supplied with OptiLayer software.
It can happen that this option is ON and disabled (greyed). In this case the control of this option is occurred with so-called Group Policy. This situation is trickier, most likely you will need to contact your IT department to change Memory Integrity to OFF. You can also contact us directly for further instructions.
