    Lord Cavendish is correct, you pretend to have an answer or more correctly a driver or fix but don’t. your crappy piece of software is rubbish or more correctly Junk.

    Yeah…that’s not a fix at all. I’ve done all this, including use the ‘free’ version of the software. Uninstalling/reinstalling the drivers until they work…doesn’t work.

    what you provide is not an answer, just a way to sell your junk software..

      Hi Lord Cavendish,

      Thanks for your comment. Driver Easy has Free version and Pro version. Users can use the Free version to solve any drivers that they have including the Renesas driver. But please understand the drivers need to be installed one by one with the Free version.
