FlashLink Manager Device Driver will not install on Win 8.1

0 votes
I installed the latest version of Flashlink Manager 3.52 on my Windows 8.1 computer, but the Device driver fails to install. When I try to manually install the device driver for the FlashLink2 in Windows Device Driver, I get an error that the device driver could not be installed.

   Any ideas?

  1. restart your computer
  2. do not open the flash -link manager
  3. plug in the usb with the flash link updater (the red puck), a little box will appear on the bottom right corner of your screen
  4. let the computer install the driver
  5. open up the flash-link manager program once the driver has installed correctly.


I use my flash-link on a Windows 8.1 Pro without issues.
