How do I install the Jungo WinDriver for LabPro, LabQuest, and LabQuest Mini manually?

This document has information for device drivers that work with older versions of Logger Pro. If you are using a Logger Pro version 3.11 or newer with LabQuest Mini or original LabQuest, or Logger Pro 3.12 or newer with LabPro see:
TIL 4043: Are the device drivers installed correctly? (For Windows with LabPro, original LabQuests, LabQuest Mini, and LabQuest Stream)

Logger Pro relies on USB device drivers to communicate with the LabPro, LabQuest, or LabQuest Mini on Windows.

TIL 2501: Windows Pre-Logger Pro 3.11 original LabQuest and LabQuest Mini, and pre-3.12 LabPro drivers
TIL 2851: Are the LabQuest 2 device drivers installed correctly?

If the device drivers are not installed properly by the regular Logger Pro installer, the first solution is always to remove Logger Pro and re-install with a Vernier installer. The USB driver installation is not simple, and the installer for Logger Pro has been tested extensively on multiple combinations of hardware, software, and operating systems.

On some computers, the installer fails to completely install the driver. Sometimes the driver can still be successfully installed manually.

If these steps do not work, the computer may be incompatible with 3rd party drivers in general:

TIL 2550: Does Logger Pro work with Universal Imaging Utility?
However, you may have other options to try, but the only solution may be to use a regular version of Windows.
