This is an annoying issue. This error is stopping you from installing the driver of your device. And you are probably thinking what are you supposed to do to get rid of this error.

But don’t worry. It is still possible to get it fixed. Here are three fixes you should try:

Method 1: Install drivers with another method
Method 2: Perform a clean system re-installation
Method 3: Contact the device manufacturer
